Today was Andrew’s first day of school. He started his year of half day classes all week long. This gives me time to hit the gym all week long. The real test, however will be next Monday when I end up coming home from work and going right to drop Andrew off at school. I’m going to figure out how I’ll get sleep on Mondays. It will be interesting.
Andrew’s first day was a great one. He had a good time and made some new friends, he can’t remember the names of any of the kids except for a couple. That is to be expected from a four-year-old. He’s too busy being a kid to notice exactly who he’s playing with. Soon enough he’ll be asking me to go on playdates with some of the other kids in his class. He does like getting together and having fun with the other kids. Here is our conversation on the way to and from school today.
Today I got super serious about getting the office cleaned out today. I spent a few hours getting everything together. I got a box to give away stuff at work, a box for a giveaway to savers, a bag of odds and ends wires to go to Best Buy and more. I even took everything off the walls. Yes, it is time to get serious about getting this house listed. working on getting it show ready. I’m tired of seeing houses that we might like get snatched up so quickly without us even getting a chance. I want a chance.
Today was another half day of school for Eva. It seems like when Andrew and I get a moment to get things going at home we have to run off to school. Today we also had to run to Target so today was a special little lunch at Dairy Queen with the kids. They loved getting some food and ice cream. While we were there Eva talked about how she hadn’t had the cherry dip in forever. It made me think of the first time I ever took her to Dairy Queen back in 2009. She was about 1 1/2 and I just let her enjoy the heck out of the cone. She made a huge mess. It was great.
At Target we found some items for Andrew’s birthday party. He want’s a Dory themed party. Eva wants a Harry Potter themed one. We’ve got a lot of ideas for the party. Eva even asks for some suggestions in today’s video. That is right before my phone falls off the mount. Whoops. We kept it running.
During my office cleaning I found my last Skylanders SuperChargers figure for my collection. I decided that it was time to unbox it and complete the collection. Just in time to start on skylanders Imaginators. I’m really looking forward to that one to be released.
