Fasten Your Seatbelts...

Whew! The first couple of days of first grade is under our belt and the Munchkin is in heaven. She loves her teacher and in addition to meeting some new friends, she is able to spend some time with her BFF's from last year.

A month or so ago the husband and I had a conversation with her about what after school/extra curricular activity she would like to do (while gently guiding her away from all things cheer and gymnastics. No offense but the thought of sitting through that several days a week makes me want to gouge my eyes with something sharp... or dull. Either way. Gouge my eyes.) She settled on swim team. I'm thrilled. She loves the water, it's something we can all be interested in and it's something she could actually do long term, if she likes it. Unlike gymnastics.

This week they are doing evaluations and it's every day after school. Not only have we been thrown into the reality of getting up and out every morning by 7:45, but now right after school we're changing, snacking and heading to the pool. Nothing like diving right in.. Ha!

Tonight, I accidentally put the twinlets to bed at 6:00, instead of 7:00. They were so tired at the dinner table I assumed it was later than it actually was. They didn't fight me, and were both asleep within 10 minutes. Poor little puppies aren't used to such a busy schedule.

Neither is Mommy.

Poolside Nap. It's tough being the little sister.
