It's Been Busy Around Here!

Wow, a week goes by before you can blink! I wanted to say it's getting to be "that busy time of year", but I realized that we are always busy! Here's what we've been up to this past week.
Friday night was a holiday open house at our local Kroger store. I thought it was a little early in the season, but we went anyway. Santa and Mrs. Claus were there, the store has been decorated, and there were yummy foods to sample all through the store.

On Saturday, we attended a wedding, Jonathan's first. He had such a good time! He loved the band and he danced the night away!

Monday night was his first basketball practice. Practice is later than I like for a kid his age, from 7-8 each Monday evening. His usual bedtime is between 8-8:30, so we'll see how this goes. At least it is only one night!

Karate classes are continuing, he loves it and we have been going about three times a week. Those kicks are getting higher!

This has been "Theme Week" at school. Monday was "Wear Red" day, Tuesday was "Crazy Hair" day.
Jonathan's hair is so thick, it wouldn't stay spiked no matter how much gel I used! Wednesday was "Favorite Team Shirt" day (Go Bengals!), today is "Crazy Socks" day, and tomorrow is "Camouflage" day.
In addition to Jonathan's activities, homework and reading each night, regular housework, cooking and laundry, I have also deep cleaned my bedroom and bathroom this week, taken the car in for an oil change and tire rotation, had lunch with a friend, worked on eBay and have my Christmas shopping 90% complete. This evening is my first parent-teacher conference.
No wonder this 50-something body is so tired every night!

God certainly knew what he was doing when he gave that beautiful little boy to you!
You have a wonderful life.
