FWF: Finally!

My littlest, my baby, my little guy REALLY starts kindergarten today. Our school eeeeaaaaasses in the kinders because a full day is a lot for those guys. We started off with an hour orientation, then a half hour of one-one baseline testing, which takes two days because of the class size. So finally, on the fourth day of school, they get to start. Kind of. He has two half days before they start with the full school day. He's more than ready to go- I'm stocking up on my personal supply of kleenex.
 
My third grader started the other day, which left a lot less refereeing for me to do. So I got out m'new Phyllis Harris stamps and my Copics and had a BALL coloring the afternoon away. For the first time in about a month. I've missed Friends with Flair!

 
I actually bought this set for the Abraham Lincoln quote: Whatever you are, be a good one. But this little girl reminds me of my own.
 
I'm off to enjoy my few hours of full choice on the TV and junk food for lunch if I feel like it. Have a great weekend!

Aww, sweet card. Don't know what I'll do when my youngest starts school. My 1st and 3rd graders are back to school so I also don't have to referee anymore either! I also look forward to being in control of the tv one day!!
