Slow week

We had a family birthday party for Matt the other night, where he got a set of drums and some movie tickets. He wanted Chinese for dinner, so we ordered in. He asked me to make sure they sent chopsticks, so all the other kids wanted chopsticks too. I have some funny pictures but I think I might end up using them in my hall of fame entry, so I am holding off on posting those.

I went in for Matt's IEP meeting yesterday morning and came home feeling so proud of him. I knew he was still struggling in math, but he is right where he needs to be in everything else. Not only that, but his teachers really like him, and he is working really hard and enjoying school a lot. I was worried more about him being back in school than anybody, and it does my heart good to see him so happy there.

The elementary school invited kids and parents over after school on Tuesday to play some learning games. There were about 12 families there total, and we made it through three of the stations. Faith loves to play any form of Memory, and the boys really liked playing the computer games in the library station.

I haven't gotten very much else done this week, though. Poor little Beth has the flu, so most of the last two nights and days have been spent getting her through all the nasties the flu brings, trying to keep her fever down, and just letting her rest when she does sleep. I am hoping the worst of it is over.

The CHA dinner has kept me pretty busy as well. I think it is all going to come together fine in the end. It is just getting so large. There are almost 300 people signed up now.

My scraproom is clean right now. I am going to make some dinner, and since my house is cleaned up I am hoping to get some creative time in after Jack gets home. I will share anything I don't have to keep hidden for now!

Love the birthday cake. Poor Beth, she really looks out of it bless her. Glad you had a great time at the school and that your son enjoys school, that is so important.
