First Bus Ride of the School Year
I am always late to everything, so for the first day of school, I was late. I was running around trying to get three kids dressed and ready to go, all before 7:30 am. School starts at 7:45 and I really needed them all in the car and buckled by 7:25 if I were going to be there on time. It was just not happening. I did manage to get one picture of Little Cowpoke on the first day of school. But I just waited until the first day the kids rode the bus to take pictures. I know, this picture is all out of focus, but it was cute anyway. I was having camera issues that morning. It was really humid outside and my camera kept fogging up. I even had set it outside 25 minutes before I wanted to take pictures and it still was fogging up. Little Cowpoke was pretty excited for school. He was all about going once a day or so, but he goes to Pre-K five days a week from 7 am until 3:30 pm. Little Cowpoke thinks it is a bit much. I was so excited for him to wear his uniform. I love his tiny tennis shoes!! They are so cute. I was all excited about those because all my kids wear are cowboy boots, muddy boots, or flip flops. And if anyone can tell me what I can do about the washed out sky in all my pictures, I would love to know, it's driving me nuts! Now, one may ask where Big Cowpoke is? Well, Big Cowpoke did not want his picture taken. He was being an old stick in the mud. See that happy face? And see the fog on my camera lens? I swear, the south is like living in a tropical rain forest! It's so humid. But the bus was coming and the kids were excited about getting on the bus. I love how big Little Cowpoke's book bag is! It's the same book bag that Big Cowpoke used in Pre-K and Kindergarten. I am a cheap mom and refuse to buy new book bags every year. If the bag doesn't have a hole or a broken zipper, they have to use it! And now that they are both gone from 7 am to 3:30pm it is quite and I still don't get anything done.
