This week was the first week of school. Meadow started on Tuesday and Theo started on Thursday. I lucked out that I was working from home on Theo's first day so I could go with him. He had some first day jitters and didn't want to eat his breakfast. We got him to eat while watching cartoons.
Theo's going to be a bit trickier to get ready for school. If something goes wrong, he can kind of go into a tailspin. But he's also had years of practice getting up and taking Meadow to school.
Funny how Meadow just seemed ready for school and Theo seems too small. Like it can't be yet.
Except Meadow was so, so tiny.
I know Theo's going to love learning. He's already such a math wiz. With some help from his kindergarten teacher he's going to do so well.
He was really nervous when he got to school and his teacher was awesome and had him sit down with her to play to get him comfortable.
I guess Kindergarten was okay because he kept his crown on for most of the day. Before going to bed he did say, I don't want to go to school tomorrow because I have to do something I don't know how to do. It turns out the teacher sent them home with a practice sheet so they could learn their student numbers when the get school lunch.
We had a rare weekend at home, which meant the kids could play while the parents caught up on things that got set aside over the summer.
Theo of course started his day with the Mario Odyssey and the Switch.
It seemed like we returned from Labor Day and mother nature decided fall was here. As it had cooled down we could finally turn the oven on to make Big Pancake for breakfast.
At least our new oven doesn't spew heat like the old one.
Meadow helped clean up the living room so I could vacuum.
I was going to be overseeding the lawn with a University of Minnesota Bee Lawn mix. That couldn't be planted until November, so I dethatced the lawn.
I tackled our growing pile of things that needed to be mended that I had put off for months.
It's nice to have space where I can leave out my sewing stuff.
Hey, wasn't this supposed to be our board game table? This is also a good use, I guess.
We have to drag Theo and Meadow upstairs to Funlandia, but once they do they get going.
As you can see our lawn is very spotty. Hopefully my hard work will fix this.
Then for dinner we had fajitas. Not as fun as campervan vacations, but a good start to the new school year.
