Back to School

Okay, school started reallllly late this year. Gus's protests about getting up early and how boring school is rang hollow; I think even he was glad to get back. But of course, now I am home after dropping him off, and the house is really quiet, and even the bowl of Lucky Charms that I treated myself to cannot keep me from being sad. It is my annual Goofy Mom Sad Day. Why are all the other moms happy to have their kids off to school?? I love having Gus here. Of course, now let's admit it, I also love sleeping late and not making lunches at 6:45 am, so there is that as well. But I'm sad.

And then of course I had to go back through old pictures and found this:

Waaaaaaaaahhhhhh....... So cute. First day of kindergarten. I was going to subject you to a whole cavalcade of first day of school pictures, but I'll go easy on you. Today's picture is still on Matthew's camera, but maybe I'll post that later.

Gus and I had decided that it was time to give his room a makeover (it's been the same since he was 18 months old, so yeah, it's time), so I got to visit my best friends at Lewis Paint after dropping Gus off and picked out some quarts of paint to try out. Nothing soothes me like a big painting project!

Now let's see, it's 9:30 - only 5 and a half hours till I pick Gus up again! Yippeee!
