west virginia moments

after two weeks off from school, i was scared/nervous about yesterday

the first day back to school/life after holidays is never easy

we prepared the best we could

we took down the tree, put away all the ornaments and christmas decorations, cleaned, did laundry, grocery shopped, Lily went to sleep early, the coffee maker was filled with coffee and ready to go in the morning, Lily’s school lunch was half ready…

and although Lily cried sunday night about not wanting to go back to school (i wanted to cry too), i couldn’t have asked for a better morning/day yesterday

i woke up at my regular time (5:30), got the coffee going, finished getting her lunch ready, woke her up and ready to go without any grumpiness, caught the most amazing sunrise on the way to school…

it was a great first day back to life/reality

how was your first day back?

hope it was a great one too
