End of First Week

end of 1st week
We survived our first week of school and a new schedule!

I have to admit, after having a summer of Lily sleeping in until 8:30am or 9:00am, it was a difficult adjustment for mama to get up at 7am too. How strange THAT even sounds since I used to get up at 5am in Arizona! Can I say that 4 years later, I'm still on AZ time, so 9am would be the equivalent of 6am?  Yeah, I didn't think so.  I love having a sleeper-inner! If she's not disturbed, that is.

It will still take some adjusting to get into the swing of things for Reagan, I think.  Andrew is able to sleep until the last minute, get up and get ready, eat and go. It's old hat. Reagan is a dawdler. It's just who she is and so she has to get up earlier to account for the dawdling. (which means, so does mama... yawn)

See, the issue is I tend to stay up a little bit later at night because... you know, the quiet. I have to just go to bed earlier. Duh.

Getting into the routine of homework, where the papers for parents go, the habit of having assignment books signed, and putting things back in backpacks (so they're not forgotten in the morning) is always an adjustment at the beginning of the year. So far so good.

This week marks the beginning of a complete week of new schedule (since last week the school week started on Tuesday)... BM dropping Reag off at school Monday morning and both kids coming home on the bus.

Hopefully all goes smoothly!

They were wiped out near the end of the week. :)


  1. Zach is a dawdler too - I have to make sure I give him an hour in the morning to do all the before school stuff LOL

    Love Love the picture of the 2 big kids sleepin and Lily ready to go!

  2. The picture at the bottom is so cute and funny! I am dragging after the first week of school. It's a big adjustment for us!
