Day 54

Yesterday I bought tickets to take A to see The Nutcracker. He is very excited about it!  I asked him if he knew what a ballet was and he didn't.  He knows the story and is excited to see it. He is also excited to see a full orchestra play! I can't wait! I don't think i've ever actually seen The Nutcracker live myself.

Well the short school week is over and A is super excited for Thanksgiving. He and I made the pumpkin pies last night...lets hope they last until tomorrow!

Looks like someone fell asleep on top their headphones.

Day 47

The life of a gymnast

This is his rip after having just over a day to heal.  These happen all the time, you just hope they don't happen right before a meet or during a meet.  At States back in march he got a rip just about as big as this one during warm ups on the high bar and he still did fantastic and was first place on rings that day.  He was very proud of this rip because he said he didn't cry at all it just stung a little when the skin came off. His coaches say he is becoming a man, haha.

Day 46

Nothing to report today. A had a good practice yesterday but he got a big rip on his hand that will need some TLC for a couple days. In gymnastics lingo a rip is when is blister forms than rips open leaving the skin raw on the palm of your hand. Very common.

Day 43

Today is the end of season party for soccer where he will get his trophy.  I always think this is the real reason that he plays sports...it's all about the medals and trophys, hahaha.

Day 42

For some reason A has been sleeping in my bed for over a week. When asked why he does not have an answer. Oh well. I just wish he would stop hitting me in the face all night long...

Day 39

Brrrrrr it's cold out there.  I think our random 70 degree days are no longer a part us.  There is no school thursday or friday for the teachers convention so see you on monday!

Day 38

A is completely exhausted from yesterday but he didn't realize it. It all blew up last night with him crying in the locker room at practice because one of his coaches was being mean by making him hold a "hand stand on the parallel bars for 10 whole seconds and his arms hurt"!  Luckily this week is easy for him since he is doesn't have school thursday and friday so he can relax. He doesn't even have to do his big writing for language arts this week.

Day 37

Wow, it's november already?! A had a great weekend and had a ton of fun at his gymnastics meet yesterday. It went late and was far away but I was able to get him home in time to trick or treat for a half hour. At the meet yesterday there was a halloween shirt decorating contest that our team won!  A got a king sized hershey bar for it!

Halloween Scrimmage

This was A's first meet of the season.  It is just a fun meet, no scores count for anything. It is a great way to get the boys going for the season and if they make a mistake it doesn't affect anything. This wasn't his best meet, but it was a great start to the season! His next meet isn't until January so he has plenty of time to polish up his skills.
