Wade was feeling better this week and was ready to participate in Story Hour. He still wanted me to stay close, but he sat in the circle and listened.
He sang a song about Valentine's Day and took his purple heart to Mrs. Melissa when it was his turn. Then he decorated his Valentine page with heart stickers. I was thankful for a non-edible craft this week!
Despite this sad looking face, I think he had a good time.
The best part was when we walked over to the office, and Wade's pal, Andrew asked the secretary, Mrs. Leigh, for candy. She gladly shared some "chocit" with the boys. Wade sure perked up then!
Lee was playing on the Wii while I was vacuuming. He goes into the "Wii coma" when he plays, and we joke that the house could burn down around him and he wouldn't notice. I asked him to move so I could vacuum, and he never budged. I had Matt vacuum all around him to see what he would do. He n-e-v-e-r missed a beat or acted like he knew we were there. Matt was leaving to take the garbage off to his shop, and Wade wanted to go with him. Before Matt could get his coat, Wade loaded up his friends to go, too. Matt was a good sport and let Big Bird, Cookie Monster and Mickey Mouse tag along.
Marly Kate gave her research presentation today, and her Mom sent me this picture of Lee's Praise Phrase for her. I love how sweet they still are to each other. They have been together for 3 years, and I don't want to think about Lee being in class without her.
I started to look for a picture of them together, and I didn't have to go far. In fact, I have a folder named "Lee and MK." Her mom and I started getting their picture together at (nearly) every event when they were in preschool.
We have been married for 11 years and are the proud parents of 7 year old Lee, who is a 2nd Grader at Rhea Elementary, and 2 year old Wade. Buzz is our 8 year old Lab/Golden mix, and Sam is our 1 year old mutt. We live in Paris and can't imagine a better place to raise our family!
