Another first

This year Goldilocks is taking dance lessons at her preschool for the first time.  They are learning ballet and tap.  She was (and still is) very excited about it.

Curly Bear's First Day of School

Curly Bear was thrilled to finally go to preschool.  Last year she cried every time we dropped off Goldilocks because she wanted to stay too!  She even picked out her own outfit for the day.  She is only going 2 days a week right now, and was sad on Thursday when she didn't get to stay.  I haven't been home long enough to enjoy the peace and quiet on the days they both are at preschool, however, I enjoyed going grocery shopping without the distraction of 4 extra "helping" hands hanging out of the cart :)

back to school

Goldilocks is excited to finally be heading back to school.  She is in the same class with her favorite school friend and likes her teachers.  She goes to preschool 4 days a week this year.

Last weekend, Papa Bear and I took a last minute trip to Tybee Island by ourselves to celebrate our 10 yr wedding anniversary (a little late) and my graduation. Neither one of us had been there before, and we enjoyed exploring a new place. 
We preferred to stand next to the lighthouse, instead of peering over the railing.
We survived the climb to the top of the lighthouse, and I have to admit, my legs were a little sore 2 days later, I blame it on the fact that I have no stairs in my house :)
We at lunch under one of the blue umbrellas at the North Beach Grill

All of our food was good, we needed more time on the island to make it to all of the recommended places. Besides the above, we ate at the Sundae Cafe(not cafe-ish at all, but delicious), Cafe Loco (awesome), tried to eat at The Breakfast Club but their power was out, so we ate at JJ's.

  We got a condo through and stayed at the Savannah Beach and Raquet ClubWe discovered that the north beach has quieter waves and lots of dophins.

Thanks Grandma for keeping the cubs occupied during our trip!!

I graduated!
I started working on my masters in education right before I got pregnant with Curly Bear, took 2 semesters off, and finally finished my degree this summer.  Boy am I glad to be done, my girls are glad to have mommy back, and Papa Bear is happy to have clean laundry again. ha!  Because the graduation ceremony was at night, the girls stayed home with a babysitter while my parents and brother and Papa Bear went to watch.
