Yesterday was the first day of school for my girls. I have to admit that I hated to see them go back to school. I like having them near me. Maybe you have heard me say that before.
But, send them back to school I must. And in that case, I decided to make the best of the situation and have a party.
So, I invited the women in my ward over for a little back to school breakfast. Just like my mom used to do. And it took my mind off my absent girls. Except, it made me realize that I haven't made an effort to make new friends in a long time. And then it made me start wondering how I am perceived by others. But, I had to stop that- and not go there. Cause that can get depressing. (Please tell me I'm not the only one who ever has these thoughts.) So I didn't go there and I had a great time.
It was nice to visit with a few ladies. And eat.
When I picked up my newly-kindergartened middle daughter this afternoon, I asked her what she learned today. She told me, "I didn't learn today. That teacher doesn't teach us ANYTHING!"
That cracked me up. What I think is that she has a sneaky teacher- because middle daughter learned a few things, like what a cube is. And how to draw a picture of what she does to get ready for school. And how to sit properly in a classroom.
To sum up: it has been a good first week of school so far. And I have remembered to pick them up both days. (remember this post?)
