Rockin' Out, One Colorful Brick at a Time

I stood in line at Old Navy at 2:40am on Black Friday. I had just finished work and they were giving out Lego Rock Band so I figured why not? Ended up with two free games and a newly honed hand/eye coordination that can not be beat. Lucas is spectacularly good at it, despite looking half asleep in his (dirty) recliner. Trust me...he's totally killin' that beat.

Weekend Update

So, Lucas and I are finally done being sick. Like completely done. And that's good. But we made my poor mother sick, so that's miserable.
I've been volunteering in Luke's classroom two days a week. Partly because I really want to be involved in his education, and partly because I'm nosey and I want to keep an eye on what's happening in the classroom. Like is he behaving for his teacher? Does he have good buddies? Are his social skills evolving as they should be? All of that is good, I've found, though he does climb off the bus every afternoon with a list of indiscretions from his classmates. This one kid looked at him funny! And this other kid ran away when he asked him to play! Oh the horror!! Kindergarten hasn't toughened him up at all, he's still a pretty sensitive soul.
My home smells like homemade banana pecan bread, cinnamon rolls and bacon right now, and yet all he wants to eat for breakfast is yogurt. I don't get it.
