There were tears....

Today was the big day!  Maggie jumped out of bed at 6 o'clock, and was on a mission to get ready for her big day.  She had a huge smile on her face the whole time.  She is SO her father's daughter, I am the polar opposite of a morning person.  All of us piled into the van and we were off.  I felt ill the whole way there.  She was chanting, "We're almost there" from the back seat.  We pulled into the drop-off line and waited our turn.  Her principal helped her out of the van, we said our good byes and off she went.  I couldn't take my eyes off of her as the van pulled away.  She looked so small opening the big door all by herself.  Then she was out of sight.  That is when the tears started rolling down my face.  I can't believe this day is finally here. 

The day was so different with only the smallest little B's here.  There is a whole different dynamic between the 2 of them when their big sister is not here.  They kept asking me if we could go get Maggie now.  I got tons of picking up and laundry done.  Finally got around to hanging up the hooks I bought awhile ago for their coats and school bags.  That was all before lunch.  We all went to pick Maggie up from the bus stop in the afternoon.  She had a great day.  I think riding the bus was her favorite part! 

I am so excited to see what I will accomplish when they are all at school.  Don't get me wrong, I do love spending time with all of them.  But this house has been neglected for far too long.  My goal is to get our home organized and get routines established, so I am able to spend more of my time with my little B's!!
