We have had a busy past few days! I started off with me going back to school on Thursday, in a way I was looking forward to it (that routine thing I tend to crave), but it is always sad when I realize summer really is over. Me going back to work meant Peyton started her new "school" at Ms. Evelyn's. What a blessing! Ms. Evelyn is so kind, loving, and calm! Not to mention three friends from OPA were there with her, so they all got to start together. The $70 price cut is an added bonus, although I would much rather pay her the $160 a week that OPA required. She went in very well, especially considering she had not been in daycare since May. It's a comforting feeling to know she is loved and taken care of while I'm at work, which I have plenty of guilt about sometimes.
Saturday Peyton turned three! I cannot believe how big she is getting and I thank God for her everyday. Her big present this year was a Jeep Power Wheels. She was excited to see it, the first thing she asked was, "Where's the Ipod?" Times are changing for sure!
We had a party for all her friends at School Street Gym that morning, and they had a blast! Money well spent to let them run around and jump and play for an hour then eat cake! I got good reports from the parents of long naps that afternoon, so that is a definite success!
I was shocked that she took a nap afterwards, I thought she would be too hyped up from the party. When she woke up we headed to Nana and Granddaddy's for her family party at their pool. They have a new sunroom and newly landscaped yard. Luckily the weather cooperated and everyone had a great time! I love having family around!
