On top of it all, my kids have not made the adjustment yet of being able to get up on time. Claire insisted on an alarm clock and it is set for 6:45...at 7:05 this morning it was still going off and she was still snoozing away! If she would go to sleep at a descent hour at night rather than lay in bed mad bc "she is not tired yet", she would wake up to the brand new alarm clock! Owen is usually the first up in the house and happy as can be....well now that he is not alone when he wakes up to do (read get in the fridge and pantry and eat what he pleases :)) as he wants, he is in a foul mood. Bree, who would be found between me and Shane, has no interest in getting up and is usually the last one to arise. No matter what time I get up, 7:30 gets here so fast and we are always frantically wiping faces, last minute hair touch ups and chunking three kids in the van!! I may have to alter our breakfast menu to include some heavy caffiene soon :)!
On top of it all, we have had some added stress of Owen's school plans. He had his first day of SonShine school on Tuesday. Tuesday afternoon we found out they had room for him at Shiloh. So after one day of his other school, we pulled him out and enrolled him at Shiloh. So this morning, me, Owen and the now VERY mobile Bree made our way to the Dean's office for Owen's interview and the enrollment process. Now that would make for a great reality show. Shane could not come as it was last minute and he had scheduling conflicts, so it was just me and the two youngest of my crew. Bree was all over the place, screaming as if I was burning her everytime I would pick her up, whilst Owen was being interviewed and tested by the Dean. I did not have time to get nervous for his (as I did Claire's) but Lord help me, he stressed me out. Rather than a chance for her to see where Owen was in his development, motor skills etc, Owen saw this as an opportunity to check out her office, tell her about his bday party, and not really into the whole "answering her questions" part of it (he would not answer, but ask her a question in return!). By the time it was done, I was covered in sweat from the stress of him and corraling a now very VERY mad Bree that was throwing a fit, and Owen was showing the Dean just how fast his new school tennis shoes made him by running laps around her office. They did enroll him. Maybe she just wanted us out of her office. :)
Soooo tomorrow is Owen's SECOND FIRST day of school. He is so excited. He has a super sweet teacher and a cute class. I am happy for him and so glad he is in Shiloh, but I am little apprehensive of him going to school three days a week, all day! But I know he will love it and it will be so good for him. Just for kicks and giggles, here are some cute pictures I originally took on his FIRST FIRST day of school Tuesday. They are cute and worth posting...
So it has been a crazy week but I am looking forward to tomorrow when both my big kids go to school together, dressed in the Shiloh Chapel shirts, and learn more about our Lord! I am sure me, Bree and Nonna will miss them, but find other things to do (and some working in there too) :)!! Happy Wednesday and will be back for his next set of pictures!!!
