School is in session!

Our kids started school last week...

Coleman is a big first grader and couldn't wait to eat lunch at school and have more than one recess. Lucky boy :).

Liv is a big fourth grader and is excited to be participating in Service Club this year.

Both of them have great teachers and we are looking forward to a great year.

(I'd be lying if I said that I didn't breathe a big sigh of relief when they were both safely dropped off on the first day. So far though, my planned daily naps with Sophia haven't happened... I haven't started exercising yet... I still can't keep up on housework, laundry, blogging, or dishes... and we've already had a few stressful mornings, but we are going to find our groove soon and I'll accomplish so much, I just know it.)

**Were you excited for school to start?

I'm so glad to hear that you have stressful mornings, too. It's been nice for Brooke, Ellie and I to have some time to ourselves. I'm sure you'll get to everything on your "to-do" list soon! :)

I was so excited for school to start! So excited that I posted a Staples commercial on my blog, "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!" But, like you, I am still figuring out what to do with the time. All the projects and exercise are still piled up waiting for me. The days fly by and suddenly, before the laundry is done, it's time to pick up the kids again! But the routine is great.

Sadie is loving her preschool and Aspen and I haven't killed each other with the home schooling thing. Yet. I keep thinking that I am insane. Here I am pregnant and sick and I could have just had my little man home with me but I want her to catch up and love education. Maybe she will change her mind. Baby will be here April 1st. Then Hayden can start preschool and I will just have the baby home. I was thinking today about what it will be like when all the kids are at school. My sewing and craft room had better be done before that. (About four years from now. That is what happens with you marry a builder. It's like the shoe makers wife. Always the one with the holes in her shoes.) :)

Oh yeah, had a small freak out this week when Randy mentioned that we can bless the baby the same time that Aspen will be baptized. My mind can't quite wrap around that.

I hope you are able to get those naps. I am always pulled by all the things that need to get done, thinking I will lay down right after. Then left grumpy and sleepless. I never learn.
