But first, San Francisco Giants 1 San Diego Padres 0 - Final!!
Josie asked in the comments about the San Francisco connection to Rice-a-roni. Here it is with thanks to Jerry at I was Asked.
I can't possibly explain the confusion on the buses. Elcie discovered after school that Rochelle is supposed to be on the same bus. Who knew? We'll send her tomorrow and drive Rebecca. Meantime, that bus arrives here at 7:25 and school begins at 7:45. No time for them to eat breakfast at the school so that's one more thing to be fixed. I'll call the District tomorrow and straighten it all out including, I hope, little Rebecca. I was waiting to see what happened with the p.m. bus. Answer - 30 minutes late arriving here. I'd grabbed up Rochelle and Rebecca and was home a good 45 minutes ahead of Elcie.
If the school serves breakfast, they must accommodate all children. That means that somehow my girls get to eat. I hate to sound petty but on our fixed income those 15 meals a week for breakfast (30 for breakfast and lunch) can add up in a hurry. If the bus schedule doesn't allow enough time, they should fix it somehow. Each year a new problem with transportation.
Otherwise they had a good day. Rochelle complained of boredom but the first day is all orientation and speeches. I'd probably be bored as well. She likes classwork but there wasn't any.
Rebecca and Elcie had homework the very first day and so did I. All the forms to complete and sign. At least they're the same as last year.
I think they'll be fine once they become used to the larger campus and the odd rules. Yes, they can have a cell phone as long as it's turned off in class. I'll think about it a little more but I'll probably go ahead; especially if transportation continues to be an issue. There is a cell phone that allows kids to call 3 or 4 programmed numbers and that may be the way to go.
Elcie was asleep by 8:30, the other two just a little after 9:00. Not bad, they were ready with no arguments and very little stalling.
Short post tonight (for me). I'm a little tired too. I'll catch up on some blog reading and call it a night.
Thanks to all of you for the comments and take care.
