At 6:30 this morning, my alarm went off. I hit snooze and didn't wake again until Trevor came in, enthusiastically asking if it was time to get up (at around 6:55). Within two minutes, he was fully dressed and wearing his backpack. He almost headed in to the bathroom to brush teeth before eating breakfast because he was so excited.
By 7:10, he was perched on the front step waiting for his big brother to join him in waiting for the bus.
I think Bryce was worried I was going to wait at the end of the driveway with them and possible keep snapping photos as Trevor boarded the bus. (Teens grow quite fearful when they know their parent is an avid blogger, hee-hee!)
They both enjoyed their first day immensely. Trevor said he made a new friend named J.J. (I offered up that it was certainly easy to spell). Bryce said his math teacher seems really nice, his Spanish teacher talks really fast, Chemistry is going to be really hard (with a test over all the elements and their symbols in three weeks) and the desks are weird (???). He also noted that in high school, you can chew gum. Cool.
I enjoyed the quiet. When Sean awoke at 8:30, he asked where Trevor was, but didn't seem to be bothered in the slightest. In fact, I think he was somewhat stoked because he could play the Playstation without having to share.
It will be a great relief to settle back into the routine of school.
