Mother's Day Out

I decided that Emma needed to be with other kids more often. I decided that Emma and I could use a break from each other one day a week. So... I enrolled her in Mother's Day Out. It's a daycare program at a local church, but its only one or two days a week. Today is Emma's first day.

Today is my first day completely to myself, and what am I doing? Blogging about Emma! Yes, I'm rolling my eyes at myself. I miss my Emmy Moo! So what if its only been an hour! I think I'll go get her now...

Playing outside!

Since we have a fenced in yard now, I feel much better about letting Emma play outside, but we have to wait until the thermometer dips below 100! So we play outside in the late evenings.

Now that we have a patio, Emma can draw outside with chalk! This was her first experience with it!

Settling in...

to the new house is a chore. It really is, except that it isn't. We were basically completely set up on the day we moved in, thanks to all our helpers. Besides leaving Cuthand, the hardest thing to get used to is the dang water! It smells different, it tastes different, it does weird things to my hair, and worse of all I can't get the temperature right! You know how it is when you go to a hotel, and you turn the shower on and its either too hot or too cold, so you adjust and then its the opposite, too cold or too hot? This may seem like such a little thing, but its making me crazy! Ok, silly water rant over... here are some pics of the house.

There would be some pictures of the bedroom, except I don't make beds... and I tried to clean up the hundred of toys in Emma's room so I could take a picture of it, but she got them out faster than I could pick them up!! So I decided to wait on that!
