Happy, happy Wednesday! Phew we are almost done with the first week of school! I say that knowing full well, that today is only the second day of school and I already can not wait for this weekend! It is tough getting a new schedule down! Yesterday we were ready earlier than needed, today I let the kids sleep in by ten minutes and it threw everything off! I also think that having oatmeal for breakfast was not that exciting. Ialso made the mistake of a late night last night! More on that later!
I do want to show you the fun of first days! In advance Emma has to leave almost an hour earlier than the kids and Mike, so poor Emma has a picture by herself! She leaves at 5:45 am! Amazing for a freshman!
She is beautiful! I am in shock that she is in high school! Where has the time gone! She started a new high school this year and so far is loving it! Emma said yesterday was the best first day! Emma a freshman! HOLY COW! She wants to be a marine Biologist and is super excited for soccer, volleyball and any other sport she can do!
Little Heston, is in third grade! He is so smart that he actually is skipping the second grade! AND his dad is his teacher this year! Mike said yesterday he gave the class a 100 math problems to gauge how well they know their math facts, Hestons was the first one in and they were all correct! Yay Heston! He also wants to play football, he has no back up plan! Haha!
Little Lucy is in first grade! WHoo hoo!! Lucy loves to learn and kindergarten was kind of hard for her! She worked really hard over the summer and is so excited to go to first grade! She loves to read, play princesses and help with Marsha. Lucy wants to be a mom when she gets older! I am so excited for her this year, I hope her confidence continues to grow!
And one with Daddy! His second year as a third grade teacher! Yay! Mike is seriously one of the best teachers out there. He is amazing and I am grateful for him! He will work till 10:30pm every night to make sure his class will succeed. I am grateful for him every single day.
That was our first day! How was yours? Busier than you thought? Mine sure was!
MESSY MOMENT! I decided to splurge and go to texas roadhouse. Kids eat for only.99 cents there! So I can feel all seven kids for under $7.00! You add in my meal, like a burger or something and I can feed our family out for under $17.00 before tip! That is amazing!! AND the kids night includes, a drink, ice cream and free face painting!
SCORE! Right! How much fun is that! We do not go out to eat very often…. I mean seriously even Mcdonalds would be like $50.00 so forget that! I decided to take everyone there! They had a blast! All the rolls they could eat, soda! and Ice Cream for dessert! Oh and some of them got their faces painted!
They used real paint………….. not face paint but I think like real paint………..
I could not get Lucy and Charli’s off……………. Tucker had a little bears sign, his is kinda noticeable. Heston was a lion so his face just looks slightly more orangy tan……….. Lucy and Charli were butterflies!
Poor Lucy’s face! Haha! Next time, I would just do a small little design just in case its not real face paint!
See you guys tomorrow! Hope you have a happy day! How was your first day????
