Savannah had her first day of preschool yesterday. She is going to a part time program two days a week for now. They work with her speech therapist, who will pull her and two other kids out of class for thirty minutes for their speech therapy. We are really hoping she will do well in class. She seemed to like her first day!

Her speech therapy through our HMO has been put on hold until January. Savannah has been having a hard time concentrating in those sessions and because of that she has made little to no progress since she started. The therapist and I agreed that she may just need some time to mature.

Beanie Overload

There is nothing really happening around the home front lately. Lots of speech therapy appointments and the anticipation of the start of preschool later this month. Overall everyone is doing very well.

I thought I would share my solution for storing all of Savannah's Beanie babies. She has a lot of them and they are her favorite toys. So I bought a shoe holder and put it on the front of her room door. Savannah really likes that she can see all of her beanies at once now and I like that they now have a home off of her floor!

First Fishing Trip

Last weekend Savannah went on her first fishing trip. Grandpa took us out in his boat for a couple hours of fishing. We stayed in the bay and Savannah was on her best behavior and did very well. We caught quite a few fish and Savannah was amazed by them. She wanted to pet nearly every fish before we released it back into the water.

There were a lot of Navy ships moving around the bay and at one point we got to see a submarine coming into the bay. It was pretty cool. I had never seen one moving around the bay before. Savannah was less than impressed and didn't understand why we are all talking about it.

Grandpa also took us by the bait barge so Sav could see all the sea lions. She loved to hear them barking.


Overall we had great day with some great weather and we can't wait to go out again!

Del Mar Fair

Today was the last day of the San Diego County Fair (aka Del Mar Fair). We were not originally going to go but decided to at the last minute because we know how much Savannah loves to see all of the farm animals. The crowds were not nearly as bad as I thought they were going to be. We got in all the required sights and yummy foods before calling it a day. I am happy we went and Savannah had a great time. It was also her first time doing some of the rides (besides the pony ride). I am also happy to report that Savannah is no longer afraid of any of the animals. Last year she did not want to get any where near the pigs!

Seaworld visit

Since we had received some free tickets to Seaworld we decided to go this week.  We only stayed for a couple hours because it was rather crowded (for our taste) but still managed to pet a few animals, go on a ride, and watch the pet show. Savannah had fun as usual.
