On the 16th, Damien and I went to the annual Fall Festival with Robbie, Naomi, and Sarah. It was a little bit chilly this year, but ended up warming up as the day went on. We had a great time!
Damien is SO excited for Halloween! He’s been watching all the spooky shows on Netflix like The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach. He wants to watch ANYTHING with a zombie in it.
Today we finally got around to carving Damien’s pumpkin. He’s been begging for a Jack-O-Lantern for the past week or so.
The Colonial Williamsburg (Columbus Day) adventure was also Rob and Robin’s last day in town. Damien was upset that they had to leave and kept asking me about it like I could somehow change it. He had the best time with everyone.
Thank you to everyone for making it a memorable trip <3
On Scott’s 30th birthday, we all went to visit the historic Colonial Williamsburg (except for Damien who was in school on Columbus Day). The weather was absolutely perfect and you can just walk around the revolutionary city for free. Scott and I would love to go back sometime with a ticket to go inside the buildings and participate in the tours. You’d definitely need a few days to be able to see everything though!
Great day! And Robin made us a delicious, creamy cheesecake at Scott’s request for this birthday. Yay!
We’ve been busy over the last month so I’m finally getting around to posting my pictures!
I was very nervous at the end of September when faced with both El Nino and Hurricane Joaquin. I think with stores running out of supplies and gasoline with the crowds of people are what made me so concerned. Luckily the hurricane ventured east so we only had to deal with a few hours of high tide on a Sunday (4 Oct). The water was deep enough in some spots that you couldn’t drive through it but other parts were perfectly fine.
I spoke with Damien’s Kindergarten teacher and have already received his first progress report. So far he’s earned himself a “Satisfactory” rating in all categories to include “Conduct” and she said he’s adjusting well. He’s also made friends with three other boys and is still happy to go to school each morning. I’m so proud of him! Now we’re just working on his behavior at home because he tends to get into these controlling/bossy/defiant moods that I find almost unbearable. I’ve been working hard to correct this and I do see some improvement but I know it’s going to be an ongoing process.
