Julia thought the sign was dorky and kept looking next door to make sure our cute middle school boy neighbors didn't see her posing in front of the house holding a retarded sign. Did you know it's SO NOT COOL to hold up a sign your dad decorated with little hearts and doodles? Go figure!
We had difficulties deciding what to wear for the first day of school. It was going to be hot but we also wanted to don our new threads. Man, Buckethead must of tried on 100 outfits before we decided on what he would wear to drop the kids off. I mean, he has to look good for those PTA moms who wiggle and giggle in his presence. Never met the PTA?? THAT'S an entirely different blog. Some of those Women are NUTS.
Both kids had a wonderful day. They loved their teachers and had so much fun reuniting with old friends and making new ones. My prayer this year for them is that they continue to grow in their faith, that friends will be of plenty, tears will be few, laughs will be continuous and that they will always remember they have a family who loves them.
P.S. See those ever-green plants in the picture? They're dead. Dead as a door nail-Dead. I spray painted them green because I'm too cheap to buy new ones. You're welcome for that "white trash tip of the day".
