Welp, this happened.

Both of the kids started school today, complete with no adorable chalkboard signs written in calligraphy. I guess I'll just have to remember that this was 2013, third grade and kindergarten, Oakdale, no one cried (ok, fine, I cried for just a minute...a couple of times), and Bode not only packed a huge lunch but also decided to get a tray because he couldn't resist the allure of the cafeteria food. Obviously, he's a newbie.
It was a pretty dramaless day, just like I like 'em. And they were both so worn out that they crashed at 8:30, just like I like 'em.

Bode got the same kindergarten teacher that Mia had (she's now married, thus the different name). This was truly God's handiwork because Mia was able to show him the ropes and helped him not panic and make a run for it.

I'm too busy to be sad. I'm sure this is also God's handiwork. And I'm actually just fine with it.

Wow. I don't know if it's the jewelry or what, but Mia looks so old. Beautiful kids! Nice to not have any drama on the first day.

I am two years away from this day...and yes I'm counting down. :) It will have been 11 years of taking care of kids! Glad it went well...they looked super cute :)
