Catching Up

First things first. . our little girl started school today. Real school. Preschool. Public school. The truth is out – – I am one of THOSE moms. I dropped off my little girl and cried when I go back in the car! Called my mom and let her give me a pep talk.

The thing is, Little did great. All the way up to the door she said, “I’m going to my new school” and “I have my backpack.” All her teachers were waiting outside to greet the kids and in unison they yelled, “Her Name!” She took off running and saying “It’s my new school!” “Hey, Ms. Marets!” She was thrilled and completely relaxed. I handed over her supplies, got a kiss and walked back to the car, praying that God would protect her and help her.
Picked her up at 11:30 and she walked out in a line with the class. Her teacher said, “Look whose here” and Little calmly replied, “It’s momma” Obviously she was in no rush for it all to end. the teachers said she did great. Of course, Little doesn’t answer questions, usually, but I did get tthe information that she painted with red and yellow today. Good grief – where did the 3.5 years go???

Next, Bubba has had a rough few weeks; first hand, foot, and mouth then a cold. I am not sure what is going on now. He has new little blisters on his knees, his feet are peeling away from what I can only guess is the HFM leftovers, and he is so tired all the time. His thumb barely ever leaves his mouth. In this picture you see him stuffing ravioli into his mouth without removing is thumb. He also accomplished this with quiche for lunch, muffins for breakfast, and with his green beans at dinner. I think I’m calling the doctor tomorrow.

Honey turns 33 this Thursday. Our friends came over Saturday, BJ’s birthday, and we celebrated together. Silly men blew out their candles together while Little, Robin and I sang our hearts out. It was a fun afternoon.

Does it get any cuter than this? Also a big reminder that they are watching us and patterning themselves after us. Heaven help us – – PLEASE!
