You're Somethin' Else

We had an excellent time at the 2010 Ward Halloween Party! I wonder what the chances are that next year we can get dad to dress up?

Halibut has been working very hard at school. I always get really good reports from his teacher, but hitting the highest rung of the 'behavior chart' has proven a little difficult. On this day, October 4, 2010, he decided to memorialize the fact that he made it to "Exceptional" by writing it in a card (he "exed" out the other half of the card that was his birthday message from Grandma & Grandpa).

A while later, he decided that we needed to have a behavior chart here at home. So he made one up himself for our family with everyone's name on it and posted it on the bulletin board. He is doing great around here now that his performance is tangibly recorded where it can be seen. We are very proud of him.

Today, he even moved me to 'Super'! I feel pretty good about that...

Pot Pie, oh my!

We love pot pie around here! The turkey leftovers were getting a bit tiresome after a week, but, it semed like they were always scarfed up when I put them in a pie. This one turned out especially pretty... so I had to show it off!

It is not possible!

So Excited for Scouts!

Halibut just can't wait until he is able to go to Scouts! Even though he has several months let before he can start, he decided to wear his Scout shirt to school yesterday and proudly showed it off to his teacher. He had a fantastic day and came home with a note saying he'd been "Exceptional". He told me that wearing his uniform was what helped him be exceptional. Maybe what we wear does matter...
