Caden started drum lessons. It’s loud. He plays in the basement. I can hear them 2 floors up. He is quite the musician, so I try to get over it.
I started chalk painting a little bit. We don’t have the extra money to go out and buy all new furniture, so we painted what we had. It was pretty easy, and looks good.
I had to deal with some unfortunate stuff toward the end of the summer. Life isn’t always easy, and I’m never going to please everyone…then I found this on Instagram. It was exactly what I needed. And then, this glorious day happened. It was PSL time again. I had it 3 days in a row. It came out the day before my birthday. It was like Starbucks little present to me. Then, I woke up one morning and decided to see how many calories my beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte had in it…I get Nonfat and No Whip..surely it wasn’t many. Ugh, a regular size is 210 calories. I haven’t had one since. Sad story. It will definitely be a special treat, not an every day occurrence. Alabama has been playing like a #1 team, and EK, the encourager, is happy to cheer them along. ”Good job!! Good job!!”JL was the FIRST golden apple in his class. When Caden got upset that he wasn’t the first golden apple, JL told him, “It’s because I listen, obey, and am sweet.” The same day he got the golden apple (which is basically an award for being polite, listening, following directions, etc.) he also got the BUG award (“Being Unusually Good”) for finding his sight words in a book. He told me the night before he had been trying very hard and had been doing his best to get a BUG award. So thankful he was rewarded for his efforts.
Caden had Grandparent’s Day and my Mom and Dad were able to come. Don’t they look great?!? I love my parents. I am so thankful that they are so close and can be involved with our kids. This cracks me up. ”My mom thinks I AM SMART.” Well, yes I do buddy. Apparently I tell you that a lot. His favorite thing to do is go to Disney. We all miss Disney. It’s been since May. Caden is playing soccer. He had one rough game where he acted a little ugly to other players, but this game (when this picture was taken) I was SO incredibly proud of him. His team was losing, he got a ball kicked in his face so hard it confused him for a few seconds, but HE PLAYED HIS LITTLE HEART OUT AND DID. NOT. QUIT. So thankful and so proud of him. He wasn’t the only one who enjoyed Yogurt Mountain (or Yo Mo as C calls it) that day. The little 2 had a blast too. Unfortunately Jeb was working.
Hey, I’m almost caught up with current life! Only glasses, a concert, and a few details in between. Yay!
