First Day of Preschool

Today is the day!  We finally start day 1 of God's Little Explorer's.  Today, we are going on a treasure hunt. 

I started off wrapping presents for the kids.  They each got a bible, school supplies, and a special treat.

 
 
 
 

 
Here they come!

 
And there they go!

 
Follow the X's.
 
 
And the treasure has been found!

 
Now to open their presents...

 
And the traditional "First Day of School Pictures"

 
Little Dude can't be left out!

 

 

 
Making their treasure maps.

 
Little Dude's masterpiece.  It only held his attention for about 15 minutes.

 
So I brought the V-Tech reader out to buy me some time.
 
It was a pretty busy day for me today.  I also, for some not well thought out idea, thought today was the perfect day (since it finally cooled off), to try out two new recipes.  We had chicken, pineapple and cheese baked inside dinner buns, and apple dumplings for dessert.  And I felt the need to grate the zucchini from the garden...and strip the bedding from the guest room and wash it after our guest left.  And do the floors.  And the dishes (repeatedly since I was cooking and baking all afternoon). 
 
This all adds up to planning tomorrow out better so that when I get them up in the afternoon, I can concentrate only on them.
 
While Mommy was stressed out this afternoon (her own fault!), the kids had a blast and are super excited for tomorrow.
 
And I'm off to plan...have a great night!
