Reese's First Day at School

Reese had her first day of Mother's Day Out!  She went in to class just fine.  I peeked in on her when I was leaving and she was standing with the other kiddos... no tears!
When I went to pick her up she was still waking up from her nap.  She was all cuddled up on her nap mat so it seemed like she at least took a little nap.
Miss Terri said that Reese had a great day with just a few tears in the middle of the day.  Reese has never stayed away from me for that long (except for family) so I figured she would get a little sad.
I was very happy to get a hold of her :)  I missed her!
When we got home I was emptying her lunch box out.  Then I noticed that I left out her ice pack!!!  So my little girl had WARM cheese stick, turkey lunch meat, and strawberries!!!!  MOTHER OF THE YEAR!!!!  It didn't look like she ate any of the turkey-THANK GOODNESS!  But who can blame her-gross!  So I took out a Sharpie and wrote inside Reese's lunch box "PUT IN ICE PACK!".
I think Reese is going to really enjoy going to her little school.  They get to play on an awesome playground and go to music class!
She's ready to go!

Loading up!

She wanted to put her lunch box up herself :)

2nd Grade!!!!

Ben started 2nd grade!!!  I can't believe my baby boy is in 2nd grade.  It seems like yesterday that I took him to his first day of PreK.  Now it's 4 years later and he's sitting at a desk, bringing home homework, and wanting to be dropped off in the drop off line at school.
Ben is such a wonderful kid!  He's a good boy, well behaved, smart, and loving.  We are so proud of him!!!
Reese and I have been missing him during the day.  Reese was sad Ben's first day of school, and was SUPER excited to go pick Bubbie up from school!!!  I think picking up Ben from school is going to be her favorite part of the day!
I can't wait to see all the things Ben learns this year.  He is blessed with another wonderful teacher this year and I'm sure she has some great things planned for the class this year!

Love these 2 babies!

Ben and his best bud, Cameron!
