Calista started kindergarten this month.
Because she's such a big girl, Calista is doing a lot of things for herself, like packing her snack, picking out her clothes, and taking the bus.
Craig has started preschool, too, even though he's still 2. The cut-off around here is December 31, so he'll be one of the younger kids in his class.
Because of all of this, I have one morning a week with only my infant. I celebrated my first such morning with ice cream and hot fudge.
I have four mornings where Craig can be my focus. We've barely begun, and already gone to the zoo,
I miss Calista, my buddy for the last five years, but I still get her in the afternoon, so I'm doing fine. What I'll do next year when she's gone all day... We'll cross that bridge when we get to it.
All in all, we are loving the start of school! Let's hope that continues!
