I am on full time parent duty this week. Brian is in NYC entertaining doctors from Japan. Here he is at Yankee Stadium.
I was shocked to see him wear a Yankee jersey. You do what you have to do when you are getting paid.
“Tough job but somebody has to do it. By the way the Yankee shirt is going into a bomb fire when I get home :)”
It looked like a perfect summer’s night for a baseball game.
He barely made it down there with the weather being all whacked. Two flights were cancelled and then he rented a car from Boston and finally drove it.
2. It’s June 4th and I am not sure it feels like summer- or maybe it is a crazy summer. This weekend it was like 90 degrees and boiling, then it was nasty with thunderstorms left over from tornados and threats of tornados here, now it is cooler.
Bottom line- I just want to head to the beach without any weird weather. We didn’t go much last summer with all of our travel and this summer is wild with kids and parent’s everywhere.
To top it off my air conditioner is out in my car and happened right when the 90 degrees struck. It has been miserable. Need to get that fixed pronto!
3. Hillary is still loving China. You can see her updates over at her blog. It was the best choice we ever made for her.
4. School is winding down for the kids and I am officially the worst end of school year parent. I am not kidding. I have missed filling out more forms and paying for more things than you can imagine.
Does it seem like they just pile it on at the end? Everything is due, everybody has a recital, a seminar, a project due or something. I want to crawl in my little corner and research my ancestors that I blogged about last post.
In fact for ages, we thought this guys were our great- great- great grandparents, but I just learned yesterday that it was documented that they never had any children.
Hmmm…and why did a 25 year old marry a 59 year old in the 1850’s? I don’t understand that.
Family History is so darn addicting. I find if I don’t put a time limit on it, I am researching for hours getting absolutely no where but learning some interesting facts.
5. Finally, Noah watched the National Spelling Bee last week and is determined he is going to compete this year. He is probably my only kid that could take that serious since he has the mind for it and my other two older suffer dyslexic spelling issues.
I love that he wants to make that a goal, because it helps him regardless of winning with his vocabulary and roots of latin etc. It is a perfect homeschooling goal and will give him something to focus on.
He started yesterday and loves studying word roots and spelling words.
We kicked it off by watching Akela and the Bee, which was his favorite movie when he was younger.
