Back to School, Cathching Up and Fay

Sorry I have not updated sooner! Boys got home safe and sound and we have been spending some quality time together! Oh how much I missed them!

Today I took the day off. It is Mickey's first day of bog boy school, and it was really important for me to be there. I had so many mixed emotions with him starting school. It has been a nerve racking week for me. I just can't believe my baby is starting Kindergarten. WOW! He got up at 6:30 am ready to start his day.
We took our traditional first day of school pictures at home and we made our way to school. Little Luis went directly to his area in the court yard and Mickey was directed to go to another area.
He was really excited while he waited to be called, but when the moment of truth was approaching I could just feel his mood shift.

He did not cry, but was very sad. It just broke my heart. I know that this is normal and that he will soon get used to it, but this was my baby going to big boy school!
By the time I got to my SUV, I had tears streaming down my face. Hubby was not able to witness this moment, as he was on his way to board a plane for a business trip to Atlanta GA. I sent him by text some pictures and he got them just in time before he boarded his plane ;)
Now we are getting ready for Tropical Storm Fay that will be heading our way! Hopefully all will be alright and we only get hit with lots of rain.

Ohhh, they look son nice.

He will get used to it by tomorrow, you'll see.

Hope the strom fades away before reaching your area.

Take care.

Oh I tell you, I cried like a baby when my boys went to kindergarten on their first day. I followed the school bus and was at the school when they got off of it to help them to their class. I cried all of the way to work and throughout the day. It's really hard. But he is so handsome and such a big boy. I can't believe how all of your boys have grown.

Hope all is well your way with Fay and all...Mickey looks so adorable with his slicked back hair, even if he does look so sad...heartbreaking isn't it???
I think it's equally hard for us moms.
