First Day of School

What a fun exciting day the first day of school was, Tuesday, September 8th! The kids were so excited and had their clothes out the night before, even the boys. This feels like it will be quite a year. We are in 5, five, yep, FIVE different schools this year! Isn't that some kind of record!! It sure is for me.
Just imagine starting out at 5:50 am getting the first one off, then hurry, hurry to get #2 out the door and on the bus, #3 is pretty self sufficient and does great getting herself ready and out the door 15 minutes after #2, BREATH. . . . . . . . .(there are days that I have to remind myself to breath during the craziness of morning times) then finishing getting child #4 & #5 ready for Elementary and after they get off I get to start on child #6, my sweet little preschooler.

This big kid is such a good sport, letting me take his picture on the First Day of School.

She was excited to ride the bus and see her teachers again.

She has been counting down the days until she could start school, be with friends, open lockers and walk to different classes. She is growing up way to fast.

Starting a new school today! I am excited about this year for him, what a handsome boy!

I am usually sad to have my kids start school, and I feel melancholy the first week but he was SO ready to go. Watch out Kindergarten Here I COME!

"One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just isn't the same" do you recognize this song? It is from Sesame Street, oh the good ol' Sesame Street days.
The one in green is my son's friend, our neighbor, walking to school with us on the first day of school.
After the first day of school I couldn't believe the HOMEWORK that the teachers gave to the kids FOR ME to fill out and send back the next day. I was filling out paperwork for hours.
Even during the crazy hustle and bustle that school and six children bring I can't help but be SO grateful for my wonderful kids and the opportunity I have to stay home and be a mother.
