First Day of Kindergarten!

Well here it is Brock's first day of Kindergarten. He was so excited to go! He had been asking for about 2 weeks if tomorrow was his school day. He really didn't like it that Ethan had a week of school before he did. So it was an exciting day! I don't think Brock has ever gotten ready for anything that quickly before ever!!! (That is not since he was a tiny baby and Mommy was doing it all for him anyway, but then he still took forever because he was a slow eater then too!!!) But the morning went smoothly and he was proud to be a big kid! He got to ride the bus home too. Sorry I didn't post a picture of that too. Sometimes I think I may be going overboard with the pictures. But I had to include the cute picture of Hayden. I know you are thinking what does that have to do with Brock's first day of school!? Well I will tell you. I love to make fresh homemade cookies for my kids on their first day of school. I don't know if it has to do with a comfort food or if it has to do with the fact that even when I was a little girl I knew that I loved it when I came home to fresh baked cookies. I don't know if it was the first day of school or not but I know I loved it. And I knew even then that I wanted my kids to come home to that smell on their first day of school. So that they would know that they were special to me I loved them, thought of them while they were gone and that I made something special just for them. Yeah yeah crazy but I can't help it other then scrap booking food is my other hobby. And it so happens that in this case I always combine them.(I take pictures of them eating their cookies and then scrapbook it! Ok I am double crazy!)
So this year Hayden got to have a cookie too. She is a little spoiled and I am much more relaxed with my 4th baby, because there is NO WAY Ethan would have had a chocolate chip cookie when he was 10 months old! What a lucky lucky girl. She loved it if you can't tell. It is a fun tradition for us all. Oh and just so you know the first thing Brock told me when he got off of the bus and I asked him how his day was, was "We had Popsicles for snacks!" I am glad he loved it by Wednesday he is singing to me "I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee." It is really cute! Gotta love that kid!

Nice header picture! I love it. I thought it was cool (though probably unplanned) that the kids that look more like Larry are by him and the ones that look more like you are by you. I can't believe Brock is so grown up! He's so confident and self-assured. I love big huge backpacks on little teeny kids!

I have to laugh everytime I see him with his backpack! The size was much less imortant to him then the color. It was the only yellow one we could find (or I should say the first yellow one we found and he had to have it!)

Fun to see pictures of the kids, I can't believe how much they change. Glad that Brock had a good first day of school, so did Madie, I still can't believe they are old enough to go. Glad you started a blog.
