Today we ventured out to Green Hand Farm Park in Gloucester. They had a lot of stuff to do and their theme this year was Minecraft! We all got to experience a corn maze for the first time and their lemonade was AMAZING.
We picked out a couple of pumpkins from their pumpkin patch which we’ll be decorating tomorrow. We didn’t even do everything they had to offer. They had zombie paintball where you shoot paintballs at people dressed up as zombies from a moving truck. Damien was too scared to try it, but maybe next year.
Our September and October this year feels extra busy. I don’t think it’s going to slow down anytime soon! Between all of the obligations and activities, I think we’re all exhausted.
Damien’s progress report came out at the beginning of the month to show his progress half-way through the first quarter of second grade. I was disappointed to see such low grades. He got a B in Math, Cs in Science and Social Studies, and Ds in Reading and Writing. I’ve been in touch with his teacher, but I’m not really getting anywhere…at least not quickly. My only concern is him falling behind if this is how the school year is starting. We’ll just do our best like we always do.
The swimming lessons are still a hit, especially now that he has his goggles! He only has one more session before he moves onto the next level. We decided to do the next level since he’s been putting in so much effort to do well. Then we’ll probably take a break for a bit during the winter.
