So much has been going on here recently. Part of me wants to complain and bitch about everything, but I just have to be thankful for what we have at the present time.
Kids and I have been keeping busy. Lots of reading, homework, outside playing, cleaning, going through toys and clothing, and just spending time with each other. Seth is very into chapter books at the moment. We have been going through them like crazy!!! I absolutely love this because not only do I love to read, but it helps him learn and gets him interested in reading as well. We have a few more chapters to read in Charlotte’s Web.. Then moving onto Stewart little. Sophie does okay while we read the chapter books, but I always give her some other books to look at while I read.
Seth is doing amazing in school. It’s hard to believe the difference from last year and this year. I honestly think it had to do with his teacher. As I heard many and many complaints about the kindergarten witch. His teacher this year, Mrs. Ford, is absolutely amazing. You can tell she really cares and loves to teach!!
Sophie has been doing flash cards at home and counting. She can count up to 10 by herself most days… Other days it’s 2 3 9 10, when she is in a hurry. She knows her alphabet, just practicing on identifying the letters now.
My grandma. My sweet Wanda has been living with cmml (cancer) for almost 10 years. She was recently and unwillingly moved to a nursing home due to her power of attorney (idiot). Hopefully for just a short period until she gets stronger to be back at her home. I must say.. You have to fight for what you believe in and fight for those who can’t. Even if you can’t change the outcome. It’s the principle of trying. So just trying to stay positive and stay strong for her, because she doesn’t need the weakness or negativity right now. My sister in Connecticut is sending things to decorate her room, books, word searches, phone, and we are also possibly looking for a TV for her. Stay positive and stay strong Wandie, Treasa, Ashley and, myself.
We went to the zoo this past weekend. The weather was amazing and the kids had so much fun.. Much needed break away from Hannibal. We also went to bonkers for Seth’s school night on Friday. Very glad they do things like that so he has lids he knows he can play with. He had a wonderful time and so did Soph.
This weekend we have a birthday party to attend, trick or treat trail walk, and folk life festival. I wasn’t planning on taking the kids.. But I love the atmosphere, so we will be going.
Hope everyone has a good week. Just please keep my grandma, sister, mom, and I in your thoughts as we are dealing with a tough situation and dealing with idiotic people.
Kind of blurry, but they just started to hold hands and walk. Had to snap a fast picture before they decided to fight with each other.
