I’m This Many……

Ethan turned 3 on Saturday. Just a few random pics of the day.

“Oooops I forgot”

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

Well it was bound to happen, and it did. I told Keagan at the beginning of the school year, “You have to remember to get your sister every day.” ‘Well what if I forget?” Oh believe me, you will only forget once. I got a call today from the school at about 2:25. I was thinking it was probably the kids because I told them if it was raining to give me a call and I would come get them. So the phone rings, and no it’s not the kids, it’s the office at school.  It seems Natalia is in the office, pretty distraught, because her brother left her at school. I load up Ethan and Daelin, both screaming mind you, and head over to the school. About half way there, I see Keagan walking down the street. I ask him if he forgot anything, and he says yeah my sister. I told him to finish walking home and I would be back in a few minutes with her. I get to the office; she is looking pretty sad and worried sitting there. I can tell that she has been crying. She was in a pretty grumpy mood, why is she taking it out on me; I wasn’t the one who forgot her. I ask her what happened; she said she couldn’t remember where Keagan’s classroom was. Ummm, it’s in the same hall as you just down at the other end. It sounds like they were both looking for each other and probably crossed paths a few times. So needless to say, Keagan couldn’t play with friends today, drove him nuts, drove me nuts, let’s just hope he has learned and he will not leave school without his sister again.  

Pack Meeting

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

It’s been almost a week since pack meeting; I think I can finally blog about it. It was Keagan’s first pack meeting and he had to be there early for flag ceremony. We get to the stake center pavilion, and it’s just chaos. There are kids running everywhere, including walking on top of the tables and jumping from table to table. Yes I know that they are boys, and boys can be wild at times, but come on parents people are going to be eating there, and I personally don’t want a foot in my potato salad. The leaders are up there trying to talk and get things under control, it’s time for prayer and the kids are still being loud, but they say the prayer anyway. HELLO!!!! How are the kids ever going to learn to be reverent if parents aren’t going to teach them how to be? The parents are off talking amongst themselves, paying no attention to what their kids are doing. Of course the kids are going to run wild if the parents aren’t even going to attempt to corral them.  I know my kids aren’t perfect, but I was so glad that Keagan was sitting there listening while they were attempting to hand out awards. He even went and tried to help with the contest they had. They split up into two teams to see who could put a tent up the fastest. Chaos as well, Keagan’s team, the tent was missing pieces. The kids didn’t do much besides stand there, while the adults attempted to put the tent together. Needless to say, I was glad when it was over and it was time to go home. We had to give the kid a HUGE pat on the back for not walking on the tables, listening, and not running around like wild animals, even though they are most of the time.

Back to school, back to school…..

Ok so it’s been a week since they have gone back, but better late than never I guess. :) Keagan started the 3rd grade, and Tashie is now a big 1st grader. Nothing too eventful has happened. They both enjoy eating school lunch. The first day of school Tashie got left in the lunch room because she was taking her own sweet time, she didn’t even get to go to recess. Today she tells me that she didn’t come in from recess at the right time because she missed the blue flag. Her teacher is going to have her hands full with her this year that’s for sure. Keagan has some friends from his 2nd grade class in his 3rd grade class. He has made a lot of new friends as well. It seems like every day he comes home telling me about a new friend that he has made that day. Hopefully his year will continue to go well; heck anything will be better than his 1st grade year.
