Things that make me happy

Maybe it's because he calls me babe, or maybe it's because he delivers our sweet kernels to my van window. I just know that when I see his pickup in the DQ parking lot, and his over 70 smile beams, I am happy. Another thing that make me happy is when my oldest son dances. He's got the moves. We went to the Coolio concert at the State Fair. Thankfully, we couldn't see or hear much, but the beat made him dance.

We just started to participate in Halloween, and this year oldest son wants go as a biker. I just had this feeling that he would be blessed, as whenever he decides something it almost always comes true. Sure enough, we went to the thrift store and found a motorcycle jacket, bracelet and helmet. Amazing. I'll post pics when my camera is up and running.

Fevers are running amok in our house, so a lot of immune system strength is being built. Pray that it is over soon, as we leave for Atlanta in 9 days. AAaaahh! Ordered some curriculum called Growing with Grammar. It was only $30 for the whole year, and this covers the things that I am most concerned about for oldest. On deck for extras this year include: tennis, basketball, music/choir, art, Awanas, chess club, and various co-ops and workshops done locally. It will be an exciting year, as school ages this year are kindergarten and 3rd grade.

Thus ends our update!

We are using Growing with Grammar too. We are a couple weeks into ours and love it. Have you started yet?

Hope you make it through the ick. That which does not kill us only makes us stronger. Hang in there.
