Back to school!

Well they are off and at school, hopefully having a great time. This morning went smoothly. Getting them back to bedtimes and morning routines the last two weeks really helped. Everyone was up by 7:00am, ate and got dressed without too much reminding.

Adam went to work late today so he could drop off Jake and Nick for me. The two boys had no issues this morning and Adam timed the ride by taking the route I will need to all week until their bus assignment is fixed so that I will not be late getting Alex to his school or Nick and Jake to theirs.

Alex had his back pack on walking around the house at 8am even though we didn't need to leave until 8:40am. He was so happy to go this morning. Well, that was until we actually got there. He was smiling, but nervous as we walked in. When we made it to the door of his class though, we were greeted by a screaming child on the floor literally holding on to his mom's leg as she was trying to go. So that made him worry a bit to say the least. I just gave his hand a squeeze and told him "That little boy must not know how much fun he was gonna have at school today, huh?" and he just looked up at me with those big eyes. We went and found his cubby and he put his backpack away. We found Miss Tracy and his other teacher whose name I can not think of at the moment. When I tried to say goodbye to him he dropped his head and covered his eyes like he would cry, but I crouched down by him and tried to tell him about all the fun he was going to have. He gave me a hug and a kiss and after some probing from the teacher, he took her hand and was off to find all of the places with his name around the room and find something to play with before circle time.

Now I will be leaving in a little bit to go and get him! Hopefully his first day will have been great! After that we will come home and get some laundry done, have lunch and get Matthew down for a nap before we have to leave to pick up Nick and Jake.

Here they are this morning.....
