Julie I will be getting with you to get you the prize! :)
Ok, it has been a stressful week around here.
Rod has been getting up to help me get the kids ready and umm (I love you honey) this is new for us. He has been very helpful. But we are exhausted. I don't sleep good. Haven't in years - since my days in grad school, I think. So, I am waking up around 3 and am unable to go back to sleep. Then getting out of bed before 6 to have some time with Jesus and get the house rolling.
Maggie continues to be our slow poke. She plays and takes the tiniest bites and she could sleep in most days - so waking her up at 6:30am has been a huge change for her. Jared still wakes up at the crack of dawn (many times long before 6a) and thinks he can't go to back to sleep so he doesn't even try.
The kids like school so far. On day 2 of school, Maggie's teacher let them have recess (they usually don't have time for recess as there is too much to cover in 1/2 a day). Maggie told me that she didn't hear the whistle for the end of recess and her teacher had to go looking for her. I am still looking into what additional options there are to aid Maggie more in her education.
The teachers that the kids have are great and we all like them a lot.
Rod's dad, Don, had surgery on Tuesday. The docs had found some really tiny tumors in his prostate. The goal was that by removing the prostate that they would get all of the cancer and he'd be done. The doc says the surgery went well but we are still awaiting the official word. Don was home the next day and we went to go see him yesterday. He was up and around and I think that he enjoyed the supper I brought. :)
