I am getting it together...

Dalton says that she is no longer my little baby... I had to officially cut the cord this year, and send her to Kindergarten! And boy did it HURT me! She can say what she wants, but she is STILL my baby! She was such a big girl until her mama had a little meltdown in the class room, and when she latched on to my legs crying I knew that I had to suck it up or it was gonna be really bad....

She LOVES Mrs. Harper so far.... the day we went to orientation she leaned down to Dalton's level to talk to her and Dalton latched on to her and hugged her... I melted right then and there!!! I know Mrs. Harper from way back then as a person, and she has always been the same sweet talking lady every time you saw her.



I shut down shop for a while to decide if I wanted to close my blog all together or not. And after all the personal emails that I got from the bloggy friends alone checking on me to make sure that I was ok... I have to keep on going! Thanks so much girls for letting me know that you care. I have a lot of changes going on with me, and one of those things is a personal decision to cut down on computer time and phone time. I am not on the phone a lot due to work, but my time when my girls are not at school is much more important to me now. I check a lot of blogs, but don't always have the time to comment... I am trying to fit everything in and it is HARD! Thanks for hanging in there with me peeps!!!!


Beth, I thought you would have been here by now... Promises, promises.. well, threats actually, but dang it woman I knew you would just show up one day! LOL






AND HERE WE GOOOOOOO.......






Dalton had her mind set that she wanted a new hair cut for school!!! Here is the back view.... And here is the side view, and if you know her you know that she LOVES her fancy earrings!






So don't think she was going to her first day of K without a new fancy pair on! I just knew MO would hook a sista up! LOL And Avery... she is getting so big! I can't believe that when I took Avery for her 1st day of K.. Heavy D was less than a week only and was in a tiny carrier....





I was still fine at this point until I walked back inside to get my purse, and there was a text on my phone from Ms. Pam... At that time I thought.. OMG I am NOT going to do so well at this today!! And of all things.. Lee was working days!





My 11 year old 6th grader, and barely 6 year old K...... WOW! So hard for me to believe!






This is going to be a great year... full of new things for us all! I know I have alot to update on, and if the picture uploader thing will cooperate then maybe I can get caught up some!!!

Well, it's about time you posted! LOL

Nah, I understand. Your family comes first, right? THEN your blog buddies...is that okay with you? You just gotta keep your priorities straight!

And yeah, one of these days, when you least expect it...you're gonna find me on your doorstep! Now that we have an empty nest, Bill's got this wild hair and wants to "go places we've never been" and "do things we've never done"...I think he's having a mid-life crisis. He just better not buy a motorcycle!

Glad to hear that Avery and Dalton got to school okay, and that you survived. Their pictures are so cute. I can't believe how much they've grown since the last pics you posted!

Looking forward to MORE posts from you SOON...no pressure.

Love ya, girl...
Beth

You crack me up! But, in ALL seriousness.....you'd better NOT shut this thing down! We gotta have us some throw the head back and laugh out loud, and no offense, but no one else can do that around these bloggy parts! But watch out, that Beth, she'll get ya!:) When I would be having a hard time, I always kept my guest room clean because I knew that doorbell was going to ring one day and she would pay me a visit! Love her! Love D's hair and LOVE the earrings! They are both so stinkin' BIG!
