So September came and went really fast.
School and I are still fighting it out on the best way to schedule my time.
Cole, Emily, and Aiden all go to different schools at different times and all pick ups and drop offs are done my ME. One person. Three children, and 6 times a day I am supposed to be somewhere.
School is KINDA yanking my chain.
Cutting into my bon''bon eating, internet surfing/working time.
Enough ABOUT ME..
NICOLE: HIGH HONORS PRINCIPALS LIST) for first semester of her Freshmen year. YEAH! GO GOOEY! (Aiden still calls her Gooey, although I heard him screech NICOLE, just this morning)
She''s adjusting well to High School and her new schedule (not morning person, must run in the family).
Still working on STUPID back handspring. She had it, broke her hand, lost it, had it again, broke her FINGER, lost it. She is going to tumbling classes and Cheer tryouts are at the end of November, so there is time. Thanks to Granny and Papa (and Casey) she joined the Snowboarding program and will spend her winter on the mountain, hopefully not breaking any bones. * because this is the closest thing I have to a baby book, I wanted to record that Nicole is 5 feet 4 inches tall.
Emily: My little Chicklet.. She makes me laugh so much. She is serious and silly mixed with freckles and ponytails. We just came from a soccer game where she scored a goal. A GOOOOAAALLL! She calls is a GOLD, which I refuse to correct, because it sounds so cute. Emily is not afraid of ANYONE on the field, very aggressive. (years of being AIDEN''s sister are paying off) School is going well, she loves it. 1st graders are like so cool. She has mastered the monkey bars with a few minor injuries. BIG KID. I know. She has maybe 2 episodes a week. We are very lucky that we have not had any hospital visits or extended episodes in almost a year.
Aiden: He is doing well. He runs in phases. He''s a royal twerp and I''m looking to kill him.. Then he''s absolutely adorable and I want to clone him. This week is a GREAT week. He''s got manners, he''s managing his disappointment without tantrums and he''s all about spontaneous displays of affection. I KNOW IT WILL NOT LAST, but as of today: He''s a keeper.
