Anyway, Conner got his report card on Friday. I was a bit apprehensive. New school. New curriculum. But he did great! He had a 3.3 average. That's amazing considering this was a kid that was basically getting c's and d's from school last year. We are so pleased with his progress. I love that he belongs to a school that is a family as well.
Another cool thing this past week was that our family went to Conner's schools Harvest Dance. It's a DJed dance for the whole family. We had a blast! Conner was off playing football with his buddies, but the rest of us were jamming inside. We brought our babysitter, Kynna, with us. She kept the kids around and showed the older girls some fun new dances. They loved it. And I don't think I've ever seen Caile so happy. Really. She was in heaven jumping and dancing all over the place. Even if she was all by herself and we were sitting down at the table, she'd be off by the DJ jamming. Too cute! I'll post some pics as soon as my friend gets them to me.
I also took some super cute video of the kids wrestling with Mike. It's one of their favorite things to do. As soon as Mike walks in the door, they're asking them to wrestle. I had a couple minutes of great stuff. However, I went to download it today and it seems that it's been replaced with Conner taking footage of trying to get our friend Trischelle to look at the camera. I stepped out for a couple hours and she was watching the kids for me. Seems that it turned into a game for Conner. I can only assume that he figured out how to delete what was already on there to get more stuff. Which, in itself, is amazing to me. I still have to go through a bunch of stuff before I can remember how to do that! Oh well. Maybe next time!
Oh, and I'm just about finished with a cool blanket that I'm crocheting for Conner. He picked out the yard on Saturday and I've been working on it ever since. As soon as it's done I'll post a pic. I really like it. It's hard for me to find a pattern that isn't too hard, but isn't so easy that I can only do 2 rows before I'm bored out of my mind!
*update - my sister was getting on my for not having pictures, so I took a couple of the blanket. It's not done but you get the idea of what it looks like.
