Hard to believe that my son has finished 2nd grade and will be going into 3rd grade next school year. This school year has been a crazy one for us. T’s teacher, boy I couldn’t stand her ass, she kept taking stuff away from T even tho he didn’t do anything, always complaining about him, etc. Of course we couldn’t move him into a different class because our school is already packed since they closed the other elementary school a few years ago, so classrooms are at their max.
Then we dealt with T being bullied in his classroom & on the bus. The bus driver would keep moving his seat & didn’t help with the issues. Then one day he came home & told us about a kid threatening to fight him & that was it, we went right up to the school, made the principal leave a meeting to talk to us. We told her what happened & what has been going on with the classroom & the bus. Needless to say things got better real quick, she talked to his teacher & looked at the camera footage from the bus & got everything taken care of. She also told T to don’t be afraid to go see her if something happens. Apparently he was afraid to get into trouble for going to the principal what’s happening.
Besides from having a few problems, T did really good in school. We are super proud of him & excited that he is moving onto the 3rd grade.
Now T is enjoying summer vacation then in July he starts his summer enrichment program the school is having. Its a 4 week program each week is something different then on that Friday the kids go on a field trip that is related to what they learned that week. This is something new the school is doing and was limited to a certain amount of students & the best part is that it’s a free program!!!
Our local library had an event, where a local company called “Brushstrokes” came in read a story to the kids & then the kids got to paint a ceramic lion. I took T to it & he had a blast, I can’t remember the story they read but it was pretty darn cute. T was so excited that he was going to get to paint a lion, but was bumming he couldn’t take it home that day. I had to explain to him, that they had to take it back to the store, put a special glaze on it & put it in a kiln. The lady said that in 1-2 weeks he would be able to get his lion, needless to say about 1.5 weeks later I got the phone call that his lion was available for pick up, along with his friends lions that he went to the event with.
I’m glad I was able to get him signed up for the event, since the last one with Brushstrokes the event was full and didn’t know about it til the day before it. I’m hoping they do another one, because it is a really awesome event and all the kids have a blast.
I grew up around my great grandparents, but unfortunately died years before I had T. I wish they were alive to meet him because they would just love him so much. But thankfully T gets to be around his great grandparents has a child. He is the 1st great grandson so he gets quite spoiled by them. T loves them so much and thinks it’s awesome when he gets to spend the night at their house.
This picture is from the Christmas party that was at the VFW that Ts great grandpa signed him up for. I told them.before we left that I wanted a photo of them. I honestly don’t have many of the 3 of them, and if anything was to ever happen we’ll always have our memories & photos. It’s always fun seeing T spend time with them & it does them good to, to have someone like T around.
For this year we had Thanksgiving at our house, but it was only myself, D, T, my ma & my brother. The rest of the family had a dinner the week before without us because A) there was people there that if I showed up my mouth would run & possible fight would happen B) well that’s kind of personal. But the whole family agreed to do Thanksgiving like that this year, but Christmas I guess we might be getting together who knows, this family is a bag full of crazies.
My brother checking out my 3DS xl, of course T is right there next to him
My brother came out hours before dinner & T was so excited to see his uncle. My brother was having fun checking out my 3DS, then got all excited because I said we had a 3 in 1 that has Nintendo, Super Nintendo & Sega in it, so we dug that out with the game cartridges & boy it felt we were kids again playing the games.
Nothing fancy looking but man the food was yummy
D cooked Thanksgiving dinner & it came out pretty good 🙂 Of course T had to show his ass & take forever eating but he did manage to eat his food. Then we just all sat & had a good time. Overall, Thanksgiving this year was good, no listening to who do this & that, who is in more pain, so on & so on.
So back in September T had fallen at school and broken his arm, boy that’s an experience I do not want to re-live again. Always making sure the arm was covered when he showered, the smell that would come from the cast & how much it hurt when you’d get hit by it. But, of course we’d do it all over again if we had to, but let’s hope we don’t lol.
On November 2, 2016 was an exciting day for T. It was the day his cast was finally coming off, he had it on for about 5 weeks and his bones healed up great!! I personally have never seen a cast be taken off & obviously neither has T, so when it came to time it was pretty awesome. The doctor showed that it wouldn’t hurt, he turned on the machine & put the blade on his hand & showed it didn’t cut, so T was okay with it. It took maybe 2 mins to get the cast to come off. T got all excited that it was off, but said it felt weird & light, mainly because he didn’t have the heavy cast on anymore. Some how he managed to get a corn kernel in his cast, because when the cast came off there was a piece of corn, doctor got a good laugh out of it.
It took about 1-2 days for T to get re-adjusted to not having his cast on, but once he got better he was back to his normal dare devil self. We asked T if he learned his lesson & if he’s planning on doing it again & he said he won’t be doing it ever again because he don’t want another cast.
T as Capitan America
Halloween this year was a lot of fun, at first didn’t think D was going to be able to go due to work but he decided to call off 🙂
A friend of ours who is like a sister & her son came over then we went out trick-or-treating. We only hit a few streets but the boys did get a decent amount of candy. Of course this being western new york, it was cold when we started & kept getting colder.
My aunt & grams passing out candy @ my grams place
Later after our friend & son went home T wanted to watch “Spookley the Square Pumpkin”. Trent had a good time except at one house, the lady was a bit older & took forever passing out candy. So the kids had to wait & wait, once it was their turn the lady asked T if he was banging his bucket on the stairs railing, he said yes & she said well you don’t get any candy. Seriously?! These kids are waiting forever & just being kids & you’re going to do that? Poor T he ran to us crying, he’s just bad & can’t have candy. Of course other parents are looking at us giving us looks, like really people, it was bullshit, but whatever we left bitching & D was highly pissed off. It took a while before T was calmed down & back to himself, it really bothered him. Needless to at we know where to not go next year. Atleast he was able to finish his Halloween on a good note with chicken nuggets & a movie 🙂
We hope you all had a fun/safe Halloween. Have you ever had a problem like we did this year?!
We are currently sitting on our front porch enjoying the nice day. It’s one of those days were you just wanna be outside instead of doing homework. So today T and myself are enjoying the afternoon then later we’ll get to his homework. Besides his homework is so easy, read 15 mins, math flashcards and spelling.
Are there days you let your kid(s) do their homework later so they can enjoy a nice day?
