I got to go eat lunch with my two favorite second graders last week. We got kicked off the peanut-free lunch table because I brought food in from a restaurant. So we had to sit at a back table. Moose invited a little girl to eat with us. He told me the day before that she didn't believe that he was adopted. So we had a little conversation about adoption with Molly, and now she knows that the twins are truly adopted.
He also told a lady he met at a birthday party that he was adopted. This is something that we have talked about a lot. So I am really not sure why he is telling people all of a sudden. I think he likes to be different and share his differences with other people.
Here is another letter we got Dalton this week. This time it was for the whole family. I just love his letters! For a class project, he sent a Flat Stanley to his sister in Colorado. I am sure his letter to her and Garret was awesome!
And I decided to show everyone the giant green pepper that I bought. I love red and yellow peppers, but if they are not on sale, I don't buy them. Walmart had green peppers for 68 cents, and they were giant. I hope it tastes as good as it looks.
I lost one pound at my weigh-in on Friday. Three more weeks and the contest is over! I have lost a total of 18 pounds in 5 weeks, and I am really craving chocolate and ice cream. I took the boys to Culvers for lunch today, and they all got ice cream after they ate. I kept wanting to get just one spoonful, but I resisted. Hopefully it will pay off on Friday!!
