First Day of School in Tyler

So, today i took all my kids to school for the first time!
(i know this pic is blurry, but they look so happy!)
i tried to get a group shot but it never really worked...

of course, i dont have the backpacks i ordered, and my mom ordered their nap mats and they arent in yet. so, we just had an array of sleeping bags, random backpacks and lunchboxes. it was kinda a lot of crap...

we defied gravity (with jazz hands from all three) in the car and told ourselves it was time to "close our eyes and leap"
then, against all odds, we got there early! and had to sit out in the church where its held and eat snacks because they didnt open yet.

and then off they went.
aves didnt even have time to say goodbye because she was so excited.
i left bens sleeping bag in the hall of the church and had to go find it while he and sass played in their room. i didnt label any of their stuff; i didnt tell her teacher that we call her sassy and they have never been away from me this long...they were ok when i left, but i dont know...
it makes me so nervous and anxious and im just praying for them all day. that they will be able to find somebody to love. and somebody who loves them. and will trust God when its hard.
i know that this is the time when they will maybe not want to go on thursday, and will probably figure out whats going on and not be excited about school for a few months. maybe not. maybe they will love it...i hope so. aves had a hard time for about a year, but now she loves it. ben will probably never know im gone and will only just be glad hes surrounded by dinosaurs and cars. sass will not like to be told what to do and will quickly realize she is not the one in control. hopefully her teacher will guide her through those melt downs where she throws her body on the floor (i guess im not that sad im missing this...). oh preschool. you are a whirlwind of emotions.
im sure when i pick them up, and asking them 100 questions about their day, they will want to do a lot of this,

maybe we will listen to "don't stop believing in the car" and get some ice cream to get ready for the rest of the year...

I have been thinking about you all day and have (on your behalf) been a whirlwind of emotions. I wish I had seen this post earlier, but I am glad to know that the day was a HUGE success. Congrats to getting to school early, picking them up early and receiving a "no tears, all smiles" report. Your kids are angels!
