First day of school jitters?

Monday, August 24, 2009

Well, not so much about the jitters.

I mean, Ashton is in the 4th grade, so she's a big fish this year and knows the drill.

Taylor? Well, he may be in Kinder, but he's so ready to go to school. Last night he laid out his clothes and we set his alarm. This morning, he got up on own, got dressed, fixed his hair, and ran downstairs! I was cooking breakfast (well, I was putting cinnamon rolls in the oven, don't get too excited!) and he proceeded to jump and down telling me how excited he was... about PE!!!

I didn't have the heart to tell him they don't have PE everyday.

Poor things. Their backpacks were so heavy. Daddy was carrying Taylor's while Ashton just had to suck it up until we dropped him off. Then I carried it. :)

Momma's little boy...

Every little boy needs a good pep-talk from their daddy, right? (Love it.)

There he is. All grown up. It won't be long until he'll be starting college. (*cue the waterworks*)

And this is what you get when you try to take a picture of a 4th grader. (She really was sweet, she just didn't want me embarrassing her in her skinny jeans, vintage tee, and new converse. Well excu-use me!)

I'm sure they're having a fabulous day, but yes, I'll spend my entire day staring at the clock and checking the website to see what they're doing at that time.

And I really hope Taylor has PE today.

Your family is so handsome/pretty! It's so nice when they are excited to go to school. My oldest starts 4th grade, number 3 starts kindergarten and number 2 will be in second grade. I didn't realize our kids were the same ages!

How great that Taylor was sooo motivated! Way to go!

yep, we had our share of waterworks...3x over...when each of ours started college!

(When ours were in Kindergarten, 1-12th...I admit, that I was forever around at each of their schools...volunteering! glad that they didnt mind me being there haha)

In fact, my current post shows some of our son with some of his elementary teachers! We took a stop on our way driving him back to college in KY). He has grown! Please leave a comment if you get a chance to stop by.)

I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
