OK, so as most of you know I am CRAZY when it comes to my family! I tend to go completely insane over my kids especially when it comes to school. So keep this in mind and have a little sympathy for me would you? I am extremely selfish and love my time with them. So, one of my least favorite times of the year is BACK to school. Sure the shopping and new clothes are great but, the rest just stinks. Like I have said before I don't like change and neither do my kids. Poor Trav just sits back and tries to sooth his crazy emotionally whacked out wife during this hard time, but this year has been over the TOP!!! First of all I am in uncharted territory, and in my book that is reason enough to freak out.

So yesterday was a big day for us...... 9 am go to Brayden's school registration. Have any of you signed your kids up for swimming lessons and had to wait like 3 hrs in a sea of crazy moms?? Well this was worse. First you had to wait in a line to get your schedule... then to get your lunch stuff figured out... then for music stuff... then for t-shirts, a green thing, and locker info (yes I did say LOCKER)... then they had to get their picture taken for student ID...and last but not least busing info (which I am still on the fence about). While we were there we learned that there are OVER 790 kids for 5th and 6th grade.With 14 6th grade classes. SMALL town my big fat rear end!!! I tried to not look terrified but it was written all over both of our faces. So again I had to lie (I am turning into a liar, but hopefully not) I told Brayd with that many kids he is going to have TONS of new friends, how could he not? So with that we left feeling very small. (and afraid)

On to our next adventure, his 12 year old check up. Brayden was upset because his friend told him that at this appointment they pulled down your pants and check your stuff. GREAT this is something neither one of us are ready for!!!! How did this happen just the other day he was in here we are sweaty palms and pounding chest going to his big boy check up. Thank fully we averted the whole pants thing and shots, our lucky day indeed! Because he is going into 6th grade (thank goodness for a Sept birthday) he doesn't need any of that until next year. You can bet your bottom dollar that Trav will be the lucky winner for that trip, and I will be home eating bon bons and trying to figure out just where the time has gone.

So after all that trauma it was nice to go relax in our old neighborhood for a few hours while waiting to take the little miss to clogging. It is so nice to have Friends who will let you hang out and feed you dinner. We played musical houses going from one friend to the next. It was a blast, can't wait for next week! (I will need it too. It will be the first day of school for us, perhaps there will be bon bons? or at least Oreos)

Then off to help grandma and home which was the last traumatic thing of our very long day! Let’s just say I HATE driving that canyon at night. It took me forever to get home and I was sure I was going to plow a deer and kill my poor innocent kids in the back. I was sure glad to make it safe, and Trav was quite proud of my bravery :)
OK, I had some pictures from this eventful day, but the camera is no where to be found. I am hoping it will show up soon. So no pictures, you will just have to use your imagination on this one. Sorry!

That does sound like a huge school change for Brayden. And you're still driving home (tell me when it's not 'home' anymore) for clogging? That is some dedication!

So not looking forward to the Big Boy checkup for us in a few years!
