|Find comfort in Mama's bed|
After meeting Boogie's teacher, Boogie was ready to go next door to see his kindergarten teacher and give him a big hug. Even Buggy gave Boogie's kindergarten teacher a hug. It made starting first grade a lot less scary. However, on Sunday night, I did find Boogie fast asleep in my bed when I finally climbed the stairs much later in the evening. I guess he was more anxious than I realized. Hubby put him back in his bed and we prepared ourselves for having a first grader in the family.

It was a great day and Boogie had so much to share with us when he came home from school. I think this will be another wonderful year. Thanks, Mr. S. for choosing a good teacher for our Boogie Man.
We finished Boogie's first day of school with a dinner of his choice made by Mommy and a trip to our favorite ice cream stand for dessert.
Today was Buggy's very first day of preschool. She is in a 3's class and has the same teacher Boogie had when he was three. We love Mrs. E. and I love that she teaches that we make God #1 in our lives. Buggy was up one hour earlier than she had to be this morning. She was so excited to pull out her new book bag. Hubby took the day off so that I could go with Buggy to her class. Her school requires that a parent stay with the preschooler for the first day and they ask that siblings stay home. So Hubby took the day off and he and Bananas walked Boogie to school while Buggy and I went to her school. We started our morning with a yummy breakfast of caramel rolls and bacon and left in our separate directions. Buggy was a bit shy today, but advocated for herself twice when wanted more stickers to decorate her paper. I loved that when I couldn't give her more stickers, she politely asked her teacher who was handing out more. Buggy is excited to go again on Thursday and to go by herself. I think she will be just fine.

I'm a little nervous about how I'm going to juggle Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Boogie can be at school as early as 8:30 and Buggy needs to be at her school by 8:45. I think I'm going to have to put everyone in the car, drop off Boogie at the front of the school, keep on going and take Buggy to school. It will mean a lot of coordination and compliant children. It means that I will have to be on the ball and have everything ready each morning. It means I'll have to be realistic and know that Buggy may be late a few times because things happen. I'll have to cut myself a break when things don't go smoothly when we have very little wiggle room in our time frame.
I'm looking forward to the big kids starting on their new adventures and for some special one-on-one time with Mr. Bananas. It's going to be a good year!
