What an awesome weekend!!!!!

On Saturday I went to a crop with my gal pals from Scraptivity, as usual I laughed lots, ate tons of junk and this time, I know some of you won't even believe it, but I actually cropped!!!!! I did 4 pages, if you don't believe it you can see it on my girl Tina's Blog.

And to top off the day, which was already awesome!!! I get home and my dh had a huge surprise for me:

Rewind a few days, DH comes home with a 32" TV/monitor for his computer, I suggest that we go to buy a dishwasher on Sunday and get a nasty" do we have money for a dishwasher?" "uh yeah maybe if you hadn't spent $1000 on that monitor" anyway, I was complaining about it at the crop, I get home and lo and behold a new dishwasher, installed ready to go, I almost cried, he totally blew me away!!! maybe people really can change!!!

There have been some changes made, the class was so big that they had to hire another teacher and now she will go in the afternoon instead. She will have a supply teacher for the next 2 days until the real teacher is hired and she will start on Friday, thurs, there is no school in the afternoon, talk about a confusing start to school!!!

Well that's it

I no longer have any babies at home, today was V's first full day of school, they stagger them in here for JK, she had a 20min meet the teacher last week, a full day today with 10 other kids then the whole class starts on Monday.
And I will admit it, I cried, bawled like a baby, not in front of her, when she lined up they came, hard and fast, I'm not good with letting go of my children, I try to be, but I'm not, I love them more than my life itself and wish we could hang on forever. Here they come again as I type this, and remember how scared her little face looked in that line. I know she'll love it in a few days and will look forward to each morning of school the way all little kids do, but for me it means the end of babyhood, no more little ones at home with me and that makes me just a little bit sad.
