(I know it’s been a while. Too much going on and I never have time to sit and write stuff down. Plus my laptop is on its last legs so I don’t want to deal with it.)
Halloween is tomorrow. Mia is going to be Ana from Frozen. I was trying to discourage Frozen anything but I will be the fourth year of Frozen mania so I succumbed. Plus the costume was 25% off at the Disney Store and I can’t resist a sale. Diego is going to be a ninja. He loves it because he can cover his face and be a true ninja (plus he has some nun chucks).
Mia is still a Daisy. She loves it. Always looks forward to the meetings. And I am willing participant. I am the birthday mom this year. The gift is a tote bag painted with the daisy flower and personalized with their name and troop number. It takes about three days (about 8 hrs total time) to paint each one. Plus they get some hair ties that I had made last year but never got around to giving the out and a birthday month patch. It’s lots of work but I know Mia loves it.
Diego is still playing soccer. He is playing for the Chicago Magic PSG since February of this year. He had lost some spark playing with Chicago Fire. We had been talking about finding a new team for a couple of months and we knew of a couple of kids that had moved to Magic as well and were happy. Once we made the change, it was like the spark reignited for Diego. So so so happy we made the move.
I’m sure there is more but I’ll stop now. I’ll try to post a Halloween picture tomorrow. Please cross fingers that it won’t rain.
