Carson's preschool class went to the Andelin farm today for a field trip. We saw baby chicks, a baby goat, a baby cow, a burrow, a couple of goats and some chickens and horses. We also got to go on a hayride around the property. Of course, I never think to bring my camera (argh!) and so that's why Carson is drawing a picture to go along with this post. We got to feed the goats and some of the kids got to gather some eggs from the chickens. The person in the picture is Natalie, the woman who lives on the farm and showed us around. The little figure in front of the red barn is a little chick. Even though it was really cold and windy, we all had a good time!

I had the BIG ultrasound today, where hopefully you can see the baby's gender, but it didn't work out that way. The baby was all scrunched up and legs were pretty close together through the whole ultrasound, so they couldn't really say for sure. The woman doing the ultrasound said she pretty much thinks it's a girl, but then my doctor looked over the images afterwards and he said he couldn't really be sure from those pictures. So in a month, hopefully he'll take another look and baby will cooperate and we can see better! I'd really like to know for sure.
I registered Carson for kindergarten today; it wasn't as bad as I imagined. I thought there was going to be a really long line and lots of parents waiting to get their kid in the right track, etc. I showed up a few minutes after 8am, and there were only 5 moms there, waiting for things to start. They weren't even in a line yet. They were all just sitting in the cafeteria, waiting for 8:30am, when registration was supposed to begin. So I sat down and waited with them, and during the next 20 minutes or so, only about 3 or 4 more parents showed up to register. And only about half of them were there for kindergarten; the other half were there to register for the first grade. Very different from the stories I heard about registration in California! Where parents get in line at 5am, only to wait for hours for registration to be completed. I was done with the process at about 9:30am. So Carson is going to be done with preschool at the beginning of June, then he'll start kindergarten in mid-July! I chose the Blue Track because the first month off is October, and that is when I think the new baby will be coming, so I figured it would be nice to not worry about getting Carson off to school or whatever during that month. He might even ride the bus, we'll see! But really, there wasn't much difference between the Blue and Green tracks; just that one is morning kindergarten, the other is afternoon. They both had benefits and drawbacks, so it was hard to choose. But it's all done now. Yay!
