|Carter waiting for Elise to find her backpack so we could leave for school.|
|Heading out for the 2nd day of school.|
|Leaving for school today on his 3rd day of school.|
Elise wants to wear her backpack every morning when we drop Carter off. She even has to have her water bottle in the side pocket just like her brother! She really misses him when he's gone. I hear a pretty much constant string of, "Where Carty," and "Where Carty. I want pick him up!" She's so shy when he's not with us and is much more clingy to me. It's funny how when Carter is around she goes running up to talk to people with him but without him there if someone tries to talk to her, she clings to me and turns away from them. She has also had a bit of a regression with potty training. Before the only time she really had accidents was in her car seat and the days Carter has been at school she's had accidents while playing too. Each day he's been at school she's had at least 2 accidents during the 2.5 hours he's gone! On Tuesday we went grocery shopping and then to the library while Carter was at school. Thursday we went to storytime and played at the library. Today we went to the Botanic Garden. We had fun and I really enjoyed my special time with Elise. I know she'll adjust to Carter being gone and I look forward to more adventures with her while he's at school!
