Check In

This is turning out to be a very busy week around here.

The kids start school on Monday the 20th so last week we began bedtime routines again for school. This week is bedtime and morning routines so they are ready for next week. Also there is lots of running around making sure everything from the supply lists are complete, all uniforms, paperwork, etc is ready to go. Alex starts PreK the same day so he only adds to my list of stuff to make sure is done and ready to go. He is so very excited to go to his school.

I do have a dilemma - I found out on Friday that Nick and Jake and Alex all have to be at two different schools at the same time! So Friday I called the transportation department to get Nick and Jake added to the bus route, which will probably not be done by the first day but will happen soon enough. It will take longer to get them situated on the route because Jake needs special needs transport and Nick needs clearance to ride with his brother. I am hoping Nick does not get any crap from the evil kids about riding the "special" bus with his brother, but I know Nick will be good to his brother as always. Last year at a ballgame at school, he took Jake to sit with him and his friends and explained to a few of them a little bit about Autism which his teacher happily passed on to me. I just hope he stays in that mindset to give his brother that little cushion of protection and inclusion.

Anyway, Alex turns 4 years old this Friday and Saturday is his birthday party BBQ at our house. So besides getting ready for school this week I have to get my house ready for a party which means deep cleaning all week. I am off to clean the vertical blinds on the sliders and try to fix the stain on the pergola outside today.

My uncle is performing about 45 minutes from here Saturday night so we are hoping to go see his show - Magic of the Mind: The Sandman ! He performs all over the US so you should definitely check him out when he is near you. He is a riot!

Going to go visit my daily reads and then get to cleaning while the boys are being civil still this morning! :) Have a great day!

It sounds like you have a very busy week ahead of you!

I hope you get the transportation figured out- what a pain!!
