1) Derek had a birthday almost a month ago. He turned six. We love him.
2) You see, when I get behind on blogging I start to feel as if I can never catch up. So I just caught up.
3) The Flodge.
The other day we went to a water park, and it reminded Derek of when we went to the Great Wolf Lodge, an indoor water-park hotel chain that needs to consider raising the temperature of their water, at least in the Williamsburg, Virgina location.
Derek saw the wave pool, and commented-- "It's just like the Great Woo Flodge!"
The what, Derek?
"The Flodge! You know."
Kids are funny.
4) Today was the first day of school.
How did it go, you ask?
Well, the best part was the quiet.
The worst part was the waking up.
Oh, you meant for the children?
It went great! At least, it did for Alex. She likes her teachers and they did her favorite subject-- not math.
That's right, the absence of doing math is her favorite subject.
Her father is extremely disappointed, as his mathlete status is something he treasures.
We don't know how things went for Derek because he can never remember. He's pretty sure his teacher told him her name, but he just can't remember what it was.
He's pretty sure some of the kids from last year are in his class again, but he can't be certain.
He definitely went to the bathroom today, but doesn't recall if he pooped.
Sorry, it's true. And yes, we ask. Because if he said "yes, I pooped" then he would need a bath to decontaminate. I just don't trust him.
Or the boys bathroom.
Day 1: Success. (Unless Derek suddenly remembers something to deem it a failure, but I wouldn't hold my breath.)
5) I have a dentist appointment tomorrow.
6) Josh bought some NFL program that lets him watch every football game of the season on the iPad.
Now I don't have a husband, or an iPad.
I'm choosing to allow this, because my he missed the last two football seasons in Afghanistan and California, where we decided the cost-benefit ratio wasn't justified for the amount of time we were staying there.
Also because I love him.
7) Life in Madrid is good. Thanks for checking in.
