I just got a text from him. He has a corner office with windows on 2 walls. He says he has a really nice view. It is almost 8:30, and there are 2 ladies in the office but none of the professionals are there yet. It could be an interesting first day.
About 8:45 some of the other people started showing up. He said they are all really nice. I talked to him at about 11:30, and they were taking him to lunch. As far as work, I know he put his own chair together and was trying to get his computer set up.
The trip to the studio for jazz and tumbling was a little less eventful.
She is doing a really good job in all of her classes. She always amazes me with how well she knows her dances. However, she told me the other day "I don't think I should participate in dance anymore. I just want to do cheerleading." We will have to work that one out later.

She makes fun of some of my work habits, but I know she is much the same.
For example: delegation
I struggle delegating tasks to others because I know they will screw it up and I can do it better and faster.
This morning I have Kayla up and dressed an hour before the bus arrives. Emily still gets up and makes sure we are getting ready. I think she was surprised, and reminds me when the bus comes.
Then 20 minutes later she comes out to remind me to get Kayla a jacket. Why doesn't she sleep late?
I emphatically tell her to go back to bed. I've got it covered.
End of story...Both girls were fed. Kayla got on the bus with her backpack. Too bad Em didn't sleep late.
And I forgot to give Kayla a jacket.

Before the girls went to bed Friday night, Caroline spent the evening making us laugh. She was walking around with a purse on her arm (which had her car keys in it) talking away on her toy cell phone. And she was having some serious conversations and really nodding her head. It was really cute. I was trying to take pictures of her, but she would always walk away from me. Here is one I got of her before we managed to get a clip in her hair. She was having a good time.
Saturday morning Andy let me sleep late. He took the girls to get breakfast and then to the store. That was absolutely wonderful.
Kayla had a soccer game in the afternoon. Sue came to stay with Caroline, so I was actually able to watch the game.
That picture makes me laugh. I caught Kayla just as she was turning to yell at someone.
After the game, Andy and Kayla put some ribs on the grill. While they were cooking, Kayla got to fly her new kite. This is her first time to have a kite. She really had a good time.

Ater church we went to my dad's house for lunch. All of the kids have an egg hunt outside. Kayla loves Easter with her cousins.
Caroline was a pro after about the first minute of hunting.
Caroline, Kayla, Isabel, Nicholas, Olivia
It was a really nice day. The kids had a wonderful time together and the food was delicious. Thank you, Sue, for all that you do to make these gatherings so nice.
