First Day of school

Yesterday was the first day of classes for the kids. This was a much anticipated day; ready for new friends, new lifestyle, new classes.... Here's how the day panned out:
6:45 Madison & I fight for the bathroom
7:15 Dillon eats breakfast
7:36 Dillon, Madison & Shelly leave for Madison's school (school starts @ 8:20)
8:00 We're stuck in traffic
8:20 We're stuck in traffic
8:21 Called Jared to tell him to leave NOW! Traffic is BAD! (his school starts @ 9:05)
8:23 Madison decides to walk the remaining 6 blocks because we're stuck in traffic (she made it to school with MANY other late students--not a good start-- I feel terrible for her!)
8:40 Dropped Dillon off... Didn't see Jared amongst traffic, he must've beat the traffic!

2:45 I left to get Madison (school dismisses at 3:30-but I don't want to get stuck in traffic again)
3:10 Parked at Madison's school
3:40 Madison finally emerges... she talks the entire way home... not such a bad day afterall!
4:20 Jared calls from school- he wants to stay after to enroll in Debate Club.
4:45 Jared calls from the car- he's going to McDonald's on his way home from school (oh the joy of cruising in mom's car...)
5:30 Scott picks up Dillon from football

The funny thing about our day is that it only takes 10 minutes to get to the kids' schools! This of course, is during low-traffic times of the day. Oh my. Today Madison left the house at 7:30 and they took a different path... much better. Scott dropped her off at 7:55. Yay!
