1st day of School!

What a day! I was so nervous that Monty wasn’t going to want to go but he was so excited that last night he stayed up until after 10:30 because he couldn’t wait. It is now quarter after 10 and the little tyke is still awake because he is so excited to go back. I am going crazy because I know he is going to be sooo tired tomorrow. I am getting to the point that Zach’s advise on bedtime isn’t looking so bad. :)


That is how happy and excited he was this morning. I however had butterflies in my stomach and about fell over walking into his school. He goes to the Montessori charter school and they meet in the middle school so it is huge! He gets to choose from 3 different lunch lines and he has a locker with a LOCKER COMBINATION! I have trouble getting it opened I don’t know how he is going to. I had to really concentrate on what we were doing in there or else I knew I would break down and cry. I am not ready for them to grow up. Man this summer went way too quick.


Here’s Ella all ready for 4K good think it is only 2 1/2 hours or else I would have probably had a nervous breakdown :) She didn’t want me to leave for a while so I got to hang out at her school for an hour, which I was very happy to do. Ella also really enjoyed school and was super excited to tell me about her partner she had.


Then there was Calvie who didn’t know what to do with himself so he put on Ella’s old jacket it was extremely hot out (in 90’s) and the shoes he insisted on having because they were just like Monty’s and grabbed his elmo Easter basket and played outside. I couldn’t stay outside with him very long because it was so humid and hot so I watched him from the window and kept asking him to come in. I think he really missed his brother and sister. We did go to storyhour at the library and went out to lunch so we had a nice time.

    I can’t believe how fast the kids are growing up…. that is making me feel old. Hey Charity did you know the word “gullible” isn’t in the dictionary.

    Such big kids. I’m sure that Monty and Ella will have a wonderful first year.

    Poor Calvie, looks like he’s trying to channel the other two by wearing their clothese. That boy is so darn cute.

    Where are the pics of my little Ollie and how he handled first day of kids in school? I’m guessing he was busy enjoying the new found piece and quiet with a nap.

    I’ve never seen a kid look so happy to go back to school as Monty does in that picture.

    What are you doing with all your free time in the afternoons? Probably napping or watching soap operas while eating bon bons.
