Dear Noah....we have had a busy week!

Monday since I was off work we went to the Cracker Barrel for of your favorite places. You were hungry and got a bowl of pancake with butter and syrup and 2 slices of bacon! PLUS MILK!

After our stop there we went to a nearby park where we saw some gorgeous fall leaves on the trees and an ALBINO SQUIRREL! You liked swinging on the swings and playing but took your shoes off and I am sure all the leaf dust is what made you start sneezing later!

Then we had to come back home to get papers to take to Staples to make copies to send to your new school. All your paperwork has now been received and you have taken the placement tests....we just have to wait on a call from the special ed teacher to re-write your IEP and have teachers assigned to help us out when needed and we can get started! Meanwhile we have continued working on some things on our own here at home.

Then we drove to Richmond, Indiana and ate at the best Fazoli's restaurant ever! The atmosphere was so wonderful had 3 rooms for eating...the largest being darker and having a big fake tree with white lights all over it in the center of the room. I chose sitting in that room (though you wanted to sit right beside the bathroom!) We had excellent food and will be going back.

THEN we drove to Warm Glow Candle outlet to check out all their Christmas stuff. We love going there. Here are a few pictures from that.




OH and last night we went to Krogers to get cereal to make you party mix for snacking and they had your favorite Pillsbury create and bake refrigerated rolls of GINGERBREAD cookie dough and they now have CHUBS of the dough....2 POUNDS for less than what we paid for the 1-lb rolls in the past.  They are HUGE rolls of cookie dough....I love them. I just wanted to grab them all and take them home and bake them all up!  They have gingerbread and sugar cookie and peanut butter.....with a new way to open from the side seal now instead of having to cut the ends of the tube off.  CAN WE SAY YUM!!  AND 2 for 5.00 is so cheap for these! 


You also wrote your parapro from your former school a very nice letter which I will post about next week. AND a remark from you that I felt was noteworthy was last night when you came to me and said "I just pooped a log!" yeah.....that's my Noah! Job well done! haha

Dear Noah,
Sounds like you and Mommy have had a busy week. Also lots of fun from the looks of the photos.

I don't know where you kids get the things you say. You pooped a log and the other day Audrey came out of the bathroom and said I've dumped three times now. I guess her tummy was a little nervous like yours use to get Mommy. Remember?

Well have to run, you two have a good day. Love you both to the moon and back. Grandma

It looks like you guys have been really busy. Sounds like fun at the restaurants and also the candle company. The cookies look yummy too.

Love you both!

Hi Melinda,

The virtual academy sounds like it will be great for Noah. I will be doing something similar in our state for Nigel next year. I think things will be much more positive for all of us!

P.S. That albino squirrel is amazing! I've never seen one before.
