First Day of School

Both kids had a fabulous day back at school yesterday! Ethan is in first grade and Presley is in Full Time Kindergarten! They both have great teachers! I know it's going to be a great year for them!

When Pat and I picked up the kids from school yesterday this is what they said about their day!

Presley: "Mom, I have a new best friend!"
Me: "That's great Presley, what's her name?"
Presley: "I don't remember!"
ha, ha that's so cute!

Me: "Presley what was your favorite part of the day?"
Presley: "eating lunch!"
that girl is so funny!

So for Ethan's class the parents were supposed to write a paper about our children and write about their strengths and weaknesses. So as one of the weaknesses I wrote that Ethan tends to be shy in large groups or at school (I know if you know Ethan your wondering really?! But it's true! Ethan is shy in large groups!) So this is what he tells me when he gets home from school

Ethan: Mom you know that paper you wrote about me for Mrs Batten? I didn't give it to her.
Me: Why?
Ethan: Well I read it and I don't want you to tell her that I'm shy. You need to rewrite that paper!
Me: Um no! And you will give it to her tomorrow
So funny! Can't get anything past a kid that can now read! Guess if I want any privacy I will have to stick it in a envelope!!

But there was lots of good stuff on that paper too! Ethan really enjoys school and excels in reading and in Math! I can't wait to see how he and Presley grow this year! It's so exciting and I'm so glad that they love school!

As for me! Yesterday went really well! Pat worked from home so it didn't really hit me like today is! I keep checking the clock and it's not even 10:00 am. Sad! But I'm trying to get some stuff done around the house and it's a lot easier when you don't have 100 distractions! But I look forward to 3:00 and picking up the crazy kids!

The Circus has arrived at the Circus!

It's been a very busy weekend! We had Ethan's Birthday Saturday, Sunday we went to the circus with my sister and her family! It was my sister and my kid's first time! I think that they thoroughly enjoyed it! I mean come on how cool is it to see a elephant do a hand stand???!!! Several times during the performances of the acrobats Ethan would say, "I can't watch, that looks to scary!" But he did! Well this are last Hurrah of the Summer! It's so hard to believe that the kids go back to school tomorrow!
