Have to run. The pool bar opens in a few minutes.
Rough job, but someone has to do it.

I was a bit confused when we got to the school, this was our first "first day of school" at this school so were unfamiliar to the processes they do. All the parents and kids were milling about the school yard (it's at the rear of the school). I took the girls around front to take Amelia to the before-school program, but it was closed, so we went back to the yard and found the program director amoungst the mob. She told us all is good, they line all the kids up by class. I left Amelia with her friends and took Audrey up to the kindergarden gate andshe went in to lin up with her fellow JK class. We lucked out big time, the early childhhood educator who is assigned to assit Audrey's teacher knew Audrey, and looked after her in the infant room at the daycare she went to, so knows her habits and tendancies, so this is good, for all parties involved. Left her there since we couldn't wait with her, and checked on Amelia, chatting with the before/afterschool director, and she then hooked up with her friends, and I guided them to their class line. The principal then pulled out some bagpipes (!) and started playing marching around to the front of the school, with the lines of classes following behind. So they wrre piped into the school. Really neat way to start school, I continue to be amazed with this principal. Good timing too, halfway home, the heavens opened up, drenching me.


All I could think on the way home: "Well, they're the school's problem now!"

Audrey only had a half day as they stagger the Kindergarden class, so I've got her here now. Tomorrow is back to full days again.

The only things I can find about HS refurbs or closures is shrunk the kids going down for a brief period in October and Nothing about Movie ride. Now in November I believe the 8th, they will close at 4PM for a Private Event!

Following any of Barry's advice can be harmful to your health and should never be attempted unless under trained supervision.

Sorry, my lawyer makes me say that.

We dropped ours off at school. DW and I were a bit emotional, but not as much as when we did our oldest 2 years ago. On the walk back to the car, she commented that in 5 years when the baby goes off to Kindergarten, we'll probably just wish him luck and have his brother take him.

Been about 5 years for me... But I remember it like it were yesterday.

Little Miss (Mr.) Independant. Very moving experience... I followed the bus to school everyday for the first week, to make sure they made it safely to the school yard.

Congrats on having a big kid now...
