Ben had his annual eye Doctor appointment yesterday. David took him to Phoenix. The doctor saw him and said how much he's grown and that his eyes will likely have changed a lot. But, they hadn't, which is great. It was just a slight tweak in his prescription and they were out of there for another year. Literally to Phoenix and back and the appointment in under 3 1/2 hours.
I was refilling my printer ink cartridge because you know, I do anything to save a few pennies. I had to get the ink up in the tube so it would fill the syringe without a bunch of bubbles. And pop, it went everywhere. I thought it was just on the countertop and floor. It cleaned up easy breezy. No problem. Then, four hours later, I'm walking back to the kitchen from down the hallway and noticed something on the ceiling. Our 14 foot ceiling!
I had this giant story ready for David about a huge octopus that came in our house and inked on our ceiling. But, the kids threw me under the bus the second David got home from work. Oops. Luckily we have some paint and a tall ladder.
Emily was bored the other day, so she made herself a jump rope out of grocery bags. But, then that got boring quick, so she turned it into a headband. Rather creative.
Last night was the meet and great at the school, and I think it's going to be a great year! Here's Ben with his best bud, Andrew. They are in the same class.
Here's Ben trying to look upset over the stack of books waiting for him at his desk.
The school mascot came in to see the kids.
Everything went great and the kids all have wonderful teachers. Em and Ben both got some of their best friends in their class. Noah got some kids he knew from his class last year, but his best buddy, Levi, was not in his class. But, they can still play together at recess and lunch. Noah is my most social kid, so I don't need to worry about him. He'll be just fine.
I'm volunteering in Noah's class already today. I already got roped in, but that's all good. If I can make things easier for the a teacher, it's the least I can do. Three more sleeps and school starts!
