Can you tell she has puppy treats in her hands? She wanted the boys to be in the picture and that was the only way to get them to sit together.
She has a ton of stuff to carry to school today...her binder, her lunch and a tote bag filled with extra paper and her locker supplies (shelf, magnets, mirror with wipe off memo board). They are supposed to bring two boxes of tissues for their homeroom class but I told her to take those tomorrow.
Paige and our newest neighbor Lauren. Lauren just turned 11 on Monday. It's nice that Paige has such a sweet friend here in our neighborhood. Lauren reminds me a lot of my niece Chelsea she's a very sweet girl.
Megan's big purple printed school bag is mostly empty..it has school forms and checks for her lunch debit card and school fees, a clipboard, and 20 sharpened pencils. The school supply list says they need 4 boxes of 24 pencils...but my gosh if she had that many she would have enough for a new pencil each week of school. I told her if she runs out I will send in more but 20 is plenty to start out with. She also packed her lunch...she was not thrilled about the chicken, green beans, pineapple and milk on the lunch menu for school. She is packing a peanut butter sandwich, grapes, cheese crackers, yogurt smoothie, water and M&M's.
Standing in line for the bus...Hunter, Demera, Peyton, Megan and Ayva. They had a new bus driver this year, Mr. Tom. They were all bummed out because they have assigned seats. The last couple of years with Miss. Debbie they just picked their seats and then told her what seat # they were in and she wrote it down.
