Basketball season is over/ A funny story about our 8 year old grandson
Basketball for Mabel ended a couple weeks ago. She also takes dance lessons. I don't know if she will play sports in the spring. Goose has been on a soccer travel team all year That's where she excels. Basketball ended early for K the oldest as she broke a finger. Goose actually has a black eye from running into a pole. It's kinda a family issue with not looking where you are going.
Now, the Colorado kids are into dancing for E. and fishing for our Fisherboy. I am hoping to fly out when E. has her dance competitions. I love watching them. I like Dance Moms for the dancing. I sure don't like Abby.
Our grandson had a school project to do for a month. Getting him to do something is like pulling teeth. He had to decorate a box from one scene in the book he read. Boxcar Kids, I think was the title. He kept putting it off because he told everyone that Grammy would do it. So I scanned the book quickly and suggested a scene where the mom sells pies. Still not motivates and me not wanting to do it for him, I outlined a kitchen on the back wall. I gave him a foam person. He finally decorated the person to look like a mom. He stated, "This is the hardest thing I ever did." Hah. All he did was cut out clothes from construction paper. I told him he had to color in the kitchen wall. Oh my gosh, that took another forever. He said, "It has to look good because I got some future girlfriends in this class." He flipped his hair and said, " All I have to do is walk through my class, and I got 20 girlfriends." I knew he wouldn't say that to anyone other than me. All of a sudden all the wall was colored. Yeah. He stole a table from Mabel's house for the pies. But Mabel through a fit and there was a big fight and she won. I told him to take it later or I would give him a table. I am giving him my left over pies from my swap. So he is finished. I have seen some of these projects before. They have been so overboard. His will look simple but like he did it not an adult.
I think it might get close to freezing today. Wow, it has been bitter, HUGS
