First day of school and work!

Well, as I said I got everything ready the night before to ensure a smooth morning, but as Kevin was following me to daycare there was a cop car with its lights on blocking the only road I know to go down to get to Avery's school. There were no detour signs so I turn around and try to go a different direction and that didn't help. We ended up going through a neighborhood we had never been through before and taking 30 minutes to get to Avery's school (a trip that should take no more than 10 minutes). We get to her school and I am walking Kevin through all the things we do when we drop her off. We get in Avery's class and all the kids were crying and I mean screaming crying. I laid sweet Avery in her crib and she just looks up and smiles at us. I just turned and walked out the door not really even saying 'bye' because I couldn't stop the tears. They just poured out and didn't stop for awhile. The entire drive to work I was balling! I then had to get myself together in the car and a single thought of poor little Avery just brought on more tears. I finally made it into work with swollen eyes. I wonder what goes through peoples' minds as they are passing me down the hall. As for my work day, it was great. Of course, there was not a whole lot to do the first day of being gone for three months except reconnet my system to the network and clear out the thousand emails I had over that time span. I went to visit Avery over lunch. When I showed up she was in her crib crying. A real tear was running down her sweet little cheek! It broke my heart; however, she had just woken up from a really long nap and was hungry. As soon as I picked her up, she smiled at me! I left work early to get her and soaked up every bit of time we had together this evening. I just put her down and hopefully she will sleep through the night so I can get some rest after a long day. Here are Avery's first day of Daycare pics. Notice how tired I look...I couldn't go to sleep last night because I was really anxious!
