Today is the first day of school. Charis, number 4 and our youngest, started Kindergarten this morning. I felt a little bit of tears welling up as I left her room, but mostly I was excited for her. She is very ready to go to school with the big kids.
After settling everyone in their various places around the school, I headed to the gym to sign up for volunteering for the year. I talked with a few parents I know, and then headed out to leave. Upon searching my purse, I couldn’t find my keys. I looked in the van, and they were hanging from the ignition. I guess all the excitement of getting all 4 kids and all their stuff out was too much for me to grab my keys before locking the door. Guess what, after nearly 20 minutes on hold, I found out that I hadn’t signed up for roadside assistance with my cell phone provider. (I have, btw, now 🙂 So a few more minutes and $35 later with the help of the car repair place that we should own stock in, I was able to depart the school parking lot.
Now, on to some photos:
