I did something this past Thursday that I hadn’t done since this happened: I drove carpool down to Abigail’s school on a regular school day.
We were in a different car than back in April (btw, I’m loving the new van but I don’t recommend breaking your sternum to get yourself one!!); I had a new carpooler with me (another little first grade girl from a neighborhood almost next to ours whom we are delighted to have at Covenant this year); and we got to the school without incident, for which we are most thankful.
It’s been a busy week what with getting used to rising early again, enjoying back to school activities, and attending teacher meetings, and in the midst of it all, I have managed to catch quite a nasty chest cough which I cannot seem to shake. Abigail also had an inauspicious and early end to her first week of school when she got sick in the car on the way home Thursday afternoon, but she has recovered nicely from her short-lived tummy bug. Due to her illness, we all had an unexpected day of rest (sort of) yesterday, so that was a blessing.
I’ll try to post more on each of the children’s return to their respective classes, along with some pictures, hopefully in the next few days.
