Back to School

Back to school for the girls...well the 'back' part just applies to Hailey. This is Paigey's first year of school. So first of all...I've been dreading this day basically since I graduated from High school. I am NOT a morning person! Nope not at all. Anything before 9AM hurts...really really bad. Back when I finished seminary and high school I realized that if I wanted to accomplish my big dreams of marrying and having children, I'd have to eventually wake up early again. I tried my hardest to delay the inevitable. I managed all through university to not have a class before 10:30 am. Then there was about 5 years there where I worked full time Downtown...and those years were full of ponytails and yesterday's makeup. I had a really hard time getting up and ready. And then a glorious thing happened...I had Hailey... AND she was a great sleeper. An amazing sleeper. Sleeping passed 9am was normal. And then Paige. Same story. Even Cait...she's a great sleeper too!! When Hailey started kindergarten this morning business was bearable because she only went twice a week. BUT I knew those days would end once she started full time in grade one...and they did. I now have at least another 15 years of early waking!!! I'm going to have to change my ways!

So anyway...waking up early isn't that bad. I think it would be better if I could guarantee winter would never show up. Right now the days start at 7:30am, we eat breakfast, get dressed and hop on bikes and scooters and enjoy our short journey to the bus stop. The weather is beautiful, and I'm seriously thinking I could do this happily for the next 15+ years. That is if I could keep this kind of perfect summer weather. Unfortunately, I know winter's on its way and I will have to figure out a way to enjoy trudging through the snow in below freezing weather. are the girls on their first day of school. They go to different schools...which makes things a little hectic at pick up time. But it's going to be a great year full of learning and lost library books!
