10-31-15 Happy Halloween

Tim and I had the great honor of escorting a ballerina, Spiderman, and a dragon this evening. We were joined by Ironman, another Spiderman, and an elephant!

After spending some time in the neighborhood we headed to the church for a wonderful fall festival. C was very excited about the cake walk and Big E was excited about the bouncy slide. Baby E was pretty happy to be along for the ride!

It was a wonderful evening!

10-29-15 Crazy Outfit Day

Today was crazy outfit day at school, however C had informed me this morning that it was backwards day so I dressed her in normal clothes (just backwards) and got her out to the bus stop. When the other kids started showing up in their crazy clothes I ran inside and grabbed some things out of her drawer and pulled together a crazy outfit for her in less than a minute! Big points for mom!

The kids were in fine form this evening, so bedtime was quite the struggle. I'm enjoying these few minutes of quiet.

10-28-15 Late Night

It's 10 pm and I just got my final kid to sleep. I had a mops steering team meeting this evening so I put my kids in awanas just for tonight and afterwards I was quickly reminded why I chose not to keep them in the Wednesday night programs. It's just way too late for my little ones.

Hopefully one day soon they will be up for it but we just aren't there yet, especially Big E. He was super fussy when I got him from his class and stayed that way till he passed out in his bed while C was brushing her teeth!

With the boys asleep I took s few minutes to start C's tangram book. She was surprisingly engaged in it. She wanted to know if China was very far away and was amazed to learn that it was further than both Arkansas and Ohio. She was also curious as to if the Tang Dynasty ever made it to Florida! Ha!

She learned some new words like 'Dynasty,' 'overlap,' and 'parallelogram.'

It was nice to get a few quiet moments with her this evening!

This fellow crawled in my bed this morning. Such a sweetheart!

Passed out this evening! Long day for my big guy!

Ha-ha! This one totally looks like a selfie!

10-27-15 Library Day

I think I've mentioned before that C loves library day. Loves it. In fact I think the library is her favorite part of school. So naturally she was excited when I told her that today was library day. I always look forward to seeing what she brings home. Well today's choice is awesome.

Yup... Tangram Puzzles. Describing and comparing attributes of plane geometric shapes.

Just a little light reading before bed.
