Wow! September came out of the blue and I can't believe how well things have worked out. I officially opened my dayhome on September 1st and the little turkey's and I had a really great first couple of days. We've managed to merge the two potential schedule ideas that I had in mind to fit naps, meals, and outside time in at times that fit with what the kiddos need. Having almost a years difference in between some of the kids hasn't seemed to be an issue, and James has actually really loved having some younger babes around. He's a great little helper and loves teaching, sharing, and showing the younger ones. I had wondered how the days would feel for me with all of the bum changes, meal prep, clean up, and potential chaos and they've flown by remarkably fast. The  hours and hours and hours in the park have sure helped! I'm loving my choice even more now that I've experienced a little taste of it and can't wait to see what the rest of the fall has in store for us.
