Last day of Preschool!!!

Today was Savannah's last official day of preschool....SUCH an amazing school year for her and what a HUGE change in my lil girl!!! She was screaming crying and clinging to my leg for the first 2-3 weeks and now she runs in excited about the day and what they will do and sometimes even throws a fit when I am trying to pick her up!?!?! I am so thankful for the amazing teachers she had, Mrs.G was a godsend!! She took Savannah off my leg and under her wing the first day and Savannah clung to her for the longest time...Miss.Suze who helped her write her name for the very first time & kept encouraging her to do more writing and practice to get better...Mrs.Lauria who Savannah hit it off with right away and was always a "special friend" as Savannah called her! SUCH a wonderful experience to prepare her for kindergarten and get her out there into the world since before this year she was stuck at home with mom all the time!

She will go to the summer sessions they have which are 2 weeks long each and start after the 4th of July holiday! More like a summer camp than school but will be fun for her and keep her used to going to school thru the summer so this Fall isn't a BATTLE getting her on that bus daily for kindergarten!

WOW!?!?! Its been an entire week since I posted here...guess when I am not tied to the computer for work I dont find the time to blog either! Its been a GREAT break so far..I start taking kids next week, my PT 16 month old starts Monday and the 2 FT school age kiddos start Thursday so after that our house will be rockin and rollin for the summer but I am so excited!

AMAZED at how much I can get done while Emmie naps or while Savannah is at preschool, or when they are both nice to be able to take advantage of those times and do things other than sit on the computer and try to squeeze in all the time I can!

We have lots of fun activities planned and just enjoying the outdoors and summer weather with my own girls and these new kids as well! Gee....sure wish my oldest sister would come out and enjoy the time off I have left before I start up childcare.......HINT! HINT Paula since you are the ONLY one that even knows about this blog!

I QUIT!!!!

I gave my resignation this morning for my job @ ACS that I have had since Savannah was only 5 months old..Its been an amazing position that I am so grateful for but since Emmie came along its a huge struggle to meet hourly and quality requirements. I will start providing childcare on 6/22...a PT boy who is 16 months old for a few hours every afternoon, 2 FT older kids, 7 & 9, 2 PT older boys! I am excited and NERVOUS about this new venture but I have a feeling it will be great!! Instead of missing out on moments I will get paid to play with kids and enjoy my own kids at the same time!!!! A great fun-filled summer is ahead for us!

No big plans for this weekend...tomorrow is supposed to be AWESOME weather..low-mid 70s and sunny so we plan on outside time all day!!! Garage sales in the morning with Janine, still searching for a double jogger...especially if I get this childcare thing up and running I will need one for sure!

Girls are finally starting to feel better and sleep again, thank goodness!!! We got paperwork in the mail for Savannah's kindergarten orientation..amazing to me she will be in Kindergarten this Fall...where did the time go? Before I know it I will be putting Emerson on the bus!! YIKES!?!?! Luckily Savannah has several preschool friends in her class with Mrs.Bailey for a teacher who I have heard wonderful things about so I think it will be a great year for her! I do look forward to the girls growing up and being older..I see Paula with her girls and my neighbor Linda with her girls and I look forward to those times as they get older but these young moments are going so fast and I know its so hard now but I will miss them when they are all grown up...its happening faster than possible it seems!

Both girls are filling up on antibiotics now and hopefully will be sleeping better since I havent slept more than 3 hours for the past 5-6 nights!!! Mommy needs a VACA!!!!!!!!!

Praying for 1 more kid.......

OK, with a lead-in like that I know what you are all, we are not having anymore children...2 is PLENTY!!!!!!! I really want to be able to quit my job but we need my childcare is what I am looking into...I have 3 PT kids lined up to start end of June BUT if I do not have 1 FT kid I cannot afford to make this switch...I think this would be such a great thing for us and my girls would have much more playtime and I could stop missing all those moments I wont ever get back...I am tied to the computer for 25 hours a week and it is killing me since Emerson came along last summer...something has to keep your prayers going and fingers crossed I can get 1 FT kid lined up ASAP!!!

Garage Sale Success!!

We made about $150 on Saturday at the garage sale and managed to not spend more than $10 at neighbors sales!!! We ended up donating a bunch of leftovers since I said nothing comes back in once it goes out! This weekend it will be back to hitting sales instead of hosting one!
