So, beginning Thursday, she will be in school from 8:30 to 2:30 Monday through Thursday. (Fridays they all get out at 12:30!) That means she gets out of school right smack dab in the middle of
So right now, we're going to try carpooling with my neighbor where I take in the mornings, and she picks up in the afternoons. I hoping that this will still provide the time for Landon and Lillian to take their usual afternoon nap. But I have a feeling that we're going to still be swapping out days and mornings/afternoons. Then there are bound to be days where someone is sick and I have to get all the kids, or whatever else comes up during the year.
So, I'm pretty anxious about how that is going to turn out. Not to mention I have no idea what I'm going to do without her 5 days a week!! She is a HUGE help with Lillian and Landon. We are going to miss her terribly!! But I have a feeling a "different Landon" is going to come out. I'm looking forward to spending more time with him without his big sister. She can really drive the situation (sometimes good and sometimes bad) and he just goes along without even thinking. It'll be interesting what personality traits come out when he is now the oldest one still at home with me everyday. So, I'm sure we'll be getting the Growing Kids God's Way curriculum out and "spot training" in areas that I've overlooked so far. Yippee!!
No, seriously, this is new territory for me. My first baby is scooting out of the nest. Luckily, I know that she is in incredible hands! Oh, and I can go up and visit pretty much any time I want! hehe :-) It's only .8 miles down the road!
