Today was the first day of school for us. The kids were excited yet nervous, like usual. Things were organized and ready to go, like usual. I waved to the kids as the bus pulled away, like usual.
School day mornings are such a family affair in our house. We have the routine down. I wake the kids, make sure they get dressed, help them comb their hair. Chris gets them breakfast and makes the beds. He feeds the cat, I pack lunches. We have a few good laughs. We both wave as the bus pulls away. Then off to work we go.
But today was nothing like usual. It was like usual 2.0 … somewhat familiar yet quite different. Things got done. The girls looked cute. Lunches were packed. We facetimed a super-tired Chris (that 3 hour time difference is killer), so we all got to chat. We all felt it, though. It was different. And, of course, usual 2.0 doesn’t include a Susan job feature. We have to wait for the release of usual 2.5 for that.
A few photos from today and from school days of yesteryear, just for fun. 🙂
Usual 1.0 was a great version. I really liked it and it worked quite well. I miss it. But one can’t live in the past. It is what it is. Usual 2.0 has its benefits. We’re doing everything we can to bridge the distance. And heck … who knows what improvements usual.2.5 and 3.0 might bring?
Did you have a first day of school today? How was it? Usual or not-so-usual? I’d love to hear from you!
