 Today was a big day around here. After careful consideration and much prayer, we decided to enroll Connor in the after-school program at his school. Up until today, he has always been with family or close family friends while I'm working. But we feel he needs a little more these days.

So today was his first day. And he was excited! I was nervous. I've been having a hard time with the idea that he's "at school" all day. But I keep reminding myself that it's only 3 days a week. And on Monday's, Bunga is going to pick him up early.
When Jeff picked him up today he was all excited and said that he had fun.
When I arrived home a few hours later and asked how his day had been, he replied,
 "Loooong! I missed you Mommy. I walked around for a while saying, 'Momma, Momma.'"
OK rip my heart out why don't you!
Nonetheless, we feel that he will adjust and really enjoy it. I pray.

Connor wasn't the only one in a new place.
Emma Kate went to daycare as well. It won't be on a regular basis but there are many times when we have parents out of town and we are scrambling for a place for the kids to go.
I had received a flyer on my doorstep almost a year ago and just tucked it away for a rainy day. Last week I called the lady (who owns an in-hone-daycare) and met with her immediately.
Emma Kate loved her home and lucky for us...she takes "Drop-In's" at a very affordable price!
I was "fine" until she started to scream as I left.
Then I called Rose for backup...or rather a pick me I wouldn't cry too.

We all made it through the day...some better than others!
(In other words...them better than me:)


  1. Awww! That is a very emotional couple of events and you had to do them in a row! No wonder you were on the verge of tears. But, it sounds like you found good fits for both of them.

  2. So hard! But they are gonna LOVE it!! Poor Momma!
