School Days

So, first and second day of JK went off without too much trouble.

The morning of his first day James was very excited and anxious to get there. My evil fiend and I walked our Monkey over to the Kindergarten pen, and stood off to the side with all the other parental units. James was fine until the reality of the situation kind of clicked in. He was going into the classroom but Mommy and Daddy weren't. He started to cry, and before I could even blink the teacher wisely grabbed his hand and led him away. She said he was fine as soon as they got inside.

James is usually a fearless, chatter bug who imagines adventures wherever he goes. He will chat with anyone, telling them stories about Godzilla and asking them question about dinosaurs and robots. He likes to make up his own jokes and sing songs.

His second day of school went swimmingly well. Apparently he didn't want to leave because he was having such a good time. His teacher told us that she was very impressed with his vast vocabulary, and that he performed the entire "I Love You Forever" Munsch story for the class.

He's already talking about how much he's looking forward to school on Monday.

1st Day Of School

Well, I can't believe how fast this day has come. Tomorrow is my Monkeys first day of JK. Where has the time gone? It feels like only yesterday that he was learning to walk and saying his first words.

These days he's building spaceships out of Lego, playing Godzilla with his dinosaurs, singing Disney songs with joyful abandon, dancing like a funk machine, trying to make up jokes and stories and just being generally awesome!

We spent our last schooless night in the living room listening to Vampire Weekend(thanks Sean!), eating ice cream and building things out of Lego!

Well, today was a very big day!!!! I haven't really been advertising to friends that my Mom was due to escape her year long imprisonment today. I was sooo fearful that something would go wrong and it wouldn't happen. I kept very silent about it, but happen it did! She is FREE! She still has a long way to go in her recovery, but being in her own home has got to help.

It's hard to believe that my Mom has been in hospital for 13 months! She will have to continue with her physio and once she's gained some more weight and built her muscle back up she'll have a couple more surgeries still. Still, she's home and it feels sooooooo good!

I love sweaters! I love chilly mornings and cool but sunny afternoons! I love colourful leaves! I love pumpkins, hay bails, and decorative gourds! I love still being under 35, and being part of TSOundcheck! I love Starbucks Pumpkin spice latte! I love apple picking! I love corn chowder! I love sitting on the front porch with my fiendish love, drinking tea under the stars! I LOVE HALLOWEEN(A LOT)! I LOVE FALL!!!!
