Both classes had book exchanges and Holden was thrilled with his book. Plus, his teacher gave him a joke book. I'm thrilled because now he'll have new material. I really can't hear about the snail on a ship one more time.
Hope was a little stressed (as you can see) by the Cars book she got. She was concerned it was a boy book. We've moved on since then. In fact this week she's taken to renaming all of us. I'm not sure what that's about, but Tom's new name is Susan, I'm Faith and Holden was Parlene. I was tickled to hear her call Tom Susan and to have him answer. Love this age.
My Secret Santa got me a gingerbread house kit to do with the kids and I thought it was a perfect gift! Hope and I worked on it the other night and we were able to use up Halloween candy. Holden was not so interested as Ben 10 was on and Tom kept wanting to put the eyeball candy on so he wasn't allowed to help as much. It's not exactly symmetrical, but it will do. Hope was highly agitated that it didn't have more windows on the side, but icing in my hands is only able to do so much.FrontBack
