The first fall feeling morning (where you can actually breathe outside because it doesn't smell like there's a forest fire in your face) called for breaking out the long sleeve shirts and eating donuts on the trunk of the van. It's fun spending one-on-one time with Logers while Boston is at preschool.
Boston had the worst drop off yet of the year. He has been getting more and more nervous as each school day passes and it gets harder and harder to leave as he grabs onto my legs and hides behind me. No amount of distraction or comforting words helped today. I knew bribery would work but I also knew it would become a thing if I did it once so I refrained from bribing him. Eventually I pulled him off of me, put him on the bleachers and walked away quickly. It was so hard to do but necessary. When I picked him up from school he was all smiles and showed me the hat he made for the letter H. He said, "Mom, I actually do love school now." Woohoo! Let's hope he remembers this next week!
The boys and I went on a walk after naps, Boston chased us with a fake sword (that was my workout for the day) and then he played in the cooler (fully supervised with instruction not to do this without me) until it was time to get the girls from school.
I got a call from Jane's school saying, "While Jane was in class she got stabbed in the eye with a pencil."..... uhhhh.... "Well it's not IN her eye, it's between her eye and her eyebrow."..... phew!.... "It's swollen and the injury isn't huge but you may want to take her to the doctor because it looks like there is some pencil lead in there."..... sigh....
I didn't go get her because they said she would be ok but when I saw it after school I decided to take her in because I didn't want her having a lead mark on her face the rest of her life like I do in my hand from when I was opening a microwave holding a sharp pencil and the jolt of the door forced the pencil into my hand. First I called and sent the doctor pictures and he said to bring her in so I got all the kids in the car, rearranged our plan for the afternoon and headed to the doctor. He looked at it for a while and determined most of the lead mark was on the outside of the wound and it should clear up after a couple weeks. He also said he wouldn't charge me for the visit since he wasn't doing anything and I was able to get a refund on the co-pay! Good thing because I was kind of upset at Evan in her class for costing me some big bucks... j/k not j/k.
Since we had 15 or so minutes to kill until Wendy's dance class, we went to the park by her class and played. Right before I took this video, Logan flew straight off this merry-go-round when I started spinning it. We got the wood chips out of his mouth and he was just fine (eek!). Then the kids spun me and I started to fly off which showed me how easy it was for Logan to do the same. A little while later Boston flew off! Yikes! So dangerous but so fun!
