Parents' Day Out!

Here's some of what's happening:

  • We have plane tickets for some members of the family to travel to the West Coast for Thanksgiving!
  • My husband has been kept busy fixing bathroom fans and car stuff.
  • C has yet another pool birthday party tonight.
  • School is haaaaard, but the kids have been enjoying their extracurriculars, too.  They both do CCD (or CCE) and fencing.  D is doing a short weekly robotics thing and C is doing Greek club, guitar, horse riding and this week she went to crochet club at school.  (The Greek club and the crochet are free and hence particularly interesting.)  That's this month.  Next month, who knows what we'll do.  
  • C is also gearing up for science fair.  
  • D is reading LOTR.
  • Baby T has been enjoying riding along with me and C out to the ranch where C does her therapeutic riding.  There are lots of toys in the office and Baby T has been a very good girl.
  • Baby T is starting parents' day out this week and she'll be doing one day a week.  It's a short day (5.5 hours) but a big plenty for an almost-2-year-old (Baby T's birthday is in less than three weeks).  I cleared this with the pediatrician, who says that children this age are less prone to serious illness.  If Baby T gets sick too much, we'll pull her out and try again later.  I really need the time to do clerical, though:  papers, emails, phone calls, etc.  The amount of paperwork that big kids generate is simply phenomenal.  I hope Baby T will manage--she handled church nursery very well last week, which gives me a lot of hope.  I think that the playground and being around other 2-year-olds will be particularly enjoyable for Baby T.  C started morning preschool at 3 and D started parents' day out at 3 (first one day, then two days), so this is an early start for our family. 
  • Baby T loves walking around with monkey and IKEA kitty. 
  • The weather is lovely!  Even the warm, rainy, overcast days are great!
