First Day of School - 2015

It was Joash's first day of Kindergarten today. Since his school has moved into brand new facilities, the start of school had to be delayed a day until all of the inspections could happen. So today is the day! And today of all days was the one day Joash decided to sleep in instead of getting up at 7 on the dot. So I had to wake him up. But once he remembered that school was starting today, he was pretty excited.
 Mataya was excited too as she thought that she was going to go to school as well. When she was leaving the school with me after we got Joash settled, she said in a very sad voice, "oh dear."
Joash had a lot to say about school during the ride home. He was very excited because there were some tractors to play with and different machinery to hook up to the tractors. They met Sally the Sound Muncher who ate silly things like spiders, snacks, suckers and scissors. And they had story time and had some time to look at books by themselves.

He asked me if I was a bit sad while he was at school or if I was happy. I told him I missed him a little, but mostly I was happy because I knew he was in a place where he would have fun, learn lots of things and learn about God. He said he missed me a little bit too, but mostly he had fun.

That is how it should be.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
