Changes are coming

After much thought we have decided to take our kids out of preschool and put them in a in-home daycare. There were many factors in deciding this and not one of them had to do with the awesome care they were receiving at their preschool! I love that school and the teachers! It was a very hard decision to make.

But here's why we made it:

1. the kids were constantly getting sick. It was getting to the point where we could not go one week without someone being sick. And when there are 3 of them, it is the domino effect!

2. my son has a learning disability and goes to a special needs school for 4 hours in the morning. The bus picks him up at our house and then when school is done, returns him home. This was a BIG problem. Either me or my husband would have to leave work in the middle of the day and run home to pick him up and take him to preschool and then run back to work. Unfortunately the preschool they go to is outside of the school district and the bus would not take him there. This became very hard on James & I to do everyday. So in walks an angel....a teacher from the preschool, Mrs. M., offered to pick him up 3 days a week. What a blessing she was to do this. However, it became clear to James & I, that we could not allow someone else to do this. I am soo very thankful that people like Mrs. M exist. She is an angel walking amongst us.

3. when the twins were born they had a nanny until they were 2, and then they went into preschool. With Caroline, she went into preschool at 4 1/2 months and that is something I have always struggled with but could not change. Until now :) I am so excited for her to be in the in-home daycare so that she can get more 1x1 time.

So, by divine intervention, we found Mrs. K! She has 2 children of her own. A boy who is 3 and a little girl who is 7 mos. She is only taking in our 3 and no more. I think this will work out soo perfectly for all of us.

They start next Monday, so wish us luck!
