First Day of School and Work!

Today was the day! The kids and I started back to school/work full time! I have been saying so many prayers just to remove my anxiety about starting full time and for the kids to really thrive and develop at school. It was a little bumpy this morning which is to be expected, the 6 am alarm was a shock to every one's system :) The kids were pretty sad when I dropped them off to say the least but I think once we all get into a routine things will get a lot better!!

I must say I have the BEST husband. Our time together has been sparse with this recovery process and for the first time in about 2 weeks Palmer slept in his own bed and we FINALLY got some time together to just sit and talk and watch TV and it was SO great! We need that for ourselves and our sanity.

When we went to bed last night a piece of scrapbook paper was laying on my pillow and I tried desperately to scan it in because it was so cute but this is what it said in Tex's handwriting...
Mom, We wanted to let you know that you don't have to worry about us, we are so excited about going back to school. We love learning about new and exciting things. We will watch out for one another so you don't have to worry about us. We love you so much, hope your day is as fun as ours. Love, Ann Mason and Palmer

First Day Back to School


I just bawled my eyes out, he dressed the kids all up and put on their backpacks and they posed for the camera and then they went to walgreens to print out the picture! I asked Palmer today if this was his first day of school picture and he said, "No, mom dad made us take fake pictures!" I just laughed he is always SO honest!
I have an awesome husband and two beautiful healthy children that I love more than anything in this world and I know this transition will be hard but we can make it thru!!
