Things have been better at work lately. I've came up with a few new strategies for myself and my assistant to help us better manage some of our more difficult children. They seem to be working, but we did just start them this week. Brent was also in the emergency room right after Aaron.s birthday. Luck for us, it turned out to be nothing!
All the snow we had melted and then we had those torrential rains. Needless to say, the pond behind our house crested as well and the irrigation run-off pond. Can you say muddy waters? Brent is loving it though. We bought him new boots and he can't stay out of the water!
Brent's best friend Brandon turned 10! I can't believe Brent is going to be 10 next month. No more single digits! I told him this will be the last time that your going to be a single digit. He didn't seem to mind either way.
Brent and Brandon found a new way to fly a kite! They attached it to the back of Brent's quad and Brent drove it around the backyard. They were having fun until is got caught in a tree. It's still there today! Oh well.
Lastly I have to say that Brent has been such an amazing kid lately. He's always been a great kid, but lately he's been helping out more around the house and not complaining about doing things that he's asked, so I couldn't resist letting him buy some songs for his iTouch. He even found a great place to chill out and listen to them ... my bed!
Well, I think that about wraps up the past few weeks! This coming weekend looks crazy with a party for my neice Cory and nephew Jake who are turning 12, a birthday movie for Brent's friend Brandon, and I'm hosting a purse party ... so I'll try to post before then.
