Today starts week 3 of school and Andrew and Libby run out to the bus stop every morning like they've gone there their entire lives. There was a couple of days of transition for the two of them and Andrew is struggling a bit with who to sit with on the bus but they have settled right in. And Libby has a former classmate from her former school in her class. The boy who used to be her "boyfriend" from kindergarten through 2nd grade! So, she is just thrilled that he's there and he is a huge comfort to her - it's a nice bit of home for her, in a way.
My poor Em. She's definitely doing better but there are still some nights where she cries and Sunday nights seem to be the absolute worst. She is so relaxed at home over the weekend and drops her guard and the reality hits her again on Sunday nights - that she must put on a brave smile and go back to school. It is better, though. It really is. She has lots of stories to tell me in the afternoons and laughs at things she and people have talked about and has even found a new friend in one or two of the classes. And today will be huge for her because they will no longer have assigned seating in the lunch room and she can eat with our neighbors and her new-found best friends. Having that break in the middle of the day where she can relax with them will really help.
And, a layout! I am so looking forward to getting back into a routine and having some time to myself to relax and scrapbook and quilt.
As always, all supplies are from DesignerDigitals. :)
Full supply list can be found in my gallery. This one came together very quickly and I'm so glad I took a photo of the bus! I enlarged it, cropped it, and reduced the opacity to 10%.
I just may take some time to do another page today. :)
