(43-13) Back To School
Last night both Lyndzi and Kelsie were very excited about going back to school; so much so, that they didn't think they'd be able to sleep. Nicky on the other hand was less enthusiastic; even though he loves school.
As is our first day of school tradition; the intoxicating aroma of Cinnamon Rolls was permeating the air of our home this morning. Lyndzi was so happy about going back to school, that she woke up just after 530 am; followed shortly by Kelsie; and Nicky waited for us to wake him at 630. The kids don't typically get up until 7, but since it was their first day back to school, they needed to have extra time for the ever enjoyable, back to school pictures.
Now I don't insist that the kids dress up, but they usually like to wear something that they've never worn to school before; so both girls opted for the dresses that they'd used for my cousin's wedding and Nicky had a new pair of cargo shorts and a v-neck t-shirt. I think that this is the first year EVER, that Nicky hadn't worn a polo shirt on his first day; but his attire was meant to illustrate his more relaxed attitude.
What can I say; A picture is worth a thousand words. I'm as proud a Mama as you think I am and although the stillness of my house will take some getting used to again; it will be an honor to watch them all grow and learn for another year.
Till next time...
Queen of EVERYTHING
