And so it begins.........

This week was kind of bittersweet for me. On Monday I took Sophie to school to sign her up for the bridges program. The bridges program is something our school has set up to for kindergarteners to help prepare them for the transition to school. We found out that she will be having the same teacher that Audrey had last year for first grade. She and Audrey thought this was completely hilarious. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday she went to school for half a day (our kindergarten is full day here) to get a taste of how things would be.
I snapped a picture of her before she left on Monday and all I can say is "Wow!" I cannot get over how much she has grown. She and Audrey now wear the same size in everything except shoes. As excited as I am to see her growing up I am having a really hard time dealing with it. I can't believe this is my baby! She did really well (and so did I. No tears. I swear) and had a great time. She was actually upset when she found out that she has to wait two more weeks for school to officially begin. Personally I'm kind of hoping the next two weeks go by very slowly.

My apologies......

I feel like I owe everyone a huge apology for my flakiness as of late. I realize that I haven't been a very good blogger this summer and I promise that I'll get back into the swing of things soon. Really. I promise. I've just been trying to spend as much time with the kids as I possibly can.
I think that it has finally sunk into my thick head that in a few extremely short weeks that all three of my children will be in school. Some days when my kids are in full tattle tale mode, destroying their bedrooms, tracking mud through the house, singing the "Mom I'm bored" song and in general driving me nuts it sounds like a really good thing. I can honestly say though that I'm not looking forward to it. When Kylie first started school it was bittersweet because she was my first child. I didn't panic though because I still had Audrey and Sophie at home. When Audrey started school again it was bittersweet, but I still had Sophie with me. Now in just three short weeks I have to take Sophie to school for her kindergarten orientation and I'm starting to go into full blown panic mode. Seriously. I have been lying in bed at night just wondering what in the world I'm going to do with myself. And yes, I do have some things that I'm looking forward to doing, but I have a funny feeling that I'll probably be turning the television on pbs kids or noggin just so things will feel 'normal'. So please just bear with me a little longer and hopefully things will get somewhat back to normal around here soon.
