Oh Happy Day

The summer session of preschool started today. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can't see me jumping up and down. I'm really trying to contain my excitement, lest my sweet darlings think I was ready to get rid of them. I mean, I'm sure they didn't think anything of going to bed with their clothes on under their pj's and backpacks hanging on their arms, or the fact that we were sitting in the parking lot at 6 am waiting for the doors to open.

Don't get me wrong. I adore these children, and wouldn't give anything for the privilege of being here all the time to see and experience it all with them, but you know what they say. My heart will grow fonder I'm sure with just a little distance between us two mornings a week.

We made quite the entrance at school though. Stuart started wailing as we walked in the door, the 4 of us, William holding Catherine's hand, me holding her other hand, and Stuart turning beet red and howling in the carrier. This "well meaning" lady I'm sure standing in the hallway gave me this look and said loudly "THREE little ones? You sure have your hands full!"

YA THINK??????

Son looks excited. Daughter, not so much. More like, "Mom, are you sure?" Enjoy your new-found freedom!
