Adjustments

We are all adjusting to our new school schedule.  

Clare continues to love kindergarten.  I am amazed at how much she has already learned.  Everyday she comes home talking about something new that she learned that day.  She has recently gotten a couple of letters in the mail...and she was able to read both of them by herself! 


She, of course, has her "I don't want to go" moments.  The school schedule is exhausting for her, and by the end of the week, she is wiped out.  I am hoping that as we continue along, she will get more and more used to it.  


Jane and Sydney love school.  Every night they say, "Do we go to school tomorrow?"  I love to pick them up from school and listen to them fight to give me the stories of the day.  It is nice to have two kids to get details from.  They keep each other honest!!!


Graham has had to make his own adjustments.  His poor nap schedule stinks.  When all of the girls have school, we have to get Clare there by 7:55, come home for about 45 minutes, and then take the little girls at 9.  There is hardly time for a morning nap.  Then, we repeat the whole deal again with pick-ups at 2:00 and 2:55.  Thankfully, he is so laid back, and is happy most of the time.


Graham is also adjusting to sleeping unswaddled!  Last night was his first night, and he did great.  7:30-7:00!  I love it!  He had started waking up a few times in the night, so maybe this will be the change that gets him back on track!

 The school schedule is a busy one, but we are all adjusting well.  Everyone seems to be enjoying their activities, and that makes it easier to keep everyone on the move!
