1 - Burp Talking
Forget reading, writing and arithmetic. Luke has taught himself how to burp talk and it's currently his proudest accomplishment.
2 - Reading
Luke spent his summer reading classic literature like Captain Underpants and Franny K. Stein ;) I told myself that as long as he was reading I was okay with it being what he wanted to read. He just took a reading level test and he's reading at the level of a 5th grader in their 4th month of school. Well.... I guess it worked. He is reading voraciously and we're making lots of trips to the library.
3 - Tomato Juice
I don't remember the first time Luke tried tomato juice, but he's having a total love affair with it right now. In his lunch, when he get's home, with dinner... what eight year old asks for tomato juice when he comes in from playing outside?
1 - Preheating
We're back in our school morning routine and Mason is STRUGGLING! He is my late sleeper and being up at at 'em so early is rough on my sweet boy. He takes a bit to "preheat" in the mornings and I've been getting lots of extra snuggles which I love :)
2 - Sweet Friend
Mason is SUCH a sweet friend. He is always thinking of others and is my kid who pretty much always willingly shares. Last week he came home from school and asked to not have us pack him his favorite after school snack (PB crackers) because that meant he couldn't sit with his friend Abby. Abby has to sit at the peanut-free table and he wanted to sit with her so he said that he wouldn't have a snack so he could sit with his friends. OMG SO SWEET!
3 - Talking After School
This week the floodgates of conversation after school have officially opened. I hear ALL about his day including specials, recess, the puppets in his classroom, after school care, all of it.
1 - Pirate Ship
We had promotion Sunday at church last week and Griffin FINALLY got to play on the big pirate ship playground. For the last year every single Sunday she's asked to go on the "big kid side" of the playroom and it finally happened! We've heard about it all week and she can't wait to go back next week to play on it again.
2 - Christmas Time
She is STILL obsessed with our Chatbook full of pictures of last Christmas. She asks for "Christmastime" on the daily and we're about to have to start a countdown or calendar or something I love that she is just as enthusiastic about all things Holiday as I am. :)
3 - Miss Lisa's House
GG is back at Miss Lisa's house and LOVING IT!!! The play doh, the pink kitchen, the friends! She's excited to go every morning and is chatty chatty about her day when I pick her up. She's pottying like a champ and even wearing underwear during her naps there! We LOVE Miss Lisa and I'm having a hard time believing that this is our last year there.
1 - I'm tired.
Yes ma'am. There's mom tired. There's teacher tired. Then there's teacher/mom tired. It's a whole other level and it is REAL. I'm hoping that after this upcoming weekend I'll be all caught up and my body will be fully adjusted to our schedule. I'm working ahead on lessons and shouldn't be up making new and improved SmartBoard lessons at 1 a.m after this weekend.
2 - Organizational OCD
I think it's just the start of school and new routine and all of that but I have been nesting HARD lately. I've also been highly caffeinated so that could be part of it :) As much as I love cleaning out my dresser after 11 p.m. and re-organizing nail polishes - ain't nobody got time for that.
3 - Ciabatta Bread
I'm currently having a love affair with the take and bake ciabatta bread from the Kroger around the corner from our house. I'm popping pieces of it in the oven every chance I get. It's 8 minutes for warm, crusty goodness and I have to stop myself for making a meal of it twice a day.
Happy Wednesday, Friends!!! What three things have been going on with y'all lately?
