Back into the swing of things...

Today was the first day back to school for the kids. It was rough getting up this morning - Mallory has been kind and let us sleep in more than we're used to over the break :) The house is back to usual (with the exception of the tree in Mallory's room) and looks pretty bare as it always does after Christmas!

A few updates on the kiddos -

Brady - Although I wouldn't say he was thrilled to go back to school, he didn't complain either. Of course, he gets up way before school starts anyway, so there was no adjustment for him this morning! Unfortunately, his BFF Zack is moving to St. Louis next week, so they are spending some quality time together in the next few days. We signed Brady up for baseball again, and tryouts are coming up this month. He is still enjoying karate, his new pet Hermie, his bb gun, and his video games :)

Drew - was the most excited about returning to school today... to see his Andrews, of course! Also not surprising was the fact that he fell asleep in the car this afternoon and stayed asleep for quite a while after we got home. He's been having fun playing with Stinky the garbage truck and his new Diego wii game. He also spends a LOT of time watching Brady play his ds... have you seen the tiny screen on that thing? lol But, it makes him happy, so who am I to argue?

Mallory - was NOT pleased to be dropped off at school today. She started telling me yesterday she wasn't going to school. I had to pick her up to get her into the classroom, and then her teacher had to pry her off me (which is a first!). Of course, once I left, she was fine within a few minutes. She loves her new Dora dollhouse (actually, the figures more than the house), and her favorite thing to do is make the different characters sit on the potty. Why she would choose that of all things is beyond me! She was upset with me about putting all the christmas stuff away, esp. her "big Dora book." She has turned into quite the t.v. junkie and is constantly asking to watch Dora (sometimes Mickey Mouse is a suitable alternative).

Hope you're having a good week!
