Fun 31st

We had a great day. We talked about the founder of Girl Scouts. It is Founders Day. We ate caramel apples, went trick or treating at the library and trunk or treating at churches and the comic book store.
Life is pretty good. Now we are watching some Charlie Brown and settling in.

Mondays aren't really stressful for us. It's just another day and apparently today is a day for fave painting and forts. It's been pretty awesome. We've even had hot chicory and are preparing for Dia De Los Muertos. This is out first year celebrating. We never did growing up and I want my kids to have cultural experiences.

Just Life

Really can't complain about home life. Things are going pretty good. It's amazing the kinds of things the kids come up with to do. Legos have been all over the gathering room as of late. We have found the baby duplo blocks at a thrift store. Tanni loves them. Hezzie tells her the colors. It's cute.
I find myself just being in awe of the kids. There are moments they still catch me off guard with their candor and enthusiasm. I am glad they still do. Don't get me wrong  it's not always so nice and quiet. Some days it's loud and messy. It's never full and there is always time for a nap.
I'm looking forward to a future with kids who stay awesome and are their own person.

I took Joaquin to his OT evaluation today. The therapist was excited to see that at only five he can use scissors well. What did she mean I wondered. Turns out a lot of kids aren't allowed to use them. I guess even in school some things are ore cut. This is kind if crazy. I mean, it's useful to know how to do these things. I wonder what else kids aren't able to do. Not by skill, but for the sake if stream lining. Or because its easier for someone else to do.
