And So It Begins...

We made it through the first week of school relatively unscathed. This week will be the first full week for all of us. Peter and Drew were so tired this morning-not a good sign for a Monday! We also overslept. Michael jumped in our bed at 5 AM, and I moved to the couch because I had a sinus headache. Andy and Michael slept through the alarm (the TV turns on), and the older boys alarm didn't go off. I woke up at 6:40 with a start-I had a dream that I was taking the boys late to school. Dreams turning into reality, I guess. My poor boys had to rush, as did we, but we got to school on time!

Then Drew's teacher called at 9:40...He had shut the door on his little finger, and had a cut. He wanted his Mama to put the band-aid on! So, I traipsed back up to school, put the band-aid on, gave him a hug, and told him that a.) he would be able to do his work despite the injury, and b.) if the band-aid came off, Mrs. K would be able to put on another. He is so tired from the full-day kindergarten, soccer, and has horrible allergies right now. It makes me feel bad for my little guy!

So, I picked up after school, thankful that soccer practice was cancelled due to rain. Peter is doing his homework, and we are definitely back in the swing of things!

I am sure tomorrow will be a much better day for all of you.
Kiss Drew's finger for me. He will make it through all of this, I know.

Poor little man .... all day Kindergarten can be a little tough on the little ones, especially if they've been home all day with Mum.

Do they get to take an afternoon nap? When my kids started school in NZ, they had a 1/2 hour nap after lunch. They each had a little mat and a blanket. I remember doing the same thing as a kid.

In the Kindy class that I volunteer in once a week, we get the kids to put teir heads down for 15 minutes after lunch. Seems to rest them a bit and calm then down.
