Headed off to Second Grade!
Wednesday was the first day of school here where I live and luckily for the kids, it was still warm and sunny. (after about 3 weeks of heat and humidity, we have gone to very cool evenings in the 40's and what I believe is the start of Fall weather) Deja was pleased with her back to school outfit and new Bratz backpack on wheels that Grandma got her.
So far, so good-she really enjoys her new teacher Miss Saulter and happily showed me the goodie bags filled with candy and other treats that Miss Saulter gave to everyone in the class. Apparently, Miss Saulter isn't worried about 18 children running around her room at the end of the day suffering from a sugar high. That in itself tells me she is a pretty patient woman, because I seriously doubt I could handle that many kids daily. Heck, Deja is a diva drama queen just by herself, so it will be interesting to see how the year plays out.
They are predicting LOTS of rain for tomorrow... as the tropical storm or whatever is left of Danny makes its way into New England. So much for the BBQ we had planned! All that rain (3-5 inches predicted) is going to make the weekend soggy, as the ground is most likely to be saturated as well on Sunday, even if it is clear. Lucky for me, the BBQ will go out-but we'll all be inside instead. Once a month a great group of friends get together to chat, so it will be fun even if the sun isn't shining :)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone, enjoy the time spent with family, friends or just some time alone to yourself. I plan on getting caught up on email (yikes! Almost 1000 unread!) Earlier bed times leave lots of work to do nightly, but there isn't much I can do about that-I hate sharing the bathroom, so have to get up early to get in there ahead of everyone else! Sigh... the joys of sharing the house with two teens, a baby, a 7 yr old going on 18, and of course hubby and the four cats. If it's not a kid wanting to get in, it's a cat scratching to be let in to go in the litter box, lol. Enjoy the weekend folks!
