With Connor now in school (all day long,) things have changed just a bit around here! Before, I was okay with the kids hanging out in their jammies for a little while. Breakfast wasn't served immediately after waking up. Lets just say that things were well, pretty layed back around our house.
There is a new system around here! Our mornings begin around 7:00. The boys wake up and we head down for breakfast. Afterwards, we get dressed and brush teeth. We pack up the back pack and we head out around 8:15. As I mentioned before, the school is just around the corner. So, I get the stroller and load up Kate and Carson. When we get to school, things are pretty chaotic. Kids are everywhere! Today was the third day, so things seemed to be a bit more mellow in the morning.
Although, our venture takes place before 8:30, we come home sweaty and a needing a tall glass of cold water. Yes, it is still hotter than ever here. What should be a nice morning stoll, ends up feeling like death sentence! When we return home, it seems a little strange without Connor buzzing around. Carson is still a bit concerned as to when he will return.
However, Carson has taken full advantage of daddy's time! He has had a great time doing whatever he wants to do with dad. They have gone swimming and played lots of their "made up games" together.
After cleaning my house up, (which I am amazed how much easier I can get things done with one less kid around,) it is nearly time to walk back to get Connor. At 3:15, things are a lot more chaotic at the school. Each day, they have had a different system as to how they want us to pick up our kindergartener. I suppose in another week or so, we will get the hang of this stuff!
The evening consists of dinner time, bath time, jammy time, story time, and at 8:00, bedtime. Then before I know it, the fun starts all over again!
All in all, it has been a pretty good week. Connor seemed a lot overwhelmed the first day and has seemed a little better with each new day. Today he acted much more excited and eager to tell me how his day was.
Here are some pics of what our days were like this week:
Because Kelly works the swing shift, he is gone when Connor gets home from school. Connor gets to see daddy for about 1 hour before school. If he gets ready in time, he can play the Wii with him for a few minutes. Here they are with their game faces on!
Good morning Katydid!
Kelly was sitting at the computer and Carson literally climbed in his lap! He crawled under his shirt and stuck his arms, legs, and head out. They of course had to make a game out of it and become "the shirt monsters."
Here is just a cute picture of Kate. She is getting too big!
My cute and crazy Carson!
Mommy and Katelyn!
