I would like to say that we were cool, calm and collected, ready to start the school year with a bang. We were pretty far from it though. We had just arrived home from our vacation to Idaho that morning at around 2:00. Chad had to jump right back into work that morning as well. Luckily, we had live-in back up! Aunt Saundra (who had picked us up at the airport that morning) jumped right in to help out. She helped mad the crew while I helped Aimee get ready, who I had let sleep as long as I thought I could get away with. Knowing that this would be the case before we left for our trip, we had packed all of her school supplies and tried to have what we could ready. It was a crazy morning.
When 4:00 rolled around and the bus came around the corner that day, and almost every other school day until the weather turned cold, we were all there waiting for our Aimee to tell us how great 1st grade was.
