Back to School They Go!!! (Yippie)

So today my kids started school back up. I couldn't wait for this day to come. I mean its sad, but I am more excited than anything for them to be back in school. Our day started at 6:30am. My house was chaotic and loud until 7:40am when we left to go to school. Now it is peaceful and quiet. Don't get me wrong I will miss them, but this is just a nice 7 hour break I will get 5 days a week. :)

Devon set his alarm, and was up before I was. I was amazed because he didn't go right to sleep last night when I put him to bed. I walked out in the living room and there he sat on the couch all dressed with his shoes already on. I couldn't believe my eyes. Because last year I literally had to drag him out of bed in the mornings. He must have been ready to start the 4th grade today. He picked out Oatmeal for his breakfast today. He ate that up fast so he was all ready. He got his teeth brushed and wanted to leave then. It wasn't even close to time to leave yet. So he waited patiently.

Brianna on the other hand was still in bed, and I had to go in her room two times and tell her it was time to get up. She opened her eyes and just looked at me. Finally she got up and brushed her hair. She told me she wanted Coco Wheats for her breakfast. So while that was cooking she got dressed. She came out in the kitchen and asked me why Devon got to eat before she did. LOL seriously.. I said because you were still in bed. She is starting 1st grade (again) this year. I don't think she is looking forward to going back like Devon is.
Oh, and up when I was talking about Devon waiting patiently, lol that was a joke. There was no sign of anyone having patience this morning. He was fighting with Brianna every chance he got. I was so ready to take them when the time came.
