The older two have ROCKED their first week of school. Eli was exceptionally tired the first couple of days, but has adjusted to the 7-hour day very quickly. Addie loves everything about her class, her teacher, her homework, etc. She has that spark again!! Izzy started this morning and walked in with zero tears. Her mama had a few on the car ride home :( They are growing up crazy fast. Love walking through these "firsts" with each one of them. Hope for many more.
It's been so fun to see these kiddos interact this summer. They all fight, of course... they have their moments where I want to scream or pull my hair out... but for the most part, they really love each other and take care of each other. I've seen Eli and Izzy really connect this summer, becoming the best of friends. Addie has done an amazing job at taking care of Oliver. Fun to see their little bond. And Oliver just adores Eli. Many mornings I'll walk in the room to see him sitting in Eli's lap, watching a show or just letting Eli rub his back. I am so ready for them to be back in school, but at the same time, I will miss the days we just get to hang out and be together, with no agenda, no schedule, no rushing around. Love these four. Looking forward to the year ahead and watching them grow.
