5 Things Friday {8.18.17}

num5

Well school started this week. Reality smacked us right in the face. Hard. But we took like the champs we are and rolled with the punch. Or smack. Whatever. So in the grand tradition of the first week of school being a total cluster, I jammed packed as much crap into the first 3 days as possible. Clearly I’m insane. 

1. So last Saturday was Tyler’s first scrimmage of the season. It was at 12:30 in the afternoon on a day with a heat index of 105. Talk about poor planning. We about died and the players were sick with the heat. It was miserable. Tyler is #53 again this year. That’s him on the left kneeling down in the first picture. He started at nose guard on defense and right tackle on offense. If you look closely at the third picture, that big dude who looks like a tank? That’s the guy Tyler was blocking on offense and trying to get past on defense. It was a long day for Tyler. Ha! The last picture is a group of the players recovering in the hot tub at one of their houses. He has such good friends at the school, and best of all, I like all their moms. Ha!

2. Maia got her braces and extender put on this week. Not the best timing with school starting and her being the new girl. But this was the only time we could get it done and since it’s an almost 3 hour long appointment it needed to be done before school started. She did great but it’s been a rough week. She’s having trouble eating and talking and yeah….rough week. I keep telling her it will all be worth it….in 3 years.

3. Shortly after having her braces put on we had to go to her open house. Poor girl was trying to introduce herself to her new teachers and she could barely talk. But all of her teachers are awesome and helpful and she got some great classes. I left the little kids down in the elementary school with a friend and came back to find they had made friends with the new bearded dragon who lives in the art room. His name is Pete. I love it!

4. We took a few hours on Wednesday to hang at the pool for our last hoorah! They had friends there and we spent hours swimming and laughing and relaxing. It was a great end to our summer vacation.

5. And then reality smacked us upside the head the next morning at 5:30 when the alarm clocks started going off. The kids almost look awake in the pictures, don’t they? Ha! The best part of our charter school? Uniforms. No fighting over what they were going to wear. None. They were all dressed, fed, and in the car ready to leave at 6:15. Success! Everyone had a great day, even Maia who was so nervous about middle school.
