Happy Halloween!

I was able to obtain a rare day off work, and enjoyed a lovely evening of trick-or-treating with my babies! They had a blast!

Peanut Has Started School

I live in a lovely neighborhood, with lovely people, and lovely businesses, and a lovely community, and crappy schools. Except for one.
Back when Peanut was an infant, I started researching the schools in the area to decide which would be best for him to attend. I checked back with each school yearly, just to see which I should keep in mind. There are five elementary schools in the area, and only one has ever held any promise. Three are currently under federal intervention programs because they suck. One is decent, but almost ten miles away from us.
That left us with St. Joseph Catholic School. A pillar of academic excellence and high standard, a faith-based, family-oriented establishment, part of our parish community, not too overly expensive, and only two miles away.
I am pleased with Peanut's integration into the school, and everyone's acceptance of him. He loves to be there, and loves his teachers.
I love that there is an expectation of family involvement and attendance to events. It has been so great. There are several events I will be posting about, just to get the word out; in the meantime, here is my Peanut on the first day of school:

And with his teacher:

How I can't keep up with everything I have to do...

Unfortunately, there is not much time in life to blog. I was hoping after Libby came along I would have as much time to chronicle the life of my girl as I did with my son.
As crazy as it sounds, however, there is not as much time to do things with two kids as there was with one. Interesting.
Sometimes there is a moment to write things down, though. Namely, when one or more of these buggers is sleeping.
There is not really anything exciting going on, anyway. Lots of gardening, and lots of making sure my darling daughter does not eat rocks and bark and poisonous plants. She keeps me on my toes, that's for sure!
