School started again this week. Railey is in the 3rd grade this year. Mrs. Delna Bliss is her teacher. She started back on Wednesday. She was happy to go back. She really likes her teacher. She came home so excited about her new class, and she was happy to see her friends from school. I am so glad she enjoys school. I can only hope that continues.
The boys started preschool this year. I can't believe my babies are old enough to go to school. They were so excited they could hardly stand it. They were excited to ride the bus. All 4 kids get on the same bus at 7:30. And I thought that getting everyone ready for church by 9:00 was hard. Guess that will be easy now. As soon as the bus came to a stop at our bus stop, the boys just took off and got on. They didn't even hardly tell me goodbye. I thought I would melt and cry when they left but I DID NOT CRY!! They think they are so grown up now. I told them I would follow the bus the first day to make sure they made it and then I could walk them to their classrooms. When we got to the classrooms they headed right in and started playing. So I left and had a few hours to myself. A FEW HOURS TO MYSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was really strange and quiet. But I don't think it will take me long to get used to. The preschool/kindergarten bus drops them off right in front of our house so I don't even have to go to the bus stop. They had a great day and are very happy to be big school boys. They LOVE that they each have their own backpack. They had all kinds of things to tell me about their day. It was really cute. Our babies are growing up!!
