"Last" day of summer..

My first and only thought today is that the girls start school tomorrow. I spent all weekend cleaning purging everything we didn't need. This is going to be a good year. I have a great list of children (16 2 year olds) but I know half of them and they are all good, really good kids. So my blog will now consist of the girls day at school (In their own room) and my day.

It's amazing the transitioin this blog has made. When I started it back in April 07, I had already felt so much heartache with my attempt to become a mom, a heartache I continued to feel until November of that year and now I sit here with my beautiful daughters as they watch Dora and I blog.

Last night we tried on their first day of school outfits and it seemed that they lost all baby with one outfit. When we changed them into pjs, they still had the big girl look. We always see them as babies. They are our babies. However, they have grown up into beautiful toddlers.

So they start tomorrow. Donald is going with me to help out. I need him to be there. I'm not sure how the morning is going to go. I need to go in and open my classroom and drop the girls off in the same half hour. I'm thinking of leaving early and letting the girls hang out in my room while i set it up then bringing them to their classroom. My children don't arrive until 830, the girls go to their room at 820, so I will get 10 minutes of quiet time before the day starts. Not too bad.

I have to close right now, going over to a coworkers house for lesson plan writing and the girls can play with her kids. I'll get so much more accomplished.

Until tomorrow night...if I have the energy to blog that is :)

I so agree with you on the girls losing their baby that our girls are also two I put them in thing and I wonder where did the time go?:(

I hope all goes well with them at preschool and all goes well with your class as well.

I admire you I KNOW that I could not handle 16 2 year olds all day. That is why I chose a different career field. I LOVE my own kids but would not do good being a teacher :)

How exciting! I bet they are going to love school with all the other kids!

Have a good day tomorrow!

I hope you're all having an awesome day so far! What a big day for you. And do I ever know what you mean about them looking like big girls. I can't believe how big Andrew is these days -- being so independent and actually having conversations with me, when did that happen?!

I can't wait to hear how the first day went for all of you!
