1st Day of School 2010-2011

Wow, what a day. For those who know me or who have been reading my blog for a years now, know that I am always so sad on the first day of school! The boys headed off for their new adventures. Michael is a freshman in high school, Neil is a 7th grader, restarting middle school (in TX, 6th grade is middle school so he started last year off in middle school and then went back to elementary school when we got here), and Daniel is a 4th grader. I have no idea where the time goes because I swear all three of my kids were just in diapers and hanging out at home with me.

Kevin was gone for the first day and that makes me sad. I think the first day of school is such a big moment and we like to make a big deal about it. I get up and send each of my boys off with hugs and kiss and a camera in hand. I like to be waiting for them when they get home...I'm like a kid on Christmas with the anxiety I feel when I know the boys will be home soon!

All three boys had a good first day. Neil said his day was boring because they didn't really do anything but he was happy to see his friends again. Michael did a lot of walking all over the big high school but he is excited about his schedule. Daniel makes me laugh because his 4th grade class is his old 3rd grade class, so he didn't feel he really moved.

I'm excited for each of my boys and the adventures that await them this year, I know it's going to be a great year for them!

Wow, what a group of handsome boys/young man. You have a lot to be proud of, and I know you are. The time we have with our children isn't long enough, I remember Michaels first day of high school like it was yesterday and now we are driving him to college....ugh.

It's obvious that you are a good mother.

I'm sending my oldest to Kindergarten this year and I know I'm going to cry and cry and cry when that day comes.

I came here from Cjane's "We're On Our Way Over" post. It's nice to meet you.
