Adrian came home today with what looks like a wax museum spiderman picture. It looks strange. Adrian loved it! He carried that picture around and yelled at it all afternoon. When Nevaeh tried to take it from him today he said “gimmie the picture” Wow. Wow. Love that. I guess I haven’t mentioned all of Adrian’s awesomeness this week.The other day I was trying to take an afternoon nap while my hubby watched the kids. Adrian was humming non-stop and it was irritating me after a couple hours of it so best for me to go have a little nap. While I was up there I heard Adrian reciting Humpty Dumpty. It was pretty awesome. There are more instances but I just can’t think of them, I should make notes of them as they happen because it’s really amazing.
The reason I bring up the Spiderman picture though is because almost each day he’s coming home with little Spiderman trinkets almost each day so I got to thinking ” I wonder if the teacher wants me to send these back?” See, last year I would allow Adrian to bring his little action figure to school if he was having trouble parting with it and the teacher asked me not to let him bring these things because it was too distracting during school so I taught him to say “bye Spiderman!” and leave it behind. I’m starting to realize this teacher may want Adrian to bring something to distract him, especially at certain times of the day. Yet another thing I need to bring up with her.
It’s getting so chilly here in Iowa. I think our high was in the low 60′s today. I was freezing most the day, not complaining, I love fall! I shut all the windows today and put some fans away. I packed away shorts, dresses, and tank tops. I’ve been searching for new recipes, preferably ones that smell up the whole house with yummy smells and cook for long periods of time so they heat up the house a little touch. I love love fall. I love the change of the trees. I love the smell of fallen leaves. I love going for walks in the brisk fall air. My favorite!
Another great fun fall activity…Halloween! Sanura asked me what my favorite holiday was the other day and I had to say Halloween! I love helping the kids get all dressed up. I went down and searched through my bin of costumes and the only one I need to get a costume for is Sanura. I would prefer her to be a monarch butterly that I saw at the store but she’s leaning towards a spider. Oh well…mom’s can only choose the costume for so long I suppose. Anyway, more to come about Halloween later I am sure.
I’m feeling really good, my aprehension from back to school worries is finally begining to fade away. It was just a hard month or so but I am feeling great.
It’s been a while since I’ve shared any pictures on the blog so here are a few:
