The big three started school this week! I know. In July. It’s crazy. But, I’m a fan of the breaks throughout the year. And so are they as well as their teachers. We’ve got a 5th grader, 3rd grader and Kindergartener. This is the only time these three will be at the same school together!
They were all ready, especially E after her bus ride along.
However, B wasn’t as ready. She kept asking about going to school and why she didn’t get to go. There were some tears. She really didn’t care to try to understand, either.
I did try to distract her with a picture because she thinks it’s fun to look at herself. (Why not, she is pretty stinking cute!)
When they got home, she was so excited to see them, they each got their name individually yelled and big giant hugs. She was so happy to have them back home.
I don’t get enough pictures with the oldest. She’s a little more elusive. But, she still thinks I’m cool, so before church because we were all ready, it was time to snap a picture of just the two of us. Bonus points for us both being happy with the picture.
This week flew for us. I know part of it is figuring out the routine that is a new school year and new teachers. And part of it is they are getting older and we have to figure out how things are going to work.
What did you do this week?
GET IN THE PICTURE WITH YOUR KIDS! Who cares what you look like? Who cares how you appear? Who cares what you are wearing? JUST DO IT! Since the button code stopped working many moons ago, I took it out. But, if you are adding your link to my link list, please, as a courtesy, add a link back to my site so people can explain and link up themselves if they’d like. After all, that’s the point of the link up!
It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.
