SC Sketch 158 was the first day of first grade for my oldest. And I have to admit, it has totally thrown a loop in my morning routine. But that's ok, we'll get used to it. It was a bit stressful dropping him off though. We drove around...couldn't find a park. We did get there 20 minutes early. Ended up parking as far as you could possibly park from where he lines up, at the top of a parking garage. And of course, couldn't use a stroller, so I walked down four flights of stairs, and across a parking lot then all the way across the school, then back...carrying Eryn in her car seat. And let me tell you...she is heavy now! My arms felt a bit like jello afterwards. Tomorrow, I think we will get the stroller and just walk from our house. It would probably be faster and much more relaxing. Seriously, my morning has just been chaotic.

So's the new sketch for today...

And here is what the fabulous SC girls did with the sketch...


And finally, I know this doesn't give you many days notice, but....
