Well, last Monday was my first day of work---it's going great! I LOVE my new agency that I'm working for and the 4 days of orientation last week were amazing. Tomorrow is my first day actually getting into my schools and meeting principals so I'm excited about that too. So far so good---and thus far I honestly don't miss being at home! (sorry girls lol).
Brielle's first week at daycare had its ups and downs. She throws a fit if I drop her off, but she does fine when Lee drops her off haha. The teachers said she cries a little bit after I leave and then is fine. Sometimes she's fussy after nap time but "the teacher in the purple dress" make her animals dance after her nap one time and now Brielle is always talking about the teacher in the purple dress who she likes lol.
Here she was on her first day of daycare!
And some pics her teacher took
And while she had her first day, my mom and I were at Mall of America buying my work wardrobe!
Here was our selfie before I left for my first day of work
And *after* my first day!
Raya is liking her new daycare as well! Here are a few pictures her daycare lady has taken of their fun
Then on Friday of last week I had the day off, so I sent Brielle to daycare and took Raya for the day to school supply shop---she had her list and carefully marked off everything as we found it lol.
She picked out a few things not on the list as well ;-)
School supply shopping selfie!
Raya starts Kindergarten on this Wednesday and is sooo excited! Even more exciting is that a new little girl started at her babysitter's today and we discovered that her and Raya have the same kindergarten teacher! So the babysitter said they were holding hands and playing with eachother today and excited to have a BFF to ride the bus with etc.
The bad news is that Brielle can't go to daycare for this entire week b/c she came down with hand/foot/mouth this weekend--ugh! The joys of daycare germs. Lee took off today and tomorrow to stay with her, my dad is doing Wednesday and my mom is doing Thursday and I'll probably do Friday. Talk about bad timing! But luckily she's actually mostly fine.
So I apologize for being a horrible blogger but between work and photography I just don't have the time to keep up! Trying to still get some things over here for the girls' baby book though :-)
Here are a few more pics I haven't shared yet!
Daddy had the girls while I was at Mall of AMerica...he bought them overalls and cowboy boots lol
This past weekend was my hometown's little festival ....Raya spent a lot of time perfecting her outfit and even insisted on borrowing one of my scarves!
For the parade the girls wore their new cowboy boots <3
And I got to hang out with some of my childhood besties!
Splash pad fun, the day before Brielle started daycare
Ok, so I think that's all for now---thanks for still reading even though I'm officially the world's suckiest blogger! :-)
