Back to School

Sep 8, 2015
These 2 have been back in school for a few weeks now and I am finally starting to adjust.  


We did our annual back to school brown lunch bag dinner.  Miles loved being one of the special kids. :)




Macey was all excitement for the start of 3rd grade.  


She DID NOT want me to drive her to school, she wanted to ride the bus.  But I won, and got to drive her.  Although I was instructed no pictures.  :)


I was proud of myself for not crying after drop off, but that doesn't mean I wasn't devastated to loose my mini BFF.  


This girl is growing up and is rocking 3rd grade already.  


love her.  


Now onto Miles.  


He had his kindergarten assessment during Macey's first week of school.  It was anything but smooth.  There was crying, hiding, screaming, throwing of objects and a refusal to follow directions.  Pretty much it was horrible.  


The good thing is, after that circus act, they at least gave me the teacher I wanted him to have. :)  And things have been mostly on the up from there.    

Miles had lots of nervousness and excitement about the first day.  


I was preparing myself for an all out wrestling match to get him to stay.  But he did awesome and surprised me with how brave he was.     


Not only did he get the best teacher, he also got some good friends in his class, which has made it so much easier on both of us.  


I didn't shed any tears until the drive back home, which was a vast improvement from Macey's first day of kindergarten!



While he's had a few episodes in class, he has a great teacher who is willing to work with him and knows how capable he actually is.  


Macey picks him up everyday after school and Mrs. Lee said she's never seen a brother love his sister like Miles loves Macey. :)


I am thankful for wonderful teachers who love, teach, and take care of my kids when I can't be with them.

You just exude good mothering to me. The way you talk about, love and worry about your kids, the pride you show in them... it's inspiring, Kelsey.
