Sunday (10/30) started with all of us sleeping in. Daniel & Adrian slept the latest, Daniel until 10 and Adrian until I sent the boys up to wake him up at 11. We had planned to go to another corn maze but there was a good chance of rain in the afternoon so we decided not to make the trip. The boys weren't really interested in any of our other options so we stayed home and watched football, played video games & got caught up on some stuff around the house.
Monday (10/31) Happy Halloween!! We all had our normal stuff during the day, and none of the kids' schools do anything for Halloween, which is fine with me. It made our evening a little more special since they didn't have a party or anything at school. When I picked AJ and Daniel up from school I put them all in their costumes and we headed to Krispy Kreme for our free donuts. We also picked up their free donuts from their great report cards.
After that I headed off to teach a quick but awesome Zumba class. Then I raced home to do trick or treat with the family and Carl, Sarah, Isabelle & Vincent. We again had perfect weather and had a great time. The kids walked for about 90 minutes, which is way longer than any other year we have gone. They got tons of candy, saw lots of neighbors & had fun. We also got to see the fire fighters who were driving around passing out candy, go thru another "haunted" house and then come home and eat Jets pizza. So much fun!!
Wednesday (11/2) was another busy day. I went into Daniel's classroom to volunteer. I'm so happy I can go in every other week to help out. I did sight words with the kids again, which I love. But this may be my last time doing them because the kids are doing so great, about half the class is already done with all of the books. After school, we headed to the Y for my Zumba class and then Zak had a soccer make up class. He enjoyed playing with new kids. I enjoyed that the class was smaller and it was quieter because there was only one class going on, during our normal Sat class we are one of three classes.
Thursday (11/3) was another rough day getting started because Adrian and I stayed up watching the World Series. I finally went to bed at midnight when they declared a rain delay. I was bummed the Indians didn't win, but happy for the Cubs, those fans have waited a long time. I just barely got everyone to school on time and made it through my day. AJ had Brain Balance at night and a lot of homework which made for another long night for all of us.
