Christine returned to developmental preschool a couple days after Joe. Its nice that she has the same teacher and therapists that Joe had in devprek. I'd be a lot more uneasy if it wasn't for the familiar faces. Christine is doing well in her class. Although she definitely seems ready to see me when she gets home. This is the first time we've had her ride the bus. Its a little bittersweet for me... she's my baby!
100 Acres nature park at the IMA, the library, and had a lunch playdate at the park with some friends.
For me there are mixed feelings about getting back into the routine of the school year. While there are a certain amount of freedom available in summer that we'll miss there is also a bit of comfort in the routine that we will soon settle into. We were pretty relaxed this summer, lots of late breakfasts and lazy days around the house... getting up and moving bright and early is proving to be a challenge for me. I'm going to have to start adjusting my bedtime.
On the upside, I'm hoping the time alone with Nate will allow us to do some fun things together and tackle our new curriculum. Nate can be tricky sometimes. While he is very intelligent, he flip flops between being frustrated at something being too easy and then being frustrated when something is even a little challenging. He is very critical of himself and gets down if he struggles with learning or remembering anything. Which makes things hard on both of us at times. One of many things we will be working on together this year.
