Back to School | Mugshot 2013

Racers, start your engines! The 2013 school season is back in session!!

Usually I forget to take photos on the first day; I think we have three or four in the albums but that's basically it. I'm not winning any mother-of-the-year awards, I realize.

But this year I remembered! Here's the mugshot to prove it.



Here's how their respective days shook down:

The Girl...
  • woke up at the cracking...
  • was ready to go more than half an hour early...
  • basically tucked and rolled from the still moving vehicle onto school property, and didn't look back...
  • had a GREAT day.

The Boy...
  • woke up a little late after repeated calls from his sister and parents...
  • forgot to pack half his stuff...
  • decided he didn't really need the other half...
  • turned the wrong way at the street and got lost going to the bus stop...
  • got stung by a bee... twice...
  • was picked up (bunny-hopping on one foot with his shoe off on account of the bee stings, and going the wrong way) by his father, who ice-packed him, suited him up with rain gear and drove him to the actual bus stop...
  • waited for an hour for a bus that never showed up...
  • had to call his mum for a ride...
  • had a GREAT day.

Welcome to grades 5 and 10, kids! Judging by day #1, it's going to be an interesting year.
