* update includes each boys' favorite part of the school day
Well the boys started school today. They were excited and happy to go - which makes me excited and happy. Sure, I'm a little sad not having them and their noises around. Truly. But I love school (I wish I was going back to school today, too!) and just love it being a part of our home. Let me rephrase that - I love elementary school. There.
Here are our traditional photos:
And what did I do all morning with the boys gone? I deep-cleaned their rooms! Wahoo! Not only does it look clean, it is clean (ahem, boys, under/behind beds!? Come on.)
The girls played and screamed. I reorganized the children's bookshelf and now it looks awesome. For a day probably. Then I had an errand and it was easy-peasy with 2 children.
And now Lucy is napping, dinner is being readied, and Emmy is playing with her best-friend and our neighbor, Lily. Yay!
I can't wait to hear how it goes for the boys. I hope they have a fantastic day!
Miles' favorite thing about his first day of school:
Miles reported that his favorite part was when they got all the school supplies out of their backpacks and went through them. He was super happy that he got to keep a lot of his eraser-toppers and his silver pencils (they were out of the typical yellow ones!).
Jonas' favorite thing about his first day of school:
Jonas had two favorites: lunch. He found his best-buddy Jake (they are in different classes this year) and they ate lunch together. His other favorite: the birthday party. Wow, on the first day?! I guess those summer birthdays got to be celebrated today - cupcakes, plus a goodie bag of toys and treat. Yeah, that's a pretty good day.
