First Day of School ~ Success!

It finally happened.  My babies went to kindergarten this week...and we all survived!  In a quick change of plans, we were told that the twins could not attend the out-of-area school we had applied for due to class sizes.  Since our neighborhood school was not an option for us, we decided to send them to a local private school.  Much of this week has been devoted to getting them enrolled.  Yesterday was their first day and it was quite a rough day for Mommy. I tried to be brave, but as my babies walked right into their new classroom, giving their Daddy and me hugs and kisses and then pretended not to need us, I lost it. Sweet Hubby stayed home from work to help me through the day.
My little Princess who was so nervous decided that she likes kindergarten after all and she was amazed that she has made friends already.  I had no doubts that my little social butterfly would have friends but I was still worried about her.  She said her favorite part of the day was P.E.  Prince said that his favorite part of the day was recess.  He is crazy about the playground they have at his new school. 
There's something about walking into this Christian environment, where the teachers are telling students to "have a blessed day" and each classroom has kid praise and worship music playing to get ready for the day.  I'm so glad that God opened this door for us.  I feel that He has led us to what is best for our children for this year. 
It was easier to leave them this morning, but it feels so strange not to have my little shadows with me all day.  When I left work this afternoon, I had a bit of time before having to pick them up.  The house had this strange quiet.  I guess I'll get used to it, but it's weird for me now. 


  1. Aaah first day of school is so amazing for them and so hard for us. I still get sad when they walk into the their new classes, schools, future. They both still kiss me bye and are happy to see me at the end of the day, but that will probably change soon. Mine start 4th and 6th on the 30th.

    The good news for you is that things stay done around the house longer. LOL

  2. Happy First Day!
