Today was the long awaited day!....Tanner and Logan's first day of kindergarten! We went yesterday to the orientation where Scott and I went with them to see their classroom, meet their teacher and get all the needed info. Then today the boys got on the bus for the first time...which they have been sooooo excited about. They were prepared with flowers in hand. Having been a teacher myself, I believe in kissing up right from the start:) It was kind of funny...this morning Scott went in late to work so he could video tape the boys getting on the bus. Well, after they got on and rode away, he looked down and realized the video camera was on pause the whole time....bummer!
I've had such mixed emotions. All week I've been a little bit sentimental about them going off to kindergarten...while at the same time rejoicing in the new found "freedom" of the prospect of only having two kids each morning. Today I went to Target and it was like a dream! For those moms of one or two kids...they may take this for granted, but after having to pack up and take four kids with me to every store all over town and just trying to manage getting things done while meeting the needs of four little kids...I am so excited about this prospect of not feeling quite so "stretched". Am I a selfish mom for not crying as they rode away today?? haha
When they came home, they were so excited to tell me about every part of their day. Anyways, here are some pics of them waiting for and getting on the bus. Sorry they are turned...I keep forgetting to turn them before I upload them and am too lazy to fix them right now:)
