The Reader has joined the cross country team and is doing great!
This day I could get a glimpse of him running during practice.
It’s not pictured here, but he eventually caught up the girl in the blue shirt too!
Then there was a scrimmage last Friday.
Hope was there too, of course!
Then the race starts!
Toward the end of the race –
He finished with 13:56:16 for 1.5 mile race! Great job!!!
We participated the city rec center’s flashlight pumpkin hunt again this year.
It was a fun event with pumpkin hunt (of course), craft, and snacks. I tried to take pictures but they seem all blurry ‘0’
Before the hunt – the Negotiator with his flashlight, the Reader with his night vision goggles, and Dad with a flashlight hat!
After the hunt I asked the Negotiator to pose next to this skeleton.
Some craft with snacks.
The Reader sweated a lot after carrying the pumpkin all the way!
The Negotiator started a chess club and since then all the boys have been enjoying playing chess.
Dad and the Negotiator…
The Negotiator and the Reader
Maybe I need to play chess as well…?
You know what they say about carnivals? No? Well, neither do I. But I know that the kids like them. So we stopped by – with masks, of course.
Rides, rides, and more rides. My stomach was queazy. I felt like throwing up. So we took a break to play some games.
It was a good time.
The Reader made a petition, recently. He’s been trying to get signatures.
The basic idea is that, “Electronics are cutting us of(f) from society! Nobody knows how to socialize anymore!”
I have to wonder if he’s trying to indirectly tell me something. Whatever the case, he’s making steady progress – 8 signatures so far.
Last year (or maybe the year before?) we purchased a waterslide. It’s about 20 feet long, and lots of fun. But what’s more fun than a waterslide?
Two times the waterslides, two times the fun!
