First Day

Obligatory post :-) But how cute are they in their uniforms!

First day of 1st grade and 4K!!!

Landon definitely knew what was going on and was SUPER excited. Olivia fell right back into the swing of things like a pro. And was a very attentive big sister to her brother.

I think I had better first time obedience from him that morning than any other morning!! :-) He wasn't going to let anything go wrong!

Hugging sister goodbye - little does Lillian know that life's a changin' for her too!

Hugging brother goodbye! :-) So sweet!

When Landon was lining up to leave, I could tell he was upset over Olivia already being dismissed or trying to tell the teacher something. He looked stressed. So I ran over to make sure he was okay. I started saying, "it's okay, Olivia's going to her classroom, etc, etc". Anything to make him feel better.

The teacher touched my shoulder and said, "No, he's okay. He's ready to go to the classroom. He said wants to go NOW!" :-)

Bless his heart, he was just so anxious to get started he began leaving the room (not knowing where to go) before the teacher was ready!

I held up okay. It was a bit surreal. Not because we've been counting the days until school (we have out of pure excitement) but because the whole summer I've been telling the kids, "After school starts, it'll be time for the baby to come out!". And now school has started. WOW. Reality check.

I had good intentions of coming home and getting some big stuff done. But my body has recently informed me (in more ways than one) that I've overdone it lately. The only thing remedy for my issues is to lay down and put my feet up. Doctor said so. Gotta follow doctor's orders, huh. :-)

But the doc said baby is low (I could have told you that!!!) and I'm starting to progress. The doc also said 4th babies don't stay up there long. So it could really be any time.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't ready to get this show on the road! I personally prefer the newborn stage over the last few weeks of pregnancy. But that's just me.

So here's to Operation Get This Baby Out! I will listen (and possibly do) anything that has worked for others - and I've love to hear any suggestions!


  1. Sit on the dryer and drink some Grape Juice...That's what I've heard works...But you know I've never been pregnant so who know...I need to make sure I am on the call when baby boy is born list....You know the drill! LOVE YA!

  2. Well at the risk of making some blush, you know what always works. Sometimes it does when you don't mean for it to as well. Matter of fact "some people" (I won't use my name) have been known to be told by their doctors to lay off the wonderful side of marriage to quit going into preterm labor every freakin' time. lol

  3. They look so cute in their sweet little uniforms! I'm so glad that Landon was excited!

  4. These are the cutest and sweetest photos EVER!! So precious! I hope they had a good first day of school!


If you don't have anything nice to say, then, please don't say anything at all! THANKS!
