Back to School
Time flies when you are having fun. This month has been so busy! Telsche started Pre-school and loves it. Not one tear was shed, by her anyways. I was a mess. The teacher was so kind to me. How funny. Telsche does every craft at school, and loves having snack there. She is talking up a storm lately. More questions, and loves to talk and sing. Although she hasn't been sleeping very well. She seems to get out of bed a lot at night. We’re working on it though.
Skyla loves the mommy and me time she gets when Telsche is at school. We play at the park and visit Grandma and PaPa. She is saying so many words now. I think her favourite is snack, although she says it 'nack, nack'. Very cute. Her hair is growing and it is so fluffy, and causes some intense bed head.
We nearly bypassed Halloween in this house and headed straight into Christmas! Telsche started asking to go to the North Pole, and to watch all of her Christmas movies. At 6am she would ask us to take her to the North Pole. We didn't know how to respond, except to say 'there's not even snow on the ground yet'. Luckily Grandma bought her and Skyla a new Dora Halloween movie. Phew. We since have gotten our past Halloween costumes out of the closet to play. It seems Telsche is happy to be Tigger again. Skyla will probably be a butterfly this year. We love Halloween. We also plan to visit an apple farm soon, and have been enjoying the leaves changing colour.
Preschool & a Trip to the Farm
September has been a whirlwind for the Eidt’s. Skyla started Preschool and she loves it. There hasn’t even been any transition issues. She goes one morning a week and every other friday morning. She is exhausted when she comes home.
Telsche started JK. She hasn’t stayed the full day yet, but we hope this week. She is quite shy going to school, but the teacher says she is doing great. We secretly watched her at recess one day and she was running around and playing. She was last to line up from the playground. She had a fall on the playground structure and came home early one day, but she is warming up to her busy life at school. She has changed a bit the way she is acting at home since. A little bit more emotional and acting out. Hopefully that is just because of the transition to school.
Due to the girls being so busy and the fact that it’s darker earlier, they have been sleeping a little better at night. Bedtime is earlier again, and they settle with less fuss. Skyla is still napping, but Telsche resists a nap — although she is much happier if she has one when she is home. Hannah is a dream sleeper. I think with the third baby I have a little bit of sleep training/schedules experience under my belt.
We are anxiously awaiting Halloween this year. To date, we will have Telsche as a princess and Skyla as the Tiger. We’ll see if that changes over the month. We spent the last day of September at the Frootogo farm with friends of ours. It was so awesome. They had so many things for the kids to play on, a tractor ride, great lunch and, of course, pumpkins. We all slept soundly when we got home.
