Laurens Off To Kindergarten

Lauren started Kindergarten this year and I had so many mixed fillings, as most Mom's do. I just wished I could go right in there with her and do everything !!! I was so nervous for her !!!  ( she has been my baby for the past 5 years )
 She on the other hand was SO excited to go to "big kid" school, she suddenly became miss independent    and did not want me to do anything for her.
    Lauren has a great teacher and is at the BEST school in Omaha ( I think) .
     We are so blessed to have a save and loving environment for our children to learn & grow.
and she's off....

First Day of School 2011

All 3 of my kids headed of to school this year. It was bitter sweet for me, Lauren started kindergarten Claire 4th grade and Winston 2nd. I used to think Mom's with kids in school were OLD, so now I see just how old I really am. The only thing that helped hold back SOME tears was a tiny little boy named Clark, I still have 1 at home :)

Grandma to the rescue

My Mom came out for 3 weeks to help with the kids and baby...... thank goodness ! I would have not made it without her ! she is the Best. I did NO cleaning , laundry , cooked any meals or took the kids to school or got them ready for school mom did it ALL ... oh it was SO nice. She even got Clark on a schedule, she really is super nanny Grandma :) I love my mother so very much for coming to help. There's nothing else like a mother's love ! love you Mom !!

Grandma gave Clark his first bath( as she has with all my children).The kids were very much involved and wanted to help !

So sweet ....I think my Mom was just as tired as Clark ... I on the other hand was very rested thanks to her & was SO sad to see her leave ! I was now on my own :(

Welcome Home Clark

After a few days at the hospital I'm SO ready to come home and sleep in my own bed ! The staff and nurse were awesome but I like to have baby all to myself ! The kids were so excited to bring Clark home they wanted to show him around the house. It's been so fun to watch the kids with there new brother, it's been a while since we had a baby at home ( 5 years ) . The excitement in our home is crazy but I would not have it any other way .
