Am I the only one that thinks school starts earlier and earlier every year? What happened to post-labor day? That was nice. Isabelle started first grade on Wednesday and had a really smooth week. same school, same little friends, same schedule. Me getting up early is not as smooth… it always takes me awhile to adjust from summer to alarm at 6:20 get up, get going, hurry hurry out the door. Lincoln is really missing his pal though… the first couple of days he just moped around and said, “I miss Belle. When is she done with school. I miss her.” Linc is the only one that Isabelle permits to call her “belle.” It’s really sweet. Truth be told I miss Isabelle too- one because shes a sweetie pie, easy and she makes everything fun, and two because she and Linc are great little playmates. One kid = more work than two at this stage.
Schedule is good for us, we always do better with a routine. Linc will start school soon. Then we will have a baby! I will say… I could do without the heat. I’m done. Being this pregnant this late in the summer…. I’m over it. 105 everyday just makes it hard to go run errands/play outside/do school pick up. Unloading groceries = my workout.
Anyway, I did a little interview of Isabelle so I can remember a few of her favorites things at the beginning of first grade.

The night before school started, we were gathering Isabelle’s backpack and lunch box and making sure she had everything. She said, “Mom cmere I have a secret!” She zipped open a little pouch on the front of her lunch box and she said, “See look I saved all of your notes!” And inside the little pocket were a bunch of the notes I stuck on her napkin in her lunchbox everyday for the last school year. And I nearly cried, what in the world did I do to deserve the SWEETEST most ADORABLE little girl in the whole entire world. Isabelle, we love you.
1 thought on “aaaaand we’re back to school.”
The notes are my fave! Not only that she kept them, but that you wrote them. Hope you are great, I don't read blogs much these days, so glad to catch up.Love you all!
