Dear Noah....state mandated tests.....and used book store shopping!
This week is state mandated testing.....for reading, math and science. You have reading and math done...Friday will be science. You feel you have done really well so far. Today on math it did not even take you 1 hour to answer all the questions. I think you came out in like 45 minutes or so...and there were like 46 questions. So you did pretty well I think.
The weather has been super nice. Monday after testing we went to Cracker Barrel to eat. You had breakfast and must have been super hungry as you had almost 2 pancakes, 1 bowl of cheerios and some of my chicken! You have been trying some new things recently....and have discovered you like them! SO slowly you are broadening what you can eat...or are at least more willing to give something new a try!
We have been super busy here. We are in the process now of probably buying the house we have been renting for the past 4 years. We have had an oven/fire and water heater leak and they have all been replaced now. We have had some new piping put in for the water heater. NOW your school computer is not working so they are sending out a new one and we will be returning this one. To say that things have been a little hectic around here is an understatement!
You are growing up. You have been so very helpful lately and I appreciate that. Today we stopped by the secondhand book store on our way home in town. You have been anxiously awaiting a trip back there...why? Because you love to go to the ROMANCE novel section and in private (meaning you want me OUT of that same room)...you like to pull the books out one by one off the shelf to see the covers! Yes...you are liking the women more and more all the time!
You are so funny...and have developed quite a sense of humor and are really understanding more and more innuendos all the time. I am looking forward to finishing this year out in school with you...and finishing organizing the house and having an even better year with you for school next year!
We have some exciting things planned this summer. We have been and will continue to be pretty busy!
I love you my little YOUNG man!
