Well we are now a month into school and I am just now updating! Oh well....life is busy.
Hudson is in 2nd grade this year and Harrison is in his last year of preschool (cue the tears!!!). The day before school started, we had meet the teacher for both boys. Hudson got Ms. Carr, who we heard is just great. One month in and Hudson is loving 2nd grade, but boy, is she kicking his tail too! I'm convinced 2nd grade must be the year they whip them all into shape!
He loves the Ticket Officer job so much that he established a ticket system for us at home. He is getting our act together at home too! Ha! This is really hard to read, but each rule is color coded and on the left is where the tickets go if you receive one. As you can see on this night, Harrison received a black ticket--do not stick your face in a person's bottom. :) We.were.dying.
Our house rules:
Blue - Make your bed (if you don't you get one more chance and then you don't get your allowance)
Green - Read and do your homework (timeout if you don't)
Black - Do not stick your face in a person's bottom (timeout if you do)
Orange - Do not touch boy parts (can you tell we are a boy family?!!?)
Red - Keep self control (timeout)
Yellow - Do not touch a breakable thing that is not yours (timeout)
Hudson and Harrison came up with these rules all on their own and it has been so funny watching them use it on each other AND on us, and the poor dogs (and you know dogs love to sniff bottoms so there have been lots of black tickets given there!!!).
Anyway, so we've had several play dates after school on Fridays and overall, just getting back into the swing of things. It's nice to be back in our routine, although getting up before 6 is still a struggle for me.
