Jess Sisters First Day of School

Summer went entirely too fast and today is the first day of school. 
This summer was filled with so much fun & lots of memories.
I know this school year will be filled with just as much fun & memories.
 
 
My girls are growing up so fast and as of today I send all 3 of my little ladies to school.

On Monday we packed our backpacks with all our supplies, picked out our first day of school outfits, got there lunches ready and even painted our nails.  The girls were both anxious and excited to start school this morning.  Mom on the other hand, her stomach was in knots.  I had this feeling sending the two older girls off to school for the first time and today I send my last "baby" to school.  She's leaving me to become a big girl.  After dropping off my sweet girl, this mom may have sat in her car in the parking lot for a good ten minutes and had a little cry sesh!  Totally normal right?!
 
After I left the school I ran some errands alone (which was a little weird not having my side kick), then came home and did a little cleaning.  I mean it was a little too quiet not having someone asking me a million questions or making me laugh!  At least after I clean the house, it'll stay that way since there all gone at school all day!  I was excited to leave and go pick them to hear all about there day.  They had an early release day today, Kendall's class came out first and she almost made me cry again, she came running out as fast as she could and gave me the biggest hug, which this mama needed.  I missed my sweet girl.  Her older sisters followed right behind.
 
We got in the car and I was totally excited to hear all about there day.
Kaylee - she made a new friend today (Kylie) and she's excited to have her best friend Luke in her class again.  She said her teacher is really nice.  They made special dough, which she is pretty excited about it.  They didn't do too much work today she said and she thinks homework starts tomorrow!
 
Keira - her best friend Avery is in her class again, which she is happy about.  Keira thought it was awesome that she gets her own desk to put all her stuff in.  They did a little bit of work and the teacher read some books to them.
 
Kendall - she got to color a hat they made that says "I rocked my first day of TK", they got to build stuff with blocks, play, and even rest while listening to music.  She did say she cried a little bit after I left this morning cause she missed me.
 
I am so glad they each had a good day and I'm excited for the school year.

She's a "dino"mite gal

 
Yes I did reference a quote from Wreck it Ralph, when you've seen the movie a million times it was only fitting.  Kendall loves dinosaurs, like loves them, so what does a mom do?  She calls her mom (Mimi) and asks if she can make her grandbaby a custom dino dress.  My mom has been sewing and making clothes since I was little and I told her over the years that she needed to open a shop, last year she finally opened it and its been going great! (go give her a follow on IG bugs.boutique). To complete the amazing dino dress, my mom had Mimi_makes make Kendall a matching bow, it turned out perfect.  Nothing completes the outfit like a custom pair of dino earrings from our favorite earring shop pisces prisms

Also can I talk a minute about my "baby" heading off to school in 5 days!  I'm still looking for the mom group for us moms who are in denial that our kids are growing up, if I ever find it, I'll let all you mom know!  I'm trying not to think about her going cause I might actually start crying.  I know the tears will come after I drop her off on Tuesday morning!  Although age 4 has had our trials its been so much fun, I'm going to miss her asking me a ton of questions, her telling me she's hungry every 5 minutes, all the snuggles I could ask for.  She's been my little sidekick for the last 4.5 years and now for 6 hours a day, 5 days a week I'll be kid free!  I'm not sure how I feel, in a way I'm like yes, I can clean the house and it will actually stay clean, run errands easier but on the other hand I'm sad.  I'll miss our laughs, our starbucks dates and sneaking down the hall to watch her quietly playing with her babies or Barbies.  She is more than excited to go to school and make some new friends and for that I'm excited for her too.  I know she'll do awesome and she'll learn so much, I guess its hard for me to let go, she's my baby!
