Growing Up

So I registered Max for preschool today. We are sending Max here : KinderFarm It's a private school just down the road from our house about 3 minutes. I'm happy I registered him today because we got the last spot! Many children that he plays with at Tot Time go to Kinderfarm so we thought it would be a good fit, and they get to plant flowers, play outside, and care for the animals. How fun is that? They also have nice teachers (I make most of them coffee at the Javahouse) and they actually teach the 3 R's as well as social skills and Math. Many preschools today are just glorified daycare facilities, so I'm glad Max is actually going to one that teaches learned skills. The teachers really seemed to like Max and he jumped in a started playing with the others right away. I'm very happy he is registered and another parenting first is over with.

Star Wars

Max being Darth Vader. He loves him. Max says "Darth Vader saves everyone."


I'm so tired of the cold and wet Iowa weather. I'm ready for Spring to come and to get out and garden, play at the park, and just be outside for a littler bit of time not freezing my butt off. Max and I have been to every play group we can to try to stop the boredom. Hopefully we will have a better days soon. time to goto the gym. Bye for now.
