1st Day of School

So, here we are. The first day of school has arrived. It was a very long day! I was up at 5:50 a.m. to cook a real breakfast - bacon, eggs and biscuits. Okay, so my hubby cooked the eggs, but I did the rest. Anyway, the kids ate well, for once, on a school day. Usually, breakfast consists of cereal or a Pop-Tart, but I try to be a good mom at least a couple of times a year. After all of the eating and dressing and gathering of backpacks, we actually got out of the driveway three minutes early. YEA!!! That almost never happens. (I'm one of those people who is late everywhere I go) After dropping off three kids at three different schools, I had the day to myself. Well, I had one kid at home, so practically by myself.
So, what did I do today? I spent some much needed time with my little one. I caught up on laundry and was able to get some sewing done as well. Then, I got to go sit in the school pick-up line for over an hour (again at three different schools). Everyone had a good day. My oldest started middle school today. I was a little concerned about the switching classes, but she made it through unscathed. YEA! My oldest son had a good day but reported that, "someone was mean to me". I asked who was mean to him and finally got the answer that it was "some lady teacher". Apparently he got into trouble for playing in the office chairs in the computer lab. I know they are so much fun to roll around in, but I explained that he shouldn't "play" in them again.
All and all, it was a good day. I guess tomorrow we'll be back to Pop-Tarts.
