Carson let Lexi borrow his backpack, so that she could be a big girl too. Kyle took the morning off so that he could be there for their big day. I was sooo grateful for that!!
We were all off to a great start, but I felt a lump in my throat as soon as we got to the classroom. Kylie did too, because as soon as the teacher told the kids to say goodbye to their parents, she became very upset. I held it all in until I got around the corner in the hall, and then I lost it too. I felt so bad having to leave her when she was scared like that. Not to mention I just felt so sad that my little side kicks are now in school. I was also so excited for them. It was just a mixture of emotions. So again, thank goodness Kyle and Lexi were there to help me out! Kylie actually cried everyday of that first week. I got teary eyed the second day too, but I was good after that. She did fine from the second week on. I CAN'T believe how much they are learning and how smart they are!!!
I couldn't be more proud of these little cuties!
Kyle was feeling pretty bad about the traumatic morning too, so he asked us to meet him for lunch after I picked the kids up from school. That made things much better!
We went to Eastern Idaho the following weekend to visit Kyle's family and watch the BSU game. I got to go out with my BBH (Melissa) the night before we left. It was a much needed night out, we got our nails done and laughed (uncontrollably) like always!! The next morning we took off early so that we could see the hot air balloons on our way out. They were amazing. They have so many different shapes and colors. Really beautiful. The rocket ship was one of our favorites.
It is always fun to see and ride the horse's in Kyle's parent's backyard
and go for a spin on the four wheeler too
and play with cousins of course!
