Back to School

Dallas and Will weren't the only ones that started back to school this fall- I did, too! Though, not in the way you might expect. I am an Assistant Teacher at Hands On Preschool- the very preschool Will is attending. Yesterday was our first day and we had a ball.
Annie had a play date with her friend Tobin Thomas while Will and I went to school. She was such a trooper! Before I dropped her off she said, "I'm not going to cry Mom. I'll have fun with Tobin and Audra." She's such a big girl! I've never had to leave a child to work, and yesterday was kind of hard for me. I was grateful to be with Will, but I missed my sweet Annie. It will be good for both of us to have our own activities.
Will has become very opinionated about how he looks and what he wears of late. He insisted, much to my dismay, on buying a Lightning McQueen shirt for school, and he wouldn't go to school unless his hair was in a mohawk. I'm learning to let go. He's big enough that he should be able to make some of those little decisions for himself. I remember when I was in kindergarten and my Mom wanted me to wear a puffy sleeved shirt. I hated it. And I never wore it unless she made me. I'm going to do my best not to do that to my kids ;).

Our schedules are now, officially, in full swing!

Will looks so studly! Tyler wanted to choose what he wore for the first day too. Imagine us having independent children?!

Glad school is going well for all of you. I can't believe your little man is going to be 5!!! He is so handsome. I really enjoyed seeing you and your little cuties last night.
