And Don’t Forget About Cars and Coffee

And Don’t Forget About Cars and Coffee

The Pits: I stood with Turner and Weston while they apologized to the girl from the bus that they had made upset. Her mom was with her this morning, and I could tell Weston was really embarrassed to have to apologize in front of her mom. But they did good. They seemed to work it… Read more »

FITS

The Pits: At the bus stop today, the dad of one of Weston’s friends approached me. Apparently, on more than one occasion, his daughter has come home crying and saying that Weston was saying mean things to her on the bus. After discussing this with the boys, it turns out that Turner was telling Weston… Read more »

The Pits: I got home a little later than usual so the family went on down to the park while I ate. I joined them after I finished, but didn’t really get to spend much time with them otherwise. The Peaks: As I was on the way to wake Weston up this morning, I heard… Read more »

The Pits: Trek pooped on the floor and it was soft. Recently, I started singing a silly song about “Solid Poop” and it has stuck with the boys. Anytime there’s mention of poop, they break into the chorus of “Solid Poop.” The Peaks: Tonight was our first true Scout meeting. We met in the gym… Read more »

The Pits: I tried making overnight oats for breakfast, but it wasn’t impressive. The Peaks: Fairly productive day at work.

Suck It, Blade Runner

The Pits: Busy day all around. The Peaks: Traci has injured her foot somehow and didn’t feel like going for a WITS tonight. Turner was wanting to rollerblade, so we just went back and forth between our house and the nearest cul de sac. Weston rode his scooter and tired out quickly. Turner actually did… Read more »
