The First Day of School

It's hard to believe that yesterday at this time we were still in Wisconsin Dells, riding go karts and having fun and today is suddenly school. Sigh. Anyway, school starts at 9am this year. Since I was off work today, the kids got to sleep in until almost 8. They got up and put on their uniforms. Logan was in khaki shorts that went below his knees and a navy polo. He looked like a mini zookeeper. Kaylin wore her one and only white polo with a navy skirt. They looked so cute in their uniforms. I walked them into school and all the other kids looked so cute in their uniforms. It was interesting to see the girl who is normally dressed in $$$ outfits with matching shoes wearing the same thing as everyone else. I don't really think clothing is an issue yet at Kaylin's primary school, but it certainly will be at middle school next year. My feelings are still pretty mixed about the whole uniform thing, but I will be glad to not EVER have to shop at the mall for school clothes!

The kids were both excited about their first day. Logan had a couple of old friends in his room and Kaylin went from being incredibly disappointed about the teacher she got to being crazy-excited. It turned out that she had the teachers' names wrong and thought she got the "mean" teacher but actually got the nice one! She was yapping loudly as we were walking out of the building and the mom behind us stopped her and asked who the mean teacher was? Kaylin told her and the mom admitted that she'd heard that. It was pretty funny.

I better get some laundry done before we go to my parents' house to celebrate my dad's birthday. Logan is eager to go fishing. Now! Happy birthday, Dad!
