Things Checked Off

I suppose that if I were to blog with any kind of regularity I would have lots to say, but as it is I forget half of what we do. November might be a good month for weekly updates!

It is field trip season here in our neck of the woods. Bailey had his a few weeks ago and Sophie's is coming up this Thursday. Rain or shine they are going to the zoo, just like they do every year. Still, Sophie is super excited and keeps counting down how many sleeps are left until the trip. Thursday just also happens to be the day that the kids are scheduled to get their second flu shot. The first time around, Bailey was stoic. Sophie not so much. Screaming before, during and after the shot, left the doctor proclaiming, "She's a feisty one!"

Bailey passed the test a swimming school last Saturday that enabled him to move up from a pink swimming cap to a read swimming cap. Sophie also did well on her swimming test, but the instructor said she had a little ways more to go before she can move up. In the mean time, she is content to try on Bailey's red swimming cap.

Next month will be Bailey's seventh birthday, so we are trying to decide what to get him for his birthday. He wants a new pair of shoes and a bigger bike, but that is just this week. In week's past he has asked for a basketball, an American flag, and a ton of toys. We will see what the next few weeks bring before we decide.

Hopefully, I will remember the camera next time we do something exciting!
