Every year, the kids’ schedules gets better and better. Now that both kids are at the same school, our schedule is considerably more streamlined than last year with all the different start and end times at schools 10 minutes away from each other.
Ren has settled really well into Kindergarten. It helps so much that he has his friend Sun there. I think she has become a bit of a security blanket to him, though! Hopefully he will eventually feel confident there without her always by his side. In the meantime, though, it is sweet to see the bond of friendship they have developed. He calls her “Honey”.
Now that Claire is in school morning and afternoon, I get some alone time with my boy five days a week. I am loving it! With my mornings free, I now have a good amount of time to do errands on my own, and to have quality time with Ren in the afternoon. He is good company, if not a little too chatty at times! He is also very patient with me and my camera.
This past week we finally got some gorgeous fall weather so we enjoyed some time outside in the river valley. There wasn’t the best selection of leaves for collecting but Ren was happy anyway.
Ren has begun some exciting new activities this year but since I’m going to blog about those soon with accompanying photos, I won’t divulge them now! Suffice it to say that our boy puts the “Ren” in the term Renaissance Man.
