Yesterday was a long long day. Besides a trip to the grocery store (to stock up on important things, like French fries), we didn't do very much all day.

Finally 5pm rolled around, so we piled into the car and drove out to attend orientation at Buzz's new gan. It's located about 25km away, in another small yishuv. The gan looks great. The staff seem sweet, warm, and caring. (We've heard rave reviews about them from our new neighbors who are beginning their second year at the gan.) It is a special gan, a gan safa. They have speech therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, and other developmental specialists on staff to help the kids gain and grow as much as possible. There are only 14 kids to the three ganenot, which breaks down to a lot of individualized attention - which is pretty great! All in all, I'm sure it is going to be a positive experience. I just need to get over the anxiety of having him take a hasaah twice a day, and the fact that the school is so far away. No more running over on foot to pick him up if he's forgotten something or if he isn't feeling well. It's a little nerve wracking. Especially because I'll be home without any means of transportation most days, and even with a car, it takes almost half an hour to get there.
On a completely different topic, check out our guest suite. Phil cleared out her bedroom in The Sun House, to make space for her JUMBO bed. She needed to get rid of a bookcase, so we adopted it. Now there are shelves for our guests to use! It's a pretty exciting development.

I think the room shaped up quite nicely. I just need to finagle some bed skirts to hide the fact that there are broken legs on both of the bedframes (which explains why they are propped up on crumpled up cardboard boxes. Whatever works, amIright?) 

The last step is just to get some artwork hung up. 
I'm not sure how it's Thursday again. It feels like Sunday. I guess I should do some laundry and figure out a plan for Shabbos. There's a kiddush planned at the shul after davening in honor of our neighbor's new baby. Besides that it's going to be our very first weekend without guests, and without eating out. I don't even know what we'll do to pass the time!
