I was up at 5:30.  Dressed, showered, packed lunches, laid out clothes and waited while the children still slept in their beds.  Jude woke up and was of course, too excited to eat very much.  I managed to get him to eat a half of a banana and a few bites of toast.  He was dressed, hair perfectly combed, teeth brushed, shoes on, bag packed… a full hour before school would begin.  So he paced and waited.

Finally we went outside and took a few pictures.

I love those boys!

My good lookin’ guys

Mrs. Boone was there to greet him when he walked in the door.  We found his desk and his cubbie box.

Grandparents, cousins, and friends all came up to show their support and love.  Grandpa and Grandma W. were there too, but I didn’t get a picture of them with Jude.  I never got a picture of Jude and I on his first day of school either!

New friends were already being made.

Mrs. Boone and her students: past and present… once again life goes full circle.

We loved on them, prayed over them, and then we left them; bright and eager ready for this new adventure.

    I can’t wait to hear about Jack and Sailor’s first day!  They look so pleased with their backpacks.  I ran around all day on Wed., drop younger kids of with Grammy, volunteer at school, pick up kids again, head to swim lessons and get home just in time to make dinner.  Suddenly I thought, I know what Ali was talking about… I’m a “real” mom now
