On Sunday last week, Doug's grandma ("Nan") passed away. She was a really special lady, and she was so good to me. On Thursday, my parents and I went to the viewing while our friend Rachel watched Dylan. I have many happy memories of Nan, and she will certainly be missed!
On Wednesday, I needed to drop off some forms and the first payment at Dylan's new preschool. I told him we were going to go see his new school, just so he could see it and see his room and the playground. While I was changing my shirt, he was yelling from downstairs, "Mommy! I'm going to make my new teachers a picture!" Of course, he decided to "draw" the numbers 1-20. I really didn't want him to take it, because I just knew the teachers would think I put him up to it - that I was trying to show what he could do! He was so excited about it, though, that I had to let him bring it. On the way there, I was singing along to the radio and he said, "Excuse me Mommy!" I turned down the radio, and said, "Yes Dylan?" He looked at me with the cutest expression and said, "I'm really happy! I get to see my new school!" Man I love that kid! I really hope the new school lives up to his expectations (and mine!).
Thursday morning we had Dylan's friend over for a playdate. The funniest part was the two of them playing hide and seek in the yard. One would "hide" behind a tree and shout "COME FIND ME!" Each time they would peek their head out from behind the tree laughing and the other one would shout, "THERE YOU ARE!!" Then they would run towards each other laughing.
On Friday I had an interview for a new nanny job and I got it! I think I am starting August 16th. I am very relieved, because my current job was ending in four weeks, so I was starting to really panic.
We went to Lake Erie for the weekend, and I have a bunch of pictures, so I'll do a separate post for the weekend. To be continued...
