I've officially made it off of the couch and back into full-time motherhood, thankfully - I've got SO much to do this week!
I finally got my kids registered for school today! After two hours of testing and then another hour of filling out paperwork and it is done. I am so pleased, we really wanted the kids to go to this school and I'm so happy that they are finally in! My older kids scored really highly on reading - oh yeah, all those painful hours of listening to my beginner readers has paid off! Not so great on math - worksheets here we come...
When Katie-Abigail met her teacher she shrieked and hid behind me and refused to say anything to her teacher or make any eye contact. It totally freaked me out. She has been doing that at church but she was so cheerful all day at school I just wasn't expecting such an extreme reaction. I should have known - she's always been rather explosive. Explosively happy or mad or... scared. So we went back to the school later this afternoon, (to drop off the aforementioned huge stack of paperwork) I'd talked to Katie-Abigail about it and she did much better and even gave the teacher her a hug! yay. Open house is tomorrow and school is on Monday. I don't know who is going to cry more on Monday - I'm going to miss having my baby girl at home. We had such a nice time while the bigs were at school.
Oh and check it out - I'm guest judging over at the Paper Mama - how cool is that?
