They were slow getting up. Maybe it's because they've been staying up 'til 1am all summer.
I had to bring out the big guns: Spongebob, volume up.
We made it out the door by 8am, and to the bus stop, loaded up with backpacks, portfolios, and accessories. Ethan realized he didn't have his Metro Card from school yet, so we took a cab.
Got to school in time for one final photo op.
This is a visual metaphor for their entire personalities, captured in a single photo.
It's bittersweet watching them grow up so fast. I love them, I'm proud of them, and I know they'll be okay.
