Today was the first day of school.
It was exhausting, and everything was very new.  
So many new faces, new teachers, 
and new rules that the kids felt overwhelmed when
 I picked them up.  So did I because:
I got lost finding Ollie's school and was about 45 minutes late picking him up.
I went in the wrong way to Nicholas's pickup line and had to wait
 in the back of the line, which made me late picking up Ollie, whose
school is 30 minutes away from Nicholas's school.
(It makes me tired just typing it out).
 I made Claire and Jane meet me in another parking lot far 
away from their school, so I didn't have to wait in the pickup line because
I needed to figure out how to get in.
I have to admit, I was a little bit grouchy- not how 
I wanted to be when I greeted them on the first day. 
I went to bed way late the night before and was paying for it around 3:00 pm.
Also, Mr. Nielson really hurt his back today and has been in lots of pain:
Is it bad to say that I am already excited for the weekend?

The sweet Bishop of our church congregation and his family
(who live miles away from the ranch), invited us over for dinner
 which was so very nice of them.
 I am thankful that we have met some very wonderful people here
who love and support our family.
Despite it being a little bumpy day, isn't the sky amazing?!

Also: tomorrow is a very special day for our family!!!
NINE years!
