Well we are supposed to go to the pumpkin patch with Eli's Pre-K class today. But, it's pouring. Yesterday when I asked if we would go if it was raining, I was told "Yes!" Oh dear! Eli won't like that at all! So my pictures today will be with him in cheap yellow rainboots and a fireman raincoat. At the pumpkin patch?? He won't match the pumpkins! My pictures are going to be a mess! I'm either praying for sunny skies or a monsoon. Hopefully if it's a monsoon they won't go!
Last Sunday Kyndal wanted to invite Alex over to "hang out". Two of our neighbor girls had "acquired" boyfriends, as well, so we decided to do a group thing after church with pizza. On Monday Kyndal broke up with Alex. She said, again, that he was too clingy. I have learned something about today's teenagers: The fun in having a boyfriend is really just in "getting" a boyfriend. By Monday afternoon she "had" another one. I said, "Good grief, Kyndal." She laughed and said, "Oh, it won't last!" I don't even know his name. On the one hand I should be mortified that she is so flippant with the hearts of these boys. But, on the other hand, I am THRILLED that having a "boyfriend" really just freaks her out! I was 14 once, and to us "keeping" a boyfriend was the thing. And the lengths we went to, to keep a boyfriend, spelled disaster. I am thankful that she still has such an innocent heart. God bless the Owasso school system for keeping 6th graders in one school, 7th graders in one school and 8th graders in one school. The only boys these girls have to "get" are the nerds in their own class. And we all know that the really cool guys are the ones who are older. But if you never see them, you don't "get" them. Thank goodness! However, there is next year ... WHEN SHE'S IN HIGH SCHOOL!!! Eeeeekkkkkk!!!!!!
After school today we are heading to Missouri to mom and dad's for fall break. I am really looking forward to it! We haven't been "back home" since 4th of July. I have plans to do NOTHING!! I'll get to read and SIT!! We are going to some kid fun place on Saturday to celebrate Dawson's 12th birthday and a family reunion (gads) on Sunday. I might try to squeeze in taking the older kids to the movie to see "City of Ember." Anybody seen it?
Anyway, I may not get to post until we return. Last time I took my computer to Missouri it crashed. I don't know if I want to risk that again. I guess I could post on mom and dad's computer. There just won't be photos. We'll see.
