Character Parade

Instead of dressing for Halloween Kai's class was allowed to dress as a character from a book for school today. They had to be able to retell the story to their class. Kai chose to dress as "Pirate Pete" and Kaden went as a pumpkin from Pumpkin Town. We are going to spend the afternoon in Kai's class helping with the "fall activities". We had to go to the grocery store after we dropped Kai off this morning and Kaden would NOT wear his costume in the store because all the other people would be dressed in normal clothes.
The other day I had to go to a funeral so Kaden and I went dressed in "church clothes" to school. He about melted down because he didn't want the other kids to see him all dressed up. He's fine wearing church clothes to church but he knew the other kids wouldn't be in church clothes at school. REALLY, concerned what you look like and fitting in at age 3?

Camping in FL

Kai has been wanting Matt to take him camping since he missed the Father/Son outing due to his broken arm last spring. So Friday night Matt pitched two tents in the back yard. Kaden was fine until it was time to go to bed and then he wanted to come in and sleep in his own bed. Me, I slept inside in my comfortable bed with the a/c on. Matt stuck it out and slept out there with Kai. I like this camping arrangement.

A pocket full

I was sitting on the bleachers watching Friday night's game and I looked up and saw Kai fumbling with his pants. I got a closer look and he had what I thought was a whole back pocket full of sand. His favorite past time in baseball is to play with the sand in the outfield. When he played catcher, he'd bend down to pick up the ball and make sure he got a hand full of sand in the process. Anyway, I jumped off the bleachers, ran to the fence and hollered at him to quit putting sand in his pants. He got up to bat and ran around the bases with a sagging bum. When he came out to talk to me he was playing with a rock. I put two and two together, he had that BOULDER in his pocket the whole game! His coach caught him playing with it earlier in the night and had thrown it out of his reach. Apparently Kai decided he must have this treasure for himself. He was so proud of himself for thinking he pulled a fast one on coach and mom!!

We had team snacks on Friday night and Kaden was insistent that he help pass the snacks out to the team.
