First Day of School 2010

Summer went way too fast, well except for the 3 weeks right before I had Sawyer, and its back to school already. Yeah!!! I'll admit it, I am happy to have my kids back in school. I gives me a little bit of power back. I can't tell you how many times I heard "But Mom, it's summer and we can do whatever we want" well now it's not summer and they have to do whatever I want. Plus it's just nice to be able to do things again without 5 kids.
Maggie started Jr. High this year. She is turning into such a beautiful young woman. I asked her on the way to school how she was feeling, expecting "excited" or "nervous" or even "scared" and she answered me saying "tired, really tired" isn't that about par for jr. high. It kind of made me laugh. But her first day went well. She was chosen to be on leadership team this year and had already spent quite a few days touring the school and opening lockers so when the first day rolled around she was a pro. I'm a little overwhelmed with all the different papers to be signed and trying to remember what she needs for each class and where she has to be when and holy crap... the fees that come along with Jr. High. I guess I better start saving for next year. Anyway, I guess we'll figure it all out. Isn't she cute? Do I have to worry about boys now?

Dane started 5th grade this year. He's just as "Dane" as ever. All he worried about the first day was whether or not Abby was going to like him again this year. He's liked her since they were in the same class in 1st grade and even told me last year they were boyfriend/girlfriend. I think he even said they were going to get married. So the consensus was that she still liked him so that made him happy. Dane also loves to chat in class and he came home the first day informing me that his teacher would be calling me. Oh Dane...what are we going to do with you???
Emma started 1st grade this year and could not get to school soon enough. She was asking an hour and a half before school started when we could leave. We ended up walking to school so she wouldn't have to sit around and wait for another 30 minutes. She had a great first day. For the first time in her already 4 years of school she got to go for a full day and eat lunch at school, which by the way was the only thing she wanted to talk about when she got home. She loved being one of the big kids who got to eat lunch at school. Unfortunately her excitement ended quickly. On the third day of school, she came home telling me that she went to the principals office because she missed me so much and they wouldn't let her call me. She informed me that she wouldn't be going to school on Monday because she loved me and just wanted to stay home and be with me. How sweet, NOW GO BACK TO SCHOOL!!! Love that girl!My Crazy kids. Gotta get a silly picture in, in order to get the good ones.

Preston will be starting later this week so we will add him in later. He's excited for preschool to start up again. I guess Sawyer and I aren't that exciting and he's getting a little bored.
