Mine started Tuesday. Only because, after 14 years of doing this, I missed registration. Monday was a very long day.

Oh no, sorry you missed registration! It was bound to happen at some point, though, I suppose. I know my mom forgot with my siblings and me before, too. What grade(s) is/are yours in?

 Yikes. I'm always afraid I'll miss it, too, for some unexpected thing and then face a nightmare of a first day for mine, too. They're in 7th and 8th this year and so far, so good. How about yours?

good morningWow, that makes me glad for the K-12 my two attend. They're 12 and 13 now. Are the carpool lanes at your kids' schools crazy, or do they move along pretty well?

I only have one I have to pick up and yes, the lines are really bad. Other two are bus riders.

 I woke up to carpet layers in my sun porch this morning... at 7:14 am!!! I knew they were coming early, but not THAT early!

Other then that, my day is going pretty good. =)

Oh, well, that's not too bad if you only have to struggle with one. I know the one here is pretty rough these days. They changed their bus policy so that kids have exactly 10min to get out to the buses and loaded up. If they're not on the bus at that time, the bus leaves without them and their parents have to come pick them up. The result was about 12 kids were left on the curb and now their parents - like me - have decided to skip the bus and just take them to and from school each day instead. Now the carpool lane is a nightmare and the buses are nearly empty when they leave in the afternoons.
