I feel as if I have spent the better part of the last two weeks finding forms, filling out forms, going to doctor appointments, and otherwise just getting the kids ready for school.
Today was no different other than it's all beginning to get real.
They really are going to new schools. New big schools.
I really am going to have a middle school student!
My youngest is really going to Kindergarten. All. Day. Long.
Please don't worry about them. They are all doing just fine.
Today we were able to take a tour of the schools and find out where the kids classroom's were located. There were maps of the school set out for the kids and they were encouraged to go on a Scavenger hunt to find all of the important rooms in the school. At each of these rooms (The Library, The Music Room, etc...) there was a pack of stickers waiting and the kids could place one on their map. Even Will enjoyed this activity!
We found Will's name on his locker near his class.
As you can see, they are doing just fine. It's me that's going to be crying on the first day of school. It's me that's going to be holding on to my box of Kleenex as I wave goodbye.
In the mean time, I am enjoying the simple moments.
All of us girls decided to paint our nails this evening...I snapped a photo of these two enjoying the activity side-by-side (a moment that is rare).
Lucky for me, Audrey insisted she paint my nails. And my do they look pretty.
Last we enjoyed our evening walk.
In case you were wondering...yes, it did take (them) a really long time to get prepared for this event.
But as you can imagine we met lots of new friends along the way.
