I'm so passionate about the things I'm doing in the city, and I love what I'm doing. More on that another time.
But there's really only TWO "big things" in my life.
So here's what's big around here...
|first day of preschool|
My baby boy has now started preschool!
We were going to begin next fall, but the preschool we chose thought it best that Jameson started getting used to the routine of school now with a month left to go in the school year.
And he is just eating it UP. He LOVES his school. In the first few days, he's already made two friends that he talks about all the time. I can tell he is being so stimulated educationally, and it's exciting to see him grow and mature into this phase of life. The preschool director told me he's so pleasant and super smart.
But as you know, preschool is exhausting work.
Especially when you've got to get home to have lightsaber battles.
|I love these two!|
Caroline is having an amazing school year in 3rd grade. She continues to be at the top of her class academically though we've now entered the point of girl drama with a few friends. I guess that's just part of the growing process.
She's doing an after-school math club once a week, gymnastics once a week, and playing outside in the yard with neighborhood kids almost every other waking minute. This is my social BUTTERFLY.
She just lost her 16th tooth. (she's counting)
And can you believe, the Tooth Fairy forgot to come the night she placed her tooth out and wrote a letter! (#parenthoodfailure)
The next evening, Caroline came up to me, "Mom, I'm just gonna put this in your room so you won't forget again."
|*SO* happy the recorders came home|
But y'all know my Caroline. She's an excellent musician.
So thankfully, it didn't take too long before all the ear-piercing shrieks turned into controlled, decipherable notes.
|her first persuasive essay|
And you know what? I'm not the only one thinking about "big things."
When other classmates were writing persuasive essays about "why we should have a class pet" or "why we should get an ice cream party," my sweet girl decided to write "Why We Should Help the Homeless."
I could not be a more proud mama.
