First Day of Preschool, NOT

Well the twins were suppose to start preschool today. So, yesterday, I spent most of the day going to doctors' appointments. In Kentucky, a child must have a physical exam, got to the dentist and the eye doctor. I also had a WIC appointment. I got home a little later than usual 10 minutes and I knew my son would be waiting on me. He rides the bus home. Something told me last week to talk to him about what to do if I was not at home when he got here. We talked about it, but I have NEVER not been here, so I thought it pretty strange to need to talk to him about what to do. It was not even a week later and this came up. So, I am glad I listened and talked to him about what to do. The problem was school let out early because of a flood. Well the buildings roof caved in from the excessive rain we were having and they let out school early, so he had been here more like 45 minutes instead of 15! I felt really bad because it was pouring the rain! Nicholas is going to 9 in November and I think I am going to go ahead and get him a house key made because should that happen again, which I have no plans for it to happen again, but if it does at least he will not be in the rain! My twins go to preschool in the same school as my older son and today was suppose to be the first day of school, but since the school is in such bad shape they have closed for the rest of the week. My twins are so upset! They have been waiting a long time for school to start and they were looking forward to today. I was also looking forward to today. I would only have one child home and thought that would give me more of a chance to do the things that I have not been able to do with all of the kids home. Oh and on a side note, the twins are pretty much potty trained! I have been trying since they were about 2 1/2 and have had no luck. I told them if the went to the potty they would get to go to school like there big brother and that was all it took! Except maybe for some suckers. We went to transition day on Tuesday and they both went all day without any accidents! We have been accident free for 3 days! I am so proud of them! I know they are excited to go to school and while I am not excited to see them leave me. I am glad that they get the chance to go for 3 hours a day, 4 days a week to have fun and learn and be around other children! I will miss them, but I know they will have lots of FUN!

It is really hard to explain things like that to such small children. We are starting preschool too.

Are they back to school yet?
You are such a good mommy listening to the Spirit. I hope they got the school fixed up quick!
