We Made It!

I did indeed cry out all my tears last night! I did have a few tear-up moments this morning, but it was actually a really sweet time for all of us. I figure I got all caught up in the process of getting them to school, that there really wasn’t any lag time to cry. Jason was able to go with me to drop off Natalie, then he left and took Nicholas on to his school. I stayed for the “Kleenex and Coffee” and met some other moms, and heard some inspiring words. I did grab a kleenex, but didn’t use it. We were then invited to join the students in the sanctuary for Chapel. So, that was fun.

Here are some pics of the kiddos this morning –

When I picked up Natalie, she had the biggest grin on her face. She said she had such a great time, met 3 new friends, learned to count to 20 in Spanish, and played in “The Green Spot”. Nicholas had a good time too. He said he forgot to play with anyone, he played by himself. Although he did talk about playing with 2 friends he already knew. So, not sure what that means.

So, we made it! And crazy enough, we don’t have to do it tomorrow. That’s right, all schools are closed here because of Tropical Storm Fay. I personally think it is kind of nice because we can kind of ease into the school thing now. And I am even more thankful because it appears that the storm will not be as bad as first thought.

    We have a Boo Hoo Breakfast for kindergarten parents. Now that we have a “big” first grader, we were on our own last week.
