Who would have thought…

The time has finally come, and up until this point I was excited….now not so much. My daughter will be four the end of this month…which means it is time to start the search for a vpk program. By the time she was two my husband and I had already planned out all the schools she would go to (I am a planner so 2 years in advance did not seem as crazy as it does now ..haha)and everything would be easy….it’s not. Maybe it’s because I am not ready…she has been home with me from birth, and now I am supposed to let her go and learn from someone I don’t know? Or maybe it’s because deep down I want to teach her from home, and never have her worry about someone hurting her feelings ,or some teacher being to hard on her ,or me not being able to help her with homework because it is completely different from when I went to school (yes I know that is way down the line). So I think the problem is really I AM NOT READY (insert crying mom here ) ,because this would  mean the little girl I carried for 9+ months is growing up. What if I  missed some moments being to caught up in everything else and how hard being a parent is …I missed watching her change…
Lets get back on track here before my pregnancy hormones go into full effect and I am crying my eyes out. This last week has been spent looking for the perfect school again. Yes again….the first school we looked at with her and told her would be her school sent us an email that the college was deciding to close that location down (not sure why). So that meant we had to search again and pray we find something that would be a good fit for her. After a lot of digging we found 2 that we really loved and they are completely different from each other. One is a charter school…that goes from vpk -8th. The school has been an A rated school since it opened ,and all the reviews about this school of course is amazing. The only down fall is it uses a lottery system to accept students…which means you have to play the waiting game to see if you are chosen (I hate waiting lol). The other is a Montessori school which also goes vpk-8th. This school also  has great reviews and ratings and uses the kind of teaching style I like (hands on and allows the students to learn at their own pace). However the down fall to this school is there is tuition(in the higher grades)….and a hefty one at that.
Since my husband likes the structure that was shown at the charter school we decided to play the waiting game, and use the Montessori school as a back up. My daughter seems really excited to go to school …(she jumped right in with the other kids at the Montessori school and started doing what they were doing) we will see how she feels once she actually has to go …luckily both schools have an open door policy (which will be great for me) so I can come visit and stay with her as long as I like.
Who would have thought this would be so hard..I can’t imagine what the first day of school is going to look like (well I know there will be a lot of sobbing …a lot of sobbing lol )
How was the first day of class for you ?

My happy place…

image

I have been stuck inside the house with sinus issues the last couple of days …but, the nice thing about living in Florida is, while everyone around you is still dealing with snow (sorry), your packing up your van to head to beach for a fun/relaxing day with your family . I think it was  a perfect prescription for my condition 🙂 image

My husband also got me a juicer(as a super early anniversary present  …it was on sale and couldn’t miss out on a great deal )so I have been trying to make yummy drinks for the family …I came up with this yummy mix (pictured below) consisting of strawberries…carrots…and apples. The kids asked for seconds …and considering there is carrots in it ..and my kids are anti veggies…this was a big win in my book.

Today will be spent grocery shopping (ugh) and cleaning …and since I am nearing the end of my pregnancy…trying to relax as much as possible!

Our favorite books of the month

So this month has been super crazy for us ….and unfortunately most of it was spent stuck in bed sick.

However we did manage to make it to story time once this month …where the kids made some cute crafts for the letter “S”.

image

The teacher also read a couple books ..but my little ones  only seemed to like “Stellaluna” (I had actually never heard of that book until she read it …so I was glued into it as well :))

image

We also picked up a couple of books while we were there. Out of all the books we took home my kids only really enjoyed  the book “Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do you hear? (We have literally read it 20 times ! ) So I think we will be picking up more books from this author !

image

We also had a craft day with one of our friends earlier in the month .. where we read the really cute book “Pete the Cat ….I love my white shoes” (This is author is becoming a favorite in our house )

image

We made Pete the cat as well, but some how it got misplaced before I could snap a picture of it :/.

Can’t believe this month is  already coming to an end !  Be sure to let me know what your favorite books have been for this month in the comments below !
