Hooray, Hooray for our 1st Day!

Wednesday was a big day for the Ver Meer household.  It was the first day that all 5 kids headed off to school together. 

Carter had his first day of preschool...

... and the twins had their first day of Kindergarten.

Everything went very well, and I think the boys enjoyed their day.  One thing is definitely certain... school completely wears them out!  They are hungry and tired by the end of the day.  Fortunately they are ready for bed much sooner than they use to be.  I finally get a few hours of quiet time before I go to bed.

Tuesday was the big kids and my first day of school.  One of my paras brought me the cutest homemade gift I have ever seen!

I love all of the minute details and time put into it.  Thanks so much to Cathy for brightening my day and making my school year start off with a smile.

Just Plain Tired!

The month of August has been crazy busy around here.  From shooting weddings, to teaching SMARTBoard classes, to preparing for a busy school year... I'm completely tuckered out!  There are days when I get home and feel like curling up with a nice soft blanket and taking a nap, but there is just no time for that.  I think the tiredness is affecting everyone in the house.  Even the boys are feeling it.
I came home from my class last week and found Carter resting peacefully.  I wanted to curl up right there next to him, but there simply wasn't room.  You see... Carter was so tired that he fell asleep in the empty "toy box" tote.
Apparently all the work it took to empty the toys out was too much.  He just climbed right in and fell asleep.  It was the cutest thing ever! 
Even kitty Boo was wanting to hop in and curl up.
