First day of school
Today was a joyous day, it was the first day of school for the girls.
Friday was “meet the teachers” day, so we were able to get a look at the schools and meet the girls’ teachers. This was followed by a run for school supplies.
On Friday night, we went to Mesa’s Second Friday for the “Dog Days of Summer”. The main attraction was the service dog demonstrations demos and all the various dog groups with tables along Main Street. However, we spent most of our time going through the Arizona Museum of Natural History in Mesa.
Saturday featured a trip to Desert Oasis. Most of the junior high schools here have a pool and “stuff”. Desert Oasis is down the street in Chandler and this city operated pool features a nice splash area, a water slide, and a cork-screw water slide. The pool at Lindsey’s school is being rebuilt and will supposedly feature a wave pool for surfing lessons and fun.
Finally, Sunday was exercise “Dad’s Wallet Day” as the girls made withdrawals from the First Bank of Dad for back-to-school clothes.
The girls seem to really like their new schools and are already making friends.
