The good news is, orientation went well on Monday night. They really took to the school and their teachers. My first impression was that the school was very tight-knit. That they all know each other and if they don’t know you yet, it’s only a matter of time.
Ian was really taken with his art teacher, Mr. Peterson. He’s excited about getting to do some work with the Arkansas Arts Center and going there for field trips.
Oh, yesterday Ian had to go to the doctor to get his physical so he could play sports. It was the “big one” for boys… you know, “turn and cough”. LOL He wasn’t very happy about it, but he got over it pretty quick. He also had to get two shots…Tetanus and the meningitis vaccine. He really manned up and didn’t even flinch. A few years ago, it took 5 of us to hold him down to give him a shot…this was a nice change.
Apparently with the scare over kids keeling over during sporting events, they’ve now added taking an EKG to the physical. So, as any proper mom would do, I promptly humiliated him by snapping a picture and now I shall further the humiliation by posting said picture here…
after I dropped the boys off today, I joined a fitness center. I did 30 mins on the elliptical (ouch) and then worked arms and abs. (ouch, ouch) As much as it hurt, it also felt great to be back in the gym. All my soft bits were getting softer….
