April went by so fast and I'm fairly sure that May is going to go even faster. So much happened in April. Of course, there was Easter, and the annual Easter egg hunt at my Mom's. This was Aida's first year to join the hunt and she thought it was fantastic, and how could it not be? My Mom throws an amazing Easter egg hunt! I think there were even a few eggs that we adults didn't find this year. Mom was in between chemo treatments so she was feeling well enough to organize it. I was so glad because Easter would not have been the same if we'd had to skip it.
I successfully registered my first born for Kindergarten in April, so that happened. He'll be going to full day Kindergarten and the powers that be decided it should be free, so our budget is super excited. However, his Mommy isn't so sure. I'm nervous about so many things: should he ride the bus, dropping his food in the cafeteria, the potential for arm breaking at recess, whether he'll make friends, his ability to sit still for long periods of time. But I know he's going to love it and I'm excited to start this new adventure...I think.
We had decided not to plan a full vacation this Summer because of my decreased hours at work, but then with the new "from home" duties, they turned out to not really be decreased. Plus, I found out that she wants me to keep up that 1 day per week over the Summer in order to randomly audit documentation. But by the time we figured out all of those changes, we were already really excited by the prospect of visiting friends in Atlanta. So, we decided to rent a cabin in the mountains on the way for a few nights. It's crazy how many more amenities you can get for less in a mountain cabin versus a beach cabin. I'm talking hot tub, game room, full cable, gaming systems, and my personal favorite wi-fi! We don't usually get any of those when we go to the beach! Although maybe after this trip, we might start.
I'm going to end this post with a video clip. I think I mentioned this awhile back, but Aida's name for Evan is "Emmy." Hearing her call him that might be one of the cutest thing ever, so I had to share it. Is it even possible this cute little girl is going to be 2 years old in only 1 month?!?!
