The pictures from the kids and of the kids are wonderful. I know you don't want to hear it but Ethan does look like he can handle the world!
They are all adorable!

1 week + 1 day for you!!!!!!!

I still have 2 weeks + and I'm starting to bug out a bit.

I survived 1st grade too. DD6 started on Wed and it is so quiet with her gone all day now. (She had 1/2 day Kindergarten)

And DS4 will be going to preschool starting next week 2 days a week for a couple of hours.

So it will be me and DS20mths at home.

Don't you feel they are growing up too fast.

I still can't believe your trip is coming up. Wow the summer flew by too fast. Too bad all the nice weather is now that they are back in school. Where was all this sunshine before?

Your trip is right around the corner!! I'm so excited for you! I just wish we were overlapping. Oh well, another time. And in the meantime maybe we can plan a New England meet!

Have fun with all the last minute planning details!!

I missed it....hoping everyone will join me with the SINGLE DIGIT DANCE!!!!! Woohoo!! I can't believe it! One week aka 7 more days from this exact moment, I will be in DISNEY WORLD!!!!!!!!!! I think I must be in denial, I can't believe it's almost time!!!!!

I've been soooo bad at DISing lately, I'm sorry!! Tracey, Adam and family (for those that didn't read my December 2008 TR, Tracey is my BFF that joined us in Disney our last trip) came for a last minute visit from Philly this long weekend so between cleaning for them and then having 10 people (in total) in my house all weekend there was no time to DIS!! Sorry about that!! I hope that everyone had a great Labor day weekend and got out and enjoyed the beautiful weather!! We had a great one....we spent from 9 a.m to 6:30 p.m on the beach with about 6 couples and our 15 or so children, grilling, swimming ,digging, sunning...it was glorious and officially our last day on the beach for this Summer. What a GREAT Summer, it was!! We went to the playground, played in the yard, walked on Plymouth waterfront to visit the Mayflower and just enjoyed our time together with Tracey and Adam. It was a great weekend. And believe it or not, DISNEY came up!! We're trying to plan a get together for the week between Christmas and New Years with them and we keep pricing the indoor waterparks and that sort and it's SO expensive, that we actually priced Disney!!! But I don't think it will happen....airfare is SO EXPENSIVE!!! But never say never, right? LOL!!

We have to get the boys to bed....but I will do my best for a picture update tomorrow. Thanks for doing the single digit dance with me and I have a lot to update....stay turned!!! Hope you're all well!!

1 week + 1 day for you!!!!!!!

I still have 2 weeks + and I'm starting to bug out a bit.
Awww, thank you!! Ethan was doing great earlier in the week last week, Friday he all of a sudden decided that he didn't want to go to school anymore, he started crying when the bus was coming up my street and said he didn't want to go to school that it was boring, etal. When he got on the bus he was still crying and when it pulled away I was crying as he looked at my out the window. It was SO hard for me. He came home that afternoon and the bus driver told me he cried all the way to school and when she asked what was wrong he told her that he missed his Mommy!!! My Ethan is such a tough kid, not very emotional at all, tough to get a hug/kiss out of, and all boy, for me to see him cry and hear that, I lost it. He was pretty upset again tonight when we said tomorrow was another school day, started getting all upset again with things. It's killing me. I decided today to buy him something to remind him of me that he could bring to school with him, my DH and I decided on a Cross necklace. Kohl's had sterling ones on sale this week for $15 and it's very small and he's been wanting one. We sat down tonight and told him that we were proud of him and that we had something for him. And then I told him that when he was sad at school that he would have this to remind him how much we love him and know that even though Mommy isn't there watching over him that God would be. He seemed very relieved when I told him that. I'm hoping that this will keep him strong and remind him how much we love him. It's so hard to watch him struggling with this but I have to remind myself too that he is only 6 and he's never really left me before and this is a LONG day for a little guy. These growing pains are SOOO hard!!! Thansk for letting me vent!!!

So, are you ready for your trip?!!

Summer did fly by....we got off to a late start with June's weather not being the best and there it went.......hope you got out there this weekend, it was a beauty here!!!

I feel the same way. I start crying when I think of going to school, and I'm the teacher!!!

Poor guy. It is a long day for little boys and girls, and with all of the testing and NCLB rules, they have managed to zap a lot of the fun out of school for both students and teachers. I hope he finds his comfort zone soon and begins to enjoy it a little more. I hope his little treasure helps him get through each minute he is away from you, and I hope that he will ever keep that comforting thought in mind - that God is always with him, every second of every day, when things are good and when things are bad.

You've got a great looking bunch of boys there, as you know. You are a very blessed girl!

Have fun this week getting ready for the trip!

Ya, it would be nice to do it again, but I really dont' think it will happen. We'll see..never say never!!

Thanks C, me too, today was worse for us. I can't wait for him to get home!!

Thanks MeMom, your words mean a lot to me. We had a worse morning today, I've been crying today now, too. I know I'm doing the right thing by sending him but it doesn't make it any easier. I had to physically put him on the bus this a.m...my 50 lb son, he was really upset. I told him that I loved him and that he needed to do this and we'd be here when he got home. I also wrote a note to his teacher and she called 1st thing, about 1/2 hour after he got there, to tell me he was doing just fine. Phew! If I know he's okay there, I can get through this but wow, this is the most difficult thing to deal with and I'm feeling like a bad Mom. And to be honest, the thoughts of getting him all adjusted this week and then leaving him all next week upsets me all over again......

Thanks for your nice comments on my boys.....they are pretty cute, aren't they? LOL!! I'm a bit biased and I know, I am very blessed. I am so lucky to be their Mommy!!!

I love those pictures the kids drew!!!!! So, so sweet!

The crowds right now at WDW are AWESOME. We walked onto so many rides, we hardly needed FPs! It was wonderful! I hope the same for you!!

Keep us posted on that week between Christmas and New Years! Airfare is outrageous though, we still haven't bought ours....ick.

One week to go for ya!!!

And you can't go back in December!

Why? - cuz we're not going!! (unless I become a "Disney Mom" that is ... in which case you'll have to go in early-December so we can't meet up in WDW yet again ...)

Don't worry too much about da kid ... Now that the novelty of the first few days of school has worn off, he probably realizes school = "work" ... so he just does the same thing I do every morning before dragging my butt to the car ...

Our daughter had a "fit" yesterday after school because 2 of her friends came over to play (they only had half days) - but Danielle and her Mom had to do homework first, so the DW sent them away ... She calmed down after being "grounded" for a bit, did her homework, and was back to her usual self ...

They just need to get used to the new routine ...
