It's that time again...

... time to fill out classroom forms, deposit lunch money into accounts, label backpacks, search for sold out school supplies and lace up new tennis shoes.  Yes, it is back to school time!  Next Monday is the big day and this is prep week - parent orientations and open house and last minute shopping time.
Avery and Austin are going to be Kindergarteners at Brenham Elementary School.  We are excited and nervous at the same time.  It is going to be a big change from St. Paul's but we know they will breeze through the change much smoother than mommy will.  We were super excited to find out that Ms. Deramus will be their teacher.  Get this, she has a blog that keeps parents up to date with class activities!  Love that.  Biggest challenge this year will be getting to school by 8am.  We've had a few practice runs this week and well, there is still room for improvement.
Caleb is going to be an Ocean Treasue (Pre-K) at St. Pauls.  He has Ms. Winkelmann for a teacher, the same teacher as A&A, so we are excited about what the year has in store for him.  We hope she is ready because Caleb is with his two best buds Jase and Ethan.  They can be a hand full!  Fortunately he doesn't have to be to school until 8:30 am so he and I will have a little one-on-one time to prepare for the day after we stress about getting A&A to school on time.
We are trying to get into a night time routine this week.  Dinner, showers, book time and bed.  It's still a work in progress, but hopefully something we will be ready for next week.  Ready or not, school time here we come.
