October has passed, and it is November already. Our Nevin turned 8 last Thursday. It is sort of sad that we can no longer say, “Nevin is seven.” So along with the typical end of October children’s activities that most families have, we also had some birthday celebrating to do at the place “where a kid can be a kid.”
Tomorrow brings parent-teacher conferences. The children brought home report cards last week, and overall, we were pleased. While we have had some struggles with the kids being back in school, they all ended up with better than acceptable grades. Tomorrow we’ll get more of the commentary behind the grades.
Yesterday 2-year-old Charis started carrying around a back-pack on her back so she can be like her older siblings. She insisted on taking it along in the van no matter where we were heading. She seemed so serious about it. It was really cute.
Not much more to say about life here. We’re trudging along. Happy November everyone!
