We have been having a lot of fun the last week! I took a few days off work to stay with the kids while all the care was closed down for cleaning and professional development. The first day of school is Wednesday and when it starts, Ava will be starting KINDERGARTEN and Reed will be be starting PRESCHOOL! Say WHAT?!!
I’m also going to attempt to catch up on some stuff we’ve done since we’ve been back from the beach!
The week after we got home, I went to drop Reed off at school on Thursday morning. It had stormed the day before, and when we got there, there was no electricity! So, I took Reed down the street with me to work for a bit while we waited on our summer sitter to come get him. He had fun “working” for me.
Alot of Friday evenings, Ava comes and lays down in my bed with me. Zach likes to stay up and catch up on some of his shows, so Ava and I lay down and we either watch a movie or she goes to sleep while I read. One Friday evening we let Reed join us and I think all parties were pretty content.
Reed started at the early childhood center at our school when he was 3 months old. August 1st was his last day there. The love he received while he was there was more than a mom could ever have prayed for. He LOVED it and when we talk about preschool, he says he is not going and just wants to stay in his old class. I think Wednesday will be a shock. :(
Last week on our days off, we spent one day in NWA with one of my best friends. Her talented hubby had built this amazing plane swing and Reed LOVED it! Getting to spend several uninterrupted hours with my wonderful friend (the longest we’ve seen each other since she moved almost a year ago), was soooooooooooooooooo good for my soul. It was a great day!
Last week was slightly rough though, for Zach certainly, because he was leaving for work before 8:00 and coming home well after 8:00. Tuesday night the kids tried to wait up for him but both fell asleep in the living room before he got home.
We’ve definitely had some busy but fun last couple of weeks. We are going to squeeze in as much fun as we can the next two days before we are back to it full time!!!!
