The Latest News

So far something weird has happened during play season that really messes up the rehearsal schedule. Usually this involves crazy winter weather which results in no school for days on end. This year however, it is illness. Several members of my play cast have had this crazy fever, sore throat, head ache, no energy illness that takes them out of school for a week. It was tough to hold practice this week due to that. I really hope this taste of spring we have been getting is around to stay. We really don't need a blizzard right now.

In other news, I am attempting to start a few plants inside this year for our garden. I had some seeds that I picked up at a school auction for tomato and pepper, which need to be started inside. So, I thought I would give it a try this year. And if it doesn't work, I am really not out all that much.

Today I went to a shower for Kara, a former college of mine who now lives in the Cities. It was really nice to catch up with her and meet her family. It was a Pampered Chef shower and my first Pampered Chef party. There are a few things that I would like now, but I will just have to wait until there a Pampered Chef party in the area.

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.
