She certainly lived in a mighty small spot.
And she picked a beautiful weekend to leave.
School starts Wednesday. Laura is so excited that we went by her school to read her teacher’s name on the door. She couldn’t wait until open house tomorrow to learn it. At the orientation last week the school counselor sent all the children off on a scavenger hunt while she talked to the parents.
Find both gyms.
Which gym has green mats?
What is in the open room in the hall with room 106?
And so on and so on. Because she spent an hour scouring the school with fellow new students, Laura knows everything!, including the location of her room. “Easy, peasy, grandma.”
Emily got up at six this morning, to get into the swing of school. I teased her about having nothing to do and she said she would walk the dog with Uncle Tom. Now for the brutal part. For Uncle Tom. Emily’s bus leaves at 6:45 am and Laura’s leaves at 8:00 am. For the rest of the school year. But not until Wednesday.
