My kids’ school had a lunch where parents could come and eat with their kids!
Because each of my three older kids has a different lunchtime it meant that I was at their school for two hours. That wasn’t my favorite (with a baby) but it was worth it because each one of the older kids felt so special! It was awesome sitting with them each separately and talking with them.
I bought them lunchables to make it extra special (we saw a lot of happy meals that day, which I think my kids would’ve preferred) and… that’s about it.
Ember was super excited about being at the kids’ school. She always wants to stay at school when we drop the kids off. On the kids’ first day of school she cried when we went home. She said through her tears that day, “I want to see my class and meet my teacher!”
I didn’t take any pictures with Brooke because she is at that age where she feels embarrassed by photos when her friends are around!
Lately everywhere I go people see me taking a picture of my kids and ask if I want to get in the picture and they’ll snap it for me. I always say yes and I always appreciate it. You’d think I’d be embarrassed but because I value these pictures so much I’m not at all!
The guy that took these was a dad and he snapped like 5 photos. Usually people take one and call it good. This guy took a couple, then squatted down, told Ember to smile, and took a few more! I was like, thanks for all the effort! lol
My kids loved Frozen! They’ve been singing the songs ever since we left the theater. Payson cried so many times during the movie. He’s my most sensitive child and anytime something sad happened he’d be in tears and I’d have to comfort him. I told him a lot, “It’s okay honey, she’ll live, she’ll be fine…”
I’m going to throw these last two pictures in here… Payson and I made a bunch of gluten-free treats for him for his class party. And then, guys, when I got to the school and handed his teacher the bag of stuff (that’s what I’ve always done, in Arizona they don’t make any special treats for Payson and I had to provide regular treats for the rest of the class once a month! haha) his teacher here in Colorado told me that she’d had the parent volunteers making class treats to make everything gluten free! I stood there speechless. First of all… that’s just amazing. Second of all… I felt sorry for the other parents having to go through the trouble. But Payson, he’s never felt so included before so it was just amazing.
