first day.

my kids were at school all day, and i still didn't get the laundry finished.
actually, i didn't even start it until after they were in bed.
we had a good first day here.
jakob and leah start a day later than the other kids... so we'll see their first day tomorrow!

ellie- 3rd grade with Mr. Holroyd
anna, 4th grade with Mrs. Rutledge
drew, 6th grade with Mrs. Thompson- homeroom
cute kids.
sweet teachers.
yes, i even took a picture of drew's teacher.
when we pulled up to the middle school he asked, "are you going to walk me in?"
i said, "if you want me to."
he said, "sure."
he gave me directions to every class he had that day from his scrupulous study of the map.
i told him i was going to bring my camera to take a picture of him with his teacher.
he siad, "really?  i guess that's fine."
{i love that drew saved his black vans for school... they are $6 Target clearance shoes, but he would only wear them in the house so they would stay nice for school. the night before school i saw him cleaning the bottoms with a baby wipe. sweet boy.}
i could tell drew was nervous, because he was acting confidant.
i cried walking out of the building.
(i have a tendency to get teary in kindergarten and middle school...  funny huh?!)
i LOVE these kids.
a lot.

jakob and i went to breakfast with two of his friends and their mothers.
i love how he always wants to share his food with me, "you can try this mom."
and how he asks, "can i try your hash browns?"
and how he offered me some money to pay for his milkshake.
(he ordered a vanilla milkshake and pancakes.)
he's a good kid.
this year i have 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, preschool, 3 year old and active baby...
speaking of firsts... 
 check out that-- FIRST ponytail.
she's a cute little bugger.
today, life is good.
and tomorrow, i'm going to finish my laundry.
it's going to be a fun year!
