This past Thursday (August 19th) Caleb started his first day of 1st grade. This year school is starting at 7:30 instead of 8:00 due to combining bus routes to save some money. I got him up at 6:00 and he did pretty well, not too sleepy and was ready to eat a good breakfast (banana bread and oj) and then did his chores, got dressed and did a devotional with me. I was able to leave Ariel at home with Dan so I could take him into his class, he was a little nervous but once he saw a few kids that he had in his class room from last year, the nerves disappeared!
I will be watching a friend of ours little girl (Malea) after school each day. So, I picked Caleb and Malea up from school and they came home, had snacks and played a bit. I could tell that Caleb was tired. He kept crying whenever Malea wouldn't play with him. I layed him down for about 30 minutes and then he got up and his attitude was a bit bettter. I am sure it will take some adjustment having Malea here everyday but I am sure after a few weeks we will have a schedule down and Malea will just fit right in!
I am an outgoing and caring mother of two. Caleb is seven and a half and is in second grade this year. Ariel is five and has such a precious soul! I have been married for 10 years to my wonderful husband, Dan. Dan works hard as a self employed Landscape Architect (ebenders.com)so that I have the ability to stay home with the kids. I have a passion for living my life for Christ. I am an avid digital scrapbooker and painter and enjoy learning new things about the creative aspects of art and architecture. I have also started my own photography business and you can view my website by going to katiecole.com!
