It's that time again. I can't believe another school year is already starting. And this year I have
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.
