Home Alone

Wow, it's been a long time since I posted. I kind of figured I wouldn't be the best at this blogging thing.

So the kids all started school again. Andrea is a sophomore, Sophia is in 5th grade and Nadia is in 1st! So... yesterday was my very first day home all alone all day. I've been looking forward to it for years, thinking of how nice it would be to work uninterrupted, not having to stop every few minutes to get snacks, put toys together, etc, etc. But, I think I actually just felt kind of weird and lonely! In fact, I ended up going to meet Nadia for lunch to break up the day! She was happy to see me though, so that was fun.

Lunch with the first graders was so cute! They are all so little. My favorite quote from that was: "Hi Nadia's Mom! My name is Stephen, but you can call me Snake." Ha!! Where did that come from?

Anyway, even though I think it's going to take some getting used to, I think I will start to really like being able to get all my work done before everyone comes home in the afternoon. Yesterday kind of made me realize what a challenge it has actually been to work and take care of kids at the same time. I got accustomed to it, but it definitely isn't an easy thing.

Here's a video I've been meaning to upload since May:

It's from Nadia's kindergarten program. She had so much fun at this program. I think that's evident in the video.
