First week of school down

The kids started back to school last week.

 Aidan began 5th grade on Monday and the girls began PreK on Tuesday afternoon.

Aidan absolutely loves his teacher and class and is excited to go to school every day.

The girls are thrilled with their new everyday schedule but, haven't quite figured out the afternoon thing yet. For the past two years they have gone three mornings a week.  Now they attend every day but in the afternoons.  About 10:00 every morning they break into "I am ready to go to school now" or "I am ready to see Juanita" routine.

They are also VERY tired.  Up until a few weeks ago Alayna was napping daily for a couple hours still.  The first night of school they both were in bed sound asleep by 6pm.

As the week progressed they still went to bed early but Alayna decided to wake up early too so she was beat by Friday.

Tiredness and grumpiness aside both are loving the school year, riding the bus every day and seeing their friends and Ms. Juanita everyday.

Doesn't get much better than that.

As our tradition, we always have warm cookies right out of the oven after school on the first day!

I am looking forward to a couple weeks when the girls aren't as tired and grumpy for me in the mornings.

 Maybe they will even sleep in a bit.

A girl can always dream can't she?
