It's pouring from TS Hanna and DH and Alan are in Alan's room watching a Three Stooges DVD. Not my thing, but amazing to think it still brings laughs 70+ years later.
Alan had soccer practice on our brand new soccer field (artifical turf) last night. Hope it will be ok with the rain - there's supposed to be an opening day parade tommorrow. New team, new coach, new teamates. Need to replace the 2nd hand cleats I'd gotten him - they are baseball not soccer ones - but they'll be ok for tommorrow.
Packed his backpack for Monday's start of Kindergarten. On Friday we stopped by the school so I could see where his classroom was. His teacher turned out to be there (she seems very nice). Her aide had Alan in his first year of disabled pre-k, so it was nice to see a familiar face. I also saw some names I knew on the sign she had for the class. It was worth stopping by :) We then checked out a local library book sale and a local park. Alan loves pony rides now. We also looked around the zoo - he's been there a few times this year and loves it - not like when he was a toddler and would just zoom past everything.
He's still bossy at home and I hope that calms down after school starts. Otherwise we may see if we can get some help curbing it at home.
I had my annual visit to Sloan Kettering at the end of last month. All is well, I don't need to go back till August 2009. But I've got some sort of congestion now and my chest feels tight. Hope it goes away, I just got over being sick in Mid August :(
Labor Day weekend we did our annual camping trip to Ithaca. Had a good time, although didn't hike much. I did go in the waterfall pool, wasn't brave enough to try jumping off the diving board. Need to get in shape for next summer to try it. We checked out the Farmer's Market (very crunchy with all sorts of interesting eats - asian/organic etc - but NO pickles!)
Today we had company - our friend Dave stopped by to tell us about his singles cruise - he met some people, but it was an interesting itenary as it was diverted due to Hurricane Hanna
. Then a friend of DH's from high school he hadn't seen in 29 years stopped by - he and DH reconnected on classmates.com. Neither one noticed our messy place fortunately.
Anyway, I've got some rebates to send out and paperwork to sort so that's all for now.
