It was a busy weekend. We brought a couple tubs of stuff to the semi-annual kids stuff consignment sale. Seth sold the most things. He went through his bedroom and filled up a tub with toys. We also sold the play kitchen and the Mega Blocks. We never told Logan about it because when we asked him what he wanted to sell, he kept saying he wanted to keep everything. Once the play kitchen was gone we moved Logan’s play barbecue grill downstairs and replaced the swivel glider in his room with a smaller chair. He has much more room now.
I took the boys to Scheels because Seth wanted to get a larger football (the same size as what he was using on his football team). Of course that meant that Logan had to have one too. Before we left I took the boys for a ride on the Ferris wheel and they both enjoyed it.
We took the kid’s shower nozzle off and replaced it with a handheld nozzle with a button to turn off the water. Had we been thinking we could have sold the kid’s nozzle at the consignment sale. As it stands, we now already have something to sell next spring.
I also put the hardtop back on the Jeep Sunday. When we went for our topless drive it was a littler chillier than previous rides as I don’t usually wait this long to swap tops. I ordered rims from Quadratec back on August 16th, but I am still waiting on the 5 rim to arrive. I have contacted them several times and each time they say “will be back in stock in a couple days”. I emailed them this morning asking to cancel the order and send call tags for the four rims they did ship
Logan amazed me three Saturday nights ago by insisting I sit out in the hall with his door open a few inches instead of sitting in the chair by his bed. He didn’t change his mind after we read our books, and fell asleep in under 10 minutes. He did the same thing again Sunday night with Susan. Things went back to normal on Monday night. I suspect not taking a nap on Saturday and Sunday is the reason. His first day in the Zebra room was last week, but he got a bad case of “turf toe” and is having problems walking around.
Seth played his first football game two Saturdays ago, and he was the first kid on his team to be quarterback. He threw for a touchdown and ran for a touchdown. Logan threw a fit about forgetting his baseball hat so Susan drove all the way back across town to get it for him. We went to the downtown arts festival afterwards, but did not stay long because Susan wasn’t feeling well. We took the kids to the apple orchard that Sunday afternoon and picked 10 pounds of apples.
Seth went to spend three nights with G&G a couple Thursdays ago. Logan was devastated when he found out Thursday when Susan picked him up from daycare. We had lots of special things planned for him. Thursday night we played board games with him. Friday we went downtown and took Logan on a carriage ride. Saturday Cassie took him to the fair for a few hours, then we went to Newton Hills until sometime after 9PM. Sunday morning we had breakfast at Perkins, then took him to the Watertown zoo before picking up Seth. Before it was all over Logan was embracing not having Seth around. He kept saying. “Seth doesn’t get to do this” for the various things we were doing.
Seth had fun at G&G’s. His favorite part was driving the golf cart. Those three days were a big step for both boys. It was fun watching Logan make decisions for himself instead of agreeing with Seth all the time.
Last week in the afternoon we took the kids to the fair in Parker. I went on the Hurricane with Seth and felt nauseated all the rest of the time. Logan wanted to go on a giant, semi-trailer-mounted slide but was too short to go by himself. So, I ended up going with him twice. At the end Seth and Susan went on the Zipper.
