The alarm went off at 6am…just like yesterday.
I looked out the window and was greeted by a dense fog…just like yesterday.
I waited until 6:10 to see if the school would call about a delay and when it didn’t, I woke the girls up…just like yesterday.
I braided Olivia’s hair (into a heart, of course), took her downstairs to clean her glasses and hand her off to Tom for breakfast…just like yesterday.
Then we went outside to take pictures…just like yesterday. In fact, the girls even wore the same outfits as yesterday because the minute after the call came in yesterday about school being closed, Tom sent them both upstairs to change out of their ‘first day of school’ clothes and into jammies.
Sadly (for the girls) the difference between yesterday and today is that there was no call about a delay or a cancellation. The bus arrived (though a little late) and off they went to school.
Here’s to the REAL first day of school.
And a pic of their shoes just because.
