Derek still wants us to sing "Zaccheus was a Wee Little Man" to him every time he lays down for a nap or for bedtime.
He's been on this kick ever since we moved here to North Carolina.
We've been here for 7 months.
That means we have sung that song over 400 times.
I am sick of that song.
Also, we've been here for 7 months. And I still don't feel like it's home. It's a slow process for me, and usually involves needing at least one season to repeat itself before a new assignment beings to feel like home.I think it will start to feel that way when we're spending our summer afternoons at the pool.
Wait. We've been here for 7 months? I think I need to make a dentist appointment.
I'm looking forward to planting a garden in the backyard this spring. I've never done that before, and we have a couple of raised garden beds out back.
Also: Does anyone know how to plant a garden?
Maybe a helpful website?
Alex continues to break out into song randomly. Her song of choice is still "It's Raining Men." We've been laughed at by a few store clerks and I'm wondering if I should send a note to school to let her teachers know that it's all the Wii's fault.
Josh has been flying nights this week, so one day he was able to go to school and have lunch with Alex. He's done this probably a dozen times now. The other kids are starting to get to know him, and he always comes home with some interesting stories.
I had asked him to let Alex's teacher know that I wont be picking her up on Thursdays anymore, because hallelujah! Thursdays have been redeemed!
Turns out that Alex had already let her know that she was "going to dance on Saturdays now because the costumes for the Saturday class are much prettier."
Makes me wonder what other kinds of things children report to their kindergarten teachers. They probably know a lot more about my family that I assume.
Cruise 2011 Countdown: 6 days until I fly away, 7 until I set sail.
I took a spin class yesterday evening, and spun extra hard thinking about the bathing suit I must wear.
But then after I got home, I was really hungry and may have eaten for the rest of the night.
I can't rightly say.
