Preschool Days

Anna and Asher started preschool last week. They go 2 days a week for about 3 hours each day. For Asher, this is old news, but Anna was super excited to finally be able to stay at school like Asher. Last year she would cry forever when we dropped him off-she just didn't understand why she couldn't go too. She comes home chatting away about her day. She talks so well but when she gets excited we can't understand a word she says, and that is how it goes when she is talking about her day at school. I just nod and smile.

For me, those precious 6 hours a week are the most peaceful. Give me 1 kid and I can do ANYTHING! Jesse and I have designated those mornings to a run together. It feels so good to be running again. Just fitting this into our weeks has made me a different person. I have also managed to have quiet times with the Lord again. As short as they may be, they too make me a different person, filling my heart with peace and the energy to get through the day. The kids bought me an inductive study bible for Mother's Day and I have just now begun diving into it, starting with Colossians (I love this approach to studying scripture). In genereal, I believe we have finally adjusted to the chaos of 3, found a groove and assemblence of some structure, and life is GOOD!

See how much Jesse enjoys our runs?!
