The First Day of School - 2013
We aren't within walking distance anymore and there is no bus from this area to the school so I get to drive them - it'll be three times a day once Aoife starts! I don't really see this being much of a problem. Once I start work up again, I'm going to be out doing workshops most mornings anyway and I'll just pick Aoife up on the way to get Declan from hourly care.
Once we got to the school we went inside and it was a MAD HOUSE! People everywhere and no one knew where they were supposed to be. Also since very few soldiers are deployed right now, most kids had both parents with them. We managed to find the table that Aidan is supposed to wait at with his class until the teacher comes and gets them. I snapped this picture as he sat down and within seconds he was up and walking to class!
Everyone was tired at bedtime tonight. They didn't even complain about going to bed at our normal bedtimes. The girls had lights out at 7:15 and Aidan had lights out at 8:30 and was asleep by 8:31. Declan seems to be the only one not sleeping well tonight - I'm pretty sure he's getting more teeth. Hopefully we'll make it through the night OK - we'll be up bright and early again tomorrow!!
