Back to School

  Hattie's first day of 2nd grade. (Yesterday)

 Leif's first day of Pre-school. (This morning)
 Hailey's first day of Kindergarten. (This morning.)
(Hailey has a staggered entrance this week and Leif will go on Tuesdays and Thursdays.)
There is a big wet spot where Hailey wiped her hands on her shirt after breakfast.  She was so excited for her first day.  Last night in bed she would not calm down and stop talking.  "What was your first day like Hattie?  Was it really exciting or boring? Yeah! I get to ride the bus home. I can't believe it's my first day of school.  I'm just so excited!  "  We were all saying "Hailey, go to sleep!" Then at 10:00 last night I walked into their room and both girls sat straight up.  "Is it time to get up?" Not quite yet.  Then at 10:30 pm Hailey came down stairs rubbing her eyes and said "Mom!  I was up all night!"  Well, the night hasn't really started yet, so go back to bed.  "How many more minutes til morning?"  Alot.  As I came upstairs at 11:00 I could still hear her in her bed...
"This is taking forever.  It's never going to be morning."
Well morning finally came and Hailey is now off on her first day of school! Hailey was very adamant that she did not want Hattie to walk her to her class. She wanted to go by herself.   Eric dropped the girls off for school and then came back and got Leif (He drops him off on his way to work).  Leif excitedly waved to me through the window as they drove away.   
Now for a few hours I'm alone.  Really weird.  A teensy bit sad, but not really.  I have time to  update my blog.

What an exciting day! Wish I could be there when they all get home this afternoon.

I can not believe how they have grown. I wish I were there to hear about their day! And two mornings a week alone! hmm, my blog is so far behind.... Somehow when they are small, it seems as if you never will get there. But it flies by so quickly.
