August 12th was the dreaded day....the First Day of School! But to my surprise Sam and Lily Clare were bright eyed and excited to start their new adventures! Sam started middle school this year and Lily Clare changed schools because of our move. (I must add that she LOVES her new school and is so happy we moved!) Phew!!! And it's the best of both worlds, because we are still only a couple of miles from friends, so the friendships continue!
My pretty miss!
Sam came out to tell Lily goodbye for her first day!
My handsome boy!
We've had a few glitches with the buses - and by glitches I mean that Sam was told that his bus didn't exist and I had to go pick him up on the first day and Lily Clare's driver missed our house and Lily had to stay on until the route was completed. But, they both laughed about the incidents and were not bothered!
And the bus stop is a little different this year....while for the past 6 years, I've had the company of my sweet friends, now my mornings are spent with these ladies:
They haven't given up any good gossip or new recipes, yet...so, we'll see if they warm up over time!
It's been nice to get back into a schedule and now I'm in full force on finishing the unpacking and decorating. (Don't tell anyone, we are already counting down to the first three day weekend!) :-)
