Jamaica -- ya mon!

James & I celebrated our 10th anniversary by going to Jamaica! Our original plan was to go back to the same resort (Sandals Inn) where we spent our honeymoon. The week before we left, we got a call that they had overbooked, and they were upgrading us to their flagship resort, Sandals Montego Bay. We got a 3rd floor room with a balcony & oceanside view... it was beautiful! Just a short walk past the fountain, across the bridge by the swim-up piano bar, and we were on the beach. We spent a wonderfully relaxing week soaking up the sun. Maybe soaking up a little too much sun, because we both got burned pretty good, but what do you expect? We went snorkeling, rode a hobie-cat, watched a guy try to windsurf (and decided we were better off watching!), read on the beach, and just had a good relaxing time. I can't wait to go again... hopefully it won't be another 10 years before we get to go back!

Day in K

Friday, April 30, AJ went to Day in K at Thomas Elementary. The pre-kindergarteners get to visit their new school, meet the Kindergarten teachers, take a tour of the building, ride on a school bus, & eat lunch in the cafeteria. (He was bummed about not getting to try out the new playground, but it was raining.) He was super excited and looked forward to the big day all week! He was pretty nervous at first, and I think it was because there were a ton of kids & all their parents there. We broke up into groups, and after a while he really warmed up. He loved the fact that there are both stairs and ramps in his new school, and he is really excited about getting to try some of the specials classes. They rotate between 5 specials: P.E., Art, Music, Computers & Library. AJ says he is really excited about going to the gym and learning more about computers. Go figure... :)
