Spring Break Day 4
WHAT A BIG DAY!!!
We got up this morning and got ready to walk over to Aaron’s “new school” (Minnieland, a day care) starting in the fall. I filled out the lengthy registration form and we headed over. Here he is ready to go to school. He looks like a big boy already!
We were very excited to take Aaron for a visit and see what he thought of the whole thing. It is a very different environment from the home day care he has been going to, but we want him to be in a structured environment with lots of kids his own age as he gets closer to starting school. Aaron’s big sister Courtney went to the same place 10 years ago (she is 14 now!) and remarkably, some of the same ladies are working there.
Aaron did not really interact with the kids (they were involved in their group activities) but he did look around a lot exploring the fish tanks and different center areas. He cried when we had to leave (apparently going to Costco is not as fun as being at Minnieland). We really enjoyed our tour and meeting the directors, and Aaron seems VERY excited. Now we just have to finish getting him potty trained by the last week in August…here’s hoping.
We have had a GREAT day of PT today! Aaron has been clean and dry all day (as I write this post at 7:45 pm!) and even did the tiniest of poops in the potty. He actually ASKED to use the bathroom while we were in Target and was successful! We had lunch at Popeye’s (Aaron has NO appetite these past few days) and headed home. Aaron did NOT take a nap, AGAIN, but I went out to get a massage that I received gift cards for Christmas 2008! Ahhhhhhhh. Now we are enjoying Lion King together with some more rice pudding. (I can’t explain it, I have just REALLY been enjoying rice pudding!)
I am going to get to work on my grad school paper, due Sunday, and fit in scrapping and chores as I make progress on that.
Here is Aaron with an AMAZING happy face he just drew, and playing Handy Aaron with his party favors.
Finally, Aaron got Daddy’s glasses and wanted to look like him. CUTIE!
