Tomorrow is the first day of school for Addison and Samuel. We are in a new place and they are attending new schools. This is the first time they will be in separate schools and the first time they’ve had to ride a bus to and from school. I’m a little nervous for them. Military kids are extra resilient to changes but it’s still hard for them.
This will make the 5th school that Samuel has attended and he’s going into 4th grade. This will only be the 2nd for Addison. Luckily Samuel has made several friends in the neighborhood, however I can’t say the same for Addison. Hopefully she’ll meet some new friends on the bus that live in our neighborhood.
They have requested pancakes and bacon for breakfast tomorrow, I’m sure with a side of chocolate milk, and cheeseburgers and macaroni and cheese for dinner tomorrow night.
All the school supplies are labeled and packed up and backpacks are ready to go. I tried to load money into their lunch accounts but I need to know their student ID numbers to do it. I will call today and try to get those.
Do you have any special rituals for the first day of school?
