First Day

Today was the first day of school! Needless to say I was a little distracted and spacey this morning, but I remembered at the last minute to get a picture of Caleb, and totally embarrass him (that's in the mama job description, right?):
"No! We'll do it when I get home. Aw, come on, in public even!"

We found out that Calvin is in the same class as 2 of his good friends, and his teacher has the most awesome hair (it's silver! gorgeous! great cut! yes, I am shallow!). I told her about Sonja, and she said she'd give Calvin a little extra TLC. I also, in my spacey-ness, forgot to pack his snack, and took forever to find the thermos for his lunch (he went with grilled red potatoes, a cut up pork chop, some BBQ sauce, grapes, and a drink).

My mom helped me get Sonja's body to the vet for cremation. Now Connor and I are home, it's a little too quiet, and I finally got a shower in. It'll be a long day for Calvin, as I won't see him until about 7:45, when he gets home from gymnastics practice (my mom is taking him today). Caleb has soccer practice, and the crazy Tuesdays/Thursdays begin....

Your sons are getting to be so grown and such wonderfully looking young men!

I am sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved dog...hopefully the new adventures of the day will make it easier for Calvin today!

I'll say it once again- I just can't believe how big the boys are. I hope that they have a great school year! Connor is going to love ruling the house with his brothers gone. :)
About Sonja-it's going to be hard for a while. I still think of Amalia everyday-and it hurts but it's a little easier to talk about her now. I think that cremation was a great choice. Your mom is so wonderful, my thoughts are with her too because I know how much she cared for her. My thoughts are with all of you.
Love,
Me
