I did it, I did it,

I did it, Yay! (put up a new post that is)
Are you just about sick of that last post yet? Her going to cheer camp was exciting, but really... not THAT exciting. :) The summer months have just gone way to quick and are back in school. *sigh* So here are the kids, on Monday before heading out to school. 6:30 in the morning is WAY to early if you ask me... but doesn't look like there's much chance. We can't even really hope for a snow day here. So Bug was SUPER excited to go to school. He was up and dressed before my alarm went off. Crazy nut. Nutmeg on the other hand... well, lets just say the nerves set in. And don't let the pictures fool you. I don't know how she pulled those out because, she cried at the drop of a hat and wanted nothing to do with getting ready. But at the same time, was excited. It was rough. She just kept telling us she was too shy and nervous. When we got to classes, Bug was outta there. No biggie for him. Then off to drop Nutmeg off. She was being very brave and strong, putting all her stuff away just like they told her to do. Then they sent her to the table to color. She was very aggressively coloring. I knew it was all she could do to not cry right then. Matt really wanted to go and give her a hug goodbye, not realizing the fraility of the situation and that's when she broke. Clinging onto his legs. Tears streaming down her face. Not about ready to let go. It was really sad. They ended up kind of prying her off his leg so he could leave and we left her there. Piled in a heap on the floor. Crying. Lucky for me we've done this before in Pre-K. So I was some what prepped. But it's still hard to leave your little one on their first day, like that. Well... she is loving it now, so it's all okay! Wow. A Kindergartener and a 1st grader!

We Miss you guys! I wish I would have gotten some pictures too. I am kicking myself because I wanted you to take pictures of Mia sooo bad. We do want to come out there, we have talked about it before but we are not sure when. We probably wouldn't be able to until next summer. Your kiddos look really cute on their first day. Poor Nutmeg, I am glad she pulled through. It was fun to read about them and feel like I know them a little bit better.

I was wondering when you were going to post something new. There is nothing more disappointing to come to a blog and find the same post day after day. Just kidding. I can't believe she is a kindergartner. I was just yesterday wasn't it when she was in my nursery class. I think I need to ask time to stop for just a while. Time is flying by way to quick!

Wow, she really did pull off some cute pics for being so close to melt down! I'm so glad she's liking it more. Bug looks so happy. :)
