We were out of town for the first few days of school so today was Isaac's first day. The morning didn't go quite as I had envisioned.
We rolled into town last night from vacation and hardly had a stitch of food to pack a lunch. I got up at 5:10am so that I could go to the grocery store for some bread before Travis left for work. That mission was successful but I made a serious mistake when I decided to lay down for just a few minutes before waking Isaac up.
A few minutes turned into almost two hours! I must have turned my digital alarm clock off and my 6:15am alarm clock, named Charlie, decided to sleep until 7:23am this morning. The bus comes at 7:25am...we did not make it.
Plan B...take Isaac to school myself. We quickly made the lunch, dressed the boy, ate the breakfast, brushed the teeth, combed the hair, loaded into the car, and took off for school on a rainy day. We got to the school a couple minutes early so we sat in the car to wait. That's when Charlie pointed out my next big blunder by immediately climbing up to the front of the van. He didn't need any assistance getting out of his car seat because I hadn't buckled him in at all.
When we got inside the principle took us down to Isaac's classroom and...surprise!! His teacher Mrs. Long is sick today. Mrs. West is subbing in for her. She made less than a big deal and wasn't too helpful. I think she was nervous herself. I sure hope the rest of this day runs a little more smoothly for this excited Kindergarten boy.
