first day of school

So today was Dylan's first day of school ever (he is in all day kindergarten) and Shianne's first day of 5th grade. Dylan was super excited and hasn't quite talking about all the things that he got to do. Shianne really enjoyed her day too and really likes her teacher so far. A little after lunch, I got an email from the school nurse about Dylan. They found a tick behind his ear. YUCK. When I went to pick him up and saw it, it was huge. He had to have gotten it at school because you could easily see it from the side or the back so I don't know how he could have had it before and us not see it. When we got home, I tried to get it out, but wasn't having any luck. So we went to see mom at the hospital to get her to help. He was stuck so good and we had to try a bunch of different things. It ended up taking us about 30 minutes to get it out. Dylan was really good about it and didn't make a fuss.
Even with the tick, we got the better end of the deal. Frank took the kids this morning so they didn't ride the bus (which they catch at the high school). The two other kids who ride the bus (one of them is in Dylan's class and was a little scared), got put on the wrong bus by the head of the transportation department and ended up at the wrong elementary school and nobody could figure out where they were for awhile.
