It's amazing how fast your day/luck can change!
This morning, the kids were ready to go to school a bit early, so DD colored in her weather report. This week, each morning, she is responsible for presenting the dailiy weather to the class.
So we go off to the bus stop which is kitty corner across the street. It is significantly cooler today (high expected to be 74, compared to yesterday's 90+) and DD decided that she wanted a jacket. So I jogged back home, rushed to get her jacket and then to the first aid box for some bandaids. She had complained about her scraped kneed (from yesterday's gymn class). Then I rushed back out to the bus stop.
I calmly walked back in the door and set about putting the first aid box away...only to discover my DD's weather report lying next to the first aid kit. Seriously..inches away! If only I had looked and seen! So, in a mad rush, I woke up DS, hustled him into clothes, potty, he got some cereal in a gallon sized ziplock while I emailed the teacher. And we were off...
Lickity split, we were behind a bus...and yes, it WAS my kids' bus! But our school parking lot is on a lower level. So DS and I ran as fast as he could run up the hill to get to the buses! Once up there, we spied 2 of the neighborhood girls that wait at our bus stop. But no McK*...she was one of the first off the bus! We signed ourselves into the school, got our visitor's sticker...walked down the halls to her class room. We did get to see C* and walk with him (and his class)to his classroom. Peeked inside. Then 2 more classrooms away, we spied M* in the hallway. I'm not sure if someone said that I was coming. And of course, she didn't say a thing. (Unlike her big brother who was very verbal in his surprise to see us at school!) We peeked into her classroom and waved good by to C* as we passed by his classroom on our way out of the school.
Then we traveled south on Baldwin Road back home. Which is actually the way most people go to work b/c it takes you to the highway. So, it was slow go...and I was eager to make it to the gas station b/c my husband had forgotten to fill up the tank last night. Haha...
Okay, some finally, we get the the gas station, and I accidentally hit "debit" instead of "credit." So that took a bit of time.
Finally, we got back home...an hour after we left (b/c yes, we got McDonald's hashbrowns as a breakfast treat.) Whew...what a day we've had already. It's like treading water some days. (Mck's teacher did respond saying that McK had left the entire folder and was upset about it.)
But all's well that ends well! M*'s report is right on. Cloudy in the morning with a small chance of rain. We only have 3 more days of reporting before we are done!! It would have been so much eaiser, if there wasn't any clip art to color. Then we could have stamped some decorations with solid stamps!
