New Beginnings

Summer can officially leave now.

School has started--my Chunky is now a 4th grader!

Check it! "Irene" damage!

Kiddie football season also officially begins on Sunday. I'm very excited!!

Chunky's the kid on the red-shirted team squatting like he's taking a crap in the woods.

Mr. Mooch is back at daycare after a summer home with Dr. Mad Scientist and Chunky.

Imagine I have a picture of him there. What can I say? It's been a rough adjustment for him leaving his beloved big brother in the morning to learn about cookies all day.

Seriously, I picked him up yesterday and asked him what he learned about at school and that was the answer the gave me -- "cookies!"

Dr. Mad Scientist is getting into a groove at his new school which is run by administrators infinitely more adept at running a school and school district than Newark Public Schools could ever dream of.

This is a view of the back of his classroom. I had him take pictures for me so I could help advise him how to decorate it. I love this shot because the "acid" cabinet is locked up tight, but hey, we'll just leave the blow torches out for teenager to mess with!

And for me, it's pretty much the same old crap at work day in and day out.

However, I am working on a beginning of sorts that will eventually effect us all.


Number 3 graces us with his (ok, so I can't confirm that pronoun, but who am I kidding? With our luck, it's another boy) presence at the end of March.

Don't say I never tell you anything.

Hey, congratulations! On all the new beginnings, of course, but particularly the one that comes with a sonogram. How exciting!

:-))) Congrats on everything new - new school year, new school, and new little one! That's always the best kind of news. Don't give up hope on the double X chromosome just yet - I have family friends back home who had four boys, then a girl... you just never know ;)

I don't know if this is the first you've announced it, but wunderschön!! And congrats!

BTW, will Dr Mad Scientist have a cabinet that says, "BASE" next to the Acid one??

Wooooohooooooo!! Congratulations! Such exciting news about the baby! Oh! Wouldn't it be fun if it was a girl?!

And dude, Chunky looks like he knows what he's doing! Just promise me if it comes down to a scholarship between Notre Dame and Michigan, that he'll choose the Irish!

Wow, all sorts of new beginnings your household!

I'm glad you let us know in advance this time about the baby to be - how exciting!!! I'll keep my fingers crossed that Chunky and Moochie get a little sister!

I love knitting and sewing baby stuff, but there's no more babies in my future, so now I have an excuse to make a few things. ; )

P.S. I went to elementary school with a family who had 5 girls, and then number 6 ended up being a boy. So, I'll bet there's hope for you to have a girl yet! : )

Congratulations on everything! Hope Dr MS has a MUCH better experience at this school. My school is in dire need of three science teachers this year, so if he knows anybody who wants to decamp for warmer climates, send 'em this way! I mean, shoot, it's been 5 years since our last hurricane!

Bet you anything it's a girl. It's time to bring balance to the Force in that house of yours. And one day, when you have grand children, you can sit them on your knee and tell them the tale of Zorba the Sadistic Landlord of Squirrel Gables. And the River of Poo in your basement. And of Shakira the cockroach. And the wonder of the Bezzie O'Lantern. Not many people have such a rich heritage to bestow upon their kids, you lucky ducky...

And congratulations on the new addition! That's the most exciting new thing of all.
