Preschool Reports

Posted in Preschool by

Last week before the kids got out for Spring Break we got their reports from preschool.

Fynn
Fynn is such a sweet, gentle little guy! He concentrates so intently on what he is doing that we often have to get him to loosen up and give us a smile, which is always so cute!  We are still working with Fynn on communicating with us using his words.  He is doing better and we know that he probably talks more at home.  Fynn loves to participate in specials and is often the first one to do the motions.  We love having him in our class this year!

Sutton
We are so proud of Sutton and his progress.  His personality has really started to come out in our class and he is such a fun guy!  One thing we are working on are his gross motor skills.  Seems like they haven’t caught up with his body yet – he’s growing so fast!  No worries, this will get better over the summer.  Sutton is always happy to be here and enjoys school and his friends.  He is such a precious child and we are so glad that you are sharing him with us this year!

Can’t say I’m not proud!

Until next post…

Labor Day Weekend

Posted in Fynn, Preschool, Sutton by

Yay for a holiday weekend!  We need a long weekend to recover from our first day of preschool.

The boys got report cards for their first day.

Fynn

Fynn had a good day, not wonderful and didn’t like the lunch I packed.  Picky eater!!  And we suffered the consequences of no nap for the rest of the day!

Sutton

Sutton had a tough day, loved his lunch (little piggie!) and also didn’t take a nap.  Thankfully he pooped at school and not at home. 🙂

When I went in to pick them up I took the wagon!  LIFE SAVER!  The halls are INSANE CHAOS!  Luckily both boys were ready and excited to go for a wagon ride to the car.

When I first saw them they had their mouse (Sutton) and bear (Fynn) and both boys had pacifiers in their mouths.  The teacher said they pulled them out in the morning to help soothe the boys but I am not a fan of letting them have their pacifiers all day.  They are 19.5 months and only get them in their cribs for nap and bedtime.  I understand it was maybe needed for first day anxiety but I won’t let this become a habit.

Fynn was sound asleep in his carseat before I could even pull out of the parking lot.  They were BEYOND exhausted!  I tried to lay them down for a late nap when we got home but Sutton wouldn’t sleep and Fynn only slept about 20 minutes.  Made for an AWESOME evening.  (Where is the sarcasm font when you need it?)

Overall I think they will grow to love it and hopefully grow to love napping on their nap mats.

I spent the day trying to figure out what to do.  I haven’t had free time like that in…well I can’t remember!  I’ve worked since college and up until just a few weeks before the boys were born.  Those few weeks of freedom at home before their birth was spent resting and trying to breath with two babies in my belly.

Within one hour of my freedom I had grocery shopped and was sitting at home staring at the wall trying to figure out what to do.  I kept listening for a baby monitor and trying to be quiet but kept realizing I didn’t have to do that.  I got the rest of the laundry done, vacuumed, cleaned up, worked on my Stella & Dot business, blogged, went to Akins and ate lunch.

I kept looking at the clock and then at their schedule thinking about what the boys were doing at that exact moment.  I texted my husband when they were outside and said, “The boys are outside playing right now.”  He texted back, “Did you drive by?”  Haaaa!  He would think that I would do something like that.  But nope no drive-by.

I was so excited to see them though and it made my time with them MUCH more important.  I just can’t wait for them to be able to explain to me what they did at school.

Their class is made up of 8 kids – 4 boys and 4 girls.  My twins and my nephew (who is 12 weeks older to the day) make up 3 out of the 4 boys.  There is another set of twins – boy/girl twins in the class.  It will be fun to see them make friends with their classmates.  Maybe they will get a girlfriend! 😉

Overall, tough day but SO worth it and I can REALLY get used to having that time.  They go two mornings a week but one morning I will go help out in my husband’s chiropractic office and the other I get ALL TO MYSELF!

It truly is MOTHER’S DAY OUT!

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend!

Until next post…

Embrace the Camera – Embracing Preschool

Today was a BIG day in our house….boys’ first day at preschool.  We enrolled them way back in the spring but even having all that time to prepare didn’t make today any easier.

I often think of everything I could get done if I had a few hours a week to myself – grocery shop without chaos, run into the post office, go to the gym at a normal hour instead of 5:30 a.m., etc.  But, today I am sitting around listening to SILENCE and missing my little buddies.

They were so excited this morning….running around and HYPER!  Getting a photo was difficult.

Thinking about this day, the Mamarazzi in me wanted to capture all the moments..

Heading to the car, getting out of the car, going inside the school, getting to our classroom, etc.

But nope.  UTTER CHAOS!

Fynn wanted his backpack on then didn’t want to stop for anything, had to get inside the building.

Sutton on the other hand was bit of a challenge to get him in. Thankfully Daddy got to join us but next week is scaring me already.

Might have to take the wagon.

I know they will LOVE going to preschool and I’m excited for them to learn all kinds of new things but it will be an adjustment.

Love my buddies!

Until next post…
