Ethan had his first day of Kindergarten today. It was only a few hours, but he had a great time and can't wait to start with full days. He says he's just worried about me. When I picked him up he said, 'How did you do without me, Mommy?' I told him, 'Daddy took me out, so I didn't have to be by myself.' He asked, 'So you held up OK then?' He's so cute and way too smart! That kid doesn't miss a thing! I did do well. I didn't even cry, but you can bet I'll be crying next week when he has his first full day!
My in-laws just left after a five day visit. I don't mind it being a five day visit, but then again, five days of your house not being your own is always a bit unsettling and although I don't look forward to their departure when they are here, I can't say I'm sad to have things go back to normal. As a treat for my son's birthday, we took him to the Museum of Natural History in London on Thursday. He chose to go because we took him last year (he's been crazy about dinosaurs since he was three years old). They give out adventure packs at the museum which consist of a back pack, safari hat, and binoculars with an adventure to follow during their visit. The back pack has clues in it to solve a mystery. Last year it had a dinosaur claw, a tooth and a sample of dinosaur skin he had to match up to one on display. He had a great time solving the mystery and even remembered which dinosaur it ended up being. Last year's trip was wonderful. We walked right in,
