A good first day...

Kyle has been bugging me to do a "real" post...not one of those "tips" posts.

SO this is for you honey!

This week leading up to school has been pretty stress free. Thursday we had a "Meet and Greet" at the boys' school. All of their teachers seemed really nice and the kids were excited and ready to start! Afterwards we went to Cracker Barrel where Jackson challenged Aidan to a game of checkers after dinner:

I had promised to take the boys to the zoo over this summer but we just never got the chance. So we planned to take them this past Saturday. But it was pouring rain all day so we decided to go see Space Chimps instead. It was cute...I still like Wall-E better! I snuck in my $0.30 snack bags of Cheeto's for the kids but we ended up getting drinks and popcorn anyway...it was fun and the kids didn't mind missing out on the zoo.

Sunday we went to church and then came home and got everything ready for Monday morning. We ironed and laid out clothes and socks, made lunches and got the kitchen ready for breakfast. Kyle cooked made to order pancakes for the boys. Yummy!

The boys were so happy and impressed they told their friends at school! I am hoping this can be a 1st day of school tradition. Their 1st day went fine they said...they all liked their classes and teachers so far.


On a totally unrelated note...I got these adorable little aprons at the Dollar Tree the other day...

for when the little ones get another cooking lesson from Daddy...
