We've had a busy bunch of weeks! Mia started 3rd grade, and Anya and Bree started 1st on August 26th.
This monkey finally started preschool the week after that on Sept 3. We're doing JoySchool with five other ladies in the ward on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We've really been looking forward to getting him out of the house and into a big group of buddies- it is already working wonders after just two weeks. The days he goes, he is on cloud nine, he doesn't scream or hit anyone, uses the potty consistently, and is his usual, snuggly self. We've missed this boy since the baby was born.
He really got the short end of the stick when I was dealing with homeschooling two Kindergarteners and a second grader and nursing an infant every three hours. Aside from our little nighttime ritual, whatever attention he got he really had to fight for, I'm afraid. Things are definitely looking up.

|This pic made me laugh. This was their reaction to me saying "Love each other!" Ha- my corny kids.|
But it was worth it to get this girl smiling so big. Thanks to grandmas for contributing to the party expenses!
