Peace, Love and Harmony

Have you ever had one of those days
when things just don't seem to be going the way that you
originally thought they would when you woke up?
You know, the kind of day when you get up thinking the world is a great place,
and the inhabitants of our vast planet are good peace-loving beings,
only to have your rose colored glasses replaced with HD lenses
precisely magnifying the not-so-good portions of our existence.
Ya.
That was my day.
At least the beginning of it, but I refuse to surrender.
I'm making some lemonade from lemons, my friends.
The best part?
Tomorrow is Friday!
Ryan and I are kid free all weekend long.
Peace, love and harmony.

The boys made it through their first week at school.
Awesome.
Here's the run down:

Austin {AKA "The Teenager"}loves high school.
He's already made friends with some older kids, so he's feeling better about the whole scenario.
Makes a mama happy.

Preston is totally stoked about 5th grade.
He has 6 teachers this year
and when asked what his favorite part of "intermediate school" is,
his response was,
"Not having to walk down the hall in a straight line."
He's easily pleased.

I picked Trysten up from school today for the first time this school year
and when asked about how he was liking 4th grade so far,
the word "boring" was used 3 times.
He'll come around.
He always does.

Carter is loving being at his school without his older brother.
I think he feels more "grown up".
He keeps telling me that he just missed getting his favorite 2nd grade teacher by one.
When I asked him how, he said,
"Because she's next door to my class, so I missed getting her by one door."
Okay.

Thank the good Lord above that Ryan has been in town all week.
Getting back into the swing of things with all of our clowns is no easy task.
Love those kids.

That's all for now, friends.
Have a great weekend!!
