what’s up

what’s been keeping me busy?  life.  it’s a real blog killer.  we recovered from swine flu.  no confirmation that that’s actually what s9 had, but it’s the assumption and it’s much easier to  just go along with that than have to explain the how come of why we didn’t have him tested.  so, s9 has now recovered from swine flu.  but the school hasn’t.  last week they shut down the entire 3rd grade.  today they shut down the other 5th grade class – the one s9 isn’t in.  and a12 has informed me that 2 more sick 7th graders and the 7th grade will be shut down.  pandemics are very disruptive and most inconvenient.

we’ve also been preoccupied with all things puppy.  because he’s just way too cute.

he’s napped on my bed.

he’s been given a bath. whether he wanted it or not.  very much like our resident 9 year old.

we’ve attended a few futsal practices and games.  futsal is similar to soccer, but played on a court with smaller goals and it is not to be confused with fusbal.  kids make fun of you when you do that.

other things we’ve done:

bowling with many 7th graders.  entertained a group of 9th graders and taken in a foreign exchange student.  sort of.  his name is joel and he’s from holland.  but his family lives here.  his parents have been away so he’s stayed with us the past week.  and i will forever refer to him as our dutch foreign exchange student.  because i think it’s funny.

  3. Busy, busy! That dog is too cute, she’d be allowed to get into all kinds of mischief here. 🙂

    Glad your boy’s all better. I hope his case wasn’t too bad.
