Landscaping Day Four

The landscapers finished up today. Yea! We still have a couple little things to take care of before it's all finished but it looks so great and so much better then it did.
We moved the bed in and brought it out to the corner of the sidewalk. We still need a container to go on top of the stones. No more hidden house number!

A redo of my bed in the back. I really didn't know what I was doing.:) The big bushes got cut down and moved to the fence.

Now to wait for the flowers to bloom and the plants to fill in a bit more.

First Day of School

Aiden's first day back at school went awesome.

outside with new backpack

Coloring sheets out for when the kids arrived. Aiden went to color right away and did a great job on his turtle.

One wall in the classroom. Aiden's bag hanging. I think Aiden's 'hand' was on the Teacher's Helper for the day.
End of the day...Aiden said he did "lots of fun things" at school.

Meet the teacher

Today Aiden had his meet the teacher day. This year he is in the 3 year old, MWF, Sea Turtle class with Ms Tracie & Ms Dee. Aiden was somewhat hesitant about today. He was happy to know that I was staying with him today. He kept close to me when we got to the classroom and didn't want to talk to the teachers much. He did a little better when the one student he knew from last year arrived and then was his usually self when he saw the animals and letters on the rug after checking out the room.  

Logan even got in on the coloring.

Aiden sat with some of his friends during the chapel afterword and danced and sang with them. I think this helped even more, that not everything was new and different.  

Landscaping Day Two and Three

The work continues...mostly on the irrigation system.

These from mid day 2

The end of day 3. The irrigation system mostly done and stones around the trees done. The remaining work should be done on Monday.
