Quick Update and Weekend Plans!

Daniel's been doing great at the new daycare!! He went right in the first two mornings and even had a little girl who stood by him when I left the first day. He did not nap on day one, but laid quietly. Day two he napped like a champ! He even blew his teacher a kiss when I picked him up. Both days he was very happy to see me when I picked him up and boy was he tired. He almost fell asleep eating his dinner on day one! This morning was a tad different. The weather here has changed due to the storm coming in and I can't help but think that is part of it. When we walked in there were 4 other children fussing - all boys. The last two mornings there had not been a single fuss when I walked in. Daniel looked at them gave me a hug then said "Home, Mama, Home". I wanted to take him home, but the teacher came right over and picked him up and of course he did the usual "Mama, Mama" and point at me, but then she took him to some toys and even though he was still crying I was able to leave. I'll be the silver blur on the road driving a thousand miles an hour this afternoon to pick him up. Today is also the day I get to check Daniel's artwork folder! Since I dropped him off Tuesday morning I have been wanting to check this folder. The teacher told me to check it every Thursday before we leave as it will have the work from the week. Can I check it anytime I want - you betcha, but since they sometimes hang things for the week she said my best bet was to wait until his last day there each week. I am just anxious to have my first artwork (outside of what we do at home)!! I can't wait to plaster more on our refrigerator!

In other news - we are going to the beach this weekend!! Now, we know there is a storm coming, but we are going anyway. Troy has been working down in Hampton so Daniel and I are driving up tomorrow morning after Chat and Play at the library and spending a couple of nights. We hope to be able to at least walk on the beach with Daniel and we also plan to go to the aquarium there and maybe a few other places. This will be Daniel's first trip away from home overnight since we've returned from Russia. I can't wait - we all need to relax and enjoy each other this weekend.

Hopefully some fun pictures Monday!!

Sounds like Daniel is adjusting well to daycare. Before you know it, he will just give you a kiss goodbye and be off playing with the other kids. The weekend sounds like fun. I wish we lived close enough to walk on a beach.

That's great that the new daycare is going well! I bet you will have that artwork everywhere! I know I would! :)

Have a great relaxing weekend at the beach!

Artwork is so special. It is a great way to see your child grow. I try and save a digital gallery of all the girl's creations. It would be impossible to save all the originals. They are way too industrious of artists. Have fun at the beach!

It sounds like things are going well there---hooray! I hope that you all have an awesome weekend and get some much needed rest and relaxation. And hooray for Crayons and coloring--God certainly knew what he was doing when he created them! Much love!

Glad Daniel is doing so well at daycare. It sounds like he is really enjoying his time there.

Have fun this weekend. Our little one didn't sleep the one night we were away from home (she went back to her usual rocking habits), so don't be alarmed if he doesn't sleep like his normal self.

Looking forward to hearing about your weekend and catching up!
