We are into the 3rd day of school and all is well in the Sab household.  I am so happy!  I was so worried about my kids starting a new school, making new friends, and trying to find their way around a brand new building.  We were at our other schools for so long that we knew the layout like the back of our hands.  But, I have to say, both of them have done wonderful!  I am so proud of them both!

I dropped Reid off on the first day of 9th grade and he had NO idea where he was going and didn't even have a schedule.  He missed Freshman orientation and had to go to the make-up orientation the Friday before school started.  So, when I dropped him off that morning I was praying he would get all the classes that he wanted.  I just knew when I picked him up that afternoon that he was going to be devastated because he likes to be organized, likes to know what he's doing and where he's going.  But, no!  He got in the car and said he had a great day.  The people were nice, the school was good but big, BUT he wasn't too happy about one of his elective classes.  He wanted Art 1 because he heard it was easy.  Well, so did all the other Freshman, so it was full.  He said, "Mom!  Do you know what they put me in??  Small Animal Management...what in the world is that?  I don't really like small animals."  hahahaha!  SO, guess who has an appointment to go visit the counselor.   

Yep, mama!

Macy got in car and declared her new school, "AWESOME!"  I think I was more worried about Reid than her because she is my little social butterfly.  She loves everyone she meets and makes friends fast.  She knew only one little girl in her grade and thankfully they got in the same class.  That made the first day SO much easier.  There were no tears, thank goodness! (only by me when I babies are growing up)  She said her friend introduced her to a lot of girls!  She was so happy about that.  She said one little girl lives in our apartment complex and she was going to come by later.  Sure enough about 5:30 we hear a little knock.  There was a sweet little girl wanting to talk to Macy.  They went outside and I could hear lots of giggling!  That makes a mama happy.  Now, she wants to ride the bus.

Um, not ready for that yet.

As for me, I am trying to get used to the quiet.  I have heard them running around here all summer and now as much as I love the quiet I miss them terribly!  But, there's a lot to do around here and I'm busy until it's time to get in the car line (which can be a post all in itself....uggg....the car line!). 

Gotta go...gotta do some laundry..... I mean, it just doesn't wash itself, ya know!

Happy a happy, happy Wednesday, y'all!

Well...except for managing those small animals. What in the world?!?!

Glad they like their classes, teachers, new space and are making new friends--I know that eases your mind and warms your heart.
