Another Snow Day

Seriously. We are getting to the point where we can't handle a full week of school. I have stopped working much farther ahead then the next days lesson plans since it is hard to know when the next day will actually be. So today was full of a lot of non-school and fun stuff. Oh I take that back. I did finish up a novel for school, but for me, that is pretty fun. Here is what I did:

Slept in.
Made some cards, took pictures of them and posted the pictures on my card blog.
Got our tax stuff together for our tax return.
Finished a book that I was reading for fun.
Spent some time on the computer on Facebook and Stumbling around.
Played some on-line games.
Watched an episode of Cake Boss (not nearly as good as Ace of Cakes, I always skip over the parts when he is yelling).
Walked to church to drop off some stuff, the post office, and the library.
Read another book (yes, a whole one. It was a quick read and a very engaging story.)
Worked out.
Had some nice meals with my husband.

And soon I will be going to bed. It was a lovely day. But, we need to have some days of school, otherwise this whole quarter will be pretty worthless.

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.
