Well, first day of school drop off is always a little anticlimactic. Noah & Carter are in the same spot as always since the middle school and high school are right next to each other. Ivy will get out at the same place as Gray now. I parked the car and followed them to their classes (despite Ivy's suggestion that I just not.) I left feeling happy they are settled and also a little bit that's it?
I got my iced coffee at the drive up and came home to SILENCE.
The day went by so fast. I decided to stay close to home since it was the first day and all, and you just never know. Before I knew it, it was time to pick them up and now I have a stack of papers to read and sign and everyone is raiding the kitchen. I'm not going to lie, a moment ago I took possibly my first deep breath of the day and felt a great peace. I love having them back home. And I think we're going to have a great year, or a great however long we're here.
(day ninety one!)
