Little Girl's First Day of Preschool

So, my little girl started preschool today and I'm a little sad. Don't get me wrong it's nice to have time to get stuff done by myself and I know that she is having a great time, but I can't believe that both of my kids are in school at some point during the week. Oh well, enough of the pity party.

I did learn something today...I am really bad at time management. I thought, "Wow, 3 hours all to myself. I am going to get so much done." WRONG! At 10:30 I realised that all I did was sort the laundry, put one load in, eat breakfast, and make a bigger mess with the paperwork that I was planning on organizing then when I started. How in the world did that happen. So, now (11:05) I have 10 minutes before I have to leave to pick up my daughter and I didn't do the one big thing that I should have and that is go and get her birthday present for tomorrow.

So, my question for all of you is this...How do you get yourself organized when your kids go back to school? Do you have a schedule? A list every morning? I would love to hear what your plan is. Leave me a comment and I will read it and visit your blog if you have one!

While I wait, here are some pictures of my kids from this morning.

Back to School and a Routine

Well, today was my oldest's first day of 1st grade and he did great! I didn't cry which I was very proud of! He is going to a different school this closest to our house and luckily he knew a couple of kids in his class from T-Ball this summer. I still have my little one home, until next week when she will be going to Preschool 3 half days a week.

What am I going to do with all that time? I'll tell you what! Get my house in order, prepare for the new little one coming in January, and actually have a routine! There are so many things that I want to get done before thist little one comes and I am determined to do it. Maybe it's my nesting coming early, we can only hope.

Don't worry I will post everything here and if anyone else is getting organized too I would love to hear from you! In the meantime, here are some pictures from the first day of school!
