TUESDAY- I went to a "training" just to volunteer with Allison's class. I had no idea, really, what I was getting into. They are participating in "JA Biztown"- the JA stands for Junior Achievement and it looks so fun! The training was on the top floor of the Gateway Discovery Museum. It's set up like a mini-town or community- the students go there on an all-day field trip and work at their jobs, collect paychecks, go to the bank, take out loans, pay for health insurance, etc.- All the fun things we adults get to do! It should be interesting and fun for the kids!
WEDNESDAY- You'll have to check on SATURDAY for the results of this day. Allison's activity day leader called at 12:30 p.m. to "remind" Allison that their Halloween party was today! That was news to me! I frantically got out the pattern and material we had picked out for her witch dress and went to town cutting and sewing. The result? Like I said, check out SATURDAY. I will say that I got finished at 4:00 p.m.-- about 5 minutes before Allison got home from school. (4 p.m. was also the time that the party started... that's cutting it a little too close!)
THURSDAY- Tommy earned all his "stamps" on his chart for being such a good boy and for being a perfect little potty user!! We frequent this dollar store a lot to reward the little guy. His favorite items are: pirate play sets, Spiderman cars, Spiderman flash cards (not to learn numbers, but to look at "the mean guys!"), he also thinks the plastic pirate knives and guns are cool, but they are off limits!
FRIDAY- This is Tommy at his Grandpa's office waiting for his flu shot. You can tell that he doesn't know that! I actually told him beforehand that he was going to get a "little poke" and he started freaking out a little bit. So I had to change the subject and pretend like I didn't know why we were there. Sorry, Tommy! He was brave and only cried for about 1/2 a minute!
We also took the kids to the 'Gale Museum' today and they loved it! I didn't even know it existed until the girls had their Peter Pan auditions there. They have mini rooms to depict life at the time of the settling of South Jordan. Perfect place to take kids- and best of all? FREE! Tommy is pretending to eat a plastic steak in this picture.
