First off…MAJOR SHOUT OUT for Ella Kate, she got TRIPLE HONOR ROLL! She got all A’s, all E’s, and had perfect attendance. She got her rewards as we got back from fall break and I said, well you won’t get that this 9 weeks…since she was sick! But way to go little dude! She has been doing really well in first grade. She is reading on an almost third grade level and is 97% ahead of most first graders in the country! The girl loves books. For real.
So throughout October we have done some Fallish things: corn maze, pumpkin patch, church festivals, trick or treating!
After the corn maze we met up with one of Michael’s runner friends who is moving to California, for a last hooray dinner. We went to Pyros…super yum-o pizza! And I discovered that they are opening one on Germantown Parkway! Woop
And just like Disney, Addison wasn’t tall enough for most of the rides. While we were waiting on Michael and EK, we ran into OLAF!! She was in heaven!
Something WILD happened on Halloween night…it was super duper COLD and WINDY!!! Ella Kate has on three layers! She was upset about wearing a shirt under her dress and I told her to go stand outside for a while and she came back in and said she was cold! The Kerstings went to eat Mezcal with us and they needed a neighborhood for trick or treating…so we volunteered ours!
And one more thing…Ella Kate is now a BROWN belt ninja! Just one more…black! Oh I hope they let her get her black belt, it would mean so much to her…I know they are going to suggest her moving to the American belt (Juniors)…but I am going to see if they can let her go for the black belt. Michael is going to make a stand so she can display all her ninja belts on her wall! So we shall see, she tests early December.
Addison hasn’t been napping at school. I picked her up one day and she was a mess. I told her to hush and go to sleep. I looked back and she did just that!
