here’s the random, miscellaneous, mundane stuff that’s been going on around here for the last three weeks or so…
we have been letting anna sleep on the bottom of isaac’s bunk bed a little more and a little more as we prepare for her room to be temporarily surrendered to the baby. eventually, she and babythree will share the room, but for quality sleeping purposes, she will hang with ike for a bit. they have done a great job. he loves to read to her. 🙂
on columbus day, isaac’s class had a spaghetti lunch. i’m the room mom. so, i was there. to witness my son not eating any of the lunch. i like to think it’s in protest of celebrating columbus the murderous tyrant. but, i think it’s just general six year old sulking.
we have acquired a new spider friend. last year, we had one in our front window, which was totally awesome to watch. this year, she’s under the deck, and kind of tucked away and hidden. i (very carefully) reached my phone around the web to get this pic.
we went to the birthday party of the girls i used to keep. annie and sadie. annie is four in november. sadie turned two in september. so they share a birthday party in october. anna insisted on wearing a dragon costume. i let her.
one day, while i was resting/napping, thinking my kids were playing quite nicely and quietly, i awakened to find a trail of stickers across the table, down the leg, across the floor, to the game closet. isaac learned a hard lesson about removing stickers, shortly thereafter.
some more camp firing. anna is more of a hot dog roaster and marshmallow toaster. isaac prefers his marshmallows “raw” and won’t eat hot dogs because they are “not healthy”. so, he runs around and plays while we chill fireside. in case you wondered why he’s never in any of the pictures.
