Well, here it is...9 months and 2 days since I've last blogged!! Let's just say I took some time off to have a baby :) Or we can say I took 9 months off to regroup and come to a realization that my kids and family miss my blog. I've found my kids looking back at past blog posts and laughing out loud at what I wrote or the photo that shows them doing something funny or how they looked a year ago. Not only do my kids miss my blog...I missed it too. So, here goes!!
Today was the first day of school for 2015! The summer went fast but it was time people...it was time. These kiddos needed to get back to a structured day full of friends, mental challenges and physical activity. Brady has been off since May so that boy needed to go! Kelsey needed to be with her friends as much as I needed her to be with her friends and Ellie just needed to get off of Pinterest and You Tube (I think Miranda Sings became a member of our family this summer!). All kids had an awesome day full of smiles and happy stories of how much they love their teachers and how much fun the day turned out to be. Surprisingly, the early morning wasn't a big deal and everyone woke up in time for a "once in a blue moon" breakfast of strawberry/banana smoothies and blueberry muffins.
Ellie's bus arrived 5 minutes early so this picture happened super fast. So fast that I didn't notice Kelsey's sign was upside down!
A big year ahead for this teenager. . .
Never lose your sense of humor, sweet Kelsey!
Big Kindergartner. . .
He had to throw the whip before he got on the bus!
These two are the reason I drink lots of wine!!
Of course it was garbage day which is always a sign of good luck :)
Just a little nervous but ready to go. . .
See you in 3 hours little man. . .
His good luck charm, Lego man. . .
And now it's time for Mama. . .coffee and Netflix!!
