summer 2012

this has pretty much been it...Scout got his hair cut, we had VBS and he loved it, we go to church every Sunday, swim in his little pool at G and P's, and hang out in our pj's a lot!  lots of Super Why, Sesame Street, music at lunch, cheese, ball, bean box, and learning the alphabet.  i'm in the middle of a massive purge and cleaning my closet and bedroom, k-dogg works in the yard when it isn't scorching, we saw the amazing spiderman this week.  our little town and group of friends has been hit hard with tragedy this summer.  other than that, life is good!

happy birthday!

yippee-yi-yo, it's my birthday!  some little character on one of Scout's apps says that and Scout hits it over and over every time he plays it.  haven't done much today, i'm actually still in my pajamas and Scout's taking a nap.  yesterday was a bad weather day.  Scout went to G and P's while k-dogg and i went to the eye doctor, lunch, and the movies.  k-dogg wears contacts, so they make him come in for a check up once a year before they'll refill his prescription.  i just needed my glasses adjusted because some little boy likes to grab them and throw them as fas as he can when he's tired or mad at me.  our favorite vietnamese food place is only two blocks from the eye doctor and we aren't in that part of town very often, so we went there for lunch!  yum!  then we finally got to see the avengers!  we missed captain america and thor in the theater and caught up on dvd in the past month.  the avengers was awesome!  never have been a big fan of iron man, but i've liked the hulk since i was a little kid and captain america may be my new favorite.  didn't know anything about him when i dressed Scout for halloween, but he's cool.  now i'm ready for the amazing spiderman and the dark knight rises.  my guys got me a HUGE harry potter book for my birthday...if Scout doesn't end up being a geek...i'll be very surprised!

not really, we're not celebrating cinco de mayo too much.  well, scout and i aren't.  k-dogg is going out with friends to watch the mayweather fight, but i don't think he really cares what they're doing, he's just excited to get out.  scout started running a fever wednesday afternoon.  we weren't sure what was wrong, since he always holds his ear when he's tired and he seemed to be getting a new tooth.  thursday morning, gram texted me at work and told me to call his doctor.  so, i worked two hours thursday morning and then left to take scout to the doctor.  they tested him for flu, it was negative.  the doctor said his ears were clear and that he probably had an upper respiratory infection.  scout looked miserable all day thursday.  we went back to gram's and he wanted to do nothing but be held.  i stayed home with him yesterday so he could sleep in.  he looked much better, but still pretty puny and pale.  and, ohmygoodness, he has been a momma's boy the past few days!  poor k-dogg got up with him this morning, but as soon as he saw me, he actually jumped off the couch and ran to me!  he's taking his amoxicillin like a big boy, and he's not running fever anymore, but he gets run down and grumpy pretty easily and he's not eating much.  he also cut a new tooth today.  i got a swing for him this afternoon.  we set it up at my mom and dad's and let him try it out.  he loves swinging, normally, but he wasn't too thrilled and wanted out.  i got him out, and blood just poured out of his mouth...new tooth!  that would explain some of the grumpiness and not eating!  he's been asleep for the past 2 hours, so i'm hoping he'll be able to sleep tonight!  if not...it may be a long night.  outside of scout news, nothing much is happening.  i got a haircut and changed my hair color.  we now have less than a month of school!  not much is happening this coming week, then everything goes bonkers!  can't wait!

this is the time of year school starts getting crazy.  we found out our room assignments, team assignments, and what we'll be teaching next year on monday.  i have to move rooms again, i have a new team again, and i'm teaching only writing next year.  so, it will be my 4th year there, my 3rd classroom, my 5th different team, and for the second time i will get to pack up all my reading and history materials.  whatever, at least i'm not pregnant this time while i have to move all my stuff!  i'm actually excited about only teaching writing.  this year has been really hard trying to fit everything in.  we have more staar tests this week...reading and math.  relay for life was last night.  i'm glad i went, even though it was pretty cold, because a lot of people didn't show up!  i stopped by ghs cheer tryouts last night before relay...so glad Scout is a boy!!!!  my mom's birthday was this week.  she kept Scout home from mdo and took him on a picnic at the park.  thursday, they went to the zoo.  i think my kid loves to zoo!  he's really into birds right now.  when they were at the park this week, he saw a goose and started honking at it!  we're not sure who we can give credit to for that, but i'm betting on curious george or my mom...she may not remember teaching him that!  Scout cut ANOTHER tooth this week, so his sleeping has been a little off and he can be a little grumpy at times.  he also hates being interrupted for a diaper change and tries to kick k-dogg and i while we are changing him...fun times!  we're about to go wrap up my mom's birthday week this afternoon with a late lunch at tgifridays and a trip to fresh!  yeah, our family celebrates birthdays all week!  my birthday this year is on a saturday, we're out of school the day before it, and it's the saturday after mother's day!  plus, we have field day that week.  should be a pretty good week!  in case you missed 'em on fb, here's some Scout pictures to catch you up...
