First day all over again

I am officially old...I have a second grader and it is depressing. What scares me more than having a second grader is next year having a kindergartener and a third grader. Lucas' first day of school was today. My house was actually rather calm...as calm as it can be with a 4 year and an 18 month old running around. But they got along...they played...they didn't fight...and noone was tattling...it was heaven! He is in a team teaching class this year so it's a new experience for us. There are well over 40 kids in his class and they have two teachers. I was very concerned about it at the beginning but he seems to like it...I am trying to give it a chance and see how it works out before I start complaining and for those who know me you know that's harder than it sounds! He had a great first day and best of all for him(that is)is he had no homework. He was home for 20 minutes when the first fight broke out....so much for calm,huh?

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I always love getting to know other mom's with three boys! There's just something about mom's with three boys that makes them special. :) Your little girl is adorable! Getting to do the girly things after boys is the best. I'm looking forward to checking back often.

By the way, if you think you're old now, just wait until your oldest is driving and starting his junior year in high school!!!!

Okay, I've got it even worse than the two of you - MY oldest has just started driving and just started her SENIOR year in HS!! Enjoy those baby years while you can - they are gone in a blink!

I saw your comment on my blog today! I am so excited! We live in Powdersville (if you know where that is) and are only about 20 min away from Mauldin. Your blog is great and I can't wait to see what Ashton comes up with for you:) She is such a great blogger. I will check back, and please stop back by mine - I love visitors and comments.

Yes, I felt old ,too, on the first day of school. My oldest in 10 in the 5th grade....middle school is next GASP! The next is 8 in 3rd grade. My third child is 5 in K5 and the baby, 2, is still at home with me.
