October felt like it was over as soon as it started! Can you believe there are only 53 days until Christmas?? We started and ended the month with dressing up. First up was ‘Dress as Your Favourite Book Character’ day at school and Bobby chose Geronimo Stilton. I am not a crafty person by any means so I was very proud of myself for DIYing this up for him the day before.
September was a big month for the kids; Cordelia turned 4 and started ballet, and Bobby started Grade 3. I already feel like I took for granted how relaxed the summer was, it really didn’t feel that way at the time. We have settled into a pretty good routine though, and while it does feel like we aren’t accomplishing everything we’d like to each week… we are happy and (mostly) healthy so that’s all that matters.
Yesterday was Bobby and Daddy’s first Taekwondo Winter Tournament and they’d been looking forward to it for weeks. We weren’t sure how well Cordelia would do at an almost all-day event, so we took both vehicles just in case. Cordelia really wanted to participate too and kept saying how big of a girl she was, so Bobby spent some time showing her his pattern before running off to see his friends.
