It sounds funny to hear you talk about getting ready for school to start next week - we've been back over two weeks already!

Awwww, Ethan's such a big boy starting all day school! I understand your sadness, it's hard and wonderful all at the same time watching them grow up. My oldest will start high school next year and everytime I think about it I get a big fat lump in my throat - it's amazing how fast time passes. It seems like only yesterday he was a cute little 2 year old, kicking footballs in the backyard and then running around in a circle with his arms in the air. *sigh*

WOW, 2 weeks already?! When do the kids get out of school? Must be a short Summer for you!!!

Thanks for understanding my sadness, I was talking to him about it today and welling up a bit....he'll be gone about 8:30 every day until 3:45! That's a long day for a little boy! I'm sure he'll do just fine, just these 1st's with my first born is all....Lucas and Cole (in theory!) will have it much easier!! LOL!! WOW, HS! I can't even imagine.....it makes you want to hold onto them just that much tighter, doesn't it?

I hope you're well!! Thanks for bring strong with me! And I hope you don't mind 1st day of school pics for that days update next week!! I'll be a proud Mommy!!

Your plans for the last day look good to me.
I love both ToT and RnRC too. I think it is great that your mom will ride those. I missed the GMR last year so we will do it this year.

You have been busy. I'm not a mom but my BFF is. Her eldest DD is a senoir this year. It seems like yesterday when I was babysitting that tiny girl while her mom and dad went out. Time does move too quickly for some things.

I like the idea of you showing us where you will be until you go.

So glad "The Talk" went well with the boys! Very smart on just being honest since Ethan would have figured it out - that would have been worse. Love the "secret mission" too. And presents, ya, everyone loves presents!

I will do my very, very best to get those maps mailed to you ASAP when we get back. I can just imagine all your boys gathered around looking at the map pointing to various things on what you will be doing each day!

That Mommy Guilt is awful, isn't it? But, this will be a GREAT thing for you, your Mom, your sister and your boys. And coming home will be all the sweeter.

The purple dresses look really pretty-I think it will all look great! I like the idea of your Mom in a darker shade since she is Mom.

I've only done a very small bit of driving at WDW, but it was EASY. Very quick too. I would suggest to use the car that day - then you have more time at DHS! ME would probably pick you up around 4:00 pm, 3 hours before your flight. I think.

Your trip is just around the corner!!!

Their last day of school is May 20th, so really they get almost 3 full months of summer, but it does seem that the first day of school gets earlier and earlier every year!

Hi Kristal, thanks for your input on driving, seems easy enough and it's nice to know that it will give us more time in DHS that morning, hopefully Jodi doesn't mind driving us, now!!

Time does move too quickly, people always tell you that when you're younger but then when it happens to you, it's crazy! It seems like only yesterday Ethan was born....early, in the NICU and here he is, going to 1st grade.....WOW!!!!

Hi Brook!
PHEW...thank goodness that the "talk" went well. I was so worried! But now they are getting excited to talk about it with me and Grammy, they were telling her this week of all the "new" things she's never seen and what to ride. So it's been fun!! I'm still worried about saying good bye to them that day and leaving for 5 full days, but I'll be fine, just that initial step, you know. AND yes, Mommy guilt is the worst!!! But you're SO right, it will be good for ALL of us....and Mommy will come home a new (revived! LOL!) Mommy......I hope!! LOL!!

Thanks for trying to get the maps for us, that's exactly what I envision, as well. NO worries though, if you can't do it, don't have time, it's FINE!!! I don't want you to stress over it, okay? If you can, great, if not, that's fine too!!!!

Thanks for the input on driving, seems lke that's the plan for us then our last day. To get the most out of our DHS (very short!) day.....should work out just fine then.

Okay...off to lunch. Have a great weekend!!!!

Wow! That's a long school day! Madison starts at 9am and gets out at 3:05pm. Elementary school around here is always just 6 hours long. Back in Syracuse, I think we went for 6 and a half hours.
