Yeah, first days all around!

Conner had his first day of school yesterday.  When I picked him up after school I asked how his day went.  HARD.  But fun.  I was really proud of him.  He had about an hour of homework and then another 30 minutes of reading to do, and he did it all with no complaints.  Oh and he looked so darn handsome in his uniform!  I have a feeling that this is going to be a great fit for him!


Alia and Ann-Elise started today.  Alia was in bed last night at 7:45 and up bright and early at 6:30.  She showered,dressed and ate breakfast and still had over an hour until we had to leave!  Ann-Elise slept in a little longer (maybe 6:45) but she was fully dressed when she popped out of her bedroom.  Mike was able to go into work late today so I could drop the girls off at school.  I was able to meet Alia's teacher and that was nice.  I was a little worried about how I'd like her, but she seems very nice.  Then we headed to Leise's classroom.  She has the same teacher as last year with the same kids in her class.  They had to pick an upside down card off one table and sit in the corresponding table for the day.  Luckily, Ann-Elise was able to pull the same number as 2 of her best friends did.  Her teacher just laughed and commented that that seating arrangement probably would only last 1 day!


Adrie has to wait until next Tuesday for the start of preschool.  However, today they are having their open house.  So we will be going to school today also.  She is so excited about it.  Too cute.  I love it when it's fun!


On an all about me note:  Mike took me out last Friday night.  Totally surprised me with a nice dinner and then we popped into the Mac store.  We checked out MacBooks and then he bought me a MacBook Pro.  I LOVE it!!!  I haven't switched my files over yet, so I have really only used it to IM and do some internet browsing, but it is totally cool.  So, I'm excited to check out some fun stuff on that!


Oh, and Conner wouldn't let me take pics of him yesterday.  And then we tried to take some of the girls this morning, but the camera batter was dead!  So much for trying...
