Sprinkler fun!

 photo IMG_3308copy.jpg
These pictures were taken a couple weeks ago during labor day weekend.  Maddy was all for trying out the sprinkler, we hadn’t done it all summer.

Hayden opted out, he isn’t a big fan of sprinklers.

I thought looking at these pictures would make me wistful for summer, but I guess I have transitioned to school and cooler temps.  I love fall, I love jeans.

This week I have been impressed with Hayden.  He unfortunately had to miss school on Tuesday.  He had an ear infection, make that two. He was up till 1:30am on Monday night in pain, so Tuesday he stayed home.  This meant last night he came home with make up homework and his nightly homework.

I have noticed that he isn’t complaining about his homework, he just does it.  Last night he did his homework before and after dinner and till it was time for bed. And then finished the rest this AM and didn’t whine.   I am proud of him, darn proud.  And I have been trying to make a point to share this with him, because really this school is a big change from last year.  Last year he didn’t have much of anything for homework all year.  So I am glad he’s doing ok with the homework.

While Hayden does his homework I have said the TV can’t be on in the family room for Maddy.  She can go upstairs and watch it but she prefers to just hang out by us.  She has been good about being quieter and playing or drawing.

And I am still making dinner each night while helping with homework and talking with Maddy.  Yes I am kinda proud of that fact, because it seems like a small feat each night.  The routine isn’t perfect but we are working on it.

That picture above reminds me of a look I would have given as a child.  Oh Maddy, you are my daughter, there is no questions about it.

Today, we are hanging out at home, Maddy has a doozy of a cold, so I want her to rest.  Laundry is happening and maybe some organizing will be conquered.

What will you conquer today?
