Trey just started 1/2 day Kindergarten, which puts him on the bus at 7:45am, and at school until I pick him up at 11:30am. Trey is nonstop excited about life, so we'll see how well he sits still to learn (he admitted to me today that he got his first "warning" for talking too much. I knew this was coming.) It's actually a bit refreshing to watch his laid-back personality about the whole thing. I struggled as I watched him pack up his backpack by shoving, squishing and bending every supply on it's way in (For real, Trey, the Kleenex box is not going to fit!). Tyler reminded me what a nice change that was from our firstborn boy who has to have everything just-so, or it's the end of the world! Trey has learned something new in school already this week. He announced proudly at supper last night, "You know Mom, in the library you have to put all the books back on the shelf with the skulls facing out." I had to think for a minute and said, "Trey, don't you mean their spines?"
I'm missing these two lately. I'm the mom who wishes summer would never end. Especially a summer that went way too fast with a newborn in the house. And now that school has started, I can't get enough of these two rotten, smiling faces. As the bus pulled away that first morning, Jack pasted his face to the window and waved until the bus cleared the hill and I couldn't see him any more. Trey never looked up once... he was too busy giggling with his new friend next to him in the front seat. Typical.
