Our first week of back to school-done! It wasn't without drama, let me tell you! My boy, he did fine. I love him so. My girl, my little kindergartener, she did fine...for the first two days. On the third day, she got off the bus, lip quivering and eyes watering, and melted into a sad little puddle when I wrapped my arms around her.
We both cried at the bus stop.
We cried while other moms and kids watched us. We cried while my second grader son watched in horror, begging us to start walking home. It could have been that it was 107 degrees outside or that he was embarrassed that his mom and sister were sobbing, I'm not sure.
Needless to say, by Friday morning, my girl was determined that she was not going back to school. No way!
"Mommy, you'll break my heart if you make me go back to school. I want to be with you."
Oh, help me! Homeschooling, here I come!
I managed to get her into the front doors of the school Friday morning, and right before we turned to go down the kindergarten hallway....meltdown city. Girlfriend was screaming, crying and jumping around like a lunatic. Oh mercy.
Her sweet teacher helped get her into the classroom and she was fine the rest of the day. She was fine, except for the disaster that involved forgetting to raise her hand when she really, really needed to go to the bathroom.
So! I'm planning especially easy and tasty dinners this week. We all need some comfort food.

Kitchen Closed-Out to Dinner
Everyone have a great week. Thanks for stopping by.
