Dear Noah....you finally let me take the pumpkins outside.....

Yes.......here they are. Finally back outside.....where they probably should have been a long time ago. We have had these 2 pumpkins in our home since last fall but anytime I suggested taking them outside to let nature take its course Noah you had a fit. Especially with the little pumpkin which was yours in your room.

Finally a couple of days ago the big pumpkin started leaking on the floor and I announced the day had officially arrived to take them outside. You still did not want to let your little one go......but I said it was best....it had small holes in it and was probably drying up inside or would disintegrate soon. (hey maybe not....it is still fine outside).

Anyway....you agreed to let me take them out to the backyard and told me this year you would get another one........and then on January 1, 2009 you would let me take it outside so we did not keep them as long the next time.

I guess time will tell.

I love you Noah.....very much. Feeling uneasy today about you at school....not sure why. I hope and pray it is for nothing....

I'm surprised with the heat in the house they didn't go bad before now. I remember when Melissa was small, we had a small pumpkin sitting at the edge of the patio, it turned cold one night and the next day when the sun came out, it collasped, she looked outside and said, Aw Mom, the pumpkin died.

Dear Noah, I was in such a rush yesterday, I forgot to say I love you. Hope you have a wonderful stress free day at school today.
Love you to the moon and back.

I don't remember saying that about the pumpkin, but I'm glad you let Mommy take the pumpkins out of the house. Our little pumpkins shriveled up and rotted a long time ago! Love you guys!

It is good to have pumpkins outside where they live, Noah. These are nice pumpkins.

I was directed here from Mr. Lincoln (I hate to say old man Lincoln - he doesn't look old).
I enjoy reading your posts about your son. Our son is 9 and has Aspergers. Some of your daily struggles hit home with me. The quote "feeling uneasy today about you at school", I know exactly how you feel. I can't pinpoint why some mornings I feel this ache in my stomach and wonder if I should even send E on the van.
Best wishes and I'll be stopping by again.
