Happy New Year!! I need to add a note to this blog…I wrote it 4-months ago but was unable to publish it as we were in the process of updating and revamping our website. So here it is 4-months later and I am able to upload it. It is still relevant; however as my next blog will reveal a lot has changed in 4-months! Enjoy and thanks for bearing with me as I attempt to blog!!
We’ve received so many requests to start blogging about our ranch, the cows, our lives, etc…but there hasn’t been the time, nor could I come up with any interesting material. So I set my sights on today, my first day in 8-years of mothering where both our kiddos are in elementary school. I knew I’d be sad and I knew I’d have time, so here goes…
…Today I dropped off our baby at kindergarten. It’s a weird feeling; to be happy and sad all at the same time…no one’s shadowing me or asking for anything. I held it together until I reached the ranch office. I looked at my hubby, he said “did you cry?” and the tears started coming. Our daughter has been excited to start kindergarten all summer and the excitement did not dissipate until the 30-minute ride into school. Her stomach started to hurt and she said she was “feeling a little nervous mama”. Knowing our girl, she will do great in school, have lots of fun and make lots friends…but wow it’s hard to leave your baby at kindergarten.
Our son is a 3rd grader, so he’s a big guy at school, he didn’t need me to walk him to the classroom; he told me he would check on his little sister and our friend’s son at lunch time and make sure they were ok. The big news of 3rd grade is he gets to go to the “big kid” morning recess. I’m not sure where the time goes; it was just yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital, wasn’t it?
This being my first blog, it feels a little disjointed, but then I figured, that makes sense, because our daily lives are a little disjointed. Leave me comments and let me know what you want to see in a blog from Open Space Meats. We are happy to invite you into our crazy, joyous slice of heaven that we call home and work!
