no looking back
Yesterday was Alena's first day of pre-school and it went off without a hitch. We were actually a little surprised when she confidently and without hesitation crossed the threshold into the classroom and did not look back. Both Daniel and I walked away a bit stunned.
These past few weeks have been a bit of a blur as we wound down from summer and tried to get prepared as best we could for the things to come. A week ago Daniel and I took a long weekend away just before his knee surgery. The following week was filled with doctor appointments and a day of surgery which again went well. Just one week post-opp he is feeling great and already back working hard. It has been a bit of a circus around here at times. The first day home from the hospital was a bit hard as I am sure Alena sensed my need to help Daniel and that only increased her need for my help/attention as well. Things have calmed down a bit and she is now quite helpful. But it is quite entertaining to see how funny a pregnant lady and gimp try to run a house these days. The good news is that the bigger I get the healthier he will be. So maybe by the time the baby gets here he will be able to walk.
I am really looking forward to this time that I will have off during Alena's school day before the baby gets here. Now if I could only get my studio cleaned I will be able to get back into the production mode and make a few things that have been on my mind. For now I have been enjoying knitting in the evenings.
