Back to School

(We are currently having a gnat infestation all over Guam. They were swarming at the bus stop!!)

(5th grade already? Sigh)

( big 3rd grader)

(big 2nd grader)


(It was so humid outside I had to keep wiping all the mist off of my camera lens!)
Mason woke up at 3:30.
Ethan woke up at 4:30.
Ivan woke up at 5:00.
Harmony woke up at 5:45.
I forced Connor awake at 6:15.
Bus came a little late but is usually here at 6:50.
Backpacks loaded.
Haircuts.
New shoes.
Lunch bags packed with a love note from Mom.
Bus passes tied to backpacks.
The house is quiet.
Pure bliss.

YAY! I'm so excited for you. Isn't it nice to finally have a little peace and quiet? I'm loving it.

Boy, I thought it was bad that my kids have to be at the bus stop by 7:15 - 6:50 is brutal.

6:50 is really early. What time do classes start? Grandpa goes back to school Tuesday but he doesn't have to be there until 10:30. Now Mason gets one on one time with Mommy.

Yay for school! And HOORAY for peace and quiet!
And 6:50 is WAY early--my kids get on the bus at 7:45! Happy schooling!

Last year the kids had to leave our house by 7:40 to catch the bus, and school started at 8:15. But now we live a little further. So they get on at 6:50. Doors open at 7:20 and then classes start at 7:45. They are the first in our housing to get picked up. We haven't heard if Ivan will be morning or afternoon pre-k. The kids are praying he is morning so I will take them. Pre-k doesn't have bus services so if Ivan goes by car they might as well all go by car!

Sounds like Ethan was excited for school to start. Jadyn starts kindergarten this year and is very excited! The kids are getting so big. :)

At least they are seemed excited. It must have been so humid out. You should have just said you fogged the edges of the photos like you did it on purpose. :)
