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.

So glad to get the kindergarten update! You have a pretty full schedule; volunteering gets a gold star for this Mom! Soooo glad you and Lucas are feeling better again.

Good to hear you are feeling better! It must have been the weekend to make banana bread and cinnamon rolls ...and all other goods that make one's house smell WONDERFUL!

It makes me crazy when I hear about kids being mean to other kids. There is no reason for it! They have their entire adult life to be mean ... why start so young?

I wish I'd read this post Nov 7. We'd have been over in a flash with bloody mary's or mimosas! Let him eat yogurt and leave the good stuff for grown-ups.
