firsts

monday was the first day of school and the first day of 1st grade for esme'.

tuesday was the first day she rode the bus to school (that is her, climbing aboard!) and then back home. i was terrified that she would not be on the bus when it pulled up to our stop that afternoon. but she was. in fact as the bus was slowing to a stop in front of us she was calling out the window to me. she did it! she got on the right bus and made it home safe and sound. all is well.



and today was the first day that harper succumbed to the sleepy afternoons that a new early morning schedule brings and he napped. not for long, but he napped. it took me nearly an hour to get him to sleep, but he napped! and so did mama....

while you are here check out the celebrate autumn swap! there are still a couple days to join!

Boy can I relate! I'm finally letting go of my fear now that Kade has been on and off the bus two days in a row... safely! I also found time to read a little of a wonderful book I'd been trying to get to... Now there's a first!

Your pictures are beautiful, much like you Mama! ♥

He napped?! And on his own bed?! I'm so jealous! Mine napped but it had to be right next to me on MY bed.

Alora likes Kindegarten and Athena has preschool twice a week right now she has a cold so she fell asleep under the kitchen table tonight at first I was panicked couldn't find her looked under all the beds then I spotted her zonked under the table poor girl and I think she might be sharing her cold with mama.Hugs Darcy

Awww such a big boy! Esme is beautiful. Good luck to both of them this year.

E-Man is waiting until next year. I feared he just wasn't ready to be apart from Momma this year - and I'm being selfish wanting a year home alone with him all day before he starts. :)
