September came a whole lot quicker than I expected, but today was the 1st day of school for the girls. Leena headed out (with all of us following) early this morning to catch her bus. The bus stop was crowded and there were a few new faces, too. Leena and her neighborhood friends are the oldest at the stop, even though she is only in 3rd grade. It felt strange to see Yasmeen stay behind after the bus came. We headed home for ANOTHER HOUR before it was time for Yasmeen to go catch her bus. She watched TV, played with Adam and made sure she was ready for the big day. When we drove out to the bus stop (1 street over and NOT at the end of our block), there were tons of kids waiting and before I could snap more than one picture, she was off too. Adam was just happy to be walking around and not bound to a stroller. Looks like we are back in the grind again. Lucky for us, we ended our summer vacation on a high note, finally having our first monthly mommy/daughter date days, getting out to the pool one last time, going into NYC for a WNBA basketball game and a walk around Times Square, as well as finishing up a puzzle geocache we'd been working on for the past several weeks. Here's to a great school year ahead!!!
