If This Is Any Indication...

It is November 11th. A Tuesday. Roughly 9:00 a.m. And we are home. Today marks the first snow day of the school year. A bit early for my tastes, but when the roads are covered in a sheet of ice with more ice/snow on the way it really isn't good to have any more people on then needed, especially lots of kids who just got their drivers license. I would rather have snow days in January when students and teachers alike are sick of school.

The sad part is today was not even going to be a normal school day. We were going to go to a Veteran's Day program at the public school and then to a seminar on youth culture led by Walt Mueller. We were really looking forward to this because it was going to be a day where we didn't have to teach, but the students were probably going to learn a lot of things.

Wilbert did say I gave him the best birthday present ever when I told him we had no school today. Happy Birthday!

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
