Wow. So very much has happened since I last blogged. It's a little bit hard to remember life before the past 2 weeks. But I think I will want a record of Luke's first days of second grade so here we go.
The day before school started we went to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Two thumbs up from Luke. In case you haven't noticed, he pretty much gives every single movie we see a two thumbs up, except the 3D documentary on the school of sardines we saw at the aquarium.
So, August 10 was the first day of school. He was nervous but ready.
On a scale of 1-10, he gave the first day a 25.
That weekend we celebrated the beginning of a great new year by going to the county fair.
We rode the ferris wheel twice. A big hit with the whole family.
Lamar and Luke rode the teacups. I don't do spinning rides.
Since school's started, Luke's also graduated from private OT. We really miss our OT of 4 years, Danielle, but we're so proud of Luke for being ready to "graduate."
My thoughts are jumbled but Luke is doing great. The past few weeks as we dealt with the loss of our dear friend Sara and learned of my mom's illness, Luke and I had this conversation:
Luke: I hope Mimi doesn't have what Mrs. Sara had.
Me: I thinks she might.
L: I know what that means.
M: You do?
L: Yes, she might die.
M: Yes, that could happen.
L: That is two of my favorite people, Mrs. Sara and Mimi.
M: I know. I'm sorry.
L: But Mom, you know dying is a good thing. You know, God, Jesus, heaven!
Love that boy.
