Sorry no new pics....nothing really going on to take pics of. We've just been hanging out going to work and school. The kids have been their usual busy selves.
I have to take a moment to brag on Kaylyn. She got straight A's on her report card again. She was so proud of herself and I'm proud of her too. She has been working hard this year and it has paid off. She is now reading "chapter" books in school, which is a big accomplishment for her. It took her a while to figure out that she didn't have to read the entire book in one sitting and she didn't have to start the book over at chapter 1 when she picked it up again. It was taking her forever to read a book doing it this way...wonder why! But, she finally got it all figured out and has been bring home these chapter books for a couple of weeks now. She's still doing the dance thing every week. She really enjoys it and can't wait until competition season gets here.
Luke has just been going to school learning new things everyday. He is really having a great time in his new school and has adjusted well. The problem is he's gotten a little too comfortable. Yesterday he got in trouble for telling fibs. He asked his teacher if he could get out the puppets and play with them and she told him "no" because it was almost time to go outside and then snack. He then decided to tell his other teacher, Ms. Claudia, that Ms. Carla had told him they weren't going outside, or to snack, and they weren't going to have nap-time so he could play with the puppets. Needless to say Ms. Claudia didn't believe him and the truth came out, Luke got to spend some time in time-out. I also can't wait until all of the Halloween candy is finally gone. I've had to hide it under lock and key to keep him out of it, but not before he stored a stash in his room! He's a sneaky little stinker!
I'm close to wrapping up this semester in school. I can't wait for this one to be over! Let's just say, it's a little on the boring side. Really....how interesting can Geriatric nursing be?! My other class is Assessment for Professional Nurses....I really don't mean to have a bad attitude, but I learned how to do this 9 years ago! Anyway, that being said, I've had to really force myself to do school work this semester. Oh well, it will be over in about 3 weeks and then it's on to the next semester!
Chloe's surgery date has been changed yet again. It is now set for December 15. The date had to be changed because there are still issues with her insurance. Hopefully this will all be resolved before her new surgery date. In the mean time, she's growing everyday and is at such a fun age. She did have a minor surgery this week to fix a clogged tear duct in her eye and did great. After the surgery she acted like nothing had happened at all, hopefully things will go as smoothly with her CI recovery. Just over a month until that girl gets her some new ears! What a great Christmas present! She also has a birthday coming up on December 2. I can't believe she's already 1 year old!
Chris and I had an anniversary last week.....9 years. We went to eat at P.F. Chang's to celebrate (my fav), tried to go see a movie, but there was nothing playing either of us wanted to see, so we ended up coming home and renting a movie. It was nice to have a night out without the kids, which is a rare event for us.
Oh....and how 'bout that tide?! Number 1 baby! The Fall season just happens to be my absolute favorite time of year for 2 reasons....(1.) I love the weather change to cooler weather before it gets so cold it hurts. Love watching the leaves change colors and fall off the trees. Love driving down the road with leaves blowing in front of and behind me, (2.) ALABAMA football. (Okay, so maybe that's 4 reasons, but whatever) I have always loved watching college football, not one for the pros, high school football is okay, but college football is the bomb! Every Saturday (that I'm not working) you will find me glued to the T.V. watching Bama play. I've always done this, even in the not so good seasons, watch the game from start to finish. The tide seems to be on a come back tour, they look totally awesome this year! Can they hang on to the number 1 spot and get passed Florida in the SEC championship? I think they can, but even if they don't no one can debate they have been the biggest upset in college football this year. I mean, really....who expected Bama to be in the number one spot at the end of the season? Certainly not anyone in the BCS! ROLLLLLL TIDE ROLL!
