Back to school

Austin started first grade this morning.  Sigh...she was very excited but the feeling is not mutual for Joe and I and especially Goose.  Who looked incredibly sad when we left the school this morning, knowing that she wouldn't have her partner in crime around for the next 8 hours.  It was heart breaking to watch.  At least she gets to start preschool next week so that will help in the afternoons.

And look who is big enough to sit in the front of the cart rather than in his car seat.  He was pretty proud of himself.

What does a control freak do when she thinks she may be gone for the first day of school?!?!? Creates a school tub with all the school clothes, a package of special school type items for treats, and first day of school zip locks with everything from panties to shoes all packed up and cards that I wrote to each girl while I sobbed at the thought of not being there.  Thankfully I was here for Austin's first day, hopefully the same will be true for Tyler's.

We had to go to school on Friday to meet the teachers and get the class assignments.  While waiting on the teachers to be ready we visited the playground...Jackson loved the swings!!!

Big happy boy!! Love it.

So glad you were there for the first day. And bonus: you're totally all prepared with that tote!

I'm so happy that you were there! You deserve to be there with every minute you've put in, love you've shown and tears you've cried! Love you Crystal!
