The Great Escape

I just made the children go to bed and was watching TV when I heard giggling in Ethan and Jeffery's room. I decided to go see what was going on and sure enough, Ethan was standing in front of Jeffery's crib playing with him. I made him stand in the corner because he is usually ready to "really" go to bed when he is done. After he had gone to bed for the second time, I heard the door open and thought it was just Ethan going to the bathroom. It wasn't Ethan but Jeffery that walked into the living room smiling and proud of his "Great Escape" from the crib.

Virus Attack

I hate viruses. I don't know where they come from. Katherine was the first when her tummy her yesterday and she stayed home from school. She threw up during the day, but was fine by the late afternoon. Early this morning Jeffery started throwing up. He threw up twice during the night. Yuck! the smell is horrible. I hate cleaning it up, but it has to be done. I had a stomach ache ever since yesterday, too. We'll see what else comes of this.

Today is the first day of school for Wendy. She is taking a probability class and is stressed out even at the thought of the class. She will do well. The course states the need for a laptop, but we will see if that is the case once the course gets into the flow.

Math Teachers

I've had great math teachers through my high school years and college. I only hope that my children have the same or better, but not like this...

New School Year

It is finally the beginning of the new school year. We woke up this morning in a mad rush - cooking breakfast (bacon, eggs and biscuits), making lunches and all the normal routines. This is Ethan's first year of school. No more watching the girls get on the school bus. He used to make sure the girls got ready in the mornings and hurried them out the door saying "Come on, girls!" when the bus was coming. Now they all have to work together to get on the bus in the morning. Here are a few pictures to show of the morning of the first day of school.

Jeffery the Friendly Ghost

We just learned this week that our house is "Haunted". We have taken a few infrared pictures and this is what we have seen.
