It's funny how sometimes I have nothing of interest to post. Now, I can think of several blog ideas for this week, so I may be updating daily!
First off: Happy Birthday AJ! For those of you who are newer readers, AJ and I met when we were in 3rd grade. My family had just moved back from Perham, and she was my first friend here. I learned quickly that AJ has the best laugh, and I was pretty good at getting her to do it. Someday I will dedicate a post to some funny memories I have with AJ.....
On Friday, I was a helper in Kate's classroom for her Halloween party. Let me tell you that I confirmed why I don't teach this age: I would be way too attached. All weekend I have been obsessing over whether or not some of these kids have good families, friends, a safe home, etc. It's ridiculous how much my heart is affected by this type of stuff. Anyway I had a blast. Some classmates scolded me because I called my daughter Katie. "It's Kate" I was told! I helped the kids make bead bracelets. I can't tell you how many beads spilled all over the floor while I tried to tie them.
I have to also say that Katie has the best teacher. She is kind, patient, and so warm and caring. Kate thinks she walks on water, and I don't blame her!
Halloween was fun too. It was a very nice evening, and because it was Friday, we were able to enjoy the festivities that much more. I ended up taking the three kids out while Thad hung back with Brady. They made a haul! I have been trying to use a little restraint, but dang I love sweets. I want to drop a couple more lbs before I go in for my six week check up. The way I have been 'snacking' is making me think it won't happen.
And finally, I actually had a picture taken with Brady. This is the first since a day or two after his birth!!!!! Pardon the messy kitchen, how I look, and the fact that he is crying....
Coming soon on the blog: Olivia & behavior, Kate's funny art picture, goofy memories with AJ, and who knows what else!
