Today was the first day of school for Elliot. Luckily, he has to wear a uniform, so I didn't have to worry about buying fasionable clothes. I am pretty lacking in the cool department.
Catherine started her day in a special way too. She found some scissors and gave herself a mullet. She also got gum stuck in her hair at a doctor's office. I was laughing too hard to lecture her.
Since I homeschool Isabella and Anastasia, this is how they started the big day.
Francesca learned how to crawl up the stairs today. I remember being really excited when Elliot learned how to do it, but for #5, not so much.
We also went to McDonald's, where we studied math.
"Mommy has only $10 and there are seven of you (yes, the neighborhood kid was with us again) and I'm getting a three dollar smoothie, so work it out among yourselves,", I said, handing out paper and pens.
I really debated about putting the girls in school this year. I got alot of advice, but in the end, it just didn't feel right. I wanted to enroll them in a hybrid school, which is two days a week. Unfortunately, the school was waaaaaay too expensive, even if we never ate at McDonald's again. I was feeling really down about it. Today the director of the school called me and said she would give us a huge discount so Isabella and Anastasia could still attend! I am so excited for me, I mean them!
So many wonderful things that have happened since we've brought the babies home. I just shudder to think of all the wonderful people I would have never met if it wasn't for Francesca and Victoria. Today, Theresa not only watched my kids while I took Victoria to the doctor, she also helped them do their schoolwork AND cleaned my kitchen!!!
Victoria is really getting over her fear of food. Here she is taking a little bite of a banana!
The GI doctor wants to leave in her NG tube until after her cleft palate surgery. She gained another pound! We have 5 more doctors appointments this week, so hopefully we will finally have a plan!
I got on-line and designed some cool "business" cards. I still have hopes of being famous one day!! Am I ambitious or just pathetic?
