What We've Been Up To

I've been slacking on the blog again, and hoping to find more time in my day to start keeping up better.

It's a very busy time in our household right now. Today Jay started back to school, and Mara started at a new daycare. We had a bit of a daycare 'situation' last week, but are hoping that the place we're at now will be a good match for us. I wasn't thrilled to leave Mara this morning while she was sobbing, but we're happy to report that she made it through the day and didn't do half bad. It sounds like she even managed a little bit of sleep, and some quiet resting time. Hopefully she'll add eating and drinking to her day at some point too! But overall, we are pleased and hoping tomorrow goes ok too. I know it is a huge adjustment, so we are trying to not expect too much from our stubborn little girl all at once!

Jay will be in class full time during the days, Monday through Thursday every week. On Fridays he will be home with Mara. I'm still working Monday through Friday. Jay is also still working part time, and got scheduled for quite a few hours this week and the upcoming weekend. So, we will definitely be keeping busy with all these new schedules to work around!

Thanks for checking in on us, hopefully there will be more blog entries to keep up with soon!

It's about freakin' time! I was about to remove your blog link from Lili's Wrath! Hehe...just kidding... =-)

I'm so glad Mara's 1st went o.k.! I promise it will get better and better. Sounds like this was a good move for you guys! Can't wait to hear more!

I'm so happy to see your update! So, what does your husband teach? (I'm assuming teach.) Nate is an athletic director for a local high school, but last year he taught SS at a different local high school. I taught math at the middle school level before staying home. Okay, this is a book... Point being... I'm glad to see your post and I look forward to Mara's 16 month post!

Claudia, Jay is actually a student! He's back in school in the surgical tech program. If being a student was a career, he would be great at it! ;)
