{first day of school breakfast and an "I love you" for the photographer :) }

I am loving the kid's schedule this year...Bennett is in Pre K 4, five days a week half day and Emory and Jacob are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 9-1.  Its perfect - after coming in to town late on Sunday's I only have to get one child ready for school and can spend Monday at home unpacking and laundry and making a grocery list.  {Also as my mom reminded me all school holidays seem to be on Mondays so this way we never miss a day! ha!}. And then whatever I don't get done on Tuesday I can do on Wednesday.  Thursday is a fun day with my two littles, and then I have Friday to get ready to leave town if that happens to be the case.  It's wonderful.

Even though we are a few weeks in, I am still on the fence with sending Jacob three days.  I know I need to with work right now but I miss my little babe.  He still takes two naps a day and going to school three days a week means that three days a week he doesn't get that first nap.  Of couorse it doesn't seem to affect his laid back self in the least and he takes a killer afternoon nap while Emory naps too.  That is quite nice :)

Emory has the cutest teacher and I love her coming home with projects and seeing everything they did everyday written on the board outside their classroom.  She still seems like such the baby to me {compared to everyone in her class} and her birthday being at the end of September means that next year all her little friends will be moving on to PreK 3 and she will stay back in 2 yr old Mothers Day Out.  :( I'm a little sad about that but hopefully she won't know anything different and enjoy being the oldest in her class for a change {??}

Bennett is having a blast and was so ready to go five days a week.  His teacher is amazing {she was his enrichment teacher last year and is everything you would think a pre-k teacher should be: bubbly and warm and excited and loving and personable}.  He is looking so old to me these days and so skinny.  I can still catch glimpses of his toddler belly every now and then but honestly he is all legs and arms and not as "compact".  He also looks a lot like his daddy {insert smiley blowing a kiss}

We've been cheering on our "war eagle hey" team every weekend but it hasn't really helped the Auburn cause.  We are not fair-weather-fans though and anyone who went to that school knows why!  Being an Auburn fan/graduate is one of my proudest accomplishments! :) War Eagle! :)

{Emory wasn't in the smiley-est mood possibly because she was so serious about 
getting to hold her cousin.  Sweet little momma}
