Mimosas and an Empty Beach (a.k.a The First Day of School)

Today was the boys’ first day back to school!  They are pros at this by now and were only a little nervous.  It helped that they have met their teachers and visited their classrooms and already know their friends, of course.

We couldn’t believe it when Fezzy started running around the house wagging his tail when the backpacks came out.  He was so excited to drive the boys to school!  How did he remember?

After the kids were settled it was “Mom Time.”  Usually that means running, but today it meant breakfast and the beach. :)  This was absolutely necessary of course, because a couple of my friends had just sent their last kindergartner off to school.  Mimosas were in order.  A bittersweet moment that requires friends.

The beach was beautiful and there were a ton of dolphins jumping out of the water today.  I almost took this poor seagull home.  This explains why we have so many rescue animals already.

Half days go by so fast!  The boys were all smiles when I picked them and their friends up from school.

This picture is for my girls.  No, I don’t mind if you call me Betty Crocker.  Literally.  😉

But the boys all loved them.

Let’s hope the rest of the year goes as well as today did!
