First Day of School!!!

I had planned on getting a coming home photo, but it was pouring down rain. Soooo... yes, I was one of those mothers who drove 2 doors down and picked up her child from the bus stop!!!! It is still thundering and we had to run out with umbrellas to get our children. One sweet mom did have her camera out trying to get photos. Her boys were running off the bus so fast I do not think she was able to get anything... I will try again tomorrow. Now off to finish house work, get supper started, take photos for Kelli's Show and Share....
Posted Earlier Today
And I am not ready for the Summer to be over! :-( I miss my baby. After teaching my class, I left the aerobic room and looked around the arcade area for my baby girl. I miss her. I miss my buddy. 3 hours and 8 minutes, I go get her at the bus stop. :D

Speaking of bus stops, here we are in the wee hours of the morning waiting for the bus. We walk. Being a fitness instructor, and the stop being only 2 houses away, I think it is ridiculous for parents to get in a car and drive.... (And we wonder why these kids are getting so fat!) I just walk down there with my morning coffee and enjoy it while I wait with her. In the afternoon, I walk to the stop to get her. Sometimes I take Her Majesty, The African Queen... ahem, Grey, Zoey with me.

ME is straining to get a smile out. She is hating having her photo taken. I had to tell her that a neighbors cat was behind her to get her to smile. ;-) Worked didn't it? Even if it is a fake smile. LOL!

Now this is an excited, genuine smile. ME loves Miss Sherry her bus driver and loves school. Our school is one of the top 10 elementary schools in the country. And she thrives in it. The main reason I do not homeschool her. We are very fortunate to be in this particular school district.

Because we get up so early in the morning, DD is not hungry. She loves to ride the bus (social hour I understand). Then there is the "Breakfast Club" according to the lunch room manager. DD is a big part of that "Breakfast Club". Apparently the school breakfasts are not like what mommy makes. "They are really good!" LOL!

We do make lunch together. PBJ on whole wheat, grape tomatoes, yogurt, gold fish, 2 petite scones (I'll post about in a later post) and fruit. Of course, everyone is encouraged to bring a water bottle to keep on their desk. It is hot here and hydration is a must.

Will post more after she gets home from school!

Slide over on that couch, Missy. My buddy went back to school yesterday. The house is certainly quiet!

Hope ME has a great 1st day!
