Another First

Maggie and Cash, finally had their first day of school! Yay!!!! It was a great morning and a great first school day for everyone! They were both SO excited to go. Maggie, of course, was an old pro and walked the halls like she was the BIG kid on campus! Cash, just trotted right along side of her like he had been doing it for years. I love that they are in school together...if only for a year.

Maggie's first day of school - 2009

and, this year - 2010

We took Cash to his class first. He is going only one day a week for MDO. When we were walking down the hall, we could hear all the other babies SCREAMING in his class. I just knew that we were going to have a melt down by Cash, and they were going to have to pry him off of me. Nope! Not a bit! He walked in smiling ear to ear and handed me his backpack. He walked straight to the books, sat down, and just looked at me and waved. I couldn't believe it! So, I didn't get any pictures of him in his class, because I didn't want to press my luck by staying too long. I guess it has paid off with him staying with sitters all the time and being in the church nursery since he was a newborn. So thankful for such a great morning!

As always, Maggie, did awesome! This is her last year of preschool! She loves being in the 4 year old class with Ms. Charlotte. She has a lot of friends in her class from last year and ran right in and never even said bye to us. Her teacher asked her if she wanted to, and she just kind of shrugged her shoulders and giggled. Ha! That's our little, Miss Independent! Love this about all my kids!

So, this momma was going to be kidless for the first time in 2 years! What did I do with my 5 hrs. of complete freedom? Well, lucky me, got to sit in an 85 degree house, waiting for the AC dude to show up. Yep! Our AC broke in the middle of the night while we were all sleeping. Awesome! Oh, well. At least it was a quiet, hot house. :) We spent the night with my parents last night and are currently still here. Conn just called and said that it is now fixed and we are good to go!

Hope you all are having a great Thursday!
Talk with you soon!

Sam started MDO one day a week this year too. It's such a blessing. It's amazing how easily the third child transitions to school. He's such a cutie pie!

So was Maggie in school yesterday?? We almost called for a playdate but heard through the grapevine she had started school.

They look adorable. I love cash with his backpack and am so glad he did so well. I am hoping and praying Hadley surprises me on the first day next WEdnesday. We'll see.

Hope you guys have a great long weekend!

I loved seeing the pictures of the two younger siblings' first day at school My but they have changed in one short year. They are so grown up now. I love them all more than words can tell.
Love, Nanny
