First Day of School

 Elena and Isabel were very excited for school.
 They had to show off their backpacks.

  And can you believe it?  I was up and ready and the kids were on time.
Despite the happy faces here, both Elena and Isabel returned home distraught. Weeping and wailing and saying how much they hated school.   For Elena it boiled down to the fact that she didn't get to wait with her friend after school, and I think Isabel was just overtired.  Today went better.
 Ana, unfortunately, had her alarm set for the PM and not AM and so missed her first day of seminary and was a bit late to school. She was happy when she got home though.  Today was a bummer for her however.  She was supposed to get her braces off, but they changed their minds and she's keeping them for another 3 months.  So sad.

As for me, I am LOVING  the kids being back in school.  It's so quiet and restful.  Sebastian has been at friends' houses playing both days though.  Anyway, I love it.
