My New York children are gone and I am very sad.
I have gotten so used to them being here that it is going to feel lonely with only 3 kids instead of 5. (Wait...did I really just say that?) They are the sweetest girls and I love them like my own! Their mom is pretty great too. She really helped get my house (and life) together over the past few weeks. She really is the BEST sister anyone could ask for and I love her to pieces!
Miss you B, Hat, and Finny!

All of the Greats (except Gabby in DC)

My blogging is lacking due to my new Facebook addiction but these pictures had to go up. You know it's not easy to take pictures of your own family but try 7 children. Packy was literally taken out of the crib and brought outside so he was a little overwhelmed with "the scene". These are 7 of Nonnie and Papa's 8 great grandchildren. Gabby is in DC so she is the only one misssing. What a crew!

No Tears

Everyone had a great day at Alex II.
Emory said she "cried" a couple of times because she missed me.
I did not cry. I don't really worry about Emory.
She makes friends anywhere and everywhere.
When Jay started last year Jason cried.
Now when Packy starts 5K I will probably weep like a baby.
So speaking of my baby here is a picture of him having some Daddy time after supper.

First Day of School

First Day of 5k

First Day of 2nd Grade

We are very excited about the new what will Packy and I do ALL day by OURSELVES? I'm sure we can figure something out.

Is this a joke?

School starts tomorrow.
Jay and Emory both have fevers.
Jay puked.
Jay always pukes when he has a fever so I am holding out hope.
Really? Today yall are going to be sick?
Miss the first day of school?
I don't know if I can handle this.
