We decided it was going to be a low key kind of day. I let the kids watch a few episodes of Scooby Doo in the morning while they ate breakfast. Then it was off for a nice walk in the woods. Pierson really wanted to take his guitar. Of course if you take your guitar you need your microphone. And what great American citizen doesn't take your flag with you.
"We leab it herew and we get it on de way back."
played with dead bugs.
and crashed hard.
We had a wonderful afternoon. Wednesday evenings are usually our bible study night. Mom keeps the kids while we go. However since it was the first day of school we wanted to be able to tuck the kids in bed. So bible study came to us. (we have such awesomely wonderful friends)
The kids swam some more and then we headed for bed.
Pierson went to bed THRILLED and wrestles. He was excited about riding the bus by himself (Maylin has staggered start time for kindergarten and wouldn't be riding the bus).
Maylin snuggled with me nose to nose. As she was falling asleep I whispered, "You are going to Kindergarten tomorrow!"
She teared up and said in the quietest whimper, "I want you go wiff me". Pull out my heart! I can't describe how that makes this Mommy's heart break! I silently cried so as not to alarm her. This little spirit has finally learned to trust me and now when she wants/needs me the most I have to push her out the door and abandon her all over again.
Yes I know that is a little drastic but it is how I felt. She has such a hard time trusting people and has a past which taught her to defend herself. Now she wants me to take care of her and defend her but...
Anyone interested in a Home Schooling commune? : )
Here is to hoping the next day goes a little better.
