If I am totally honest I was READY for the First Day of School this year. This Summer with my four feisty, needy, cranky, messy, stubborn, wonderful, precious, funny, amazing handfuls left me pretty weary.
I don't want to be one of "those Mom's" that is excited about her kids going to school. And I felt really guilty about my lack of sentiment as I sent Wyatt off for his first day of Kindergartner, but that was just how the cookie crumbled this year.
This picture pretty accurately describes our morning - YAWN!! We had just gotten back from Telluride a few days before and we were having trouble adjusting back to the school schedule!
But other than being a little sleepy my big boys were ALL smiles.
When he tried on his uniforms a few weeks earlier I was ooing and ahhing over how cute and grown up and kindergartnerish he looked. A few minutes later he came over and whispered in my ear, "Mom, say some more stuff about how I'm a Kindergartner."WYATT PURDY SMITH I ADORE YOU!
I had originally thought Stacey would be out of town so I had asked GP (or BP as the Cs are currently calling him) to watch Coyt and Crew. But his trip got cancelled so we ALL got to be there, a nice treat.
Stacey takes the boys to school every morning on his way to work which is an incredible blessing for me!! SO he accurately noted that I was actually the one tagging along for the first day not him.
Cousin Twin - another awesome perk, having your cous in your class - AWESOME!
