School House Rawks

I now interrupt this blogging silence to inform you that I am officially a "mother of school-aged children."  This past week all three kids headed into the public school system as our summer came to an abrupt but not altogether unwelcome end.  


Judging from this picture, this will be one heckuva year.


Tbone: 4th Grade, has same teacher JBird had.  This should be interesting.
JBird: Big 6th Grader, they switch classes throughout the day to "mimic middle school."  I might mimic the fetal position thinking about my little JBird in middle school next year.


Then, on Wednesday, a little sweetykinz became a Kindergartener!  What's funny is she has the same teacher that both TBone and JBird had.  She likes having her two brothers there and asks every adult she comes in contact with "Do you know my brothers? I look just like Tbone."  The librarian told JBird all about it.



She is in the afternoon class and that morning of the first day of school was torture.  She asked me if it was time to go every 5 minutes.  I finally had to threaten that if she asked me again she wasn't going to kindergarten.  Thank goodness she didn't call my bluff.  



There was a mom there who was crying.  She was wiping the tears away under her sunglasses.


This emotion on such a glorious day is foreign to me.



I high-fived Standsmom and got the ayche outta there.

Hooray for school!

Weird question:

Why the ayche is StandsMom kid holding empty tupperware?

It's not a weird question at all... but it wasn't empty. It had a huge yet dead butterfly in it. I didn't think that was on the school supply list but Sarah has her reasons.

I love that your children attend an elementary school named after their mother. It must make them pretty popular.

They named an Elementary School after you? Huh?

StandsMom said...

::high five!!!:: As previously stated by you, Kindergarten is the best invention ever. And everyday I ask her how her day was and all she can talk about is the playground. Love the school sign. I wish it really did say that.

P.S. That one up close picture of Beebs...wow! She changed a lot over the summer. It makes me sad. But she's so pretty. Yes a lot like T-Bone, but that also means a lot like you. :)

I will be the weird one crying about it. I still can't believe how early your kids go back to school. It is barely summer.

Has anyone else noticed that Memzy always leaves 2 comments in a row?

After I dropped Howie off for kindergarten last year I cried so hard I had to be hospitalized for dehydration. You and Stands are cold hearted snakes. I'm pretty sure 1st grade is going to kill me off. Not to mention Bailey starts high school. I better start drinking lots of water.
