The kids are doing well in school!
Pumpkin Muffin has a teacher that taught me when I was in school! There are always rumors about how tough she is as a teacher, and even though I tried to dispell them, Pumpkin was a bit nervous. Now, she knows I was right, loves her, and has even positioned herself as the teacher's helper/pet. All is right in the 4th grade world.
Fuzzy is happy, too. I suspect the fact that he hasn't had any homework (neither has Pumpkin) probably helps, but he likes his teachers, too. 6th grade is all about increased responsibility on the student and team building with your peers. So far, so good! Next week, the fun begins, with homework and quizzes, etc.
Tomorrow, at 7am, Hubby and the boys leave on a Boy Scout bus trip to Howe Caverns and Cooperstown, in upstate NY. Saturday they will visit the caverns and stay overnight there and Sunday am move on further north to the Baseball Hall of Fame for the day.
You may remember that last year we went to the Hall of Fame as a family. They are so excited to go back! And, they are even more excited that their grandpa is going on this trip with them, too! They wanted grandpa to see all the cool stuff at the Hall of Fame last year, and now, they will get to share it with him! My dad has never been there and is pretty excited himself!
It will be just us girls at home! My mom, Pumpkin Muffin and myself! It should be nice!
So, Maxine basically sums up the way I feel today!
My body is missing the Orencia (my rheumatoid arthritis medicine) and adding to that a few days of rain and my joints are positively squeaky and sore. UGH!
However, I am going to refrain from complaining right now and put a smile on my face and face the world!
(or at least my family and pets for today...lol)
