I love being able to stay at home with James and am thankful for all the time I get to spend with him. The first year has gone by so fast, and I know before I can believe it he will be all grown up and gone. However I have to admit I have been anxiously looking forward to Mother's Day Out. Last winter we decided that it would be good for the family for mom to have a little alone time each week. :) He only goes one day a week for a few hours, but it was so nice to be able to get things done around the house without feeling guilty for not playing with him. I don't know how I am going to let him go to kindergarten one day though. I was tearing up just saying goodbye for a morning! It's hard letting other people take care of your baby! I was really glad to see him when it was time to pick him up. Of course they told me he had cried a lot and not slept at all. Somehow I wasn't surprised. Unfortunately I did not nearly finish my to-do list, and I may have unrealistic expectations for what can be accomplished in a single morning but oh well. I'm already looking forward to next week!

|No I have not had a shower or put on makeup in this picture! :)|
|He has his own apple name tag and his own cubby. The elementary teacher in me got tickled about this.|
