And here we go again!!

Well, now I know what it feels like to have a piece of me leave! I had to let my baby boy head off to kindergarten. Yesterday was the first day of school for us, and we were all actually excited, AND we all did really well! Day 2 not so good. Jason woke up and was bummed that he had to go back to school, he thought he was done. He went to kindergarten yesterday! Why did he have to go today! And yes there were tears, from both of us, and yes, I was ready to pick him up and just bring him home and hold him all day ( like that would happen) but the teacher rightfully pushed me out the door, telling me he would be fine, ( yes, I became one of those moms) and my heart is just a little broke today :( those darn crocodile tears get me every single time! But on the other hand miss Abby did good, yesterday was wonderful, thismorning was a little rough, she didn't sleep last night, I think instead of being nervous for school, she is excited. so she woke up a little sleep, we will see how she did today! but she loves her class, and her teacher!
Alli, Is so happy to go to school! She had her outfit picked out like 3 weeks ago! she woke up so happy, and got ready, wanted her hair done just right, my little princess is growing up way too fast! And she had a great first day, no drama there! but I am sure it will come.

Joey believe it or not was ready to head out! He got his own alarm clock this year ( saves me from going in his room 10 times each morning to try and wake him up) and it worked!!! He got himself up, ready and was almost excited to go! I think the biggest problem this year with joey is going to be to get him to wear his glasses!! its worse than pulling teeth! But Joey likes being the big boy in the elementary school!

And talking about being the big dog on campus, Zach is in 8th grade this year!!! When did that happen. I swear I am going to stop blinking. But he came home from school happy, so thats a great start! I love happy kids!!! Makes me a happier mom!

Well, I guess thats all for now, I am off to make some treats for my school babies, once I figure out what I am going to make, I will post the recipe!
