We've been at the same pre-school for the last three years.  All of my kids were loved so well there and the teachers lavished love and kindness on our family.

This picture is from the “muffins with mom” day this past May with my sweet Story.  I missed this the year before because I was working, and so this was a sweet day for me to be there with her at her preschool.

Yesterday we found out that Story was granted a spot at the same school where the boys attend, so that means that all four of my kids will be at the same school.  This is the first time ever for this!  I'm so excited for them and feel like I will for sure know all the teachers at this school by Story gets through 3rd grade.


This morning when I dropped the boys off they all told Story they would look for her at school and give her big hugs.  Story goes later in the day and only for 3 hours, so hopefully she will see them every once in a while around campus!

Story insisted that I paint her nails this morning and luckily we already had a great big navy bow to put in her hair to match her uniform!  How stinking cute is she in her “first day of school” picture that I took today on our porch.  Doesn't she just scream —I'm in charge  — when you look at her!  Love this little girl!

I'd be holding a little bit back if I didn't express to you my slight excitement over having 13 hours a week with no children. What will I do?  Everyone always says that, but I can think of about 874 things right now that I could do!
