Last week was a busy one. We had stuff to do, places to go, projects to work on, Valentine's to make and dogs to care for.
Ginger got knocked out on Monday morning to have her teeth cleaned, vaccinations given, nails clipped and a skin tag on her eye removed. She was still a little tired from the anesthesia when she came home. The shaved spots on her legs are from the IVs.
They also shaved around her eye for the skin tag.
Elliott looked so cute in Spencer's hand-me-down Spiderman jeans on Tuesday. I made him do a fashion show.
Spencer had early release from school on Wednesday. He got home at 11:45 and we immediately loaded up and headed for lunch at TC Eggingtons in Mesa. It was Spencer's special request.
Then we went to the Museum of Natural History. We haven't been since before Christmas. Nothing has changed. Except nobody was there, which was really nice.
We worked on Spencer's Valentine's on Wednesday.
I gave him several pinterest options and he went with chips for his classmates,
and soap for his teachers (including specials teachers and the principal.). Elliott picked soap for his teachers too. There is no separate picture.
I got to go on a field trip with all the special education kids at work on Thursday. I love billing for field trips. They are the best days. I took a picture of myself on the bus and texted it to Michael to say, look at what I'm doing with my work day.
I also like how the shadow of my nose is HUGE. Seriously, I need shadow rhinoplasty.
We took the kids to the IMAX theater. These kids are on my caseload but I didn't edit the pictures because they're so dark to begin with I can barely tell who these kids are.
We worked on Elliott's Valentine's on Thursday evening. He picked goldfish for his classmates.
We also worked on a big 2nd grade President's Day project all week. It was a "folder" assignment with specific criteria for each part of the folder. Spencer chose Theodore Roosevelt. He turned it in on Friday. I was ever so glad to send these kids off to school with their projects and Valentine's. That type of stuff is just exhausting.
Oh, I forgot. We also realized, on Friday morning, that Elliott had cut his own hair at some point last week. It was very hard to photograph, but he has bald spots all over the back of his head.
I guess cutting your own hair is tiring, because Elliott took a glorious nap that afternoon. I was at work. This is the 2nd of 6 pictures Michael will take in 2016. He'll take another probably in July.
