It’s official ! I have too many kids ! I forgot one. yes. I forgot to take a picture of one child on the first day of school.
Granted, that child is the one that abhors having his picture made. And had I actually MADE him do it, there would have been a fight. But I do feel horrible that I forgot – and the sad thing is that I didn’t realize that Nicholas’ picture is not in here until about 10 min ago when I was uploading them.
Ok, so here they are. The first day of school:
They say that they all had a wonderful first day. Schedules were not perfect for either of the girls BUT it is fixable. And unfortunately Samuel’s teachers husband had a severe car accident this morning and I fear she may be out for an extended time period (we are all praying for his quick recovery). I honestly can’t believe how well Samuel has done – the teachers had to pull him off of Ralph the first 3 months of pre-K. Jacob seemed to do just fine also …. there was a bit of concern since the elementary school is BRAND NEW and huge in comparison to the old school. Nicholas didn’t have any problems mostly because they did a 6th grade orientation that lasted 3 hours on Monday night. The kids went to each of their classes for 10 and then had hot dogs in the cafeteria. EXCELLENT IDEA. Sarah also had an orientation with a freshman picnic last week. I’m glad these schools are getting smarter.
Tonight we decided to take all the kids out for ice-cream (could have paid my water bill with the $$ !!!! ). And no, I didn’t leave anyone out this time, Sarah is babysitting, so we brought Caleb in her place. Notice that the love-birds are too “special” to sit with the rest of the family. LOL.
