TGIAS or Thank God It's Almost Sunday

I'm beat but today was a great day! I am done teaching for the semester (my adjunct gig) and while the money is nice I no longer want to take my weekend time away from my number one priority. Em accompanied me to class this morning and handed out "yummies" to everyone and was amazing for 2.5 hours. She was a wonderful "helper" and enjoyed "big people school". She took a power nap in the car and we went out to a noodle shop for lunch and then hit Trader Joes which is always fun. By the time we got home, RaRa was almost here and ready for our afternoon of fun. Em mastered her trike today and I am so proud of her perseverance. She finally can pedal and wasted no time showing off her newfound skill. Her physical development has been amazing and I believe she has gotten more out of the playground and chasing a ball than physical therapy. She also LIVES for her gym class which not only helps with things like balance but does so much for her self-esteem. We then headed to the playground where she played with another little girl and off to dinner we went. She fell asleep after a rousing episode of "mouuuuw" (like ouch without the ch) and the night is done. Tomorrow we have a birthday party for one of her classmates and back to routine on Monday. Some pics from today. I'm working in learning my new lens but think I'm improving.

It is interesting how talking with friends and playing on the playground can advance them so much socially.

Cute pics.

The pics are great as always. We are trying to help Jammer figure out how to pedal the tricycle but he still wants to ride it Fred Flintstone style. Maybe Em will give him some pointers.
