I have commented before that our first days after long breaks have an uncanny way of going very smoothly and yesterday was no exception. Is that strange to anyone else? It is to me. Don’t worry though; the bomb will probably drop today.
I just wanted to post a couple of fun highlights from our day. First, the kids didn’t even fuss about dictation yesterday, thanks to these gianormous pencils, a Christmas gift from my dad and step-mom:
Second, I got very excited when the UPS man pulled up around lunch time. I thought it was going to be some books I was expecting, but no; it was this:
…a box containing 728 — yes, you read that right, seven-hundred twenty-eight — pictures that I ordered last week from my online photo account. No, I’m not an avid photographer, just a procrastinator. Some of these pictures were from 2006!
Last week, I finally decided that I would just bite the financial bullet and order all the pictures I had stored on my online account. It is my plan to now keep up-to-date with ordering my digital prints shortly after they are made. We’ll see how that plays out. Now, I just need to go buy some photo albums.
What about you? If you started back to school yesterday, did things go as planned?
