Kindergarten 101

We went to kindergarten 101 last night at Ty's school and it was awesome!!! There were 5 kindergarten teachers there and they went over things we could do with Ty to get him prepared for school this August. They also gave us a nice packet of things we could use with him, plus a really cute book! I really liked meeting all the teachers....and they were all SO nice! They also talked about the staggered start days for the kindergarten class.......the first week of school, Ty will go one day. The second week, he'll once again go one day. Both of those days he will go from 7:45-10. Then the third week would be his official start, which I think will end up being August 31st?!? They said they will mail out a letter the end of July telling us who his teacher will be, what days he will go the first two weeks, and what supplies he will need. They also went over dropping off and picking up the kids. Since kindergarten hours are different than the other grades, the only way they can ride a school bus home is if they go to an after school "daycare" until the other grades dismiss. I'd much rather take Ty to and from school anyway so he won't have to wait around to come home.

I really can't believe my big boy will be starting school soon!! :)

Busy day!!

Well, not only is today our anniversary, but it's going to be super busy!! We have a doctor appointment with the OB at 2:30, then we have to come home and have dinner, then be at Ty's school by 6pm for kindergarten 101. He is SO excited about going to his school again!! It's just basically a bunch of kindy teachers talking about how we can better prepare Ty for school this August, plus they are offering free refreshments and a free book for Ty! I still can't believe my "baby" will be starting school this year. I remember thinking when he was only 2 or 3 years old that we had tons of time before he started school, and now the time is already here. :( It's hard to think about letting him go to school, so I can only imagine how rough it will be when Chase starts school in 5 years!!!!

8 years ago today......

Z and I said "I do"! It's so hard to believe we've been married for 8 years. It hasn't been an easy 8 years, that's for sure! But for the most part I wouldn't trade him for anyone......

Happy Mothers Day!

I hope all you mama's out there have a great Mothers Day today! Tyler got me a super cute card and some beautiful carnations this morning....I cried when he handed them to me! I'll have to get a pic of them to share. I also got a text from my girlfriend in MD and from my niece wishing me a happy mothers day...SO SWEET!!!! I was seriously dreading this day since mom passed away. The day she passed, I immediately thought about all the holidays I wouldn't get to share with her anymore, and Mothers Day hurt the most. When Z and I bought mothers day cards last week, it felt so wrong not getting mom a card to mail. I'm hoping for mothers day next year we'll have the extra money to go to MD so I can visit moms grave. I miss her so much......

On a lighter note, Z is cooking boneless pork ribs with some texas toast for dinner......the ribs are marinating as I type this!! Photobucket I made some iced tea to go with it.......nothing like JFG sweet tea to go with some super sloppy barbecue ribs!!!!!
