It was Sam's very first day of preschool today! But she wouldn't do my posed school day photo and stand/sit on the front steps. Katie was all for it.
Sam DID cry and cling when I brought her into class...for some reason, I really wasn't expecting that. But of course, it's not uncommon, and she did recover while a couple of kids cried pretty much the whole hour. (I'm in the hall, I can hear it!) She said on the way home though "I had a GREAT day at preschool mom!", so perhaps Thursday will be better. =)
These are pictures from a visit to the park last week. Enjoying the sunny weather while we still have it...there is something so abrupt about the creeping dark and the crisp air...fall has hit me like a ton of bricks this year...and the halloween books that we got from the library (which induced a batch of pumpkin pecan muffins this evening) make me feel fall-er than usual too.
The girls we doing some balancing...a la Olympics I think.
PS...we are thinking about bribing Sam for potty training...did you know that mini MnM's are so tiny, they don't even count as a carb individually? It takes about a dozen to register as a gram on my scale, which actually equals only 0.67 carbs, not even one carb. She could pee in the potty every 15 min and still get an MnM every time with barely a blip in glucose. Who knew? Handfuls for everyone, guilt free! (I suspect this is what causes the increase in heart disease etc in diabetes..."It's fat, doesn't count!")
