So today was the last day of Butterfly’s first 5 years of eternal summer. Mine too I think. Because now, things will follow a very set schedule. And will follow a very set schedule until the boys move out of the house. Looking back at it, I really didn’t know what a good thing I had!
We went and toured her classroom today. We met the music teacher (on the way to the cafeteria) and the gym teacher (on the way to the cafeteria) and the nurse (on the way to the cafeteria) and the librarians…on the way to the cafeteria. Which we never did find. I sure hope they tell her where to go to eat lunch!
Mrs. Madeline is kind. All the other teachers we met said that very word. I’m so glad to hear it. Because Butterfly, for all her boisterous-ness, she is a very gentle soul, sweet, and is easily upset. I was hoping that she would have a teacher that was kind. Butterfly drew a picture for her teacher and wrote on it “I love teacher” and gave it to her today. Mrs. Madeline was thrilled and put it right up next to her desk. The best reaction I could have hoped for.
Even with all this positive school vibes we’re getting here, I’m going to miss our vacation together. Lazy days of staying in our pajamas in the fall and winter, going wherever we want, whenever we want. Taking an hour talking over breakfast because we can. So here’s a picture to remember summer by.
