Its been a busy day here today, With Gabrile starting prep so he is at school 5 days a week!! Then Niamh started kindagarden and she goes 3 days a week Tuesday through to Thursday. We got up on time and after we had a guest for dinner the kids didnt clean up their toys so first thing before breakfast at 6.45am they were up and cleaning their toys away. They did a good job and got it done quickly before sitting at the table for breakfast. They raced to their rooms to get dressed for school, I went out last month and got new school uniforms for them and new shoes, runners, bags and lunch boxes. We were very organised with me making their lunches the night before and they were in the fridge waiting for them. I had enough time to have my breakfast and a shower and watch the news and we were still early! The kids were on the couch waiting to go to school and asking Allen every 5 seconds "can we go yet?"
Gabriel was very excited to be in his new class room with his friends from school. He was very happy when we left and I couldnt wait to get home and get some stuff done without them and spend some time with just Hezekiah. Niamh was very happy to spend the whole day at school and bought home her first drawing and her first cut and paste picture (a fish) I'm looking for the blutack at the moment its grown legs I just have to work our who's legs they were????....
Niamh was sooooo tired by the end of dinner and was in tears because she couldnt get to pat the duck that daddy was holding, so off to bed she went ( with more tears) she went to sleep very fast. Xaviour being a prefect this year (who forgot his badge) had a good day and was organised and had left at 8.15! Unheard of in our house its usuallly running into the kitchen at 8am and trying to make lunch while having his breakfast. He came home happy and was very quiet and hungry ( being almost 16 he's constantly eating). I love that we can sit and talk when he's ready to. I know he is going to have a great year with his senior dance.
jasmine decided that today she was going to finally clean her room. She has been so excited about moving for university that she has packed everything into boxes and is literaly living out of her suitcases. Tomorrow we get to repack the stuff she actually needs right now and then store the rest. She is starting to get reality of moving and having to pay rent and buy food and make her dinner herself every night! My father is close by in case of emergency and my brother in case of "boy" trouble. Jasmine leaves on the 28th and dad arrives the same day and will take her car on the boat for her so that she has her car in Melbourne. I know she is going to have a great time and that Im going to cry at the airport when she leaves :(
University for me starts back next wednesday for a day then the follwing week its full steam ahead, with Hezekiah starting day care for the first time. I know he will be fine he fits in really well with others and plays nice with other kids.
