Oh Dear...

It's been a couple weeks, wish I could say we were busy doing something cool and fun, but no. Kelsey got some icky virus last week that kept her home one day from school. Then this past Sunday, Drew became pretty congested and when he gets sick, it's ugly. He ended up coming home from school Monday. He barely made it through school Tuesday and Wednesday. I think he then started Kelsey's virus Wed. night as he was up every 3 hrs with diarrhea. So he stayed home yesterday. Today is their first field trip to the pumpkin farm and I was praying he'd be better to be able to attend. I woke him up a little early this morning to check on him. I whispered in his ear, "are you going to the pumpkin farm today?" And with a big smile he shook his head yes. I told him I want him to pick out the shiniest, coolest, most orange pumpkin he can find! I'm excited to see them after school today and

I had totally forgotten our friends took us out for the last boat ride of the year
2 (3?) weeks ago. It was a bit chilly on the boat but the sun was awesome.

Fall is here

We are a busy crew since school started. Parent-teacher conferences are this week but I don't think we will hear any surprises. We routinely see Drew's teacher outside of work and the benefit of Craig being there, we are constantly updated on their behavior and learning. Kelsey had a bad run of "accidents" while at school. Almost every day last week, she came home in different clothes. She was also wetting bed, and not getting up to use the bathroom at night like she usually does. I remembered almost exactly the same time last year, I took the kids in thinking they had UTI's because they were wetting bed for no reason and the odor was off. They ended up telling me it was just a phase, growing pains, or whatever but NOT a UTI. So then when it happened this year, the only correlation is starting school again. Maybe she is stressed or tired or all the newness had overcame her. She hasn't had an accident at school all week but she has had to wear a pull-up to bed, which is almost punishment for her because she dislikes them so much. But I.CAN.NOT wash her bedding every morning.

Otherwise we are getting ready for the end of the month. Homemade Halloween costumes and a couple trick or treating events will be keeping us busy :)

This was from the middle of September . The sun was wonderful
and the kids were determined to fly a kite.

They play so nice together when they get home from school. I attribute
this to NOT being in the same K4 classroom.

Last Friday we went out for dinner and craft beer. Kelsey entertained
these ladies (our friends/Craig's coworkers) the entire time!
