riley's first day of preschool was this past monday. it took her a long time to fall asleep sunday night and the first thing she said when she woke up monday morning was, "do i get to go to school now?" she was very excited and was just fine when we dropped her off and said goodbye. tyler and i drove away and were amazed that we have a preschooler. time goes by so quickly. she looked like she was having a lot of fun when i picked her up, so i trust this will be a great new experience for her.
she refused to take a picture with out her baby sister, and well, we can hardly ever get her to smile for the camera.
after a lunch and nap that day, and only because i still had tyler's help, we ventured to the local apple farm to meet up with friends from my moms group. when we got there we sampled apples and cider and took in the fall surroundings. it was a perfectly sunny and clear day and was just beautiful on the farm. sonja and i only lasted about 15 minutes then spent the rest of the time in the car sitting...but tyler and riley had a blast. everyone drove a golf cart out to the orchard to pick a small bag of apples. we came home with a few bags of honecrisp apples as well as a jug of fresh apple cider and have been enjoying their goodness this week.
it was a big day - preschool, a family outing and our last day together before tyler had to go back to work. i was actually pretty tired come the end of the day. i've taken it pretty easy the last few days as i adjust to this new life. i really can't complain though - sonja has made the adjustment extremely smooth. all 3 of us are completely smitten with her and in a sort of baby bliss stage. we are enjoying it while it lasts :)
