This is some of us walking to the truck on Monday morning after being smoked out of our home the night before. We stayed at hubby's mom's house.
Hubby's mom needed a ride so I sat in the back seat between Sid and Shelb. This is the view of Sid from my seat next to him.

Yesterday at the airport

Yesterday Shelb and Sid and me and hubby took grandma (my mother) to the airport. She left for Jamaica. She was nervous about the turbulence and esp the air pockets but she made it with little of the first and none of the second. Anywho, here are pix of them kids seeing her off!

Focus, Focus

Sid's teacher says that he's going to be a genius who doesn't write. lol. She's trying to get him to focus and finish what he starts (uh oh). Last week she had to "drape him up" by telling him that he couldn't go outside to play until he wrote the date in his writing book. Of course, she said, when he did write it it was his best work so far! A friend of mine who is also a teacher gave me some worksheets for Sid to practice writing(? - I haven't even looked at them yet). What I need for Sid is an area that he can sit and work without distractions. Right now he works at the dinner table and his seat faces the television. Granted, we rarely watch anything in the evenings besides the news (and we used to watch A.N.T.M.) but surprisingly he gets distracted by that.

First of Many

Sid had a little accident with a shopping cart yesterday. He was laughing and playing around with his father when he did a quick spin and run and ran right into the cart shin first. Last night when I bathed him him is when I noticed the nice bruise. This morning though I was hard pressed to figure out which leg was the hurt one cause they both looked the same. It's amazing how quickly kids heal.
