Pre-Pre-K School Tour

Yesterday despite a raging, horrible headache I had to go tour the Pre-Pre-K school I signed the boys up for. I wanted to see the whole place to make sure it’s the right one. Registration is on the 3rd and the 13th is the first day of school. This is the first school experience for them and I want to make sure I’m doing the right thing. Being here in Colorado Springs I don’t really have a choice other than go about the normal things I need to do. If/when we leave here in another 5 weeks or so then I have at least started out somewhere with them. I’m trying to give them a big advantage by putting them into a program so early. This one is suited for their ages and is only 2 hours a day long to start. It’s pretty much pre-pre K. They start working on the very basic things. We are all teaching them numbers, letters, and colors. We are a little weak on shapes but that’s in progress.

The school is clean and in a good location. It has everything my boys need and the teachers seem very nice. I got to meet the boys potential teacher. She is very sweet and young. She assured me if I had questions she would be happy to answer. So I threw out my usual 10 or 20 questions to figure this whole thing out. She just laughed and got through them. Hey, I’m the only parent they have. I need as much info as I can get here.

I was having a bad week because of my headache but I think it’s finally going away. I’ve taken more aspirin in the past 2 days than I have in the past 2 years. I really try to avoid all types of medication. I don’t like it at all.

Everyone is doing good. Except the occasional fight over the sit and spin toy. I had no idea this thing was going to cause a brawl. We have had to put it up 3 times already. I know I need to just go buy another one but I really think they nee to learn how to share.

Sharing with twins is a thing, right? Lol It seems more like a wrestling match for any toy one of them picks up. Automatically the other one thinks it belongs to them. It’s pretty much like Dale and Brennan in StepBrothers. You touch my drumset and I will blankety blank blank you! Then I ask one of them, did you touch his drumset? Nooooooo. Of course not. Sigh.

The rest of this week is all about getting the rest of this house in shape. We have been going room by room with a contractor and making him fix the little things. When we are gone next week for our family reunion they are going to gut the kitchen and completely redo the basement. I hope they get it all done in 1 week because if not I’m going to be pretty pissed.

The family reunion is now in Denver. It was supposed to be in Houston, Texas but I can’t fly with Alex. He can only drive a short little while so we told the family we aren’t coming. The family said we can go to Denver instead. Yay? It will be fun and I want my kids to know their multiple, multiple cousins. It’s very important to get together with family since we rarely do any big holidays with them. 1 week with most of my family. What could possibly go wrong Lol

I hope everyone is having a great week. I’m getting back to all the great messages today. After I make breakfast. Enjoy the next few weeks of summer guys. School starts soon and it’s back to the running kids all over the place. Love ya’ll!
