The time has finally come, felt like he would stay my little boy forever (oh and he still is). But he is 4.5 and we decided it was time for him to start his journey into school. We didn’t do Preschool last year as we didn’t feel like he needed it and it costs money so figure we would wait. We chose Faith Bible for a few reasons. #1 it enforces what we believe in and does it with a Christian spin compared to a regular class. #2 its 4 blocks away from us.. woohoo!! #3 it was reasonably priced. Put those altogether and its meant to be. Justice is super excited and we are for him too. I don’t think I will be too emotional tomorrow, but it is crazy to think my little man is growing up and changing. I am looking forward to having some special playdates with Addi and getting a few things done around the house while he is in school. We plan to walk most days to and from, but once the weather changes we will go for the long minute drive 🙂
He had his orientation last week and I took a few pictures so I could capture this special time!
Tis the time for new things at home too. We went to a new friends for a playdate long ago and they had a house almost identical to ours. They had their master room and then 2 other rooms, one for their kids and a playroom. I was inspired and jealous. At that time putting our kids in one room wasn’t a good idea. Now that Addison is 1.5 (or 18 months that sounds younger!) we are putting the kids together. That meant we have to change up both their themes and find something that would be gender neutral. So I sold all their stuff on a swap page or craigslist and bought stuff from the Craigslist and Ikea to make things happen! Its still all very much a work in progress. We kinda just went in full force, but in hindsight planning it all out, making purchases and getting it all ready first would be nice. I hate phases in projects. When I have an idea, I want it done right then and complete. When things are scattered and unorganized I get as bit cranky (poor hubby). Things don’t have to be perfect but at least organized chaos is good. So within a week Daniel ripped off Justice’s closet doors and put in a desk, file cabinets and a shelf that he got from work all for FREE!!! We moved the big toys into the playroom, got the kids in the room together and slowly are decorating that as we make it all work. Keep in mind this is just getting everything in place, we want to repaint the playroom, add some decor, decorate the office space and make the whole room jive and be pretty. But for now its all where it needs to be!
No pictures of their room yet as it looks horrible.. but here are 2 snapshots of a project I have wanted to do since I saw the ideas on Etsy and Pinterest!
