Busy day!

Today was a momentous day. It started early. I was so nervous that I woke up early, and had to rouse my 2 sleeping babies at 7am. It was Kira's orientation day at preschool! Unfortunately, I didn't take many good shots, but here is one of the 5 teachers at Les Activités Préscolaires de Brossard. Kira's teacher is a bundle of energy named Marie-France. This school has a fantastic reputation from every mom I've talked to with children there. I can't wait to see Kira blossom over the course of this season, and to be an active and involved parent in the school. I promise to take better photos for a future post.

So, the day started off with Kira making a great entry into the world of school. Then, we were off to Home Start's office, where we delivered close to $200 that Kira raised through friends and family as she ran in a mini-marathon fundraiser for the organization. Actually, the event took place in Lemoyne near us, but we had to leave town and so we took the marathon with us. Kira's sponsors all signed her shirt, and she ran across her (great) Auntie Sumire's lawn. Here's a photo of Kira crossing the finish line. For more photos, you can see my album here.

Finally, to cap the day, Calvin started crawling! Well, he isn't doing the classic crawl yet, but he can get from place to place in a forward direction now, and is thrilled himself with this new development! Now I have to be extra-careful watching these 2 kids as they continue to grow and explore their surroundings!
