I was at Mom's when the school year officially began on August 28. The schedules for the kids line up pretty well. They all have on-campus classes on Monday and Wednesday. Monkey also is on campus on Fridays.
The schedules are such that they all leave together at 8:20 and get picked up at 4:45. It's a long day, an early start to the day, and Monkey and Buster especially have lots of time in between classes. (Buster has only one class from 2-3:15.)
I begged for pictures of the day, and they delivered.
I also begged them to not have Buds take the group selfie, but we did this get this artistic masterpiece:
Monkey and I were cracking up at the direct correlation between her mood that morning and this picture:
With all the time he had, Buster got several great ones.
The kids explored and found lots of different spots for work and waiting.
Buds picked them up at the end of the long day, and overall it was a good start for everyone.
I was sorry I wasn't there, but so grateful for the care and support they all give each other.
