Well, Birdie turned a corner Monday. Between not having to take a general math assessment and getting invited to go with a friend’s family to the football rally tonight she was more than happy.
Here we all are on the way to Lydia’s bus stop, which is at the neighbor’s. Eden, Christopher and I were already outside documenting her first day, when Lydia came rushing out panicked that we were late. Christopher shouted something annoying, then Lydia told him to shut up, which provoked him to shout even louder to me that Lydia had told him to shut up and then I shouted at him to shut up and get in the picture.
It’s been a long week. Lydia started a new school too – sixth grade. It hasn’t been easy being the new kid and being her mom hasn’t been a cake walk either. I haven’t blogged, because it takes time getting up early, packing lunches, waiting for buses, driving Kindergartners to school, neducating homeschoolers, praying on the hour for lonely girls, rejecting plans to beat up would be mean girls and such.
