Pumpkin Patch

First an update on Gage. He's doing much better with the medicine. He slept very well last night, and he's not had any meltdowns like that first day. I also want to leave a comment from an adult w/ADHD: "Please do not let him forget that for every ADHD challenge, ADHD bring with it several equally powerful opportunities." Very true. Gage has always had the amazing ability to pack lots of fun into his days. Even though he's not as hyper on the meds, he's still able to do the things he loves. He's made many trucks and other vehicles out of Legos and added lights to them, big fun for an eight year old! His teacher has been out so I'm not sure what the low down at school is just yet. But I love it when I walk into a child's room, find a substitute unexpectedly and ask, "Um, do you know how to use the mic?" and then hear her say, "yes" and my child confirm that she does know! gotta love it. More later on Gage man....

Today was our Kindergarten field trip to the pumpkin patch. Woo hoo! I suggested that since I was going along, we would just leave the FM mic at school, she is bilateral and does well in those situations as long as I'm there, otherwise, I'd likely want them to wear it!! They all got to pick out a pumpkin to take home....


We locked them all up at The Corn County Jail...but they wouldn't keep them, we asked.....







We all went the corn maze, I tried to scare Brook reminding her of the movie Children of the Corn, but it didn't work....



Some little girl I know put MY name on the dog's head...but it's washable marker and we're expecting rain tonight *smile*
oh and by the way, a few more days left on the weight loss challenge, I've done terrible!!! I think I've only lost five pounds, it was supposed to be 15, just wasn't in the mood! I need to work on that...lol
