1st Day of School

It's that time again.  I can't believe another school year is already starting.  And this year I have 
FIVE KIDS
in school.  Holy moly.  Only one at home.  How does that even happen?

Craiger is a Kindergartner this year.  How exciting is that?  He's been waiting 2 years to join his big brother at school.  He's been so excited & loves his new teacher Mrs. Fox.

My happy school aged kids.




I did cry dropping Craiger off in his Kindergarten class.  Why can't they stay little forever?  I love this kid so much.


And now it's just me & Canyon at home.  It's fun having some alone time with him.  He's such a cutie.  I don't know what I'm going to do when he starts school in a couple of years.  :-) 

Happy 1st Day of School everyone!!!


*PS - So. . . now that we've had school for a few weeks I want to add that the school pick-up schedule here is horrendous.  They really need busses here.  I leave my house at 1:30 to pick up Craiger at 2:00.  Kindergarten gets out earlier than all the other grades.  Then I drive to the middle school to pick up Lo at 2:55, back to the Elementary school to get Bladen at 3:10, back to the middle school to get Cadence at 3:50, & back to the elementary school at 4:20 to pick up Taya from play practice.  YIKES.  BUT . . . on the positive side, it's giving me time to read again.  I've forgotten how much I love books & it's really been years since I've read.  Now I'm reading 3-4 500+ page books a week which is AWESOME.
