interesting week

I can hardly believe it is Friday already. This has been interesting week. Monday Hannah came home from school saying that she was sad and cried some at school. Tuesday her teacher called to tell me about it. Wednesday I told Hannah I would come and eat lunch with her. When I got there her teacher said that she had cried most of the morning. When I picked her up that afternoon, she had had a good afternoon. So, we talked about it and set up a smiley/sad face system for her. Today she got off the bus crying. So, I dropped my kids off at school and went back to see her. They were just heading into chapel (that was interesting - it's an evangelical school). She was still crying. She did fine thru chapel but when I went to leave was really sobbing. Oh, how that tears a mom's heart up! But when I picked her up this afternoon, she was fine and had a good afternoon. Hopefully this will end soon. I don't know if I can handle much more of it!

On top of that all of us have had the stomach flu this week. Hannah started by having in Labor Day. So, now we've all been thru that. YUCK! Hopefully we're done. This is the first time we have all gotten that together.

So, after all that bad news, here's some good news! On Wednesday Hannah wanted to help with dinner. So she peeled the potatoes for me. This was her first time doing that. I was quite proud of her. She got most of the peels off. We had yummy mashed potatoes and swiss steak.

PRECIOUS!! Letting children help in the kitchen is one of my favorite ... and least-favorite ... things!! :) It's awesome that they want to, and so CUTE! However, as with teaching anyone something, it's always MORE WORK at first before it starts becoming actually helpful, later. lol So sorry to hear you've not been well. And, Hannah's crying...?? Our girlie is super-emotional as well. I wish I had the answers.... Love ya!
