Mornings. Good mornings.

I am not a morning person, but I guess I will become one now. I am used to my kids going to preschool which started at 9am. We'd get up at 8 and get ready and eventually make our way there. Andrew's elementary school starts at 7:35 so I get up around 6:15 and get him up around 6:30. I got up this morning and got Andrew up and off to school. I am back home now and Mike, Tracy and Loren are still asleep. Its all quiet and I have some alone time. The bike ride to school helps me to wake up. Maybe this morning thing isnt so bad after all.

I've never really been able to sleep in, unless I'm really tired or went to bed late. I do like the mornings though. It's quiet and peaceful. I'm usually not tired and I have time to think about random stuff. It puts me in a really good mood.

But all that changes once I walk out the front door...

Thank goodness Mike is still home when you have to take him so you don't have to get all the kids up :) That would suck.

I basically ordered mike to not travel the first week of school so I could start getting the routine down. I will have to take all three in the morning when he is out of town which lately has been fairly often. bleh.

I hope this cycle ends for you soon. You seem to handle it pretty well when he's gone, though. I can barely entertain my kids til Rex gets home for dinner!

So, how do you pick him up after school if he rides his bike to school? Do you ride your bike back to school and ride home with him? What about your other kids?

I ride back home after dropping him off. Then when its time to pick him up I have a trailer I hook to my bike that I put Tracy and Loren in to ride back to school and ride home with him. In mornings when Mike is out of town I will have to use the trailer in the morning too and take the sleepy girls with me. If something happens and its pouring or something in the afternoon when its time to pick him up I can always drive up there and just put his bike in the back of the car.
