They are getting so big!
Today was the first day of school for 3/5 of the Jensen family. Parker really thinks that 3rd grade will be fantastic, and all of Matthew's nervousness about 1st grade disappeared, even though he has no one from his Kindy class with him this year. As for Mom, well - it would have gone better had the air conditioning been up to snuff... today reached about 113* and there was virtually no air at school. My class room thermometer read 87 and I was the coolest room on my wing!
But this year, other than the heat, I am getting a reprieve... Rather than have to deal with Middle Schoolers who drive me to want to drink heavily, I will be teaching 4th, 5th and 6th grade LRC. This equates to a chance to actually TEACH, and that will be a very nice change!!!
These are some pictures from today - as I passed several busstops on my way to school and noticed tons of Moms and Dads with cameras of all makes and models, I am glad to know I am not the only goober who insists on taking photos of my kids on that first day of school!
