Yesterday was a pretty fun day. My DH didn't have to work so we got up late and lounged around for awhile. We watched a movie our oldest son recommended...Never Back Down. Pretty good movie but alot of violence. All in all pretty good story line though. Then we did the last of our youngest son's school shopping. That was fun. It's amazing how much these kids know these days. We did a little bit of clothes shopping too and he kept saying, "mom that's too expensive. I don't need that". What a sweetheart. We bought it anyway. Our youngest son is going into 5th grade this year, so we had his open house last night too. We got to meet his teacher, and visit the library and his classroom. It's a very small school compared to what he is used to. He will also, for the first time ever, ride the bus to school. He was always getting rides to and from school from his older siblings or mom and dad. This year will be totally different. Plus the bus comes at 6:49 a.m. and doesn't return him home until 3:38 p.m. Something he is totally not used to. I will be picking him up Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays though, since those are the days I have off. (Ssshhh, he doesn't know that yet, it's a surprise.) Anyway, his teacher seems very nice. It's only his second year teaching, so we shall see. I had made a teacher's clipboard for him and we gave it to him last night. Click here if you missed the post on how I made it. He seemed to like it. His room is definately not set up yet, so I have no idea what it will look like, but I am sure it'll have all the standard classroom decorations.
After the openhouse, we went to the fair to walk around for a little bit. We did not do any rides last night. We will be doing an all day fair on Thursday. Last night we went to the exhibits, saw all the animals and ate fair food. LOVE fair food. Grease and all. We each played 3 games of bingo but neither one of us won. Austyn came pretty close a bunch of times. We walked around the middway just to see what kind of rides there were and which ones I might even go on. Austyn is pretty excited to go on Thursday.
