Yeah I totally dropped the ball

Yesterdays post was supposed to have a picture of the boys on their first day of school and we got so busy with breakfast and making lunches and grabbing backpacks that I didn't have time to post the picture I took.

And I also forgot my USB cord at home so I couldn't even put the picture up from work.

It's there now but to save you some trouble by having to go back...here it is again.

They both had a great day! I was so glad. I was more nervous than both of them.

R1 didn't even knuckle bump me as he got out of the car when I dropped him off at the Jr. High. He just said bye mom, see you this afternoon. My mama heart broke into a million little pieces. I was prepared for no kiss and hug but no knuckle bump. Seriously, he's grown up. Thank goodness I still had R2 to take to school. I knew he would be my saving grace.

R2 and I walked into school together. He was saying hi to just about everyone. We got to his class room and he gave his teacher a big hug and told her he loved her. I was so happy. He put on his name tag and sat in his place as I filled out a few papers. Then it was time for me to leave. He told me he loved me and wrapped those arms right around my neck and hugged me tight. At least one of my boys wasn't embarrassed to still hug his mama.

Oh and I guess R1 still needed me after all. We had discussed before I dropped him off that I would be picking him in the front of the school but he called me because he couldn't remember if I was picking him up or if he had to ride the bus to the elementary school to met Hubs and R2.

So glad we all survived the first day of school, especially me!

By the time I saw the post, you had the pic on there! :) It's so hard to see them grow up & think they're too old to show affection to their mama! :( I'm glad they both still need you!
