I know many of you have
survived finished the first week of school with your children just as I have. For me it has been a bittersweet experience. My daughter is in Kindergarten-she's a big girl now! It's her first time going to school full day and it has meant that we both have a different schedule. What I do with the boys and my day has shifted and instead of leaving at 10:30 a.m. to pick her up (its a 30 minute walk for me or more) I now leave at 1:20 p.m.
I won't lie my body and my legs especially are still getting used to all this, as I push up two dreadful hills with a double stroller filled with big boys but I did it! I keep telling myself it will be good exercise for me and its good for the boys to get fresh air. But me legs are still cursing me out hehe
For those of you who have children or family who started school this year--Does it get easier as they get older? I won't lie-watching her grow up has been a little hard. I keep shaking my head in wonder that I have a five year old because I still remember her being inside of me.
My husband took this photo of her in front of our home. Please forgive the weeds on our lawn-we are masters as growing them LOL Ugh I defiantly do not have a green thumb! Anyhoo-I can't get over how my daughter is posing in this photo-such a little model. I think she has been watching mama practice hehe
It was taken on her very first day of school. One of many firsts. And I still have two more babies to go! I feel so proud of her though-not about what she does in particular but just because she IS. Do you know what I mean?
Growing up is hard to do! For us-for them-but it's these special moments-bittersweet and full of joy and wonder that make growing up a little sweeter and pulls our heartstrings.
