First Day of School

I goofed. This month I got so busy posting about Laurel’s expressiveness, posting photos on Facebook, posting about the Dead Sea Scrolls, and posting about the apple orchard trip that somehow I skipped blogging about our first day of school!

So without further delay, here are my lovely students at the park on the first day of school.

in Pre-K!

After lots of late-night re-organizing efforts by yours truly, our classroom is no longer unpresentable. Tah-dah!

We — and by that I mean my husband — shortened the school table and purchased new chairs for all three of us. I could not be happier sitting in any other chair. Yes indeed, I am sitting in a child-sized chair. But it is from Pottery Barn, and it fits me better than our dining room chairs, thank-you-very-much. I also booted two little desks out of the room entirely, which frees up a lot of space and makes the entire room more pleasant to occupy.

On the first day, I gave the girls some lovely new picture books by Tasha Tudor, new Ticonderoga pencils, and little round boxes of M&Ms — because doesn’t everyone deserve chocolate on a regular basis?

Oh yeah, I also gave them some of those silicone shape bracelets that are all the rage right now.

You know, because they already had 473 of them…
