Off to School...

Well, today was the big day. The first day of school. I only shed a little tear... oh, the boys? They did great. They were excited!

They wanted cereal and cinnamon rolls for breakfast. They were sooooo excited to wear their new shoes. They were slightly perplexed as to why they were taking an empty backpack to school (the PTO is great and provides all of their supplies!). But I kept a very positive attitude, because Deklyn doesn't get too excited about change. So, things went very well.

Caden, on the other hand, keeps trying to argue with me... Next, I expect him to start arguing with Koen. But I've been trying to keep him busy with "Preschool". We made play dough this morning (see recipe below), and it turned out very well!

Caden helped mix ingredients. We counted out cups, teaspoons, how many times we stirred ( repeating 1-20, over and over & over! Not bad for a 3 1/2 year old.)

So he played with that for a while...

Then he got bored and whiny...

So, here we are just waiting... for boys to come home and the excitement to begin.
