School Projects

Tori and her friend Madison are in gifted together and as their yearly service project they have decided to celebrate holidays with the memory care residents at HarborChase Assisted Living. So round 1: witch hat cookies delivered by cute little witches!
Tristan's class skipped the Halloween party this year and did Mad Science Day. They got to make slime, blow bubbles, race balloon ghosts, and lots more! Tristan had crazy hair and his friend Isaac had a crazy mustache!

Hunsader Farms Fall Festival

Long drive, lame festival but now we know. Still a beautiful day to be outside!

Thursday, October 15, 2009


The kids have now officially missed the entire week of school (there is no school tomorrow - pro ed day). The good news is I think they are finally getting better.

Other augh - Todd and I, inspired by Bryan and Laurie, decided to try this p90x thing. So we did the first video last night, we are doing the lean version for the first round since Todd cannot do heavy heavy chest/back because of his shoulder surgery. So the first video was "Synergistics" and I should tell you that I had better see results if I am going to feel like this. I am SO sore, SO sore. Only 89 more days to go...

Bad Mommy Moment - Trying to Fix!

So we are out at the baseball game and FL is experiencing insanely high temps for October. So its sunny and ridiculously hot. And Tristan is being lazy. Not running to his position, asking for a drink when its the middle of warm ups, etc. So I tell him to drink some water and shake it off, its hot for all of us and he needs to play his best. So he goes and does.

Comes home. ASKS to nap. Um what?!? Sleeps for an hour, wakes up with a 101 fever. So we give him Motrin thinking maybe it is heat exhaustion or something, lots of water. By 5 am this morning he is screaming due to nightmares, shaking, sweating and running a 102 temp. The Motrin brought it back down and I have exactly 25 minutes before his drs office starts taking calls on Sundays.

If you are the praying type - please pray its nothing big. Us all staying home for 5 days is a bit detrimental to our saving money thing and just plain miserable in general so we are really hoping that its nothing (aka Influenza A or swine flu). In the meantime this mean mommy is trying to make up for being mean with ice water, washclothes and drs appts! Oops...

In with the new...

We talked about waiting until we found a house to replace any furniture BUT we are so sick of having a dirty looking table. It always has fingerprints and smudges and just that combined with a great deal on the new set spurred us to move early. It also has one of those butterfly leaves that folds right into the table which I love. Hoping to get a pretty runner soon and change the centerpiece based on season but for now I am just glad its out of the gillion boxes it was in and ready for use!
