Homecoming week, and a holiday coming

Homecoming week is here! We have so much fun at school with all the dress up days- it is always fun to see how excited the students get about it. I will have to share some of the photos later this week. I am really proud of our senior class this year- they nominated a student for the Homecoming Court who has Down's Syndrome. This means the world to her, and she will treasure these memories for a long time.
Ladybug and Monkey just came in from having dinner with Pop and Gigi - it is time for bed, and they are stalling. I don't guess I blame them one bit- Sunday nights are always a little bit of a let-down.
In three weeks, we have a long weekend- we are counting down, and looking forward to it. Monkey and Ladybug will go to visit their Mimi, and that always means playing with cousin Meg. Good times!
I think they have finally decided on Halloween costumes- Ladybug wants to be Tinkerbell, and Monkey wants to be a mummy . Well, he wants to be Freddy , the guy from Scream, or Jason, and I said no to all of those. I am not ready for that just yet.
Hope this week is great for everyone-

time flies

So, we have already had six weeks of school. SIX. Why is that so amazing to me? Ladybug and Monkey are both having a great year- church basketball should be starting pretty soon. Ladybug has started going to a Sunday School class- today was her second day in there. She was finger painting when we walked in . Well, she was sitting and looking at the glob of paint on her paper, and not really sure that she wanted to put her hand in it. After I walked in and talked to her, she put her hand in, and had a blast.
Monkey is busy, busy, busy- playing with the neighbors, doing tons of homework, and adding apps to his ipod.
Now our biggest worry is what to be for Halloween - I asked the monkey to be the Man in the Yellow Hat, and let his sister be Curious George, but he was not keen on that idea. Any suggestions?
