Just life

Life is still going steady over our way.

Like usual, we've attented a soccer game or two...

and a soccer practice or two...

 Practice is obviously exhausting!

Steven had his first theatrical debut this week.  He did an awesome job!
Don't worry, he killed the crazy psychopath! (:

Ahem...Moving on...

We've had a few bumps in the road this week.

Little d has been constipated basically since she was born.  A couple of weeks ago she developed a nasty ole hemmorriod to go along with the constipation so her doctor decided it was time to see a specialist.  I am anxious to see what they have to say about her and her issue.  She drinks plenty of water, has basically no dairy, and eats lots of fiber filled foods.  She really has no reason at all to be like this.  The problem is continually getting worse.  So I'm excited about the appointment.  And that, my dear, is something I didn't think I'd ever get excited over!

I had to have a grown up ish talk with Big D earlier in the week.  It sucked.  We both hated it.  It took forever and she had a lot of questions.  {Why aren't they learning this junk from their peers?!}  I asked her what she knew about a period and she was all like "You mean like, punctuation?"  Yeah, so that sucked.

Parent teacher conferences were this week.  We were all nervous/cautious/optimistic about what Middle d's teacher would have to say about him.  Last year sucked, he hated his teacher, were pretty sure his teacher hated him...he fell way behind in class, and on and on and on...

We were relieved when Mrs. M told us told us that he was "very well behaved" and "always used his manners" and that "he was such a smart boy"...We knew he was all along, our confidence was just a little shaken from last year.  It feels good to be academically proud of our boy, again.  By the way, he has 50 AR points and all A's on his report card {even his behavior grade}!  Go Middle D!!!

Big D's doing pretty spiffy herself.  But that was to be expected.  She made all A's, too!

O.K. well, I've got some last minute Halloween related stuff to finish up [cuz It's 11:47 p.m. and that just so happens to be how I roll}, so I'm signing out!

Happy Mon...Er...Halloween, Everyone!!!
