I got to cheer Elayna on at the Terry Fox Run at her school today. Her class had to run around a track four times which was quite a distance for that age! She came in third of the girls in her class and had to get up in the front of the assembly with all the other top three runners. She had a great time and was very happy that she got a ride home today because she was exhausted afterwards.

It always turns bad. In fact, this is probably the first time I've let them have scissors since that last time. And Chantel is soooo upset about it and doesn't understand why I can't fix it. I just don't understand why she would stand still long enough to let her sister do it. And the sister that did it is pointing the finger at the baby (yeah right!). And they were so nicely making cards at the table one minute (right beside me!) when it suddenly turned into this.

I've been fighting a stomach bug off and on for the past couple of weeks . . . I've been trying to remember to take my iron because I've been feeling really tired . . . I'm enjoying my quieter days now that kindergarten and preschool have started . . . I've done a little bit of sewing but not much . . . I've been watching my baby turn into a toddler.

Chantel had her first day of preschool today. She was so excited and kept asking when it was time to go. She picked out a pretty outfit and had her new backpack ready. I had to stay for the first class to help ease her into it and it probably wasn't necessary. She played very well - on her own, and a little bit with others; and not really caring if I was nearby or not. She was very quiet and seemed a bit shy around the other kids. She loved all the different activity stations - her favorites were the lite bright cube, playing "doctor" on the stuffed puppies, the class fish, playing with the dolls, and the rice and water tables. And there are a LOT more stations left to explore.

My oldest daughter is at her first day of kindergarten today. It's quite a bit quieter around here. She's a very sweet child but between her and my middle child they can get into quite a bit of trouble. It's been really fun getting into the "back to school" stuff. And we went on a special shopping trip for clothes which is something we haven't done before. I'm really enjoying having girls so I can help them pick out things and relive some of my childhood (yes, I still like Barbies). Her daddy got to walk her to the busstop this morning so I wouldn't have to wake up the other girls. He said she was so excited to get on the bus that he managed to get a quick hug out of her and then she didn't even look back. So she's very excited and knows a bunch of kids in the class already so it should be a fun day for her. But do I wish I was sitting in the back of her classroom right now so I can watch her all day? YES!
