6th Week of School, September 23-26

Nothing special this week. They talked about their families. They had to do homework and have it due at the beginning of the week. It had to be a poster with their family, favorite place, favorite food, and all of it labeled! Jaycob did a very nice poster! Forgot to take a picture though! I'll be sure to post it when we get it back!

County Fair 2008

Today we went to the fair again this year like I said we would last year. We didn't spend nearly as much time with the animals this year as last. The kids were just to weary of them. We made it through one side of a barn and one side of the rabbit and fowl section. That was enough for them! Abygail held her noise the entire way through both saying she smelled something. It was too cute!
We played 1 game this year. The one they loved last year were they got to pick a duck and pick a prize. Jaycob got a car and Abygail picked a stuffed duck.
This year we were able to ride a couple rides! It started with a train, the kids and I rode that around the track more then a few times. They enjoyed it, to me it was the train ride that never ends!! The whole time they were riding the train they seen the kiddie roller coaster and wanted to go on it... Problem being 1)we didn't think Jaycob would handle it well by himself and 2)we didn't have enough tickets for all of us to ride. So we talked them into these cars instead. Jaycob and Abygail seemed to LOVE it!

Afterwards we then introduced them to cotton candy! It didn't go over so well with Jaycob, he's a texture eater like his father and me. Abygail was all about it. Did it taste sweet? Yep, she ate it up! Between her and I the bag has been gone for about 2 hours now...
Note: Daddy has more pictures, I'll hopefully add them tomorrow.

5th Week of School, September 16-17

Well this week was an extra short school week. Jaycob didn't have school Thursday because it was Early Dismissal and since he's an afternoon student he doesn't go to school. And all the students had Friday off. It's the weekend of the fair and so many kids are part of the 4-H around here that they just assume cancel school for the kids than to have them all absent, so I've been told!

Why Oh Why?

Why oh why won't my children fall asleep in their beds? Abygail falls asleep right outside her bedroom door. Jaycob falls asleep just inside his doorway! When we go to bed we move both of them to their beds. Abygail gets up appx 3am and moves back to the floor at the foot of Older Sister's bed. Jaycob has been staying in his bed the last 3 nights, but before that you'd find him on his floor come morning too! What do they have against their beds??

Waiting for the Bus

This is what waiting for the bus looks like. Accompanied by an occasional child blowing bubbles, drawing with chalk, or kicking/throwing some balls!

3rd Week of School, September 2-5

The first paper he said had his snack on it. They were crackers he had to count he said, all I know is they were greasy. They left little round grease marks all over the paper!

3rd: As I got Jaycob off the bus today all I hear are children screaming, "Jaycob I love you! Jaycob we love you". Yeah it was crazy! That was the loudest I've ever heard the kids on the bus and they were all screaming at my child like he was in a boy band! The bus driver said that when kids get on the bus that's the first thing they say, "Where's Jaycob?" or tells Jaycob HI!

I'm so thrilled he's well liked! As a parent I think this is something we all worry about. The fact that all the kids on the bus are in his class really helps I think. I ask him about all his friends and he has no info... All well!!

4th: Woo Hoo! I've been waiting for this! Book orders were sent home today, our first one! Now I just have to remember they're due on Wednesday the 17th!!
