Caleb got on the bus this morning at the reasonable hour of 8am. Sure beats his 6:45am pickup from last year. Although, we were ready by 7am and waited outside for about 50 minutes because Caleb was pretty darn excited to be able to ride on the bus again. He spent the morning reciting the names of his classmates from last year. I'm so sad he's not going to the same school. At least he'll have a few friends from last year and one of the paraprofessionals from last year will be in his classroom. We also found out at the open house that a girl from his class in church (Caroline) will be in his class. The sick feeling I had about the school year is slowly going away. I'm optimistic.
Poor Eva keeps going to the door asking to get on the bus. I thought she might be excited to have all the toys to herself for an older brother abuse-free morning. I think she'll be ready for some serious playing soon enough. After the first couple days of trying to get back into the routine, I'm going to start getting a good schedule going for us that includes museums, trips to the Y, and playdates. Good stuff.
