Today was the kids first day of school, and Momma couldn’t be happier. It’s been a looooong summer! Our school was damaged in the flood, so we didn’t have school the entire month of May. And of course, school was out all of June, July, and August. It’s been 4 long months, and although I have thoroughly enjoyed having that time with my kids, it will be nice to have a couple of days a week to run errands and clean house sans kiddos.
Here are Chloe and Cole on their first day. I tried to get a pic of them together, but that proved to be a difficult task.
Both were equally excited when I dropped them off. They gave me a quick hug and kiss and waved good-bye. No tears from Cole! Woo hoo! When I picked them up at the end of the day, the preschool director met me at the door and told me Cole was “simply delicious” and that she could eat him up. She said she spent most of the day in his class helping out, and he was so happy, loveable, and sweet. That sure made me feel good because he had such a hard time last year for the first couple of months. When I picked Chloe up, her teacher told me she did not notice her missing tooth at open house. I told her the story, and she said Chloe’s tooth was so cute and that it just “suits her personality.” Hmmm… how should I take that? She also told me that Chloe was a “hoot” and talks a lot. On the way home Chloe told me she did not get the quiet mouse award. Why am I not surprised? She never once got it last year. But, it was a great day, and I am a happy Momma knowing that my kids are happy at school!
