Aaaaand time marches on. I feel as though we just did this, but it was, in fact, an entire year ago.
Yesterday, our girls started back to school. And as per our photo tradition, we took some photos at 6:45 am…and they feigned enthusiasm.
And the Bee
Lots of nerves and stomachs all a flutter here. Not quite sure why there was all this anxiety.
They’ve done it all before.
I asked Falafel if she was excited to go back to school. She said she was excited for school to begin…so it can end.
Papa lent her his special martian friend to ease any first day jitters. That seemed to work!
The Bee was most concerned with Algebra.
I think she’ll be fine.
Last year of Junior High. It’s only the beginning.
We have many special back-to-school traditions, really. The girls get to choose what we have for dinner. They always look forward to this. Some years it is very elaborate, but this year, luckily, it was super simple.
GF chicken nuggets and GF corndogs.
I also ask them a few questions so we can remember this time a little better.
When they both got home, we found out that everyone had lovely days and love all their teachers.
I call that a huge success.
How was your first day back?
