First Day of School

The kids had a great first day of school! They were ready an hour before we had to go to the bus stop because they were so excited!
I did make a mistake and put the wrong bus on Garrett's bag so he was a little lost after school and did not get off the bus with Robyn. Luckily, the bus I assigned him too had a drop off right down the street and we were reunited without me having a heart attack.
The kids gave me lots of homework and my hand is still sore from filling out all the forms. Is there any particular reason they have you fill out the same information on both sides of an emergency form? That drives me nuts!!

Aw, I am glad they had a great first day!

A co-worker of mine said she uses address labels for that part of the forms!

Phew! I'm glad no one was lost on the bus! They look so excited for school :)

They look so cute and ready for school! Good thing that bus deal worked out and I am gonna use that address label idea that filling out paperwork is so time consuming, my hands were hurting.

Glad the first day is now behind them.

They look so cute.. I'm glad they had a good 1st day of school.. OH MY GOODNESS about the bus I think i would have gone a bit crazy when he didn't get off the bus.
ITA with all that crazy paper work.. goodness, they should just send home a form saying "did anything change from last year? if so what?" LOL..
I spent 2 1/2 hours on Monday filling out form after form after form for Aubrie, Ryan and Aniston, where just the week before I filled out pretty much all the same forms for Aubrie to play school volleyball. Now here is a fun one.. her teachers sent home getting to know your child question and answer sort of stuff which I filled out Monday.. BUT then yesterday he handed me another one from a teacher.. it says In a million words or less, please tell me about your child, feel free to use the back of this paper or add pages if needed" OH goodie more homework for mom LOL, at least it says I know you are busy so take your time with this and return it to me at your convenience.
