little miss thing x 2


Yesterday was THE day. THE day we’ve all been waiting for. The girls went to preschool! As some of you know our start day was pushed back for several reasons several times. This caused much discomfort around here. Ok maybe more for me than them. What can I say, after 7 years of having at least one little person with me at all times I was ready for a couple scheduled hours a week to do whatever I wanted. You know, wild and crazy things like cleaning the house and going to the grocery store.

We’ve been counting down the days and then we started recounting and recounting again  BUT we made it to yesterday. Carefully chosen outfits from the night before were put on by 7:30am. School starts at 12:15 my friends. Long morning for everyone involved. Finally, with MUCH excitement from everyone in the car we arrived to drop off time. We said a prayer for peace and confidence and lots of fun for the first day. With huge smiles, giggles and hand holding they hopped out of car and went right to their teachers. Wait, do I even get hugs? Quick hugs and kisses and off they went. And what’s this I feel? A little ache in my heart as I watched them bravely walk away. My big girls. I was so happy for them and proud of them. Oh, maybe I will miss these little sweet peas a bit.

But then without a minute to lose I hopped back in the car. I had to make the most out of the next 2 hours and 20 minutes and the grocery was calling my name. Told you I was getting all crazy!

I'm a wife to 1 amazing husband. A mom to 1 little dude and 2 girlie girls. A follower of the ONE who saved me. A daughter to 2 wonderful people. A sister to 1. A friend to many. A runner because that's what I do to keep from not going crazy. And the CEO of this little part of the world we call home.

    I hope you enjoyed your couple of hours being kidless. I am sure the time just flew by and you all were excited to see each other at the end of the day. You look forward to some quite time, miss them while they are gone, but can’t wait until they get home to hear how the day went. I think that is the best part of the day, when we are all sitting around the dinner table and the 3 of them are fighting for their turn to talk. Such memories to cherish.

  2. PRECIOUS. Love their matching backpacks! And I like to get my thrills by running the van through the drive-thru car wash. Exciting times! 😉

  3. Theresa that is exactly how it is! Loved it while they were gone but then just as much hearing what they did during their time. Yes, lot’s of good memories. Thanks for checking in!
