photo of the day (back to school daze)
The first day of school has come and gone. Clare made it to school on time and came home with good reports and in good spirits.
Nick was in pretty good spirits for his “not back to school day.” He and I made it through math and science and a trip to the library to choose a book for our English class before I had to go and pick up Clare. She only had a half-day for her first day back.
With the rest of the afternoon ahead of us, we had some lunch and headed over to the lake to take the dogs for a walk and have a swim. I love the lake off season. The ropes are down, the docks are on shore, the crowds (if you can really call them that) are gone. I would venture to say it’s quiet but with 2 kids and 2 dogs there was no chance of that.
To me, it was a perfect end to a great first day of school. I’m still not happy about summer ending but it makes the transition into fall a little easier.
