Another first day of school is upon us. I have such mixed emotions about school starting...I'm one of those moms that actually enjoy having my kiddos at home so it makes me sad to have this quiet house to deal with again but it makes me happy to see the girls' excitement at getting to see their friends and the chance to learn and grow.
As per tradition, I fixed breakfast while the girls got dressed in their new 1st day of school outfits. Then we took some pictures, Brooke said "I am NOT holding that sign" but she did to make mom happy. :)
Then I watched as my 15 year old baby...yes she's still my baby, get into her car and drive away. Oh what knots that put into my stomach!!! We agreed beforehand that to keep this momma's nervousness in check that Brooke would call when she got to school to say "Here" and hang up...ya know anything more would be utter embarrassment for her :)
Lexy has been telling me for weeks that she would "allow" me to walk her in to school on her first day but when we got there this morning she asked if she could walk in by herself :( yep she's growing up too fast! Sweet thing kept saying "but I love you so much mommy" to make me feel better :)
So now I sit in a very quiet house (except for the TV that is only on for the noise) planning a special 1st day of school dinner (tacos) and dessert (brownies) while I wait for time to pick Lexy up!
