|Ready for school on his last day of his 2nd week of school.|
Carter did a wonderful job on his first full day and was so excited to tell me all about rest time and how one of his friends laying by him tooted. He even had a little food leftover in his lunch box which he ate on our drive home. Leaving for school on his 2nd day of the week he told me, "Mommy, I'm used to my new friends and my new teachers now." I was so proud of him. He keeps talking about a boy in his class named Liam and even knows the boy's last name. He also talks a lot about a girl named Charlee and even told me a funny story about how the teachers couldn't wake her up at the end of rest time because she was so tired. I love to hearing him talk about his friends. At the Open House when Carter's teacher told me they would be memorizing a bible verse each week or every other week I was a bit skeptical. It didn't seem developmentally appropriate to have 4 years olds doing that. But then the first week Carter came home so proud to recite for me, "Venagers (Genesis) 1:1, In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth." He has been telling me what day it was at school, Thursday was Day 5. Then he'll tell me what God created on that numbered day according to Genesis. This week he was correctly saying Genesis instead of Venagers but I kind of missed hearing Venagers. At least Jesus is still Cheesus.

Elise still asks to pick Carter up but not as frequently and she hasn't been asking me where Carter is. She'll say, "Carty at school. We go pick him up?" On Tuesday when we came home at lunchtime without picking Carter up first she was shocked when we arrived home and he wasn't there waiting on us. The rest of the week she asked if we were going to pick him up when we arrived home at lunchtime and when I'd tell her no, she'd groan. I've been trying to make it home as close to 11:30 as possible so I can feed her lunch and then put her down for a nap by noon. On Tuesday and Friday she woke up on her own a little after 2:00 when we needed to leave to pick Carter up. On Thursday I had to wake her up. I always hate waking a child from a nap, but it works better to put her down earlier than to wait until after I pick Carter up and we make it home because who knows if she'd even sleep at that time.
