Clayton has been having a lot of homework this year. One day last week, he got home at 3:45 and worked until 7:45 on homework...not a project, just homework. I'd like to go on record and say, "I do not like or agree with homework." He sure does look grown up sitting here though.
Jack and Andrew's school has an event each year called the Ram Run. For those of you reading and not familiar with the Ram Run, let me give you a run down. The PTO asks for pledges and then your child gets to go to a party based on how much money they raise. The day of Ram Run, each grade goes outside to run around the school building. What you should read here is that I write a check and the kids get to go to a Sock Hop. It's the easiest fund raiser ever because of suckers like me.
So last Friday Fred and I stood outside while Jack's grade and Andrew's grade ran around the building. We cheered our boys on and marveled at how much Jack looks and runs like Fred.
Here's Jack with his buddies.
Here's Andrew with his buddy...
After the Ram Run, I headed to Jackson for a women's conference where I was a break our session leader. Hopefully, my speaking skills were better than my selfie skills. Yikes.
Speaking of being the tallest people ever...I mean, how tall do I look in this picture? Goodness.
There was a tower of cupcakes at the conference. I don't think I need to say anything else.
This week has been Red Ribbon Week at school, which means all three boys have had the option to dress up. Each day has a theme. Andrew is all over this! Monday was "Dress for the Red Carpet Day". I think Andrew looks like a Blues Brother, but he was pleased with his look, so we went with it.
Exhibit A...Who would not love this sweet couple from 1997? I'm not sure what we were doing, but we were nailing the 90's. Note my plaid shirt under the fleece jacket...not pull over...jacket. I bought it at the GAP and loved it.
Exhibit B...I'm wearing overalls and athletic tennis shoes (Please note I was not a runner. These were simply aesthetic.)
