September was quite the month. Whew. HUGE changes for all of us as Vivian went off to preschool for the first time and the transition from summer to school proved to be a challenging one for Adeline (and for me too, to be honest). But it's October now and we all seem to have settled into the new routine. Vivian had an absolutely picture perfect start to her school days. She happily strides off through her classroom doors each day and after a few hours I pick her up and she runs out grinning, gives me a huge hug and says "I missed you Mama! School was so much fun!". Her school and her teachers are absolutely wonderful - I couldn't imagine a safer, happier, more nurturing place for her to be. Adeline started out the school year not wanting to go, which is TOTALLY UNLIKE HER. She was sad to say goodbye to her family in the mornings, but once she was there she had great days and after a couple of weeks she returned to her enthusiastic self.
And now it's October. October is my month.
