Adelyn is doing great! I really think school has been so good for her! She loves her teacher and is disappointed on non-school days. She came home on the second day and told me (and my mom) that she pushed. I emailed her teacher and sure enough, she pushed a little boy because she wanted his toy. Great start, Adelyn! At least she told me. She's also started going to church on Wednesday nights (Sunbeamers and Little Choir). She looks forward to that! Our big news is that she started potty training. I wasn't entirely sure when we'd do it, but Adelyn came down with a nasty cold and I figured since we were housebound, it's as good time as any. We're about a week and a half in and she's done awesome! The first day of school was a little rough, but now she'll use a potty anywhere. I'm so proud of her! It's funny how differently her clothes fit her without that bulky diaper!
We took James out of town or the first time (my parents' and Hickory). Taking James to meet my grandmother was very important to me and it was made even more special because all my aunts and uncles and most of my cousins also joined us for lunch. My mom came in town and we took James and Adelyn to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. This is an awesome day trip and perfect for adults and kids. We enjoyed the cooler temps and really had a great day! Seth finished his last race of the season at Mid Ohio. We were going to all go but that's when Adelyn got sick. I was looking forward to going to a race. I'm starting to tutor again- looking forward to working with elementary kids again and bringing in some extra cash! Speaking of extra cash, I'm trying Dave Ramsey's envelope system. It's interesting to track exactly where our money is spent and it's a great way to save money. Anybody had success with this?
Next up, Turner family beach trip and Thomas family Montana trip. Can't wait to go on vacation!! :)
