Yesterday was the last day of having all three of my kiddos at home with me. Yes, I cried a lot! Actually I’m still crying over it. We spent the day packing his backpack and getting things ready for his first day of school. For lunch I surprised them all with a special treat…Mc Donald’s food. We had a picnic on the front porch like we normally do when they are cutting the fields or spreading “cow poop.” We even got lots of “pull the handle” action. I’m telling ya, that never gets old. I am really going to miss these days with all three at home with me. We even had a special treat of watching our last butterfly break out of its chrysalis. For some reason this monarch walked right into my little guys hands before it flew off. Then this morning my little guy was off to his first day of Kindergarten. He was so excited! Yes we did have a little debate over the socks, but in the end I just wanted him to be comfortable. So, knee-high socks with shorts it is. Drop-off was tough, but luckily I made it out of the classroom before I lost it. It sure is weird without him here…and very quiet. The girls have asked at least a dozen times where their brother is. I guess they miss him too. We are counting down the hours till we can pick him up and hear all about his first day.
