(please take note that unlike last year... there are no pictures of Madison in her classroom & there are no pictures outside of the school either... I was not "allowed" to take pictures at the school this year... I obliged... grudgingly! The thought did cross my mind though to run into her orientation & give her a big fat kiss in front of all of her friends & affectionately let her know how much I was going to miss her today... but I resisted...)
I'm not sure if Olivia saw it on TV or read it in a book, but she was persistent about buying her teacher an apple for the first day of school...
Who was I to tell her no?
How was your first day of school:
Madison: It was the best day ever! I love middle school. I can't believe I didn't want to go... I have the coolest teachers in the entire world. I even have a top locker this year... that's the whipped cream on the ice cream!
Olivia: It was good. I stayed on 1 (no red light / green light this year. It's numbers 1-5) & my teachers are nice.
I'm so glad to be home with the kids these days. I feel empowered this school year & I have great expectations!
