Not gonna’ lie. I was pretty proud of myself for pulling this off in 30 minutes: kids’ breakfast, kids’ snacks for school, my weighed out breakfast, morning coffee, and my strawberries snack. The kitchen did NOT look this organized while this was all going down, though.

I picked out her first day of drop-off playgroup dress, she picked out the sweater. Her hairdo, though?

image

This is how excited she was about the whole thing.

Love started over at the same place Bode’s been going to for the last two years, so they start today together. Her from 9-11, him from 11:30-2. That means that on Thursdays, I get 1-on-1 time with each of them, which I am PSYCHED about. I can’t remember the last time I had scheduled time with just Bode. I don’t even know what we’ll do, but it’s going to be epic 🙂

This was after about 5 minutes of me trying to get the two of them looking at me at the same time…while CFNE members were watching me start to melt down in the parking lot. Very professional.

Their response to, “SMILE!”

Brace yourselves for a Harley Love montage.

Maya and her girlfriends went to breakfast at the 50’s Diner before school today.

Another from Maya. I have NO idea what that is, but I’m more concerned with this chick’s nail polish job.

The start of our 3 hour bike ride to go pick up Bode from playgroup…and, some adventures on the way home.

Miss Jill running Bode’s class through some end of the day songs 🙂

Pit stop on the way home at the Speen Street playground.

My FT call with Jonezy from his Dad’s office at Nobles.

image

We lost our connection, so I called him back. This is the image that came up on the screen when he answered.

FINALLY got ahold of this little queen. I asked her when I’d see her face again. She said, “Tomorrow morning I’ll be at the gym SHARP!” I asked her if there was supposed to be a time attached to that “SHARP” or if she was just going to actually show up “sharp”.

image

MISSED him. When Love walked into the gym this afternoon, she came up to me and said, “Is Harry here?” What IS that?

image

Just hanging out with the boys. Naked.

image

Found this little nugget in my car on my way home from Harry 🙂 Can’t even TELL you how psyched I was to have that for the ride home. Thanks, buddy!

image

Amen.

Maya sent me this picture she took of Jonah saying, “You come to my school, I stalk you.” YESSSS.

Maya sent me this picture today.  She randomly spotted Jonah in this room at some point during the school day over at Nobles.  The thought of this whole little scene almost brought tears to my eyes.

This is why I am so unbelievably grateful to have Jonah at that school.

Jonah was just one of those kids that was in the wrong school system before this year.  He had some friends (and, still remains close with some of them), he sort of got involved in some activities, and he just went through his day without finding anything that he was really interested in.

Over the course of the last year or so when we were trying to figure out if Nobles was the right place for him or not, this image is what I pictured him doing when he got there.

Listen, I’m not sitting here thinking he’s going to be the next Eddie Vedder or anything just because he’s got an electric guitar in his arms.  But, I am thinking that he’s found a place where he can tap into this creative, artistic, fantastically outrageous brain that lives in his head.

This kid loves all of the stuff that we typically avoid: computers, movies, dub-step music, making music videos, editing film and photos…and, just technology in general.

While I think our town school system is good for a lot of kids in different ways, I don’t think it’s good for him.

There’s just a certain level of comfort that a parent finds when they feel like their kid is finally in the right place, especially when you feel like they’ve been in the wrong place for so long.

It’s a little bittersweet for me, though.  When he was here in Natick, he was under my wing for the better portion of every day.  And, while I’m so glad that he’s at Nobles with his Dad and his sister all day, I do get worried that I’ll be left out a little.  I felt like that for years with Maya, and I am scared that I’ll go through that whole long stretch all over again with this little guy who’s been my buddy up until this point in his life.

All I can say is thank God for FaceTime.
