Picture coming soon!

Well I had an appointment today at the dr. Riley went with me and she was able to hear the baby's heart beat. It was pretty exciting. next month we go for the big ultra sound. Hopefully we will be able to find out what we are having. I am honestly hoping for another girl. Riley needs someone to play with like Ian and Caleb have each other. My nausea has gone down, I think the allergies are starting to go away. I have only gained 8lbs in 15 weeks which I think is pretty good. I know being back at work helps- LOTS of walking and I am on my feet almost all day long. Plus being active with the boys baseball team is good too.

Kids are enjoying school and Ian is doing well with Kindergarten. Caleb is doing great with 1st grade and next week his is the star of his class. We will get to decorate a bulletin board for him, eat with him and send in a special letter. I am super excited for him.

We have made it though 3 weeks of school and 4 of me being back at work. It is going well, getting back into a routine. Hopefully by the end of August I will be getting it all done well. :)

I'll post some pictures of the kids soon, and maybe one of me, if I can get a good one! :)

THE first day of school!!!!

*Ian and his teacher Mrs. Jernagan
*Siting at his table (her room is a beach theme, so they colored Hawaiian shirts)
*Best shot of all 3 this morning. (I have to work on getting Caleb to open his eyes- I had so much trouble with that when I was his age!)
* Ian wanted a special picture with just Riley- they may fight like cats and dogs, but they truly love each other!

Well- Today was the official start of school! The boys were so excited- I went to wake them up and all I said was "Good Morning!!! It is the first day of school!" and they were at the stairs before I even realized it!! :) Once we got to school, Caleb joined the 1st graders in the gym. Ian, Riley and I sat near the Kindergarten side. When they told us to head to the room, I went over and told Caleb that I would take Ian to class and then go to his to get a picture. He politely told me that he didn't want me to and he really wanted to go by himself (insert knife!). Do being the good mommy that I am, I cried and begged to get just one picture (really I just asked again) but was refused. So I hugged my BIG boy and let him to on his way. (sniff) We got to Ian's room and His teacher Mrs. Jernagan was there and said there was a message on the board. So I read it to Ian and he did as he was supposed to (put lunch box up and hang back pack up) then he sat down to color his picture. I managed to convince him to get a picture with his teacher, and then he patted me on the shoulder and said "Mommy, time for you to get to class". And that was it. No long hugs (on his part) and no worries. We hugged and I told him I would pick him up at Mrs. Sabrina's (she runs the learning center there and was Ian's pre-k teacher 2 years ago- they have phase in days this week).....and he said "bye" and continued coloring. that was it...bye. That's all!! So again, I was the good mommy, and smiled though the tears that were threatening to pour out of my eyes, got Riley in the car and drove safely (well...we drove fast since I still had to make it to my school on time) to school, where Riley went in with out so much as a bye, hug or kiss. When did they become such little adults???? But I got a huge hug from each as I picked them up and I heard all about their days. So I know, they are in good hands and that they did miss me and were excited to see me. I just wish they didn't grow up so fast!!

First Day

Fist of all, thanks to all who have emailed me with your info or left a comment. I will be making the change towards the end of this week. I will alert you before i do it just so you all know.

Monday if our first day back at school. Caleb will be starting 1st grade (!!!!) and Ian will be starting Kindergarten. It is so insane that they are old enough for this- seems like only yesterday we were all at home and they were so little! But they are growing, and even though it makes my heart ache for the times past, I am so eager to see them in the future. I can't wait to see what they do with their lives.

I will have pictures, and all the good stuff Monday evening. At this moment I am working on things I didn't get done for my classroom and getting all their supplies ready to go.
