Summer's Over

The kids started back to school yesterday. Isaiah took it rough, he's going threw a separation anxiety stage (which he skipped as an infant so I guess he's making up for it)...I could see him trying very hard to hold back the tears. I was praying we didn't have another incidence like we did w/ camp, w/ the full blown meltdowns, and we didn' I was very proud of him. Xander was so excited he was awake by 3am! So far we're off to a great start. We won't know until sept 2nd if Xander will be invited into all day kindergarten. More than 1/2 the kids will be invited, so I think his odds are pretty good. I really hope so because I get next to no sleep right now! I get off work, unwind and go to sleep around 3am...get up at 7 am w/ the kids, go back to bed about 9:30/10...and get up at 11 to get Xander to school, so if he went all day I could sleep from 10-1:30 which would make a HUGE difference for we'll see! Here's a few pics of the kiddos...

T-11 days and counting

11 more days till the kids are back in school...11 more days to get my house organized so we can have easy stress free days! I got the mud room turned back into a mudroom yesterday (as opposed to the catchall storage room it had become) Rob put up huge shoe wracks on one of the walls for me...everyone has their own wrack, it looks like a shoe store in there lol, but it's SOOOOOOOO wonderful to have ALL the shoes in one spot LOVE LOVE LOVE it! The back packs have spots, the lunch bags have's great. Got Tierra's room and closet organized, the boys room and closet is organized everything is organized and pretty much ready to I just need to get the house cleaned as it has become a pit w/ me doing so many projects...I've got 11 days (of which most I work) to get it done...times a ticking!

Tuesday Xander has his kindergarten testing to see if he'll get all day kindergarten or 1/2 day. I'm soooooooo praying he gets whole day, I feel like he needs it'll just make life so much easier w/ me working and all...I'll update when I know!

Summer is almost over

I can't believe how fast this summer is going!!! I have soooo much to do and so little time! I feel like I need to get the house totally organized before school starts. I've gotten tons done! I'm almost caught up on the laundry, and have gone threw all their clothes, and given away what won't fit. Their closets are organized, and ready for back to school shopping! I still need to get the mud room organized so I will have everything organized for shoes and back packs and coats galore! I've found it very difficult to balance, summer all this organization...there's just not enough time in the day! Which is why my blog has been unusally quiet lately! Hopefully once the kids are back to school, and my house is organized I will be back on more! I hope everyone is having a great summer!
