Ryleigh's First Day of Preschool

Our baby started school today.....and I only teared up a few times. She was so excited for her first day. I keep wondering what she's doing now: is she making friends? is she being nice to others? is she having fun? has she been in the timeout chair yet? Hopefully not that last one. I can't wait to hear all about her first day.
Walking to Ryleigh's new classroom.
Waving to Dad. She was not thrilled about Daddy taking pictures at school. (I had to bribe her with presents)

Working again

I officially start working again on Thursday. I will not be watching any rugrats (except for my own) and I get to work when Ryleigh is at school on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I will be working in Pro Staff's Las Colinas office doing whatever they need help with: resumes, answering phones, data entry, etc. I am excited about getting back into the world of adult conversations and interactions, without little ones attached at my hip. Also a great reason to go shopping for new clothes! Which brings me to my next new devotion. After trying on numerous pants that either I couldn't even button or couldn't breathe once they were buttoned, I decided to start running/walking twice a day. I went to a resale shop, purchased a jogger, and that's what I've been doing this week. I am by NO means a runner. I've always watched them in awe thinking, "why would anyone choose to do that?" I am now one of those people. And it feels good. Even when it's 104 degrees outside. Hopefully soon I can say good bye to my muffin top (the roll that hangs over the top of my pants)
