Busy Fall

It's hard to believe that fall is upon us...BUT for the first time since I've had children, I can actually say that I look forward to returning to the classroom. So much change happens at the beginning of a school year and the last 3 years have been a difficult transition for our family. This year already feels so different as I am completely satisfied with the fact that both children will be at Wildflower Montessori school. We changed Landry Grace's plans last Monday when I was panicked that we would not find a babysitter in time to keep her on M/F's. I made a few calls last Monday and that afternoon we had paperwork for WMS. On Wednesday I had a call about a potential babysitter for M/F (she was enrolled in Trinity MDO for T/W/TH) but decided she would be better off with the 5 day a week program due to my schedule and Matt being gone during the fall.
School starts up next week for the kids and tomorrow for myself. In addition to that Landry Grace is taking dance on Monday afternoons and Jake is taking gymnastics on Monday evenings. He started last week and did fine until the last 10 minutes when he saw MAMA watching him. This week he informed me he wants me to just drop him off and leave....ok then!
LG is also doing Kindermusik on Tuesday evenings. She loves music and for me to sing to her, so I thought it would be something fun for us to do together. Then you add Sunday night kids choir(which I am thrilled they added a class for 2 and 3 year olds) and Wednesday night activities at church and you have a FULL schedule. It is fun that Jake and LG are old enough for all these activities but the question is are we ready?? Sure we are.

Jake showing me some acrobatic skills on the pouring rain...didn't have any from gymnastics so this pic will have to do!
One last swim in the baby pool before mom goes back to work full time!
And as for LG and her big girl bed....she has done great! I think we waited until she was old enough to understand and we are able to reason with her as to not get out of bed. On Thursday I was busy doing something and when I went to find her, could not. This is where I found bed sacked out.
And this morning was promotion Sunday at church. LG is so excited that she is now in the 2 year old room and Jake in the 3 year old. We are blessed with wonderful teachers as well as a great church family. I took this pic with the automatic timer on my camera and was pretty impressed with it!

Matt is home keeping the kids this week while I go back to school and just informed that he is going to take the kids to Chuck E Cheese tomorrow. That's a pretty good daddy for ya! Be back soon.
