Almost First Graders

on August 29, 2014

Today is our last day at summer camp. If I never have to pack up two snacks, lunch, a water bottle, swimsuit, towel, and sunscreen again until next June, I will be a happy camper. We are all over it and ready for school to start. Their backpacks and lunchboxes are trashed from the summer, and I will happily pitch them in the garbage once we’re home. (As well as Laney’s favorite pair of summer shoes that STINK something fierce.) I hope they like school lunch because I want at least a week off.

Today is also Meet Your Bus Driver and Meet Your Teacher! We had an inkling who their teachers were from the end of the school year, and were happy to see that confirmed this week. Caden’s teacher from last year is moving up to first grade, which will ease her transition big time. Delaney has a teacher we’ve heard amazing things about. I think she used to be an engineer? Delaney is very into building things right now, so that’s a perfect fit. We even got our same bus stop this year, we are ready to go.

We have a few things planned for September, but in our down time we will be organizing the house from top to bottom. They’ve grown out of a lot of their toys, so I’m hoping to figure out what I can sell in a garage sale next spring, and what should go to Goodwill. I’d also like to reclaim the basement toy room and turn it back into a guest bedroom. They haven’t played down there in a year, might as well clean it out and make use of it.

Tuesday was my six year blogging anniversary here. I always mean to post something retrospective on that date, but it slips my mind every year. As the girls get older I make more and more of an effort to respect their privacy. This blog has become about more than just them out of necessity. As we move into first grade, I often wonder what, if anything will change. I’ve considered posting less, or focusing more on pictures, but nothing has really felt right to me. Yet. The daily outfit pictures will make a comeback, as I’ve loved looking through last September’s pictures and seeing their long hair! But beyond that, we shall see.

    I have enjoyed watching them become so comfortable in the water this summer. They no longer have the fear of the deep water where they can’t touch bottom. Wish we had a diving board at the lake pool!

    I’ve been reading about your girls since before they were twinkling in your eye. Though I understand the need for their privacy, I’d miss the updates. I feel like I know your kids through your posts. ❤
