Only 6 days left!

Yes, we are finally gearing up for the big first day of school. Apparently we’re on the late side of this as I know others have been in school for weeks already. I guess we can blame that on Michigan’s tourism industry for getting the law changed so that school can’t start until after Labor Day… Which wouldn’t be so bad if we could actually afford to go anywhere over Labor Day weekend…

Anyway, we’re starting to get a taste of how busy things will get starting next week. Last night was the informal parents meeting for Hannah’s soccer – since she’s playing in the U-5 league, it runs a bit differently than the older groups do. Abby played this a couple of years ago so I was already pretty familiar with how it works, but we did get to pick up Hannah’s uniform and she is so excited to finally have her own instead of only ever watching Abby wearing one.

I also got a glimpse at the schedule and there will only be 2 Saturdays where there’s a conflict between the times that the two girls play. And those are both later in the season, so we’ve got some time for Ron to ask for those days off – phew! Abby will have 2 little girls that she knows on her team, which will be awesome for her. She was a bit disappointed not to get her uniform yesterday, but she’ll probably get it at her first practice next Tuesday.

And Tuesdays shouldn’t be as bad as I was fearing, at least for a while. The girls’ church choir doesn’t start until the 4th (out of 6) week of practice, so having to skip just a few weeks of choir, or leave the last few practices early – shouldn’t be a big deal either way. We’ll just have to decide which.

So tonight is the big Open House at school and both girls get to meet their teachers. Abby was running around this morning more excited than I’ve seen her all summer. We’ve been counting down on our calendar every night all month - only 6 more days to go…

It's so good to see that the same "school should start after Labor Day for tourism" baloney worked on your side of the lake, too...

It's not like people didn't go somewhere over Labor Day when it was the first weekend of the school year..

Thanks for stopping by my Woman to Woman post yesterday. I love having new visitors!

Our kids started school Monday - except for kindergarten, which was yesterday. My grand"baby" started k-garten and was SO excited!

School doesn't start here until after Labor Day too. I'm taking my daughter out tomorrow to finish off her new school clothes.
