Back to School!

Today the boys attended their first day of Mother's Day Out (MDO)/Preschool Enrichment Program at their new school. I have been anxiously awaiting the return of MDO. I hate to admit it but it's true. 5 hours of alone time is a true blessing!

They have a drop off line so that parents can just drop off their kids without having to get out of the car! So convenient. Of course you could walk your kids in if you'd like, but I opted not to do that because it would have been hard to pull Ian off of me at the door (been there....done that). Ms. Blanca (Ian's teacher) did say that there were a few tears at the beginning but he perked right up during circle time. Evan's teacher reported that he was also a good boy. Yippee, I'm raising him right after all!

So what did I do to take advantage of my alone time? First I cleaned house! Just enough to make it presentable in case a guest dropped by. Then I washed and folded a load of laundry, I paid bills online, I blogged, I read a book, and I took a nap. I know......a nap, I couldn't resist!

Here are some pictures for your enjoyment!

Backpacks and lunch bags are personalized so nobody gets confused!


All decked out!

Smile for the camera boys!

A picture from last year on their first day of MDO! Look at how little Ian looked!


  1. Did you use the same backpacks from last year or get new ones? I'm gonna be really proud if they are the ones from last year!

  2. Same ones from last year! It was hard because of all of the really cute ones I saw out there!

  3. Those boys are sooooo cute! I love the backpacks, too! Did you find them at lillianvernon.com?

  4. yep...the backpacks came from Lillian Vernon. They were so cheap,too

  5. I can't believe Ian is smiling in that picture! He looks like a different kiddo! He must REALLY love school!!!!
