Day 970: Get Ready!

The kids start school tomorrow.

Little M starts Kindergarten.

I'm holding it together.  Barely.

So, today was spent unpacking from our trip and preparing for school.  We stopped by the school this afternoon to meet the kids' teachers and fill out the necessary paperwork.  We lucked out and Sweet P's teacher was still in her room.  So, we got to visit with her for a bit and see the room.  That was really nice.  And a Joyful Moment to see that she seems like a very nice woman.

Then we bumped into Sweet P's teacher from last year.  It was really fun to see her since she and I developed a bit of a bond as I volunteered in the classroom most of the year.  We got to show her Darling A--always a Joyful Moment.

Unfortunately, Little M's teacher wasn't there.  We peeked into the classroom, but I was really sad we didn't get to meet his teacher since this is his first day of school we're talking about here.  And he's not quite so independent as his big sister.

Or, maybe I'm just having a hard time letting him go...

The good news is, we did have a good evening.  HH gave each of the kids a father's blessing for Family Home Evening.  I'm so grateful he holds the Priesthood and can bless them.  It is certainly a Joyful Moment to know that.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments and a tear-free day tomorrow!
