Quiet Time

For mommy that is :) !!! After 6 months of the kids being home with me (for the vast majority of the time), they have started a mother's day out program down the road from the house. I'm super excited about this for multiple reasons. First and foremost, it is at a church, so they have chapel, music and prayer time each day. Very happy for that! Second, the director of the school is our neighbor. It really is a relief to know someone I trust completely with my children is there with them and leading their teachers. She is an amazing lady and educator. Third would have to be the social interaction, especially for Bella. I've noticed that being around her brothers constantly has brought out many "baby" attributes in her attitude. My hope for each of them is this; Alex will start to walk and not be so attached to me, Zach will mellow in his level of aggression and willingness to share, and Bella will be prepared for Kindergarten come next September by learning the rules of a classroom. I'm still excited to be able to work with them each morning and the other days of the week. This will also give me some time to manage tasks around the house, which is so much harder than I expected with the 3 of them running around me.

Here are the happy/crying pictures of their first & second day:

Peace of the Lord be with you :)
