I had a bad guilt trip on the first day of school! I was told last year that moms are not allowed to walk 1st graders to class, so on the first day of school I just drove up to the curb and dropped him off. My first clue should have been that I was the ONLY one in the drop off line, but I didn't think much about it. Then I saw all kind of pictures of moms in Noahs class and other 1st grade classes walking their kids in and taking them to class! I felt SO bad! This is the last time I am a rule follower! :) I did talk to a mom from Noahs class and she said he was all smiles walking in and didn't seem to mind. I didn't say anything to him about it because I felt bad and didn't want him to think I just didn't want to do it, but stuck with that I wasn't supposed to. Before school he kept asking me how many hours school was. I told him 7 and he acted worried. I assured him that is how long he went last year and it will fly by. The first thing he said after school was "Mom, that didn't feel like 7 hours at all!"

I think it is going to be a great year for him - and for me too! I got to go back to volunteering on Friday and it was just what I needed! I seriously love getting to help out at the school and love the girls I get to volunteer with! Since it was the first week the teachers didn't have much they needed done so we just did extra work for our childrens teachers - like copying the reading homework for the whole year :) That school has such a fun and thankful environment - we are always laughing :)
Not to be forgotten is Ryan's first day of daycare as the oldest kid there! I cannot believe my baby is the oldest at daycare already! She had a great first week and was the only kid not to get any timeouts all week - which I am pretty sure is a first! She loves all the little girls at daycare and helping to take care of them and loves playing with Logan too :) Only one more first day of daycare and then she will be in Kindergarten - and I know all too well now that it will be here before I know it!
