Big changes are coming soon. Its hard to believe but a five year old will be part of this house next week. And just a couple of months after that we will declare victory on making it through the first year of having two kids, when Sam turns one on December 1st. Sam really has made this year easy. Hopefully his laid back attitude now is indicative of the little boy that he will grow into. This has been a big year for us in a lot of ways. The biggest change has been me leaving my job to stay at home with the kids. I feel blessed to be able to do this even if it is only for a couple of years. Mac started Pre-K in August. He also started Karate where he is learning self-control, discipline and respect (please let it stick).
We also changed schools this year to a small pre-school at our church. I wanted Mac to have a chance to go to school with the children of my closest friends.
Also I love that it gets out at 1:00 each day. Next year he will be in Kindergarten, so this is my last chance for that extra time with him. I am really enjoying time with Sam while Mac is at school. I missed out on this before. It really is nice to not miss out on it this time. It is such a brief moment in time. These are the sweetest days.
