first day, new day!

Oh gosh, what a day, what a day! This is how my first day of being in this house with my own self went today…… Woke up about 3:30 praying that my baby would be fine on his first day as a kinder, but more than that, praying for my day. It’s like, my role, or my job, is changed and I’m not sure where I fit in. So, a little scared of this whole thing! Got the kids up with a smile and a song, “Rise and Shine for the Glory of the Lord is upon you!” (they have heard it every day since they were born and hate it but love it, you know one of those things you just deal with as a kid that your Mom does annoyingly?) Made breakfast, and got the camera out and took a picture of my 3rd grader and my kinder on their first day of school. As I’m pointing the camera at Jordan I say, “What do you have to say to Momma on your first day of school?” He says, “I will miss you Mom”…..ok, ok, doesn’t this warrant a little break down, doesn’t it? I can’t see him anymore because of my blurry eyes so Brayden takes over. Ok, so SUCK IT UP, SUCK IT UP, that is what is going thru my head as I drive him to school. We meet out by the flag pole with his teacher (who is my dear friend, thank GOD!) We already had a deal, I wouldn’t look her in the eye and she wouldn’t look me in the eye. I did fine, we walked to my babes class room and the lump was beginning to form, I began to panic, and out the door I went. I got in my car and went for an 8 mile run, the whole time telling Him, “do what you want with me, I’m yours!” I got me a yummy ice tea, my sweet Amy called to make sure I was ok and remembered going thru this herself,headed home, took a shower, played with the pups, made some Mocha brownies, salmon fettuccine to put in the oven for dinner, biskets, and corn on the cob all ready to go. Did a little laundry, and oh my gosh, it was time to get them at the bus stop. WHERE DID THE TIME GO! It was a busy day and I am exhausted! Jordan, he had a super day as well. I think it’s going to be an adjustment for this Momma, it was so quiet, so productive. I never stopped alllllll day for anything but the task at hand. That was a good feeling. Jim called me a couple of times and tenderly laughed at me as I dropped tears. It was sweet, he knew I was going to have it rough today. Tomorrow another day spent with Me and the Lord and quite a few appointments in the salon

Look at him, did you notice he got a new hair cut too?

Boys ready for a big new day!

Yah, in black and white, can’t see the blotchy red face this way, hahahahaa!

Off the bus we go!

Casey Martinez - You are such a productive momma! Man, an 8 mile run!! I truly cannotimagine that but, my body could really use that. hehe. I honestly understand your emotions with your little one starting school so well. Just thinking about my baby starting school grieves my heart but, also makes me proud. It’s such a mix of emotions and I’m not even there yet! hahaha Praying for you in this new season!

Jenay - Oh Esh!!! You did sooooo good. It’s quite an adjustment, but you will find this time and these ages need you even more…just in a different way. Maybe that’s why we get a break in the day…God knows we need to be in our right mind and close to Him when the issues arise…. Love ya sister, you are doing amazing and you have some precious boys that are going to love school and be loved!
