There has not been a whole lot of news in our family since we’ve moved, and that’s a good thing. “No news is good news,” as it were. We have been busy getting involved with church. I am now in the choir, and Donna has been going to the Mom’s group. The kids are attending “school” at church two days a week. It is kind of a Pre-Pre-K for Preston I guess, and just a chance for them to socialize and for Donna to have a few hours off. We’re going to look into getting Preston enrolled in Pre-K at the Catholic School that our church supports, though I kind of doubt we will be able to afford it… I accidentally started going to a Dad’s Parenting class. I thought it was a church class, kind of a Raise Your Children Catholic type of thing, but it ended up being a state-sponsored parenting class. Woops! But I’m going to keep attending for now. I like to learn!
I have to finish out the week at my current job, and instead of driving back and forth, we’re staying in our mostly empty house.
Donna and I are sleeping on the air mattress; Preston is on a camping pad; Russell is in his Pack-n-Play. Only three more days after today, and then it’s off to Papa and Grandma’s!
