Boogs let his hair grow out all summer. It was odd not seeing him with a buzz cut.
We spent a lot of time the first nine weeks of school dealing with an infected bug bite. Boogs had to sit around with moist heat compresses on his arm. It took three rounds of antibiotics to clear it up. That extra sitting around time helped Boogs make straight A's on his report card the first nine weeks of school.
We have a new superintendent in our school district. The superintendent visited every school in the district and had students lead him around the schools to tell him what they liked about their school. Boogs was one of four kiddos chosen at our school to tell the superintendent about our elementary school. Boogs kind of dressed up for the occasion.
Boogs QUEST class is working on creating a community. Each student has to apply for a job. Boogs chose to apply for the position of Judge. I love his reasons: I can tell when people lie. I do not make rash decisions. I do not go easy on friends or go hard on enemies. I do not end trials just to leave. Finally, I have already had experience. I asked Boogs about his experience and he told me he had helped judge and settle a dispute on the playground among some of his friends. (On another note, Boogs weekly occupational therapy is really improving his handwriting.)
We have been keeping busy during our afternoons and weekends. Boogs and I spent some time working with his building kit.
Daddy and I also did some target practice. We shot several different rifles and also a few handguns.
Boogs has enjoyed hanging out with his friends from his old school.
Boogs is also working on learning the 50 states and their capitals. I made a concentration matching game for him to get extra practice.
Yesterday, we had Thanksgiving lunch at school. Nonnie and Poppa came to join Boogs for lunch.
Boogs kept making this weird face when I tried to get a picture of him with Poppa.
I was able to eat lunch with him, too.
It is so hard to believe that Thanksgiving is in a few days. This year has sped by so quickly. Boogs and I get to enjoy an entire week off of school for Fall Break. I plan on being extra lazy (except for Thursday when I will have Thanksgiving Dinner for 20 people at my house) until I have to go back to work. Happy Fall Y'all!
