We've had a busy week here at the Mommy Matters household. Gabriella completed her first week of kindergarten, although just barely. Friday was a tough day for her - apparently she took a tumble on the playground during first recess and never quite recovered, and even took a 30 minute nap during rest time. She ended up with a bit of a fever that evening, but made a quick recovery in time for a friend's birthday party the next day, at which she got to fullfill a lifelong wish. She doesn't like soccer, but we've convinced her to keep trying, and it helps that her very best friend Jake is on her team.
Alex completed his first week of preschool (only two days, but still an accomplishment for a 3 year old I'd say). No accidents, he made playdough, and it looks like he will be featured in our local newspaper in an article about his school. They picked the right boy for the job!
I promised Ella a "lazy day" today, and she is loving that concept. She had her "lazy breakfast" (hard boiled eggs, toast with jam, and cheese), she watched some "lazy TV", and is now enjoying a "lazy morning" outside with her
I really didn't know that having my kids away from me would require so much work and running around on my part. I'm exhausted, and am enjoying a "lazy day" of my own, sitting here finishing up an excellent cup of tea bonding with my laptop. I've got the backdoor open so I can watch the kids, and the air has a definate autumn quality about it. The crisp clear late morning with the clouds floating high over the grey-blue mountains has my mind racing with thoughts of colored leaves, and homemade pumpkin bread, and early morning frosts. Ahhhh - the best time of the year.
