Overall, I think the kids enjoyed the last week of summer...even though they probably wish for another one.
William is enjoying his soccer practice- hard and tiring though it is. And the big news is that Melissa got my first choice in teachers!! YEAH!! I can not tell you what stress this takes away. We just had such a hard year in third grade - we just could not go through anther year with a (mean) teacher we (really, really) didn't like. Ben got a teacher new to the school - which I think is better than the few I knew I would have problems with.
Then there's the other issue we dealt with this week. Ben and his weight. Or rather - he's lack of.
Earlier in the week I asked what I thought was a simple question of where he is on the growth chart and got a doctor to really dive into his records. He came out not so happy.
Long story short we're now on a plan to see if Ben can gain weight. If he can - great! If not...well, I really don't want to think of the words associate with that.
Our goals this week: 1)to enjoy the kids back in school 2) get Ben to eat more all without the other two (or Drew and I!) eating more.
Milkshake and fries anyone?
