Father's Day

On Sunday we left the house around 10:45am to go to Rich & Laura's house for a while. After we dropped the truck off we had lunch at IHOP and then went back to their house to go swimming. Laura had to work from 12-4pm, but called to say she was bringing crabs home from work. So we stayed for dinner and ate lots of crabs! The boys had fun playing with Haleigh in the pool all day and they enjoyed some crab meat as well.

Monday we didn't do too much. The boys and I went to the grocery store and the dollar store. I had a coupon for $5 off a $20 purchase at the dollar store so I started stocking up on preschool workbooks for Zak and I to do next year while Ryder is in school. At the grocery store we got some WIC stuff along with deli meat for lunches this week. For dinner the four of us ate more crabs that we brought home from our crab feast on Father's Day.

Today the boys and I went to WalMart on our way to Ryder's class. When we parked Zak told me he was tired and needed to go to sleep in the cart. This is big because he usually fights me and won't even sit in a cart while shopping. The whole time in WalMart Zak laid down in the cart just like he said he needed to!

This week's class had more kids in it than usual since this was the first week of the summer schedule. There were about 10 kids in the class today and possibly 3 more will be coming other weeks over the summer. Ryder was overwhelmed with the amount of kids, but I am hoping he will get used to all of the new kids and do better as the summer continues. Zak loved having all of the kids in the class, but he did not behave as well as he did last week. He took advantage of the fact that most of the kids in the class are shy, quiet, and passive. He was constantly jumping up and answering for others, yelling out answers, pushing kids over to get their toys, as well as a few other things. The other parents and teacher were all really nice about how Zak was acting, but hopefully he will start to show better behavior throughout the summer!

I wanted to post another picture from Saturday when Tracy, Dave & Kyle were over. I took this on my cell phone so the quality is not great, but I think it is so cute!

Tomorrow Ryder's speech therapist is coming to the house for her session with him. I am still waiting to hear back from the OT to schedule our next appointment. She only works part-time and I think over the summer her schedule is crazy since she has two kids that will be out of school. If the scheduling gets really complicated I might ask to see the full-time therapist. She only comes twice a month and Ryder will no longer get in-home therapy once he turns 3 so we may not get to see the OT much this summer since we only have about 6 weeks until his birthday. Ben and I are thinking about taking the boys to see Toy Story 3 in the movie theater this weekend so I will update once we make our final decision.
