Now, on with the Thirteen:
1. At the end of July, right after we got back from our trip to Maui, the kids went to Vacation Bible School. This is the first time our church held it and I was delighted that they chose to partake this year. Both my kids loved it.
2. September 11, 2012 was my daughter's first day of preschool! I can't believe it. This happened to also be my first working day there. She attends a co-op preschool, where there is A LOT of parent participation. I don't always look forward to it because there's always stuff at home to be done but oddly, working at her school forces me to slow down and play. We can all use a lot more play time.
3. Halloween was fun, though it didn't go quite the way we planned. My son was Peter Pan and my daughter was Tinkerbell. I was going to be Wendy and my husband was going to be Captain Hook. Unfortunately, my husband got sick and couldn't even go out with us and I wasn't happy with the Wendy costume I got so I went as a busy mom. The kids had fun, and really that was the point. We were joined by a friend from church who also happens to be the kids' babysitter, so they were even more excited.
