A few updates

*Monday- Can someone please tell how a baby knows when you want to take quick break and put your feet up? Now I am not talking about sitting on my rear for 2 hours and eating bon bons. Here's my story....I worked hard all monday morning to get a few things done. Owen really was pretty good in allowing me to get things done. I put him down for a nap, cleaned all the bathrooms. Not just a quick wipe down but the whole 9 yards. Floors, mirrors, tub, toilet, sinks. And with 2 1/2 baths this takes a bit. I finished folding the laundry and put another in and even did a quick work out on dvd. Ok so I am tired (hate to admit, but that wore me out). I wanted to take a quick break. So I got myself I bowl of homeade chex mix and some lemonade and went to plop on the couch for 10 minutes and BAM...Owen is awake. Could he smell the chex mix, hear my ice clinking in the glass or what? I have never figured that one out...
*Tuesday- We are trying to limit Owen's pacifier now to just nap time and bedtime, By about 12:45 he is tired and ready for a nap. As I was giving him his pacifier for nap, Brent called. By the time I got done talking to him which was about 5 minutes I found Owen asleep on his bedroom floor. He was out because he never even stirred when I put him in his crib.

Tuesday night was also maddison's last soccer game. Sorry no pics. They did end the season on winning note.

Wed. Owen to 2 immunization shots in the morning and then we went to playgroup for 30 minutes or so. He still likes that car...won't really do much else. RIght after lunch we went to G&M's school. Every year they do a Thanksgving Feast at school. With them having such a small school (35 students in combined classrooms) a lot of parent help is needed. So I went to start making dinner rolls. I know that Thanksgiving is still a ways out, but we need about 250-300 rolls. And with kids helping that takes time. For some that don't know about Longford School, the school is small like I said. K-5 has 35 students in 2 classrooms. K-2 and 3-5. They have art and pe as well as Title 1 services. The principal comes out 1 1/2 days a week, plus we have a secretary and custodian and part time teachers aide. Anyay...the school puts on this Thanksgiving Feast for friends and familes of the students along w/the community of Longford. We feed over 100 people w/ stew, rolls and dessert. The kids make all the food, from homeade butter to the apple dessert. Its a lot of work, but the kids learn SO much. All the food is donated by students and the community club. After we eat the kids put on a program. It really is cool, hope to have pics in November.
