Last year, on September 4th, I was, officially, the mama of a 6th grader, a 5th grader, and a 2nd grader.

We didn’t really buy school supplies.

We didn’t buy new school clothes, since our semi-annual shopping trip to Buffalo ended early and in tears (mine).

We didn’t buy new shoes.

We didn’t know any of the other kids or parents.

We didn’t know any of the teachers.

We didn’t know where to go.

We didn’t take the right pictures due to the rainstorm—there are no backpacks, and I didn’t use the awesome frame I bought *just* for the photos. Two porch shots, for the win.

But there’s one thing I knew for damn sure—I am the mama of three awesome kids who were going to have the greatest 6th, 5th, and 2nd grade years.

I just knew it.

So very right. What an amazing year we had.

  1. So happy for your happy ending. Nothing fills a mama’s heart like knowing she’s sending her kids to a place that helps them grow. xo

    This year was so hard and scary, since we moved to a completely new school. I’m so glad we did…it was an amazing year for all three kids.

    My heart is overflowing with joy.

    I asked them if they would, because I’m a crazy person. She was the only one who really wanted to cooperate. :)
