1. Alden's first day yesterday in grade one. We got to school (just me and him since Reg had a late start time) and we walk into the school to find his name on the list for which classroom he's in. And low and behold... his name isn't on the list. So we wait in the office to find out why. They said it was cause we were only here a short time?? Anywho, got that fixed up and took him into his classroom where two of the boys he knows from church are there. (yipee!)
Here he is out side the school doing the mom hurry up and take my picture face....
After school we (me, Lucy and eli) go to pick him up from his very first day of grade one and well Lucy throws a big fit. A fist flying, screaming, kicking, snot flying fit. I literally drug her all the way to the van. And you know how when your kids is doing that and you feel like everyone is looking. Well, they were. In fact, it got so bad one stranger walked up to me to ask if I needed help. So I handed Eli to her (which made him start screaming) and tried to push in Lucy's belly so I could get the car seat around her. Finally did.... and then I close to door and the lady hands me Eli and starts telling me how two year olds grow out of this phase and yada yada... (too bad SHE'S ALMOST FOUR!) and i was crying by then. So I get into the van and Lucy tries to kick and hit Alden all the way home...... which put Alden in kind of bad mood..... and Eli..... and me.
So all in all. Alden's first day of school was....um... eventful. It was a I feel like a bad mom kind of a day. So you know. It was.
And on to more uplifting things.....
2. September Scraptivity kit....
I made cupcake toppers and took them all to the Young Women in our ward.
The paper and stamps are from the kit and I added the little tags I made in photoshop and printed out and ribbon. It was a good thing to do in the evening after I had a bad day.
And on the Scraptivity note.... I've been designing with Scraptivity for like 5 years. And I've decided to step down. It's been lots of fun, but this September kit is my last one. I am ready for a break. I love all the girls I've gotten to know over the five or so years. Tons of talents and wonderful girls all over Canada. Who knows if I'll get to be on another DT or not. Sometimes I am not sure if I could get on another one - there are lots of talented people out there. But I think it is the right move right now. So on to other things!
3. I am off to bed. I've gotta get used to this earlier getting up deal. And I haven't made Alden's lunch yet... now it's like I'm a real mom eh? :)
