Kenny's had his eye on a "new-to-him" car, so he and a friend went to go check it out on Tuesday. It was parked in the driveway when I got home....
...and I got this picture from Kenny when he was out scouting for elk later in the week.
Very happy that he was able to find something that suits his personality and that will be functional for him too.
Graham has a new found interest in learning how to type. This is a skill that is now much more important at a younger age (I didn't learn how to type until I was in high school!) and even more important as the state assessment now involves typing answers on the computer (new this year). Graham doesn't take the state assessment until next year, but they're starting to prepare the kids long before that. We found a fun program to help him learn, and he's a little bit obsessed.
It was nice to have help with baths this week - Kenny doesn't mind the chore nearly as much as I do. Sammie even got in on the action this week and Eleanor was happy to help Kenny get her cleaned up.
Kenny stayed back at home with Ellie while Graham and I went to basketball practice - I can't tell you how awesome it is to have two adults at home again :)
And then finally we made it to Friday. On the way to school, Ellie asked Graham if he would read a book to her. He hesitated at first, but I think he read it 3 times before we made it to school. By the end, she was reciting it along with him. He can be (and very often is) a pretty awesome big brother....
The kids were with Wil tonight - I heard they were going to the dance party at school this evening. Kenny and I used Chery's season tickets to the Duck men's basketball game this afternoon. It's always a fun experience and we're appreciative of the opportunity to go.
We picked up some pizza and Faith after the game, then headed home to catch up on episodes of The Walking Dead. Happily settling into routines again :)
