Back to school day and Laina did NOT want to go. She begged for just one more week off, but being the mean mommy that I am, I forced her to go. I had flashbacks to her kindergarten year when she would beg not to go to school everyday. It is heartbreaking to see your child hate school as much as she did that first year, and I am very happy that the decision we made to switch her out of that school and into French Immersion had such a happy ending for her. Aside from today, she has looked forward to each day with eagerness and loves the whole experience of it.
After school, Mylie had another private swimming lesson in an attempt to get one last skill passed on her report card before she moved on to the next level starting this Sunday. Unfortunately, she couldn't complete it, and I had to withdraw her from that class and she will keep doing private lessons while Laina goes into a group class. None of my kids so far have really taken to the water, but luckily with time, Laina has become quite comfortable in it... hopefully Mylie will too.
From swimming, it was a quick stop home for some dinner and then off to Laina's last jazz practice before competition on Thursday. Then the homework and bedtime routines... needless to say, I didn't take many pictures today, and only snuck outside for a few moments to take some flower pictures for my daily project.
Nothing too interesting, but some tulips beginning to bloom! The more flowers that come out, the happier I get!
