There was a lot of kicking and screaming going on this morning at our house! If you had been here you would have heard; "But, I don't want to!" or "I'm not going to!" or "I'm going to cry!" And, just so you know, all of this was coming from ME, not our children! Can you guess what went on here this morning? Here is a hint: I dread this day EVERY single year.
Yep! You guessed it! It's the first day of school!
I actually didn't behave the way that I described above, but I surely wanted to! I LOVE summer vacation and having my boys home with me! But, today this ends. :(
Here are the boys before they left for school today.
Here is Nolan standing in line to enter school.
Here is Caleb standing in line.
And, here is Caleb putting his supplies in his desk at school. (He's excited to have a desk "that opens up!")
Jacob says that he's "excited about seeing his friends again, and having P.E. & Art class." Other than that, he's sad to see summer vacation end as well. Nolan says that he "is excited about EVERYTHING!" And, Caleb says that he's "50% happy and 50% sad."
So, how does Gavin feel about all of this?
He's his happy self, as usual! But, I think that he will miss his brothers and all the fun that they provide him too!
Gavin starts school on Thursday! I didn't cry today, like I thought that I would, but I'm confident that Thursday will get those tears a rollin'! Say some prayers for me, cause I think that I'm going to need them!
