Macey started 5th Grade
Miles 2nd Grade
And Crew Kindergarten!
We of course had our annual Back to School brown bag dinner.
I impressed the group with my amazing cake this year.
And yes, those are bubble gum squares on top. I know what they like.
I think this is one of their favorite traditions and it's one of the simplest for me. Win Win.
Love these kids.
Macey and Miles started a week before Crew.
Macey was all smiles, while Miles had a bit of anxiety.
Luckily, one of his neighborhood bff's, Penelope, is in his class this year. Made a huge difference and I didn't even have to go into the building with him. He just walked in with his class and didn't even look back. We have come along way!!
While the big kids were in school all day Crewby and I had big plans that included the new Orem Splash pad.
always amazes me how easy 2 kids are when you're used to 4.
After hours of playing, we raced home to make a special after school snack for M&M.
I was pretty impressed with myself, my kids don't get a pinterest worthy mom very often. :)
I was sitting at the table anxiously awaiting to hear all the details of the first day when they walked in. Everything went awesome and it's been awesome ever since.
I got about 10 min with them, until they were outside running around with all the neighbor kids. As it should be.
I still had a few days left with Crew until Kindergarten started, so we fit in a few more things.
First thing on his list, play date with Madden.
2nd, Sodalicious date with just mom.
This kid has been my favorite lately. He's funny, sweet, and as cute as they come. After his kindergarten assessment he had both teachers fighting over which one of them got to have him in their class. I will say, I am bit jealous of his teacher.
This kids day finally came and Ruby and I were a bit sad about it.
Ruby had to be in all his pictures and the ones where she isn't, she is on the side crying and screaming.
I about died over this encounter. Something about little kids with big backpacks and siblings holding hands. These 2 are the best of friends and Ruby is desperate to be like the big kids. She just refuses to stay little for me.
There were a few tears, but mostly smiles dropping Crew off for his first day. He loves school and is the best at making me read with him everyday.
And Costco with one kid!!! Obviously I don't know how to order food for 1 child though. :)
Life and time are a weird thing, can't believe I have 3 kids in school.
And bless half day kindergarten.
An example of Crew's kindergarten cuteness:
He got a new teacher this week, so I asked him if he missed Mrs. Bauman. His response:
"No, I didn't miss her. Because every time I felt sad about her not being here I just thought of her and it made me happy. I have a really big brain mom, so I can think of lots of memories of Mrs. Bauman".
Love these kids. Love their teachers. And love I get Ruby all to myself a little longer.
