Puzzle Time

 The four year old is starting to get used to our crazy life this month.  He was really unsettled by the move to the new place, especially since we have had to come back to the old house every day for daycare.  My kids weren't used to getting up so early and have been really off schedule.

On top of that, he started preschool this month.  He goes to a specialized preschool where all his therapists are to help with his autism.  We've been trying to help him adjust and work on some of the things they work on with him too.  Puzzles are a big part of his therapy sessions - both physical puzzles, and digital ones on an ipad.

Yesterday I helped him with a Spiderman puzzle (which ironically matched the Spiderman shirt).  When he came home from preschool, Spiderman on his shirt had sunglasses - a sticker someone had put on his shirt. I didn't get a picture of it, but it was really cute!

 Like I said, we've been really running ragged.  The two year old is SO off schedule.  He napped right after we got to town yesterday, and didn't wake up until after lunch, when it was time to drop off the four year old for preschool.  I didn't give him a nap in the afternoon because he had slept all morning.  Then he fell asleep on the way home and stayed that way most of the evening, only waking long enough to eat a little dinner, then heading right to bed.  Thankfully we are down to three more days of this and then we can settle in to a more normal routine.

 We're expecting snow.  We got home last night and the wind started blowing a storm in.  I don't know what the wind speed was, but it was pretty bad.  Thankfully we only have two small windows on the side of the house that the wind blows from.

I loved the shadows in this picture. The field was a bright gold color.  The shadow in the middle is our house and the one to the right is a barn.  The shadows make it look like we have houses right next to others, but that's not the case.

It was already starting to put down some snow in the mountains last night.  We're supposed to get hit today... and we have another football game tonight.
