and there they go...

Monday... the boys went back to school.
Taylan started 2nd grade.
Kanyon started Kindergarten.
We all got up, got dressed and walked to school together...
even Jonyn, he was on my back.
We walked Kanyon into class...
... but Taylan decided that he could go into second grade for the first day by himself. My big kid.

I will miss them being home... but the slightly quiet-er time has been nice... I will say that this summer staying home with them has been a much easier, smoother, less stressful one than last year. They've been such great kids this summer and such big helpers. Maybe giving them responsibilities around the house helped with that. In order to maintain some household responsibilities, they are to do some sort of cleaning for 20 minutes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week. I'm also feeling like keeping some sort of schedule for ME is going to be much easier now that it's just me and the little one. Of course, we'll see how well that sticks once boy 4 decides to make his appearance.

Also?? I was able to read. during the day. in the living room while they were at school today. That hasn't happened all summer. Jonyn would bring his toys to where I was, climb up beside me and just play quietly. It was so nice. I ran my fingers through his hair while he played and I got engrossed in my book. That's what I call bliss.... knowing my big boys are having a great time, while my littlest snuggles close to me to play, and I get to read while playing with his hair. yep.... bliss.


ps... Daddy cut their hair the next day. It looks much better now. And they're happy they can now faux-hawk it! ;)
