I didn't even cry...

when I dropped him off for his very first day of Kindergarten this morning. I can't believe my "baby" is big enough to go to school. He loved it, but he came home really tired! He told me that he couldn't tell me all about his day since "way too much happened." But I did get that recess was fun - he played pirates.

We signed Gracie up for dance classes that start tomorrow. She got her new ballet shoes today and can hardly wait to wear them. Dallin is going to a tumbling class tonight at the same studio to see if that's what he wants to try this year. He had his heart set on karate, but we'll see about that.

Here's a couple more photos from this morning. I took a couple after school, but they're still sitting on my camera.

It's About Time

I updated this silly thing. I had great intentions in the beginning but that was before summer hit. I had no idea how crazy my life would become.

DS will be starting Kindergarten in a couple of weeks and it hit me that this summer may be the last time he'll really be exctited about spending time with his mom. Hopefully I'm wrong, but you never know. Anyway, I was determined to make time to have FUN with him before he heads off to school. We've been having a BLAST, but boy am I tired!

Last week was our county fair. This was the first year the kids have really cared about any of the events going on. DH went to scout camp during the week, so I was flying solo with the 2 kids to some of the events. We did the movie night, the exhibits, the carnival, the live entertainment. Last, but not least was the parade. DD was so funny pointing at everything as it passed and waving her little heart out to all the princesses and queens riding on the floats. (I think I'm in big trouble!) Of course they walked away with a huge haul of candy and tummy aches, but it was worth it. It's funny how having kids makes all the little things in life fun and exciting all over again. We had fun, but I tell ya, I was completely exhausted by the end of the week.

Then come Sunday, it was my week to teach the lesson in Relief Society. I know it's shocking, but I actually prepared in advance this time. (I usually procrastinate it until Saturday night.) I didn't want the kids to miss out on the fair while I was home preparing a lesson last-minute, so I started early this time. I even digiscrapped some handouts, which turned out so cute. I was glad I had prepared well, since the stake leaders showed up unannounced. I was a little nervous to see them, but it all turned out OK.

I'm setting a goal to start blogging at least once a week...wish me luck!
