Second week back at work and I had to go to a conference in Orlando. I would have passed, but I was the conference chairperson, so I had to give the opening remarks, moderate some sessions, etc. Luckily, Nana (my mom) was able to drive to Orlando and watched Ensley during the day while I attended the conference. Apparently, Nana decided to have a photo shoot with Ensley while Mommy was working because this is what I found on my camera when I got back...
The next week after our Orlando trip, Caden had his first day of big boy school! When did my little boy become a big boy?!? He wears uniforms everyday and takes a backpack. We chose to put him in a religious private school since they have smaller class sizes and we liked that they go to chapel every week. He has to be at school by 8:15 or he is considered tardy, which is a big change for us since with daycare, you get there when you get there. So, needless to say, our morning routine starts a little earlier now.
Charleston was a quick trip...we headed out Wednesday evening, spent the night with great grandmother in Macclenney. Spent Thursday night in Charleston and then drove back home on Friday.

The following Monday, I had another work trip to Chicago. Again, I would have passed, but this was the concluding session of a leadership program, which usually takes place in May and they waited on me to have the baby so that I could attend, so I felt obligated...This was the first time leaving Ensley over night. I was very nervous! I definitely didn't leave Caden overnight this early! This time, Grammie came over to help daddy with both kids. Everyone survived! I was probably the one that had the worst experience involving cancelled flights, lost luggage, midnight trips to walgreens, I could go on...
In between all of the travelling, Caden still loves "his baby"...and loves to hold her.
