The Big Pre-K

Well my last little baby has officially started school. Ems started preschool at a local church this past Wednesday. Its the same one her brother Nick went to. We absolutely LOVE the staff there and they treated us so good with Nick.

Emily was up bright and early with her brothers at 6am. To say she was a bit excited was an understatement. It was hard to make her understand that her school started later and that mommy would take her and that she wouldn't be getting on the bus with her brothers. So after breakfast and getting boys on the bus for school we got ready and snapped a few pictures.

Then it was off to school. I was so bummed that by the time we got to the school I realized my camera was on and in return now dead! So the cell phone is all I had at school.. But at least I snagged a few pictures!

After saying our goodbyes (btw I was a brave mommy and didn't cry, yet I did get that lump in my throat like it was coming at any moment) my brave little girl gave me a kiss and off I went.

Her teachers said she had a great day. The only "bump" was at nap time when she got sad and cried to go home. We will have to work on this, but in all reality Emily hasn't really napped since she was 1 year old... no joke.. So we will work on laying still and resting.

I'm so glad she had a great day and mommy did too. Its amazing how much you can get done without having to heard children with you. I got the car washed and tagged and took some clothes back and shopped at Kohls. I also got Joes numbers on the back of his new softball shirt and picked up chicken and dog food!! I even had lunch tucked away  in a quiet booth as I ate yummy soup and surfed on Pinterest! All in all it was a huge success..

No Words

Ok maybe I do have words, but they are not so nice.

I am about ready to ban all markers, crayons, and colored pencils from a certain little 3 year old.

I must say the girl has some pretty cute artistic skills, and momma loves her drawings. Just not on 4 walls in the house! I have hid the markers, then she comes up with crayons. I hide them and she magically finds a PERMANENT marker..

Ugh ok I give up.. Its a good thing she is cute! ;)

5th and 2nd

Well it is that time of year again and the kiddos are back in school. Wednesday was our first "official" day of school even though the boys only went for 2 hours for a meet and greet with their new teachers. This year I have a 2nd and 5th grader and it just doesn't seem right. Justin is maturing so fast before my eyes and breaking my heart with his little reminders like, "hey mom this is my last FIRST day of elementary school, ever".. Oh buddy don't remind me, mommy wants to to stay in elementary school for a few more years.. :)

And Nick is growing up in the blink of an eye. I look at him and think how in the world are you already in 2nd grade. Were is my little preschool boy that bounced out of the preschool doors when I pulled up to get him in the afternoons saying "mommy can we go get an ice cweeem cone".. Just look at him now, such a handsome 2nd grader!

And Miss Emily starts school next Wednesday and I will have more pictures of her first day. But for now she had to snag a pic with her "booooyzz" on their first day..
