Free At Last…

I kid, I kid. Sort of. Surely, I can’t be the only mother to be a little bit happy that school has started again. Right?

Here are a few photos from this morning… Kane is not pictured because he decided to take the bus this morning. He is, after all, in middle school now. Too cool for his mama.



Averie (in an outfit she not only picked out herself, but PAID for!):


Apparently, they are all too cool for me now. Once we got to school, Averie ditched me for her friends the minute we hit school grounds. The twins let me walk them inside to hang their backpacks up, then ditched me.



I stuck around to make sure they lined up when the bell rang. Their teacher told them to wait by the flagpole, and once the bell rang they were nowhere near the flagpole. Our school is super overcrowded, so I waited until a few classrooms had gone in before I went looking.


Here they are, arguing over where they are supposed to go. Hilarious. Never fear, Mommy saved the day.

    They look adorable!
    Averie has good taste…very stylish!

    Enjoy your first day with some Lissa time!

    I understand. I think I came home and did a little dance after I dropped the kids off the first day. We love our kids, but it is nice to have some time to ourselves! Your kids are so cute. The boys are just adorable. I love the bright new shirts. I love Averie's outfit. That is awesome that she paid for it too. So grown up. I'm glad the boys got lost (not too lost)…always nice to know they still need their mama!! Enjoy the rest of the day!

    I was a 'mean' mom who didn't know Delainey was supposed to be outside before school… whoops.
