It's Been awhile :)

I have read a lot of books since I last posted, too many to mention them all ;) Will blog again about the next book I read.

Mom Tips
I have one of the hanging, soft sided, cube organizers hanging in each of the boys closets. There are 6 sections in each one. In each section I put a shirt, shorts/pants, undies and socks. This way, outfits match and there is no mad rush in the morning to figure out what to wear. They can pick which outfit they want from the 6 sections, so there is still some choice . My 3 year old B, gets himself completely dressed all by himself in the morning. My 7 year old L, likes it because he could care less about what he wears, so it takes some of the decision stress out of the equation. I like it because when my husband helps to get them dressed, he is able to do it easily and then he does not pick something weird, or ruin 2 outfits, because a certain pair of bottoms only works with a certain top ;).

L turned 7 this spring and started 3rd grade this fall. He is loving his new school and new teachers.
B turned 3 this spring and started 3 year old preschool and goes 4 mornings a week.

They both ride the bus. I drive them to the school at 7:30 to catch the bus. At noon the bus drops B off at the house. There was an added charge for this, but it was well worth it. At 3:30 I drive to the school to pick L up when the bus drops him off.

Starting next Monday after school, L will resume piano lessons 1 day a week.

Baby S is not so much of a baby anymore. He will be 16 months on the 10th! He is running all over the place. He is quite stubborn. His favorite thing to do right now is to pinch you and then he says OW! He is eating all big people food, and has even learned to use a straw! They grow up sooo fast.

Life in General
Daniel and I have been very busy lately helping to launch the new Hope Johnston Grimes satellite location that will be at Summit Middle School.
