First Day

Today was the first day of school for my kids. Alexys went back to public school after being home schooled for a year. I'll let her tell the story of her first day here. She tells it better. Devon started 4th grade! I still remember his first day of daycare (6 months old), pre-K graduation, Kindergarten and all the grades leading up to now. But still, where has the time gone. Literally I blinked and he is this young man I see before me. I woke up early and made the kids blueberry cheesecake muffins because...let's face it, I rock!! He ate his 3 muffins and then layed back in bed and watched a little t.v. After about 20 min. he got dressed. While I was getting Blake dressed I called in to him "Do you want me to drop you off up front or walk you to your class?" Clearly, this was a test. Also, I needed to know now if I was going to be heart broken and cry. That's how I roll! He responds with "I don't know, what ever you want mom." Really? ok? So as we get in the car and are pulling out of the drive way Devon says, "If it is ok with you, can you just drop me off up front?" And I sadly say "Ok, sounds good! you are getting so big." So I drive up to the front of the school to drop him off, I've done this a million times. I let him out, and says bye....and my eyes well up. I drive off so he doesn't see me. I want him to know that he is a big boy, but he will always be my baby. But I did good! No tears fell...progress!

After work I go and pick up the boys at daycare. Devon tells me all about his day. He has 3 teachers, he has a lot of old friends in his class and it's going to be a fun year.

I hope he still thinks it is fun thru his senior year lol.


  1. I don't know why it took me so long to find your blog - thanks for all your kind comments! Your family is beautiful and I look forward to following your journey!

  2. Devon is getting so grown up looking. His face has thinned out and he istarting to loose his babiness. He is still my baby.
