Okay, so I've been horrible about updating our blog. In my defense, we've had quite a lot going on!
Dillon started school a few weeks ago, and so far he's having a great time! His class consists of 6 other kids from 2-3 years old, along with one of their parents (so, 7 kids and 7 parents total). He plays with the other kids inside for a while, has a snack, we do a craft, we sing songs and play little games. His favorite part of the day is when we go outside to play for 30 minutes or so at the end of the class. The school has different playgrounds for the different aged children, which is really nice. The toddler-kindergarden playground consists of a huge sand pile, a huge dirt pile, lots of toys (scoops, buckets, etc), a slide and swings, a rabbit (yes a real rabbit!) that the teacher takes out for the children to pet, and even a big chicken coup for the children to go in and feed and pet the chickens! The class is only 2 hours once a week (Fridays from 9-11am), but he still manages to completely wear himself out and get dirtier than a pig in a mud puddle. We're also meeting lots of other parents and children that are Dillon's age, which is great!
Joel is still working hard at Trader Joe's, still in training for the management positions. We're hoping that he'll get his promotion in the first quarter of next year!
Baby is doing well, growing like a weed. We have basically nothing ready for him, so hopefully the next 11 weeks will pass slowly... yeah right! ;o) I'm having a baby shower for my friend Megan in November, and we have TONS of stuff to get done before that happens, including setting up the baby's room. We're making progress, but it's not quite fast enough to keep me from panicking! :o)
I think that's all for now, I'll post some photos later on today once I get them off of the camera. Hope you're all doing well!
