Getting Back

Looking at the time span between my last post and now I'm sure you can tell we are back to our routine.  A routine of constant clock watching.  School, speech, school, Bible Study, and school pretty much sums it up.
Every day this week after dropping Cooper off at school, Cameron & I made a grocery store run.  Sit him in the cart, give him my phone, and pile groceries around him and he's fine with anything.
Cameron spent the night with Steve's parents last night.  It was the first time he has even been away from home without us.  He did great!!!  Cooper on the other hand wasn't so great about it.  He didn't understand why he couldn't go as well.  We made it up to him by taking him on a walk in the rain, making homemade milkshakes, popcorn and a movie night, and chocolate chip pancakes this morning. 
 He also insisted on riding Cameron's tricycle instead of his own bike. 
 Steve went to Hoosier Hysteria with dad & brother today.  After lunch I took the boys up to my mom's house, she dog sat for a friend of hers this week and since Cooper is terrified of dogs we weren't able to visit.  Cooper begged my mom to let him stay for a couple hours.  He stayed there, Cameron & I went home and took naps.
Tracey's parents had their annual fall festival at their house this evening.  It took all of about 1.234 seconds for the boys to jump on the barrel ride.  Don't you just love their matching jackets?  Uncle Scott got one for Cooper a few years ago.  Last year he started to grow out of it so he got him a new one.  Now Cameron fits in the one Cooper used to have.   They are both a size bigger than they would normally wear, I'm hoping they can both last another year.
The fall festival was a blast.  Cooper went up and down the inflatable slide and obstacale course over and over again.  I ate some fantastic chili and even won a door prize- a new Christams wreath.  We were leaving and they were running down a hill to our car, Cooper asked me run with them.  My reply, "I am carrying a backpack, three camping chair, and a freaking wreath, no I can't run with you".  I didn't really say freaking but  I was thinking it. 
Thank you again Tracey for inviting us, the boys loved it and we got out of the house.
