1st Day of School

Off they went, fearless and happy, ready to take on 2nd grade and Kindergarten, respectively.  They each had a great first day but Wayne and I were reminded quickly of how painful the first week or so of school is.  Oh they are happy enough to go and enjoy it but really melt down quickly at home until their bodies adjust to the new schedule.  I had 4 melt downs this morning over silly things(like who got to hold a pencil at the breakfast table.  seriously.  a. pencil. at. breakfast.  No one even had any paper to write on!) and Wayne enjoyed some with them last night too.  Oh well, a small price to pay for the enjoyment of learning at school.

This morning was my first day off with the both of them gone and it took about 2 minutes to really relish the difference of having only 1 child instead of 2 home.  I got so much done!!  Here's hoping that the new schedule will produce a cleaner more organized house and some nice home-cooked meals, even in volleyball season!

Tonight we are participating in Light the Night, a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  So after a shortish practice, most of our volleyball girls will be heading out to walk in honor of our Varsity Assistant, Rick Andre, who is currently battling(successfully) lymphoma.  Our whole family is going so we'll see how 2 very tired girls do...
