It's been awhile since I've posted, mainly because we haven't done anything particularly noteworthy this past week. As we began school again after spring break, Alexander has slipped back into his old "worry" habits. Some of you may remember him two years ago, crying whenever he left me, worrying he's going to be sick (his biggest hangup) and just generally throwing fits without any apparent reason. Just this morning, I had to put him on the bus crying, "I don't want to go on a field trip!" Now, what child doesn't want to go on a field trip? He's actually worried that he'll be hungry (their lunch has been moved back by 2 hours) and that he'll miss me and that he might be sick on the bus. Once he arrives at school, he's fine. It's just the thinking about it that gets him in a frenzy.
On a more positive note, we got the boys' portraits done over spring break. To take a look at them, go to https://www.smilesbywire.com/home.asp?AC=LTP54701028003JCP, and type in my name. They turned out surprisingly well, except for the one where Benjamin looks a bit possessed. He had a good laugh over that picture.
Oh, and all of you northerners who have been complaining about the cold/snow??? Thanks for the blast of artic air that has been sent our way. Our highs for four days straight are going to be 70 degrees, with lows in the 40's. I know, it's nothing like snow, but we were planning to go to Daytona Lagoon on Wednesday, when the kids get out of school at the rediculous time of 12:15, and now we'll have to find some other way to occupy restless kids for 4 hours in the afternoon. Yuck
