Today was the first day of summer school for two out of the three kids. Lauren got picked up by the bus (10 minutes late – typical first-day issues) and I took Avery shortly after. They are both going to the same school now (the middle school) and there is a ton of construction going on around it, trying to make it more accessible for the new elementary school. So that makes drop-offs and pick-ups extra annoying.
I picked Avery up at noon, which was a bit of a hassle because she wasn’t quite where they said she would be, but in the end, all was fine. Lauren was a half-hour late today (she was supposed to get home at 2:30) and showed up with THE PRINCIPAL because there was a bussing mix-up! Freaked me out a little to see a guy just show up at my door with my kid, but he was super nice and promised the issue would be fixed for tomorrow. Whew! What a day!
(I caught Avery trying to pick her mosquito bite scab and this was the resulting photo, with her “lazy peace sign”). I didn’t have time to get another one, so slightly blurry photo it is!
