This has been a busy week for us! It started with Labor day weekend and we decided to have a small gathering of a few neighbors. We missed having big neighborhood parties this summer so it was amazing to hear all the laughter in our back yard again before fall. These are all families who have been in our quarantine bubble this summer.
Tuesday we went to see the new classroom and meet Annabelle's team. Everyone was so kind and excited for school to start. We saw her new desk and dropped off her supplies.
Thursday was her first day of 3rd grade. It's been 181 days since she was in school! She was so excited at drop off that I couldn't get her out of her car seat. When she's over excited the tone in her arms is so high I can barely straighten them out. She had a fantastic first 2 days and can't wait to go back Monday. It is a short day but I set up things for the afternoon to keep her busy at home. Overall a very successful week back! Hopefully all the precautions they are taking will keep our kids safe <3
