Weekly Happenings: This past week didn’t really hold anything that was too out of the ordinary. This morning, though, we decided to kick off the beginning of Thanksgiving Break by visiting Bass Pro Shop. They already have all the fun games and activity areas set up for the kids for Christmas. We went ahead and got a picture with Santa (since it wasn’t too busy yet…once December hits, it gets crazier and crazier). Last year, Abigail didn’t want anything to do with Santa…that was a stranger-danger person she didn’t know. She didn’t cry, but there was no way she was going to sit on his lap unless I was right next to her…and even then, the picture captures her trying to slither out of his grasp, haha. This year was completely different. She ran up to Santa and gave him a huge hug and willingly climbed onto his lap. It was awesome. She also waved goodbye to him, saying, “Bye, Santa!” 😊
The Weekly Weather: It’s been mild, which has been nice.
What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s been busy at work. He’s taking this next week off (well, he did tell them to call him if something broke and needed fixing), which will be nice.
What Sarah’s Been Up To: Not too much out of the ordinary for me…
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He has been learning a lot about the Iroquois Confederacy in GT. He liked that they worked together to try to create peace. He even got to use beads to come up with a design for a wampum belt which he thought was pretty cool. He’s continuing to work hard in his regular class and even got to move his behavior clip up to blue. They have everyone start on green for great behavior, but clips can either be moved up to blue when they are doing an exceptional job or down to various other colors if they’re having challenges. They always get to move clips back to green at the end of each day, unless they are on blue…they do get to stay on blue. He was also excited to tell me that the second grade classes won the turkey bowl. 🙂
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s been her typical happy-go-lucky self. Yesterday, I was coming down the stairs when the light all of a sudden went off. I finished coming down the stairs to find her by the light switch with a big grin on her face. Then she yelled, “Surprise, Mom! Happy Birthday!” After she said this, she held up her hand as if she were holding something in it and said, “Here! Blow out the candle!” I’m telling you…it’s a daily adventure raising her.
