first day rambling.

first day of the 2013/2014 school year is done.
never to be experienced again.

whew. :)
kids were a bit nervous.
rightfully so.
but they did great.
i think this was the best first day yet. as far as nerves were concerned.
everyone was in bed and sleeping by goal time, the night before.
which, let me tell you. with 5 kids. rarely happens in this household anyway.
~something~ always goes awry. :)

none of my children got teachers that i knew, or even recognized.
that was a downer.
makes it harder to know what to expect. for me anyway.

kaden was convinced his teacher was "playing nice" on meet the teacher day.
he is now convinced that she "really is nice...she wasn't just playing."
whew. :)
i am always amazed every year at the lack of familiarity of kids in my children's classrooms.
i guess with 8 classrooms per grade, they get mixed up a good bit.
and by the time 8th grade rolls around, that would be the time you would be mixed up with everyone.
and then, you know everyone.

i guess that gives me an opportunity to get to know as many kids as possible.
not that i would be taking notes, or scoping out for future dating relationships.

the motto at my house is: "not until college"
dating relationships are nothing but a distraction.
mommy knows this from personal experience.
so we are going to learn from her mistake, and by-pass boys/girls until college.
it will help you all to think more clearly. :)))

anyway...kaden is not with any of his good friends for any part of the day.
a great opportunity for him to make new friends. which he does pretty easily.
he is like his dad, in that regard.

kaycee did know a couple kids in her class.
which is always great. she is more shy at making friends.

campbell. well. she played at recess by herself.
i got a little bit sad about that, and started questioning her, and she said,
" took me like a week to make kindergarten friends"

well. okay then. why would i worry about it, if she is not worried about it. :))
she is delighted i am letting her stay for a full day of school this year.

thought i would start project get my house clean and organized today.

was running around all day.
did not here the quietness of my house at all. because i was hardly here. :)

will look for that tomorrow.
when project organization starts.

and i finish kaycee's room. :))
[painting has been done...but i "accidentally"  found a bedroom suite at reuzit over the weekend,
and just got it moved up's really heavy...]
