Everyone got up, ate breakfast and got ready with a minimum of fuss.
Jack was worried the whole time that he was going to be late — we weren’t. (There’s a very narrow window between 7:45 and 7:50 AM that is “acceptable” to Jack to arrive. Really, they don’t need to be there until 8:00, but he likes to be early.)
Owen was pretty blase about the whole thing and Fiona was so excited.
I tried to get them to cooperate for photos, but I wasn’t very successful (either in the quality of the photos, or getting them to pose.) Jack was cold and panicked about getting on the road, Owen was giving me his goofy smile and Fiona was vogue-ing for the camera. (I think her skirt might need to be hemmed, it looks too long for her.)
Once we all finally loaded into the car, Fiona watched a DVD movie and Jack & Owen listened to a new book on tape.
Jack was out of the car and up the stairs before I’d hardly stopped. Owen announced he was nervous, but as he got out of the car, one of his friends immediately started talking to him, so they ran off together into the building.
Fiona said she didn’t want me to walk her to her room. She said she could go by herself like the brothers. She jumped out of the car, put her backpack on (“just one strap on, Mom, because that’s how it looks cool”), opened the door to the building and went straight into her classroom.
A few more photos are here.
