Where does the time go?

I know I am due for an update. I am so sorry! I've been busy at work actually working and updating this just gets pushed to the side. I'm also trying to organize pictures and videos at home and put them all on my external hard drive so that takes up my time at home. (what little free time I have LOL!) but that is no excuse. I really do need to get in here and update. =)

Not much going on. We have been busy trying to figure out what to do with Connor next year for Kindergarten. Our elementary schools are OK but I want him to be in an excellent school. He is very smart and I don't want him to be bored like I was. There is no doubt, even though he is a November birthday (and our school cut-off is December 2nd) that he will start Kindergarten next year. That's the bad thing about November birthdays - and I have THREE! They will either be the oldest or the youngest. Is that good? Is that bad? Both have pros and cons associated with it. Anyway, in the end. I believe we have decided to send him to St. Pius Catholic school. I think this is hilarious. Why? Because I wanted to go to Catholic high school so bad when I live in New York and my mom wouldn't let me. =) And also, because Surbjit is not Catholic. But funnier yet, his mom went to catholic school when she was growing up. Funny how things go around in circles. Our friend's daughter goes to school there. She is in 2nd grade right now and they love the school. It's right around the corner from our house and it is also the parish I belong to so it all works out. So Grandma (& Mom) - you'll be happy to know I'll be going to church every Sunday now. ;) I actually went last weekend. I think it's been 10 years since I went. Very surreal!

The kids are doing good and loving their preschool. They get to do so many things. They have a jumper every month and not only does Connor love jumping in it but so does Emily and shows me how she jumps in it. Too cute. Next week they are having an animal stuffing company come out and the kids can pick an animal and have it stuffed and pick out an outfit for it too! For only $20. I don't think that's bad at all. I've heard horror stories about how expensive Build A Bear is so this isn't bad at all. They even get to have Pancake day where they get to go to preschool in their PJs (which means Mommy gets a day off from dressing them in the morning!) and the teachers make them all pancakes. Yum! And they also have bike day once a month where each class gets to bring in their bikes for that day. I haven't brought the girls bikes yet (as they don't really ride them) but Connor's brought both his bike and his new scooter.

So that's just a little bit of what the kids get to do every month at preschool. We are finally going camping again next weekend. We haven't been since October which is definitely odd and strange for us. It's been a long time coming. Well, I HOPE to keep better updated! I promise!!!!
