Roughly, 175 Days Til Summer

I know, I know they just went back to school! But, I love my kids home!! I hate the fighting and I hate the messes but I like knowing they are "somewhat" safe from the "world!"

As much as I love schedules, love a cleaner house, love not having to make lunch for so many mouths, I love having my kids home MORE!! So, believe it or not I am already on the countdown!!

I love how they each have their own look!!

Skyler cracks me up, I remember the first day of school and not wanting to wear all my new clothes because everyone else would be wearing theirs so, I would wear boxers and a sweatshirt(what was my mom thinking) now that Sky does the same thing.....I think it's adorable

2nd day, game day

3rd day....... So which is it? What is Skyler's real look??

Exciting Day For Dallis

Sad day for mommy!! Today Dallis went to pre-school......why in the world would I put her in school so early? Well, thanks to my friend I couldn't pass up the deal of the century!! She is enrolled in school for the whole year for $50.00 yep that's right $50.00!! (I don't even have to volunteer) So, she either goes to the gym and play in the kids club or go to "school" with all of her church friends and get some sort of structure, why would I ever pass this up? She might go to school the most out of any of my other kids but I'm sure I will never ever have an opportunity like this again!! So, besides beating myself up for even thinking about putting her in school and then having to get her potty trained, tears and all we made it through the first day!!! I didn't realize It would stir up so many emotions......

I am so sad that I never got to

A) potty train Paris

B) I never got to have a 1st day of school with Paris!

C) I never got to buy Paris a 1st day of school outfit, shoes, backpack, take pictures..... the list could go on and on!!

I know this will be great for Dallis and I am grateful she gets this opportunity.....I think :)
