Tuesdays and Wednesdays Ethan is attending Preschool Weekday at Central Baptist. This is the same school he went to last year and I really love the people and quality of care. He goes from 8:30-2:00 and while he is there I go to work for the county. This year I am working 1/2 time and so my schedule is really flexible and I set my own hours and such. I still love being a Science Coach and while we are still working to get out of debt I feel like it is worth it.
This week was Ethan's first at Preschool. He took a nap on a mat! Who knew he was such a big boy? A nap...on a mat! With this new found skill Philip and I are going to try out car camping this weekend. Hopefully he will sleep on a mat through the night as well. One of the other big changes at preschool this year is that I am packing a finger food lunch for Ethan everyday. My friend Betsy has really helped me out by listing a whole week's menu for her toddlers on her website. Here is what Ethan had for lunch during this two days at preschool:
Lunch Day One:
- 1/4 cup of blueberries
- a couple of pieces of watermelon
- vegetable crackers
- Broken up noodles and pieces of cheddar
- Box of raisins (for good measure)
- Cheddar Cheese Square
- Goolash (Daddy's recipe with hamburger, sausage, corn, beans, carrots, and celery) in a thermos
- 1/4 cup of watermelon
- goldfish crackers
- Box of raisins (leftover from yesterday)
Next Thursday I will begin a bible study at my church in the mornings. Once again Ethan will be in the nursery at our church. Then one Friday a month beginning in September we will go to MOPS. I know this sounds like a lot, but last year I was SO lonesome for all my friends that I used to see everyday. Now I have a co-worker at work so at least 3 out of 5 days during the week I will get to see my peers and not just my little one.
