I've gotten so behind on this blog and it's been stessing me out! I can truly say this has been a month like none other.
Let's jump back to several weeks ago. Curtis woke up with red, goopy eyes. We knew it was pink eye right away. Off to the doctor.
Being silly while waiting for the doctor.
It took a while. Somebody got a little bored.
I found this taped to the copier at work. I literally laughed out loud. It is so true.
Curtis was chosen as a Jet Pilot! Every 9 weeks, each teacher chooses one student who represents the Hope JETS pledge: (Just be respectful. Encourage everybody. True to yourself and others. Stay safe and focused.) Bella and Graydon have both received this award in the past. Curtis was so excited when his name was called!
It has barely felt like winter this year. We have had so many warm days. This was a January day at the park.
Bella and I decided to take a walk around the pond. As we got closer, we realized that it was flooded. Those trees out there are usually not under water. And if you look closely, you can see that there are lamp posts in the water.
The boys finished up their basketball season.
We watched a lot of football games.
Even after the Packers lost that final game, we weren't quite ready to pack up the cheesehead.
'Super Curtis' has made some appearances.
Whenever he played 'Super Curtis', he didn't just put on the cape, but his orange shirt and yellow pants. Each and every time.
And he started writing 'Good Curtis' on all of his school papers because, as he said, "I didn't know how to spell 'super.'"
Mabel loves getting her belly rubbed.
The boys played ball during half time of the high school game.
Graydon made a basket!
I let Curtis go to our evening church service in his pajamas. (And he found a hat in the nursery).
Up-close art project: a waffle.
Pinewood Derby time. The boys worked hard on their cars. (I'll have more pics from the actual Derby on the next blog).
I had to get over my clutter-phobia for a few days while the kitchen table looked like this.
Elementary Night at the high school basketball game. All of the kids who played basketball for the school were recognized during half time.
The boys got orange bandanas from a fundraiser we attended earlier that day.
Salty cat likes to sneak in sometimes.
"Come, Mom! Take our picture!"
We went to an away high school basketball game. This was the school that the movie, "Hoosiers" was based on.
The trophy that the team won all those decades ago.
The Cub Scouts had a police officer guest speaker.
Bella likes to snuggle with Salty when he sneaks in the house.
'Super Curtis' has left the building and he has been replaced with 'Leonardo' (from Ninja Turtles). *Even though Leonardo is supposed to have the blue mask.
I'll try to update with pictures from the Pinewood Derby soon!
