It's fall and we are all settling into the new rhythm of the school year. The Boy is in preschool every day from 8 a.m. until 11:30 and on Mondays and Wednesdays until 2:30 p.m. Despite the fact that half his class has transferred into a new classroom because his teacher is new at the Montessori method, he loves preschool. He's also taking an arts & crafts class at the park district on Friday afternoons. Mama missed the registration boat for soccer.
The Girl is in Mother's Day Out on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Like her brother, she loves school. She is upset on days that The Boy goes, but she does not. She and I are also taking a Jammin' with Julie class on Friday mornings while The Boy is in school.
The Baby comes with us to Jam with Julie, but otherwise is unscheduled. He is sitting up already and is in that stage just before crawling -- he scoots backward, which frustrates him as he moves further away from the toy he'd like to grab. He just started eating table food as well; unlike his siblings, he likes jarred baby food. He knows what to do with the spoon and helps me move it into his mouth if I do not offer the spoon fast enough for him.
