This start-of-school felt different than all the others. We learned shortly after moving that we are one of three houses that fall within our neighborhood school boundary. All of the other kids in the ward attend a different elementary school, but they have to be bused there. I LOVE having my kids close enough to be able to walk, and the old original town school seemed charming, so we decided to stick with it. The school was under construction the entire summer, and we weren't able to register until a week before class, and didn't know our class assignments until the night before. The whole process seemed terribly disorganized to me. Not the BEST first impression! At back-to-school night, we waded through a sea of people around a very confusing floor-plan to try to find classrooms and desks and hooks. The school has been under several renovations, each one kind of creating a new piece to create a hodge-podge of hallways and wings that don't make much sense! The kids were pouring over the map the night before to try to make sense of it all.

Mags was pretty bored with the kids gone all day.
It was a joyous homecoming!
