A BIG week

Wednesday...
was a BIG day, Maggie turned SIX! Presents poured in from all over the place, so THANK you to all of you that thought to ship her a gift. She really was THRILLED opening all those gifts. So much so that I have a whole post dedicated just to them coming up. You all really know how to make our princess smile!
THURSDAY...
was an even BIGGER day, as Maggie started FIRST grade. oh my is all I can say. She went from the downstairs to the UP-stairs this year, and it makes it a little hard to eavesdrop on her class, lol. With the windows being open in the fall you could hear what was happening if you stood under then windows. All I can say is, I wasn't the ONLY parent doing it! But way up there, well there is NO chance of being sneaky. We took our first day of school picture in front of the angel, and I thought this was something we did every year, but I guess we missed it last year, so that makes me sad!
As I was taking her pictures, all the other kids (that were already there) went inside so she got a little ticked at me. She told me that NO she didn't want me to walk her up this year...BUTI snuck up behind her a few seconds later and snapped this from the door way. See she doesn't look that mad, LOL. This is the first year she has her own desk, so this is BIG. She was sooo excited. Thursday and Friday were half days, so it eased us back into the routine. We had coffee and doughnuts in the gym with a lot of the other parents for a while, then it was off with Fionn for his 15 month check up. He is doing well, up to 24 pounds(over but I can't remember exactly) and he only had to have two shots this time. Here he is with Bogey(his monkey) when we got to the dr.s office...He was not quite this happy when we left!
We went grocery shopping and then had to hurry home to pick up sissy from the bus. He was so excited to see her, but she came off the bus looking like this. She took a little tumble running out to the bus and scraped up her chin, hands and knees. Yes, on the first day.
But on the way home, he wanted to hold HER hand, and I heard her say " I did miss you brother" as she told him WHY she had to go to school...

What about the rest of you, did your children start school yet?? Those first days are awful hard arn't they? We just got used to having her home with us all day, and now, off she goes again...
I would like to say that Fionn is lost without her, but Friday morning he sure had a great time smashing her new Barbie jeep into his dumptrucks for head on collisions...but that's another story, lol. We hope you all had a great week!
