Okay, so it's been an interesting week. The quints started preschool this past Monday and the girls started the Monday before that. We have had the run of "I-dont-feel-like-going-to-school-today" attitudes but for the most part everyone is adjusting nicely to their new classrooms. We are still doing therapy three times a week as has been the M.O. since about April. Today at church I got talked into joining a women's bible study starting in two weeks on Wednesday mornings - fitting in one more thing in an already packed schedule has proved to be a fine art. We have Monday mornings and Friday's free right now - but other then that - there is something going on every weekday morning, preschool is in the afternoons and elementary and middle school commitments come after school in the late afternoon.
Though it is a busy schedule, I am so thankful the kids all have something to do now that is their own! I was at the YMCA joining last week and the swim instructor even offered to teach the quints swim lessons in their own little class with no other students which I think would be wonderful for them to do - like Taylor joining girl scouts and Briana doing band and cross country.
Speaking of cross country, Briana went to her first meet last week and tho she didn't place - she was within the first 30-40 kids out of over 100 six graders. She ran a mile and a half in just under 15 mins. -- an awesome feat in my book any day and better then any times I had while running back in high school.
Have a Safe and Happy Labor Day Weekend - we are enjoying NOT having company and hanging out at home! ;-)
