The kids were playing outside while I pulled weeds in our flowers today. I found a worm and thought I would see what the kids thought of it. Peyton, Jenna, & Sydney were all about it. They thought is was so cool. I couldn't keep Syd from ripping them apart. Notice hers were little pieces in her hand. Landon and Ethan were freaked out! It was hilarious! They wanted to hold it, they really did. They would hold their hands out and hesitate then put it back. The worm would be in their hand for half a second then they would scream and drop it. Another thing we did was put their big kid beds up. I was curious to see if it would make them sleep better or worse. The boys have 3 blue race car beds and the girls have storybook cottage beds. It was a little rough getting them to stay in their beds. The boys were leaping from bed to bed. They pulled their toys out and it was a little stressful. Hopefully over time the newness will wear off and they will go to sleep better. Only time will tell!
Today was the kids first day of child care/preschool. My awesome sister-in-law works at our local High School Child Care. They are willing to allow the kids to come for a couple of hours three days a week. This is great because it will give the kids the chance to interact with other kids and get some structure in their days. Of course the day can't start without a little bit of excitement. Someone (Syd) decided to spend some time in the bathroom this morning. Nothing my new best friend Mr. Plunger can't fix.
They had a blast. As soon as they called all the kids over to start preschool Syd started crying. I think it was the organization and intimidation of someone standing up and leading them. She will get used to it. Their favorite part is the playhouse with slide. I think this will be a great thing! Plus I get a couple of hours to get some stuff done.
Once again, God has provided exactly what we need.
