How can it be that school starts in 3 days????
I feel like summer just started. My kids aren't even driving me crazy yet. How can it be time to send them back to school? The past week has been crazy busy getting ready for school.
I took Emily on a shopping spree. I hate when she makes these faces in pictures. But, I did that as a kid. Karma. Anyway, we had fun and got lots of nice things.
The kids went for their dentist appointment and Emily needed to get 2 teeth pulled. She had a cavity on one baby tooth and they didn't want that to ruin her permanent tooth. The other is causing her permanent tooth to totally go crooked. We've been watching it for a few years and it's not coming out. So, out the both came. She was so so nervous. I'm not even kidding. She asked us about 100 questions. She even watched youtube videos which probably did nothing to squelch her anxiety.
The numbing was a piece of cake.
She didn't feel one shot, but felt the other slightly. Then, pop pop and both teeth were out. Easy peasy. She regrets not doing it the week before at the cleaning because it was so easy.
They even gave her a balloon bouquet for being so brave. HA!
She had registration at her jr. high. We got her locker all decorated. She was an old pro and found all her classes and we were out of there in 30 minutes.
Then, she stayed to help her friends with finding classes. Her friends are all a grade below her and they are switching schools to go to Jr. High. Em is super excited to have them all with her.
Then, David and I had a date night to see John Mayer in Phoenix. It was so nice to get away with him for a few hours. We ate at his favorite place, Pino's. YUM!
Here we are at the concert.
The show was great! The things they do with a stage nowadays is fantastic.
Tonight was open house at Noah and Ben's school. Noah got the same third grade teacher that Emily and Ben had. We like her a lot. And he's in class with his best friend, Collin, so life is good.
Ben got my favorite sixth grade teacher, but his best buddy is not in his class. They've had the same class together since Kindergarten. I know he was a little bummed. But, he can still hang with him at recess and what not. Plus, it's probably a blessing in disguise as his friend is going to a different Jr. High next year. So, maybe this will make Ben find some new friends. Not that he needs a lot of friends, but it's hard when your one and only goes to another school in a year. So, I think it's good for him. Look at the seating...it's a new thing called flexible seating.
Ben actually has 3 teachers this year and his class switches for math, English and social studies/science. This is one of the other classrooms. The seating is so fun and David was headed right for the sofa!
All in all, I think it will be another great year!
