Back to...


...having to leave the house no later than 8:28am in order to make it on time.

...eating a banana and toast in the car on the way.

...praying that I catch the green arrow to turn left.

...embarrassing encounters (like, say, being pulled over for speeding) with other adults that include me bra-less, wearing Clint's size 11 running shoes because they were the closest thing to the door.

...embarrassing encounters (like, say, driving into the back of someone's car) with other adults that include me bra-less, shoe-less because there were no shoes close to the door.

...frantic searches for my sunglasses to hide the mascara smudges around my eyes.

...school.



Back to school

Sara said...

She looks darling! How'd you get her hair to flip up?

I can't tell if you're sad or happy that school is back in session. ?! Emma looks adorable though :)

Funny! We have 11 more days and Alexis has to be ready by 7:30am to be at school on time!!!!!! That is gonna be a tough one with a newborn. I already told her that if I don't get up to put her hair in a headband for the day. I am sure her classmates are going to be so tired of seeing her hair like that day after day!

I have until August 25th before school starts. It will be interesting to try and get two kids ready for school on time, and until Gretchen is ready to go in by herself I'll actually have to be dressed. Here's to a no-tickets school year!

Maybe I should take her to school-for a price. I've been up every day this week at 6:00AM so no problem.

Ha! Are those things that have happened in the past? She's such a little lady! So grown up in her uniform! We have to be to the bus stop at 7:30am, which means early mornings for everyone! Ugh!

Sophia still asks for "Awma!" occasionally. It's super sweet.
