First day of Kids Day Inn

Maddox's first day of Kids day Inn/Mom's day out was last Friday. As you can see he clearly does not want his picture taken for this momentous event. He has been talking about school and acted so excited to take his new Spiderman backpack and lunchbox that I was hoping he would have a good time. At Meet your teacher day the week before, he was excited to go play with the animals and color. I prepared his teacher for the worst, explaining that we still have a rough time dropping off for church on the weekends. Mrs. Downing had been Jackson's teacher at 2 and he absolutly loved her. She met Maddox at the door with open arms and luckily, no tears at all!!
After MAPS that morning I found it very strange leaving the church that day with only Ava in tow. Is this what it was like with only one child?? I had forgotten. This was a piece of cake. We went and picked up Jackson, had a fun lunch at Mcdonalds, some ice cream at Cold Stone and then back to pick up the goobley at 1:30.
Mrs Downing said there were some times with tears, but overall, he did ok. Hopefully next week and each week after will get better for my sweet strong-willed 2 year old and someday, close to the end of the school year, he may actully enjoy his time at KDI.

What an exciting day! You couldn't have a better teacher either, Mrs. Downing is awesome. I hope next year when Makenna is in KDI, she'll have her.

I'm glad you found your way to my new blog!!! Yes- I got Photoshop CS3 and I'm using some new actions with it. I'm still learning it but having fun!

Yeah, I can't believe I ever thought it was "hard" to go shopping with only one kid!! That seems like a piece of cake now!

I went shopping today with all 4 of mine by myself...and I forgot the stroller (what was I thinking...I should have just given up and gone home). As I was strapping everyone into the car for the 4th or 5th time, I thought to myself, "How am I going to do this with 5 kids???" Then I though, "Well, I WON'T! I'll just stay home or leave the 4 olders w/ Grandma!"
