First Day of Fifth and First Grades

As one friend put it, today was the real Mother's Day: the first day of school! After a summer that was definitely the quickest yet, the kids were back to the salt mines. Fortunately, they were both chipper about it, despite the early wake-up call.

Laura, on the other hand, was much less enthused when I went in to get her up for the drive. Upon seeing me, she held up her hand and said, "Go away! I'm staying here." Not surprisingly, this was my view a few hours later:
As the first day is always a noon dismissal, we all regrouped for a now-traditional lunch at Twisted Taco, and promptly threw our kids in jail. Let the school year begin!
