School's in Session

The boys are back at school, but I'm not sure we're quite yet in our groove. I'm pretty sure second grade has taken Sam by surprise. He had his first full day yesterday. I got home from work around 5 and he was falling asleep on the couch by 5:45. I had to get back to work, but found out from Rob later that he'd taken a bath and put himself to bed at 6:30 p.m. As sure as I was that we'd hear him up and about at 3 a.m., he actually stayed in bed until 6 a.m.!

Max seems to be just fine back in full-day preschool. He turns on the water works for Daddy when it's time for Rob to leave, but the teachers all say that he's perfectly fine within a minute.

Our bus schedule has been the newest thing to adjust to. To literally add injury to insult yesterday (the insult being that our bus stop has been moved because of the family who lived where we used to be, pushing our stop back to 8:50 a.m.) I was rushing into work yesterday morning and totally wiped out on my wet shoes when I entered the building.

I feel totally fine when I'm sitting down, but when I try to walk -- something I tend to need to do on a fairly regular basis -- my left knee laughs at me. It doesn't really hurt, but it feels like jell-o. My nurse mother was apparently not mocking me when she told me that she thinks I popped a ligament. Fabulous. I am going to see the doctor this morning in the hopes she has better news.

I really need to post the dreary, rainy back to school photos I took, but my memory cards and card reader are at work for a project I've been working on there. Oops!
