The month of March has started off with a bang! Bailey started preschool which she absolutely loves and is so excited about. After some work I was a able to get the teacher and days we wanted hooray!! She is with Bentley's old teacher Miss Mary and so she is really comfortable already with her and the classroom was familiar. I was terrified even more to send her on the bus then I was with Bentley, but she was too excited to go on the bus that I couldn't say no. I will continue to monitor and see how I feel about this bus situation. I mean she is only 3! I can't wait to see how much she learns:) She picked out a pink barbie backpack against my urgings toward another one. She loves it and tries to fill it with all sorts of things! Bentley ended his season of Flag football playing for the NY Giants by making it to the Championship game against the Dolphins. The team they played were all older and bigger. They also had played together for a few years making it hard for our little unexperienced team to score. However, the kids all had a blast, and Bentley didn't know whether he won or lost so thats good! He just loved playing and was a great quarterback! He also had wonderful coaches and teammates!
February is already a busy month with Bentley's birthday, Valentines, and our Anniversary! However when you add friends birthdays, baby showers (Carli with twin boys, and Shalayne with a girl), and other extended families birthdays, it feels like you are celebrating all month long!! Lets just say I ate way too many treats and had too many laughs to count! February was fun! Jon and I celebrated Valentines by going to dinner and a movie. I know it sounds simple but that is what we like! I love food and Jon loves movies:) We also Celebrated our ninth anniversary with a nice dinner! We decided to set some goals for the next year regarding our relationship and that with our kids. I liked doing that and it feels good to recognize the good things we are doing and to want to work on the things we can do better! We have learned and grown together so much and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for our family. I was also able to go on a field trip to B and B farms to see how bees make honey with Bentley's preschool class. The kids ( and I ) were all so fascinated. We have had fun watching Bentley at his football games and bailey learn new dances. They are both growing and learning so much. Lastly I wanted to mention the fun lemonade stand we ran with friends. It was our first experience and the kids loved it. Here are some pictures from all the February fun and Celebrating:)
