Where does the time go?! It's been over 4 months since I blogged. This working mom stuff ain't no joke! I need about 6 more hours in each day and I *might* get to the bottom of my to-do list. A half million things have crossed my mind that I need to blog about and of course I can't remember any of them right now.
Let's just dive in with a generic "What Have We Been Up To" post.
We did a family costume theme this year. I'm trying to get away with it as long as I can. The whole things was inspired by Ainsley's hair - she was, of course, Orphan Annie. Jeremy was Daddy Warbucks, Ben was Punjab and I was Miss Hannigan. The kids did great trick-or-treating - I was super impressed.
We've also been working on re-doing the kid's bedrooms. We just split them up into their own rooms and slowly decorating their "big kid rooms." Here's a sneak peak of Ben's Superhero Room!
Ben started preschool last month. He qualified to start as soon as he was three because he technically qualifies for special education services because of his lack of fine and gross motor skills because of the CP. We couldn't be more thrilled about this! He is absolutely loving school - he gets to ride a school bus - and an additional year of preschool can only help him.
There's no down side. Well, except maybe that Ainsley doesn't get to go and she's pretty bummed about that. But she did get a little one-on-one time because of it.
Oh! And she got to start dance lessons!
We ran the Des Moines Half Marathon again this year. I didn't quite make the time goal I had in mind but I did PR so I'll take it!
I'm excited to start blogging again and really hope to make an effort and stick to it. It's like free therapy.
