one of the things van was most excited about with the move, was that he gets to ride the bus to school now. even better for me- the bus stop is right up the street. i can stand on my front porch and see him off in the morning, and just poke my head out the door to see when the bus gets there in the afternoon. so easy.
so after his first bus ride home, he told me that the bus driver was calling him “Ban”. people mistake his name for “Ben” all the time so i didn’t think much of it. the next morning i walked with him to the bus stop just to clear up any confusion. when the doors opened and i saw the latin bus driver, i knew right away what the deal was but went on with my explanation anyway. “this is Van” i said, and i spelled it out, “V-a-n.”
“yeah.” the bus driver said. “Ban.”
“alright, as long as you know,” i smiled to myself, as i turned around and walked home.
after 3 weeks of “any day now”, we finally closed last night! we don’t even have our beds yet, but that wasn’t stopping us from packing up our necessities and unlocking the front door to our brand new house! we picked up some wendy’s for dinner, and the kids played around until bedtime. it was the best night’s sleep i’ve ever had on the floor in my life.
- mia has got to be the most delicious baby ever!
- van lost his tooth at school and got to keep it in a tooth shaped container around his neck all day. some kid in his class told him that the tooth fairy is really just your parents (little punk). i told him that the tooth fairy only comes to good kids, so dylan must not be a very good kid.
- “zane” dying was more traumatic for jasmine than when edward left bella. wow.
- our puke roll tasted so good! suely had this magazine with the recipe, but we didn’t really have any of the ingredients except for the crescent rolls. so we decided to do something with chicken. then we added some sour cream, cream of chicken soup, green onions, eggs, cheese, cream cheese, salt and pepper, but it was missing something. hey, here’s a can of corn do you think that would be good? sure. got any broccoli? nope, but here’s a can of spinach. ok throw it in. how bout some some parmesean cheese? yeah why not?
we couldn’t think of anything else to add, so we stuck it in the oven at 375 for 30 minutes, and it came out tasting delicious. it was pretty dang funny.
guess you had to be there:)
