But enough sadness. Enough. It's time to talk about the good things.
Waaaay back in November, Riley left his glasses on his bedroom floor and Kaleb stepped on them (it was an accident). He broke off one of the nose pads on the frames. I knew that come January, Riley would be going to the eye doctor and might need new lenses and so I said we'd just wait until then to worry about it. They bugged him, though. So he broke off the other nose pad and had some really funny looking glasses. He had an appointment on the 8th, and by the 15th, he had new glasses. He likes them much better. I just hope he takes better care of them this time around.
He looks so handsome in them, doesn't he? :)
Good thing number two: I auditioned for a play on the 7th and I made it to the callbacks on the 12th. I didn't get the part that I wanted the most, but I did get a part! I'm so very excited to be in the cast of the play, Death By Chocolate! I get to play the plucky and cool assistant Dyslexia. She's a great character. This will be a fun play and so far, rehearsals have been awesome.
Good think number three: Zachary had his first school dance on February 15th. It had a western theme and so he wanted me to buy him some cowboy boots. I went to the thrift store and bought some for $13. I'm really glad I did because he hates them. He put them on and he said, "I feel like I am wearing heels." Ha ha ha! That kids cracks me up. I had to explain to him that all cowboy boots have heels so that cowboys don't fall of their horses. They hook their feet into the stirrups and the heels keep the boots from sliding out. Needless to say, he wore them to the dance, but he's probably never going to wear them again.
I got to come help decorate for the dance, so I took some pictures of the decorations. They were really cool. I did not go to the dance, though so no pictures of that. I did ask him if he danced with any girls. He said, "No." Typical.
This is a staging area where the kids could get their pictures taken. Zach took too long doing an assignment and did not get to get his picture taken with his friends. I was not happy with him.
But the decorations turned out really cute and I think we did a bang up job. :)
I have some other good things to blog about, but this is enough for today.
