Another year of school has started. This year wasn't like the past couple of years where both girls were going to Elementary and everything about the school was familiar. Nope! This year, we were starting our first day of school at the Middle School.
Brenna's teacher this year is Mrs. Revak. And, yes! I got my annual picture of student and teacher on the first day of school. I'm sure this was the last year for this picture to happen.
When I picked Brenna up at the end of the day, she had nothing but great things to report. I was so thankful. Of course, it was a little weird for her, having to change classes and all but she really seemed to enjoy it. I just hope this continues all year!
Once I had Brenna at school, it was time to focus on Alyssa.
Mrs. Boyd is an amazing teacher and we are excited about our year with her! She just became a mommy earlier this year and realizes now just how special these types of pictures are. (I'm sure deep down though, she is dreading the day she has to start taking these pictures. HA!)
Ethan and I headed for home once we had the girls at school. It was weird having just my little boy home with me, alone. We decided that our house was too quiet and met some friends down at McDonald's for some play time. From there, we decided to do a little school shopping for Ethan. I had picked up a few things while out shopping for the girls but wanted to have some special time shopping with Ethan and letting him pick out a couple of things. As we were getting in the van, he asked if he could invite Grammy to come along. I called Mom, she was just finishing with her hair appointment so we met her at her house after her appointment and we headed to Bellingham. Unfortunately, the trip wasn't as successful as I had hoped. I love getting things for Ethan at Old Navy and they were wiped out. There wasn't much on their racks in the boys section. And Target really wasn't much better. I guess we should have gone earlier...oh well! We found a couple of cute things.
