This Week in 3rd Grade

It’s been two weeks since I posted because last weekend Jason and I went out of town to the Shawshank Reunion Anniversary events.  I posted some pics on FB and IG so I won’t post again, but it was a really fun time.  When we got home I took Gage to a back to school breakfast at the church down the street and then we met friends at the Wizard of Oz musical at a local college.  I’m looking forward to a quieter weekend!

Highlights of the week…Before Gage started 1st grade I took him on a cruise along the Cuyahoga River and a bit of Lake Erie and told him we should make it a yearly thing.  He’s held me to it and last year and this year we invited Dad and Grandma too.  I leave them alone for 10 minutes and this is what Jason has done to his hair.  The first day of school went well and he’s a fan of his new teachers.

Could’ve been better…I’m not sleeping well.  As I mentioned in an earlier post, Gage will get a 72 hour video EEG in September.  The doctor recommended that I continue sleeping in the same room with him.  So, the last 3+ weeks Gage has moved into our bed and real sleep is elusive.  The first week was fine, but the 3-5 hours of sleep is starting to wear on me.  I’m not 25 anymore!

On the big screen…Once Upon a Time in Hollywood poster.pngI’m no Quentin Tarantino fan, but this was so different.  I actually thought it was boring some of the time, not something I’ve ever said about a Tarantino film.  Obviously this was Jason’s pick.

On the small screen…This week we received $5 cash in the mail from Nielsen telling us that they were interested in talking to us about becoming a Nielsen family.  Jason and I are still laughing.  Four nights this week for a total of four episodes of Justified on Amazon Prime.  That’s it.  Gage has watched a few episodes on Spongebob and that has been the total of our household TV viewing.  I’m not sure we’re Nielsen material but I appreciate the $5.

Plans for the weekend…We have a few good options for Sunday, but will most likely go with Big Bounce America for Gage.
