First Day of School 2014

As a stay at home mom, I love love love the first day of school. I am definitely not one of those moms that wishes she could be with all of her children all the time. Haha. The break from each other does us well.

This first day started like all the others we've had together. Rylee and Emma leave for the first day with their mom and it's just me and Tuesday at our house. Then in the afternoon, I get to pick up all the girls from their first day. It works out nice for both set of parents. We each get a piece of the first day.

Tuesday and Rylee no longer go to the same school, so there is one more stop for me on my days. Rylee started 9th grade at one of our local high schools. She didn't seem too excited about it when she got in the car after school. Luckily, it's gotten better every day since. Well, except for last Thursday maybe. She started PE. This girl has not had a real PE class in her life. It was a bit of a rude awakening. Haha. She'll survive and it will be good for her.

Emma Wade started 4th grade. She is happy and got the teacher that she had hoped for. Fourth grade looks like it's going to be more homework and more responsibility. I am so happy about that. I love picking her up and hearing about her day. She's still awesome at telling me all about her day. Not like the big girls who usually answer "fine" when I ask how their day was.

My Dolly, Tuesday, started 9th grade at WCA High School. The girls middle school expanded to high school for this year and I chose for Tuesday to attend. It's a lot of work and an accelerated pace. It's going to be very time consuming, but I know Tuesday can handle it. She says that school gets better and better each day. As a mom that expects a lot of her, I love hearing that.

Wade and I took the time to have our own little First Day of School celebration at one of my favorite places in the whole world.....Starbucks! Yay!

And then, the love of my life, finally went back to work. After his yearly one month summer vacation, he had surgery for a hernia. Poor guy. He really suffered during early recovery. Thank goodness for Norco! It was a lot of fun watching him on drugs. Haha. This was his second hernia surgery and he said this recovery period was easier than the first time. So, that's good. Finally, he's back at work and I got the best selfie on a court day. He know I love him in a suit. I call him "White Collar Wade" or "WCW" on those days. I drool. But, that's just me. (P.S. He's gonna be embarrassed when he see's that I posted this pic)

So, here I am, just me and Rosie hanging out and getting chores done.

I am looking forward to this school year. I'm looking forward to the Fall and the Winter and all the things that come with them. I've got big plans for the coming weeks. Stay tuned for that.
