Good news Monday

After a weekend filled with sickness (me) and serious behavioral issues at home (E), I was thrilled and a little bit shocked to learn that Elijah had a "wonderful" day at school today. It seems so random. He has been waking up so much and so early the past few nights, so I assumed he would have a rough day. Who ever knows?! Tonight he was unusually focused when following directions and doing homework. Most nights do not go nearly as smoothly. Hopefully it's just a matter of time to get the kinks out. If he has another good day tomorrow, I've promised him a movie theater outing over the weekend. I am not above bribery.

We have been consistent with bringing him to karate since he started a few weeks ago. Dan and I both think it is doing great things for him. Here is a cute video from tonight's lesson. He's slower than the other kids, but he does it correctly! Sound familiar?! :)

Dan said he also got to break his first board tonight! Here is a pic of that.

He earned his first karate "star" tonight for showing self-control and discipline in school today and Thursday of last week. GO ELIJAH!

Sammy is doing GREAT with potty! He has kept his pants totally dry for a few days now. We are still working on #2, but he is doing so well and we are proud! Could it be? Could we possibly have TWO potty-trained boys shortly? I still promise that we are going to throw a Potty Party when that happens. Toilet-shaped cake and all!

Tomorrow marks the middle of the month, which I'm happy about. October is an absolutely insane month for us, so having a breather in a few weeks will be nice. Thank you for checking in! Have a great rest of your week!
