forward to this all summer long. I hope it meets her expectations. Here is a
photo of her on the first day. She is going in the afternoons from 12:10 to 2:40.
It is a nice break for me as the noise level in the house drops by about 75%.
Jack misses her right when she leaves, and periodically when she is gone says
"I miss Violet, I want to go to school too". But we have been able to spend time
just the two of us (sort of) as the babies are starting to settle into a regular nap pattern - some may call it a "schedule".
Ron has been helpful taking her when he can, working at the nearby coffee shop for the duration and running her home. It sure is easier when I don't have to schlep all five of them to drop her off.
Next year both Violet and Jack can go - whoohoo!

We have been a little busy around here.
It seems like every day I think about what new pictures or updates that I'm going to go home and post. However, by the time I get home and Erin and I calm the pack, feed and clean Jack and V, clean up, put big kids to bed, feed and hold babies, that getting on the computer is the last thing on our minds (except for my late night fantasy football ramblings but that's a whole different thing).
Anyway, as you might imagine taking care of my miniature basketball team has consumed our lives for the last 2 months. Here is a video that sums life up for the Payne parents.
