And apparently, it's my uterus. Now you all know.
But yes- last week marked the first days of school. Which were easy because they don't really do anything those first days on the short week, do they? No. So this is the week where I feel like if I can just come up with a system right off at the beginning, I can beat it this year. I can beat the chaos, the trying to be on top of snacks and forms and class participation projects and so on.
You all know what I'm talking about.
So, I've got myself a system. I really hope to keep it together all year so at no point in the year will I feel like I'm being dragged ass first through bushes and wondering if I paid for the newest activity, did I turn that permission slip in, did we read enough the night before and sweet jesus did I sign the homework page??
But you want to see pictures and here they are.
Olivia was a bit more apprehensive but she is every fall so now I'm learning not to worry so much. Here's hoping we have no bathroom accidents though. But she is taking school very seriously and every night she is meticulous in going through her folder, reading, doing homework, etc. It's really great that she is so conscientious about learning as much as she can and just going her assignments as she's told. She is very much a mini me in that regard.
Then after I picked them up on their first day, I saw Jackson first and he immediately declares that it was the very best day EVER. Even Olivia said she had a great day and enjoyed organizing her supplies. Which, not going to lie, I squealed. Mostly because I love supplies and I always loved organizing them too. Now... if she would only get that excited while cleaning her room...
