Skylar has entered a new phase, the Cars phase, everything is Lightning McQueen and Mater... He still LOVES his Spongebob and Blues Clues, but Cars is taking center stage. Today he got his new Lightning McQueen bubble machine and his GEO track train. So we have been busy bees.
Moni and Chan got the WASL test scores today and both passed with flying colors!!!! Its so great to have wonderful smart kids. Chan went with some friends Tuesday to get the new HALO game, and let me tell you homework and chores have been getting done at super light speed so he can get online and play with his friends. Moni is looking forward to staying over night at one of her best friends houses Friday, and then they will stay with us on Sat.
My dads been up quite a bit the past few weeks, its been great to see him and visit. He has been working on his RV while Joyce (my step mom) and my little sis tour Europe.
Im starting to get my game plan and mind set to home school Sky, he knows so much I dont want to bore him, I hope to start next week.
I am so blessed to have such a wonderful little man!
there is nothing better then a child who wakes up each and every day with a smile on... it makes the start of each day so wonderful :)
Chan and Moni start the first full week of school this week, so far both seem to be happy with school, classes and not so happy with how heavy the backpacks are. I swear they are both going to need a chiropractor soon.
Were getting ready for fall, next weekend we will have a few trees taken down, should make some good fire wood. Keiths busy with work and trying to get our place ready for winter.
Other then that, not to much is happening. we hope you all have a great week!
So as most of you know we are looking at a duel flu season this year (yikes) The regular flu is enough to send me into germ Phoebe shock, but two...Dear Lord.... I know to most of the world I would appear to be a freak about the flu, always reading and watching, checking flu maps and getting CDC and WHO updates, but in the world in which I live, it is very necessary.
This year we are changing things up a bit... Skylar will not have a teacher come to the house this year and he will not have speech come to the house this year. The risk of them bringing something with them from the school is just too high, and to be honest... its not worth the risk. So I will be teaching Skylar this year, and I have to say he is doing great. He knows all the basics and then some, we are working on writing numbers and his ABCs, so far so good. And his speech has improved so much over the summer, he is putting 7 words together, and they make sense.
Moni and Chan will have to come home everyday this year and shower and change. normally we dont start this until about the end of November, but because the flu is already hear and going, we are doing it now. They also are not allowed to use my phone, and have t clean their phones every day. Backpacks will stay outside on the deck until I Lysol them and let them sit for 10 mins, then they can come in the house.
I have been doing my regular flu cleaning all year this year, so I feel pretty confident about our hard surfaces, door knobs and light switches, I also clean remotes regularly, vacuum and dust every day and do my best to keep all germs at bay.
So the downer of this is holidays, to be honest I dont know if we will be having anyone over and in the house until spring... yes spring.
I just wish that people would try to prevent the flu and not just prepair for it, Im getting pretty tired of reading news articles about schools preparing for the flu, but no one is taking the time to educate our children on how to prevent the flu. I can only hope and pray that it does not hit home and that my family will stay healthy.
So please, everyone: wash your hands, cough and sneeze into your elbow, and if your sick (stay home)
Wednesday we will all head out to do some shopping, look out Target hear we come, Moni and Chan need a few more things before school starts on thursday, and Skylar says he needs some new toys. Should be fun!!!!
Sky and his mail box
