We are heading out in the morning to visit my most handsome, just had a birthday, grandfater and his bride of 67 years. My grandmother's birthday is on the 23rd so we are going to visit them this weekend and celebrate. I can't wait!
The boys haven't been up to their house yet. It's huge and the land around it is huge as well. There's a creek and quiet and good food and love... oh I am looking forward to sharing that with my boys! I have such wonderful memories of exploring the house and the yard finding all kinds of fun things to keep me busy. My grandfather is a master gardener so we will be eating fresh produce all weekend. yum!
Z and his friends will be manning the house while we are gone. Now if he were a different child I would have been worried when he asked me what the rules were for having people over. I told him 'Don't trash the house, don't do anything illegal, don't eat ALL the food, and if it breaks you are responsible'. To which he replied "Concerning illegal, are we talking by American or British standards?" I told him he was a smart boy he could figure it out...lol I know he will be fine, and I am sure they will have fun playing house.
S had her first driving lesson last night! Daddy took her up to the local elementary school to drive around. They only came precariously close to an object onceand both she and daddy were smiling when they got out of the car. She was asking to go back out an hour later. oh.... having a driving teen .... pray for us. ;o)
The boys have been having a tough week or so. N has been having some pretty big tantrums again and E has started being defiant. I am hoping it's a stage. They are both getting pretty mouthy as well. We are working on respect although neither seem to care so much.
The economy has forced our hand and we will no longer have our Manny. Since S will be home we are going to have her watch the boys during the day. Not something she's thrilled about but we are going to work out a schedule and try to get friends to come over and play or take the boys out for fun. I think they also need to have others to play with other than themselves. They tend to drive each other crazy. ;o)
If any of you have ideas for daily schedules I would welcome the suggestions.
Both boys need structure and I think it will help them to have a schedule daily. As well as help S keep things in better order.
Have a great weekend every one.
