Family. That’s what seems to be happening here. Lots of family “stuff.”
Of course, I have the two boys just down the street, that I seem to be spending about 99% of my time with. Now that school has begun, I am homeschooling Anderson again. He’s starting first grade but we’re starting him with second grade math because the first grade curriculum was all repeat of what he did in kindergarten math. So far, after just one week, it’s the right choice.
Then there is little Mati, who lives up in Seattle. I haven’t seen him since June, just before he turned one month. I will be driving up to Seattle on Friday and I’m looking forward to it. I’ll only get to spend a couple of days before driving back home on Sunday but at least I’ll get to see him for a bit. The pictures I’ve seen of him show that he’s getting so big! He’s alert. He has his own little personality, smiling in all the pictures. I am really looking forward to seeing him. I probably won’t see him again until Thanksgiving or Christmas so I’m glad I can squeeze in this visit.
And coming back home, there is also New Baby, or Tres (as in number three) as my daughter has begun to refer to New Baby. New Baby won’t arrive until late February or early March so we have a bit of a wait but I know it will fly by. My daughter goes for her ultra sound in less than a month…the one where they can tell the gender of the baby. She is going to have them write the gender on a paper and seal it in an envelope, take it to the bakery, and have them make a cake with either blue or pink filling in it. She has set the date for the reveal for October 15th. It will be a very small group. She has only invited her sister, a couple of friends, the other grandparents, and me.
With all of my grandchildren being boys, there’s a lot of joking going around. I would like a grand daughter. But then again, I would have liked the others to be a grand daughter but they weren’t and I still love them so much so I guess I will be happy with either one. I did have a dream the other night…two nights in a row, in fact…where I could see a little dark haired girl running around with the boys. I’m big on dreams and what they have told me n the past but I don’t have a strong feeling about the dreams this past week. Time will tell.
On Tuesday I will lead the first class session of a writing class (writing enrichment) for 5th through 7th grade. It’s only an hour a week so not too bad. It shouldn’t take too much planning time. I’m looking forward to it. We’ll see how it goes and how many of the kids are awake for writing time at 9 am.
I think that’s it for this week. Not much else going on because there’s no time for reading. It seems that once I get home after home school and running errands with or for my daughter, I’m so exhausted that I fall asleep! So no time for anything else.
