First Day of School

'Twas the night before the first day of school....  And the kids were as ready for school as they could possibly be.  We started school very late this year because we were waiting on a new elementary school to be ready.  Of course in middle school, volleyball, choir, and band started quite a while ago, which means I have been running Emma to school since almost the beginning of August.
 Two middle schoolers this year?!?!
 Everyone was ready for school by the time Dad, Emma and Elizabeth had to leave, so we had a group picture.  Emma put on her Web Leader t-shirt because she's one of those big 8th graders who gets to show the little 6th graders around and do team building games.  Except it got cancelled today because of the rain.  Rain on the first day of school in Sunnyside?  Who has ever heard of such a thing?
 Then we had to wait and wait and wait until I could take Annie and Maddie to school.  It's so hard to wait.  Whoever said "Patience is a virtue" was not 7 years old and eager to go to school.
2nd graders!  Look out, world!
 The good news is taking pictures can eat up a few of those long minutes.

And then I came back home feeling a mixture of relief (no more fighting during the day! Yay!) and sadness (my babies are gone...).
