First Day of School. 8/30/2011

First Day of School. 
Turn around you guys!!! 
The bus arrives, right on time

And off they go.....

I have been lucky to be able to be there on the first day of school each year, since Jillian started in kindergarten.  This is a big year because Ethan is now in school - 1st Grade - so he goes every day, for the full day.  Jillian is in the 4th Grade now.  
It seems like not very long ago when Krista pulled into the driveway that July afternoon, and 20 month old Jillian toddled up the driveway and said "Hi Geema!"  That was when Jeff, Krista and Jillian moved up to Lynden, from Tacoma where I could help them with childcare.  A year and a half later Ethan was born, right here in my home.  And after having one or both of them with me for several days a week, now they are off to school.  
What am I going to do........

I don't know what you are going to do - but we could do it together. Ben is in school full time this year too - although the last half of kindergarten last year his school got special funding and all kindergarten classes went to full days,every day. And to think - they never even consulted Grammy. I miss my little shadow.
