We've started school around here.
Thought we'd start it with a bang, but it didn't go quite as I planned [does anything, really?]
I began by getting angry at Clover pre-dinner because she crawled up and pulled things off the table.
As we sat down, I tried to give a speech about how blessed their teachers are to have them in their classes this year when I was interrupted over and over until I gave up.
And somehow in all the school supply purchasing, I failed to get Olive some new shoes. Then Pearl was mad because I put pesto on the pasta [she's since forgiven me.]
Everyone got new underwear, socks, and shoes [minus Olive] as polyester uniforms show absolutely no wear--unless you cut them up to make pretty clips ;).
We want to be pristine from the inside out.
And maybe with a little luck, some newly made accessories,
and lots of work,
the school year will go much smoother than our back to school dinner.
