First Day of School

Today was the first day of school for Ben and Tommy.  Technically my first day with students is tomorrow, though I've been at school for over a week now.

I know I should have a cute picture of the boys getting ready to go to school, but that just wasn't our reality today.  Reality was that we aimed to leave the house at 7:15 and instead left at 7:25.  We packed bags last night but still needed a few last minute things this morning.  And those things needed to be labeled.  Then we needed to feed and dress the boys and ourselves, let the dog out, pack the car, etc. 
We were all set to go, and then Chris lifted Ben into his carseat and realized that he had pooped his pants.  No time to change!!!  Onward to school!  So, we dropped off Tommy first.  He was easy peasy since he doesn't really care who is holding him as long as he or she is snuggly and talking to him and/or giving him a bottle.  Then we took Ben down the hall to his new classroom and new teacher.  Unloaded his things, shook hands with the teacher, got Ben settled and out the door.  And, oh yeah, by the way new teacher,
Chris: "he's got a poop in his diaper.  Sorry about that.  Want me to change him?" 
Teacher: "oh, no, don't worry about it.  I can do it."  ~~~Insert teacher eye roll here~~~

We just lost points there!! 

Chris and I both speed off to work and there ya go.  We didn't get any phone calls during the day and pick up went well.  So, overall we will call it a success!

I'll try again tomorrow morning for a picture and pretend it was the first day of school.  In the mean time here are some pics from the last few days:

Asleep in the car.  The shades stayed on almost all day.

Silly Gooses ; )

If you ever lose Ben at CVS, this is where you will find him.
