O.k. you can tell I have done first days of school so many times! I have no pictures of that event! The first day went very well, and all the kids survived. I left Max to fend for himself on Thursday morning after we finalized his schedule. I felt so bad! Kali was left to ride the bus and get to Junior high all by herself! Kole and Kaci know the routine at the elementary school, so no worries there. They all made it home. The three younger kids took the bus, Max decided he would try walking. He made it as far as the local grocery store and went in to rest. A girl from school offered him a ride home so he was able to get a ride at least part way home. Kali and Kaci have teased him ever since! Max tried soccer practice and decided he is not cut out to be a soccer player. His muscles are very sore!
Today I took all the kids in to Springfield. Kali needed to stop at the doctor's office for a shot then we went and got Max's things or school. Then off to the mall. Max wanted shoes and a book bag. We ended up at the Finish Line for both. We wandered around the mall a little while too. When we arrive the girls were so glad to see Ally, a girl who babysat them for us one summer. Max was surprised we knew her. Kaci went running up to her and got a hug in and Kole played shy. Kali's arm was sore, so she kind of stood back and watched and talked.
Tonight Max if off with Brady at the football game between the Varsity and the Junior Varsity. I found out that Brady's sister was a friend of Vivian's last year. Must be a good kid.
He chatted with us while he waited for Max to be ready to go.
Tomorrow is Kole's first football game. I will try to get some pictures of him to post on the blog! Should be very cute! If a football game can be termed cute!
