THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!
My baby is now officially a Kindergartener. Time flies, and waits for NOONE! I wanted to share some pics. Daddy came home between jobs so he could be there to walk them to class on their first day. Kelly's class is in the new wing. The paint was barely dry, lol. We were so fortunate again for having such great teachers.
Oh my, the kids have been back to school for a month now. The day before the first day the kids went to "Meet the teacher". They were excited to go and visit their classrooms. It is going very smooth so far. I am still working on Kelly's album. I am only as far as 1st grade and she is entering 3rd. Kindergarten is going great for Jal! She seems to love it!!!! My most embarrassing moment so far this year is she told the teacher I am always on the couch or on the computer. I had to laugh. It is such a Jillian thing to say. Then I was upset because I realized that is what she thinks of me. So now everytime I sit down on the couch I am careful to point out to her that ok now mommy is sitting down to FOLD THE LAUNDRY. Now mommy is sitting down to READ all the papers from the backpacks, etc. I thought getting my work done during the day and spending quality time with them in the afternoon was a good thing. They both have to read everyday so I read to her and log it in. All the while I'm making dinner, doing laundry and chasing my 3 year old around. Or I'm running taxi to Brownies, music class, SAC meetings, or some other social event of my children. There are knocks on the door all the time from the girls in the neighborhood asking to play. I am on the computer alot though. Everytime I get a chance. Bad mommy, lol!!!!!
