Mixin' It Up

Here's my son being good and trying to play the piano with his fingers (as opposed to his fists, feet, or plastic hammer). His favourite song to play is the metronome back beat...thrilling for the first minute, but ten minutes later it can get a bit old *grin*

I'm thrilled having recieved 100% on my first paper for Early Childhood Education. I seriously was hoping for a C, so imagine my joy at 20 out of 20! *pat my back* Part of the reason for taking this class is that I'm working at a preschool, and loving it. The college credits allow me more flexiblity (when I get enough) and a pay raise.

My husband is still working off his batookie doing 17 credits, chaplin's assistant, and apartment manager here at seminary. He just preached his best sermon ever to J. Alfred Smith, and I'm so proud of him!

Yay fall! The rains were so nice...I can't wait for more cold and blustery days. In regards to the game on Eddie's blog The Closest Book:

Well my little boy has officially spent 3 days in the care of another. I comforts me greatly that I get to know his caretakers so well (since they work in the room beside me). It's hard during the day when everyone is playing outside, and I can't go get him and carry him around with me. He's coping remarkably well, but I still hear "momma" from across the playground several times a day *sigh* He's learning to blow kisses very well. He's stressing a bit more in the morning now that he realizes that this situation will continue, and isn't quite sure of it, but I think playing with the kids will really be good for his personal skills as he grows up.

On a brighter note, we're hoping to spend the week of Christmas in a cabin in the Sierra Nevada with friends. I hope that works out, it would be so cool! I can't wait to see Avery playing in the snow!

The First Post

My most recent accomplishment, growing veggies from seeds...and here is my first real vegetable! We've also managed to consume fresh spinach and lettuce from my little box gardens. Can't say I'll do it from seeds again, but it's nice to know it can be done :)

The second most recent accomplishment was accquiring a job at a local children's center. I work with the preschool age (3-5 yrs old). So far I've been there a week, and I'm very happy. I a few weeks Avery will be joining me in the room next door during the day, so that daddy can get a summer job. My job will continue for the next 2 years I hope!
