My babies are going to school!!! Clara and Ruby are now in preschool. Ruby LOVES it... Clara is a little unsure about things. She is fine once she gets there (minus the hour long temper tantrum on her second day) but thus far, school is not her favorite place. Clara does not like changes. In the last two weeks she's had to adjust to Daddy working, daycare, school buses, kids on the playground...more buses, and more daycare. On the upside, she has invited her teacher to her birthday party, so perhaps a change is coming.
In fact, just today she told me today she is not going to cry on "that other day" when she goes back to school. (Monday) I actually think she is hitting me up for more Build a Bear clothes for her bears, but if they will stop the morning tantrums, it will be money well spent!
Matthew, is LOVING kindergarten. He is in the Montessori program at our school and is really excited about the animals, the hands on activities, and his teachers. He also still gives me kisses in the hallway when he sees me. But not without a quick glance at his teacher to make sure she's not going to catch him out of line! I know I have to savor these stolen kisses, as soon he will be too big, and too cool to kiss his mommy in public. He still looks so tiny. I am hoping that he outgrows some clothes this year, or the endocrinologists figure out what is going on. Here's my handsome man on his first day...
Here are my "Man boys" who are now too cool to look excited for school, Noah is in 7th grade this year. This picture pretty much sums up his excitement. He pretty much leaps out of the minivan prior to it coming to a complete stop in the morning lest I say something embarrassing like "Love you bubby" for his friends to overhear!
Ricky was apprehensive about starting school. His best friend is in a different 3rd grade class, and his other best friend is now going to a private school. Despite his worries, he Dylan told Dylan's dad that they did not need him to walk them to school on the first day, because they were "MEN"!
He is now on a mission to earn lunch with his teacher. To do this he has to keep his name on the "golden board" all marking period. Something tells me he will do it!
pipe fitting trade. My class is off to a good start. They seem super sweet, and well behaved! I feel very lucky! I spent a good part of today in my classroom, looking for my dongle, which I seem to have misplaced. (Dang it!) Guess I'll have to go to the mall.......
God is good. All the time.
