Creepy Halloween Store!

Posted: December 26, 2012 in Friends, Holidays

Sept 25, 2012: L and I took the kids to the Spirit Halloween Store. I must say, they have gotten super creepy! Z just loved it and wasn’t afraid at all! Not even at bedtime. I am sure we will be visiting this store again!

I had to go back and get the jumping spider. It is so fun and scares the poop right out of you when it goes off!

School project

Sept. 24, 2012: I was volunteering in Z’s class one day and saw this on the bulletin board outside of this classroom. Since school started earlier this month, I am sure they are getting the kids to write about themselves to share with the class. I just love what Z wrote!

Sept 11, 2012: As I said in earlier posts, I started a Cub Scout Pack for the kids at Z’s school. Well this was our first Pack meeting. We got a few more boys signed up that night. We are going to have a great year in scouting!

Z got to carry the flag for the first flag ceremony.

Sept 9, 2012: Our first Pack meeting is coming up and I wanted to have signs to show the boys where to sit. You see, there are different “dens” and each “den” is broken into grade level. Since this is our first meeting, I wanted to have signs for the boys so Z wanted to help his daddy make the signs. Good job guys! They turned out great!

Meet the 3rd grade teacher

Posted: December 26, 2012 in School

Aug 31, 2012 we got to go meet Z’s 3rd grade teacher. She seems very nice! Z had a very rough half a school year this past year since we moved in the middle of the school year. Hoping for a great 3rd grade year!

Waiting to meet the teacher. Super nervous!

…to annoy the living crap out of everyone!

Seriously, these geese were not afraid of cars! In fact, when you honk at them it just pisses them off and they move slower. So there is nothing else to do but wait for them to cross and enjoy the insanity that they offer. Where else but WA! Gotta love it!

Expaners in Z’s mouth

Posted: December 26, 2012 in General Information

Back in Feb 2012, Z had to get expanders in his mouth the prepare him for braces. Well, he broke to top one at some point and it was now time (Aug 28, 2012) to move up to getting a top retainer to hold his mouth in place until braces. Basically we are waiting for two more teeth to come in before the braces go on.
