First Day of School!!!

A little stroll down memory lane..........

Last year!!!!!!! LOOK HOW YOUNG THEY WERE!!!! They're growing too fast!!!

And now, pics from this year!!!

Best family pic I could get with my wonky tripod.  And the sun was shining in my face! ;-)

And Lillian clearly appears inconvenienced.

Lillian, Rhodes and I are MOST DEFINITELY going to have to come up with our own routine. I was thrown for a loop yesterday (not to mention BORED - yes BORED without the 2 oldest!) with naps, errands, carpool - it may take a few days to sort through which daily routine works best for us. 

The biggest challenge is nap time.  They still NEED a nap everyday (Rhodes still should take 2),  and until yesterday, it was from 1:00 to 3:00....or so!  Now school gets out at 2:30 and I can't decide to put them down before/after or for Rhodes BOTH! 

I think things will pick back up after Labor Day (library, small groups, etc) and it will give our week a nice flow.  And then they gym of course!  I'm starting a new Horizontal Conditioning class at the Y.  You're basically in a plank for an hour!!!  But it seems to give amazing results - everyone in the class looks GREAT and the teacher/class has a huge following!  I'm just ready to try something NEW!

Hopefully the upcoming change of season will bring other nice changes.  I think a transition will be refreshing!  I'm already transition into having 2 kids in school and 2 toddlers!!!   It'll be weird not to have a baby around or be pregnant!

The kids, from what I can tell, had a great first day of school.  I only get little bits and pieces from their day.  I heard most about the "stoplight" or discipline chart.  :-)  We shall see how that unfolds throughout the year! 

Here's to a good 2nd grade and kindergarten year!!!!!!!!!


  1. I can't wait to hear about your daily routine. I can't wait until we get back in a routine too once our groups resume after Labor Day as well :)

  2. Can't believe how much they grew in just one year!


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