We had flooding from all the storms here, tornado warnings, more flooding. Hubby whipped up a solution to the problem with our basement and we have had no more water coming in the house, Praise God! I am still recovering from an emotionally draining day yesterday. It's not something I feel like blogging about, but some of you can probably tell I am just not myself lately. I should have been focusing on Carter starting his very first day of kindergarten, but my day was just cloudy. I am glad it is over and today is a brand new day.
Carter wanted to have lunch immediately after breakfast today because he goes to Kindergarten right after lunch. He is made for school. Last night at Back To School night, Carter's teacher told us "He sure is a wealth of knowledge with wonderful information!" She said it quite delighted. I told her I almost sent a note in his backpack to warn her of that. He is one of a kind.
He couldn't get on the bus fast enough when it came yesterday, so I didn't get a good picture. I decided to drive to the school so that I could capture him getting off the bus to go into class. This picture just makes me happy. He didn't even stop to say hi- ran right into class. He saw his name immediately, sat in his seat, and started on his work. It was his very first day but he looked like a pro. I know that much of the behavior that our children exhibit is learned from the parents, but I do think that I am learning something new about myself because of them every day.
I've also felt frustrated lately because I am not able to read everyone's blogs as I'd like, and comment, and participate in more of your fun memes and contests and such. I try as much as I can, but often I'll get a moment to sit at the computer and then realize that the playroom really needs to be vacuumed. And on the way to get the vacuum I notice the dishes in the sink. So I get those things done and then have something else to tend to. And lately by evening, I am just too tired to even think about turning on the computer. Then when I do get a chance to catch up, I see that I've missed you having your baby last week, or you having a really fun contest, or you just making a really good point about life. I hate missing out on these things!
I think learning to keep a balance between my real life and my blog life is a constant process. But, I do ask that if you have something big and important that you've just posted about or that is going on in your lives, please email me or comment here to let me know. I hate missing out!
So, to end this on an up... I get a girls night out tonight. My neighbor is having a jewelry party and it will be nice to get out- even if it is just next door.
