1st Day Back


1st Day Back
Originally uploaded by sammi's mom
Well, school started back up today, and for the first time we put Samantha on the bus. For the last two days, whenever I would mention taking the bus to school, Sammi would say, "yellow bus." So there were really no surprises when it arrived. She was fine getting settled into her seat, and Steve followed the bus to school so he could ensure she wasn't having any kind of meltdown (we weren't expecting one) and to drop off some school supplies that we couldn't very well send with her. He reported back that she looked a little dazed, but fine, when she got off the bus, and that she marched straight to her classroom and sat down with some books. Yeah, she'll be just fine! On a photographic note, the pics I took this morning mostly came out pretty bad. In addition to the ordinary lack of sunshine at that early hour, it was raining and completely dreary. Since I hate to use flash, I ended up with lots of blur. I posted a few usable ones on my flickr site, if any of you are interested.

Sammi would have me wrapped around her little finger. I bet that is just what she does to everyone she meets. Good luck in school hun.

Happy first day Dad, I mean Sammi! If Steve is like me, he'll enjoy a big cup of coffee and a little bit of quiet. Aidan is still with me of course, but the craziness in our household decreases dramatically when the big boys are at school. :o) Happy day!

She looks precious!

Oh she is to cute. I hate it when our kids don't miss us at school and they do so well. We are the ones that are the babies.

Glad that she did well on the bus - that idea is already causing concern for Anny, and Abby is several years away from that!

she looks happy to be heading off to school - hope it's a great year!
