First Day of School

It is that time of year again! Back to school! I have to tell you that if I think to hard about the fact that this is Jaden's last year at my preschool I start to tear up. But then again, last week I was preparing my classroom for the year, and my two boys were driving me nuts. Picture me on a chair trying to staple a bulletin board while my two munchkins were wrestling on the ground next to me. Not so fun! But this will be my last experience of that, because Jaden will be in Kinder next year! Crazy! Wasn't he just in my belly two days ago? I am not sure that I am a fan of how fast time is flying these days. I do appreciate the fact that both of my kids are some what independent, sleep through the night, go on the potty, etc.. but I slightly miss my babies. I am certain that all mommies go through this at some point. So without further ado, here are this years first day of school pictures, or possibly second day of school.

We all had a wonderful first day. The kids love their new classes and teachers. And I hate to say it out loud, or online, whatever, but I think I might have the best group of three year olds and parents. They are all so sweet. We are happy to be back to a routine and playing with friends at school. And thank goodness for preschool, because I decided this summer that we are no longer doing art projects at home. I spend 5 minutes getting everything ready, ( like play dough), they spend 1.5 minutes playing with it, and then I spend 15 minutes cleaning it up. Same with paint, markers, crayons, etc.... I had a brainstorm about two weeks ago, and decided they get enough of that kind of stuff at school. I have enough to clean up with three males using toilets at my house! HA! So here is to a new year filled with fun!
