A little stroll down memory lane..........
Last year!!!!!!! LOOK HOW YOUNG THEY WERE!!!! They're growing too fast!!!
And now, pics from this year!!!
Best family pic I could get with my wonky tripod. And the sun was shining in my face! ;-)
And Lillian clearly appears inconvenienced.
Lillian, Rhodes and I are MOST DEFINITELY going to have to come up with our own routine. I was thrown for a loop yesterday (not to mention BORED - yes BORED without the 2 oldest!) with naps, errands, carpool - it may take a few days to sort through which daily routine works best for us.
The biggest challenge is nap time. They still NEED a nap everyday (Rhodes still should take 2), and until yesterday, it was from 1:00 to 3:00....or so! Now school gets out at 2:30 and I can't decide to put them down before/after or for Rhodes BOTH!
I think things will pick back up after Labor Day (library, small groups, etc) and it will give our week a nice flow. And then they gym of course! I'm starting a new Horizontal Conditioning class at the Y. You're basically in a plank for an hour!!! But it seems to give amazing results - everyone in the class looks GREAT and the teacher/class has a huge following! I'm just ready to try something NEW!
Hopefully the upcoming change of season will bring other nice changes. I think a transition will be refreshing! I'm already transition into having 2 kids in school and 2 toddlers!!! It'll be weird not to have a baby around or be pregnant!
The kids, from what I can tell, had a great first day of school. I only get little bits and pieces from their day. I heard most about the "stoplight" or discipline chart. :-) We shall see how that unfolds throughout the year!
Here's to a good 2nd grade and kindergarten year!!!!!!!!!
