The New Preschool

Why is it so difficult for a woman who taught in child care for years to take her children to preschool?? We are going to visit the kiddos new (and first) preschool today. It's a feeling of relief, excitement, and guilt. Relief because I know they are ready and capable. Excitement because I can't believe they're already able to do so much! Guilt because I hate leaving them even though I know they are okay. Choosing the right school is also very important. What if I made the wrong choice?? Wish us luck as we start a new journey into the "school age years."

Oh, calculus is over! Hooray! Hopefully, that will be my last math class ever, but I always say that and end up having to take another.

Nighttime Training Success

I just had to share that Matthew stayed dry all night long (in big boy pants)! After a year of potty training, we are finally at the last step! Of course there will be set backs, but for now, we are celebrating the moment. Now, we will start to potty train Alyssa starting Friday. Finals will be over, and we will have about 3 weeks together before school starts again. Ah, the journey begins again...
