Today, Sam had to come into town for work to pick up turkeys (the Nut Co. gives all the employee’s turkeys as a gift every year). We happen to be out and about, so Audrey and I met him at the store to say hi. Audrey was so excited to see him, and a bit surprised to see him at the grocery store instead of home or work like normal. She was giving him hugs and loving on him so I got a quick picture with my phone, she gives the best hugs around the neck, it’s cute!

I got to work in Preston’s classroom for the first time this year today, I loved it! I’m unable to work in my kids classes this year so I volunteered to be Preston’s room mom and Carlee’s teacher asks me for help when there are things that I can do at home. So, as room mom I put together the parties, for their Thanksgiving activity I got the turkey headband kits for all the kids to put together and then asked a few other mom’s for help with treats and drinks. Preston was so excited for me to be in the classroom and was so awesome while I was there. He showered me with hugs but stayed in his seat when he was suppose to, which is a weakness of his at church, so I was proud of him. I loved being in there, it was really great!

I saw a friend do this with her children and thought it was a great idea. Carlee and Preston were fighting, sigh a fairly common occurrence around here, so they had to hold hands and sing a song. I had them sing, I Am A Child of God! Turns out it was a nice thing to do, they calmed down and stopped fighting, for a while!

Happy Birthday Daddy!
Preston said to me today, “I’m going to be sad tomorrow to go to school because we’re learning our numbers to count to 100, and I don’t like to because I can’t count to 100”. So, I said let’s practice! He can count by 10’s to 100 so I thought this shouldn’t be bad. But he was skipping all over the place. He thinks logically so I thought I might as well show him that it’s in a pattern and not as hard as he thinks. He wrote the 10, 20, 30…100. And I told him to start counting & I would write in all the numbers. When we got to 30 I drew the lines to show him the pattern & at about 50 it clicked and he was getting it. For some reason he mixes up 7, 8, & 9 (we’ve been working on that), so he does have to learn a little more but by the fact that he stood there for this photo and is smiling, that shows that he’s getting it and is proud of himself. I LOVE how happy he gets when he understands a new skill.
