I don't know if there is a 'blog anniversary' but if there is... Happy 1 Year Anniversary to... me One year ago today, I wrote and posted my first blog and since then... 97 blogs later I've found it to be an outlet, a fun way to communicate, a great way to discuss things, to tell stories, and to get feedback from people about all kinds of things... so I want to say thanks to everyone who has taken the time to ever read, write, respond, mention, etc... to me about it because I really appreciate it and more than that, I enjoy it, you all make me smile and laugh and love and it's amazing!
Well, I am feeling some better, and SOOOOOOOOOOO many thanks to all of you who left me 'get well' messages and run by hugs and kisses! I'm not 100% yet, but I'm getting better and I guess I can't complain about that right?
So my little guy started Kindergarten on Wednesday and... OMG!!! He is too cute! The kids are all so tiny and looking so cute with their backpacks on. It's kind of funny cause it's like you just know that if you even put anything in that backpack they are just gonna flop over backwards cause it's just too heavy for these little guys to carry.
Our kids get to eat breakfast at school, so on the first day we took them to school and I had my daughter, who is a big 6th grader this year, help her baby brother and watched as he carefully juggled his breakfast and paid for it and carried it to the table and then we watched as she helped him get situated and then after they were finished eating they walked out of the cafeteria and she waved goodbye to us and ran off to look for her friends, cause who needs us right? She's a big girl now and we're boring so...
We walked the little guy to his classroom and he hung his backpack on his hook outside and then we went to his red chair at the red table and he was coloring... Rich is asking me if I'm gonna cry, he sort of has this tactic he uses, I have figured out... See, he asks me before it happens in hopes to ward off the tears so he doesn't have to deal with it. He does it in movies, in emotional situations, etc... Anyway, so I honestly tell him that if my son cries, I will, but if he doesn't, I'll be fine. He didn't, I didn't, it was cool
So we left him there coloring and when I went to pick him up on the first day it was too cute watching him walk in line and I don't think he realized it was time to go home because he wasn't even looking for me, and when I did finally get to him and asked him how his day was, he said, "Good." I asked him the standard questions... What was your favorite part? The slide! He went down! Did you make a lot of friends? Yes! What are their names? I don't know.
So on day two, we just dropped the two of them off and this time when I went to pick him up, he was looking for me and when he saw me he ran over and I had to send him back to the line and wait for his teacher to dismiss him. So then once she did, I asked him how his day was and he said, "COOL!" and then proceeded to ask me like five times how my day was... like he's worried I'll be bored at home without him! So again he had fun and again he made lots of friends and again I asked their names and he said, "I told you! Lots!"
Anyway, besides that it is totally cute and he is having so much fun and that he is so excited to be back at school, it's really sweet, and I think my favorite part... she says selfishly... is when I see his little head looking around for me and the smile I see when he finds me waiting for him, and the super tight squeezer hugs he gives me when he runs over!

Did I miss anyone? I'm sure I did... the sneezing is making it hard to concentrate so I guess I should apologize if none of this makes any sense...
In other news... I actually have been writing and making some progress so hopefully I'll have a new chapter for all of you who have been so patiently waiting and or politely nudging me pretty soon. And yes, I do plan on continuing Days of Silence so the uproar can be put to rest! It will be from Lucas' POV though, and it will be called A Time for Truth. Coming soon also

Hugs and kisses,
