I really...

... want to chicken out.  Tomorrow is the big day.  The first time the kids have ever been kept by strangers.  They are off to "school" tomorrow.  Oh how I hope Jon Kent doesn't cry.. heck I hope *I* don't cry.  Goodness.  I'm more nervous than they are.  They are excited and talk about it all the time.  I, on the other hand, can't stop thinking about them needing something and not getting it.  I won't be there to hold their hands or pick them up if they fall.  Goodness.  BUT.. I am excited for the day to myself.. or at least to myself with Nathan.  We are going grocery shopping (if it's not raining) after we drop the olders off.  Then it's home to do the housework in peace and play.  Nap time will be quiet that is for sure.  Kent will get off at 2pm and I guess we'll all go to pick the olders up at 3pm.  I'm hoping when we do they will still be excited about school.  If not, well.. there is always homeschooling....

Don't worry, Jon Kent won't let you down.  He will cry.  But he will get over it.
They will do fine and love it.  Zoey will give him that oh my goodness look and all will be well.  It will go great and they will expand their circle of friends.
