Monday (8/14) We were supposed to head to Zoombezi Bay for one last fun day of vacation, but we were all exhausted after the weekend! We decided to just hang out at home and relax. The boys played a ton of board games with me and Nana. They also played some video games while we unpacked and cleaned up a bit. We headed out in the afternoon for a few errands and a trip to Graeter's for a special treat from Nana. We had a nice family dinner when Adrian got home and played some more board games at night. We tried to head to bed early (it didn't really work) to try to get ready for school later this week.
class, we ran to Great Clips to get haircuts for school. All three
boys did great and we were in and out in less than 20 minutes. Of
course then we had to make a stop at Krispy Kreme for donuts for our
first day of school. We quickly came home, had lunch and headed out to
meet the teachers. We started at AJ's new school, where he will be only
this year since it is only 5th grade. He will have three teachers and
all of them seemed great! He is super excited his BFF Brooks is in his
class again and that he saw a few other boys that he knows. When we
finished there, we headed to the school where Daniel and Zak will go.
Daniel is returning for his 4th year there & of course it's Zak's
first (of 5 years) there. They were all excited to meet their teachers
and are ready to go for a great school year!
(8/16) First day of school!! AJ has to get up really early this year
to catch the bus and he got up on his own this morning. He's very
excited for the new school year and we're very proud of him. Adrian and
I got him out the door together and then I hung with Zak (who also got
up at 5:30 for no reason) until it was time to get Daniel up and ready
for school. After we dropped him off, Zak and I were going to go out
and do something but we decided we'd rather hang out at home. We played
Life, Sorry and he played Minecraft while I did a few things around the
Thursday (8/17) First day of school for
Zachary!! AJ struggled a little bit more to get up this morning, but we
managed to get him on the bus in time. Then I focused on getting
Daniel and Zak up and ready. We got to school a little early because I
was helping in the hallways to direct students. I did great dropping
Zak off and saying Goodbye and went about my business of volunteering.
Then I had to go to his hallway, and I peaked in his class. He was
sitting with about 5 other kids, eating his breakfast & having a
great time! I lost it in the hallway and hurried to the bathroom so
none of the kids would see me crying. I didn't think I would be this
emotional about sending him to kindergarten but I was.
When we got home, Zak was exhausted. He
dropped his stuff on the floor, grabbed a Gatorade & laid down on
the floor. It was pretty funny looking at him. He rested for about
30-40 minutes and then he was up and running again! Daniel was supposed
to have his first soccer practice tonight but it cancelled due to bad
weather. So we had a nice relaxing family night at home with some
games, magnet blocks & TV time. Early bed time again for us, hoping
we can stick to the early bed time all year because this Momma is
