School is Cool

September again!  The kids were excited to see their friends again - bouncing around in the back seat of the car for the entire trip.  Check out the necklaces in the photo below.  The kids made them at the breakfast table as a special 1st day of school treat.  They say "school is cool" on the apple, which I didn't think much about when I bought the kits on the discount rack months ago.  Well, the kids thought that the phrase was hilarious, and the two of them chanted "school is cool ... school is cool" over and over (and over and over . . .) on the drive there until I finally turned on the story of Robin Hood and distracted them. 
My little guy just could not contain himself - this photo is funny, but you should see the other 8.  He is hanging out of the frame on most of them.

The kids both said that their favorite part of the day was show-and-tell (one of the greatest elementary school inventions) where my daughter showed off a Pocahontas doll that she purchased all by herself with her chore money, and my son shared the snake skin that he found last weekend.  

By the end of the day I was pooped; juggling a squirmy 4 month old while trying to teach the scientific method to 6 year olds isn't the easiest of tasks.   The kids on the other hand, they weren't tired at all.  They came home and continued to bounce around the house and yard as happy as larks chanting:
School is cool . . . School is cool . . . School is cool!

You have a lot to jugle but you do a great job at it. Enjoy the year!
