Our fall routine is just about into full swing. Preschool orientation was this morning so we all had to be out the door just before 8am. We had time to spare... I feel like a veteran! The kids all had a hot breakfast, teeth brushed, a few chores done, lunches packed and shoes on in plenty of time. It was a good feeling!
Eli was beyond excited to see what preschool was going to be like. Mimi and Papa were going to bring him to orientation since I was otherwise involved. He was a little shy, but liked having all the kids around. Once the routine of the classroom gets established I think he is going to thrive! He is very excited to the a big kid going to preschool. Mimi made the mistake of asking him if he was excited to go to school. He said "No. I'm excited to go to PRESCHOOL." Silly Mimi.
I am feeling really good about this upcoming year. I love that Eli will be with me all day. My classroom looks great. I extended it out a bit, so it is larger than previous years. That makes a HUGE difference. I just love it. The new set up went over well with the kids and parents too.
Aaron has been going to school everyday this week, getting his classroom ready. Kids start on Tuesday. So summer is really over. I've enjoyed it, but I really do love the fall. Most of our days now are in the 70's, the nights get really cool, it just feels good. And I love the routine. I think that is why I'm good at preschool... it is a lot of routine, and I like that. I do enjoy me break from routine, but I'm usually glad to get back at it.
We are content. School for Hannah and Isaac is great. They love it and I love that they love it.
