Family (Tata, Papa, Robbie, Jill, and David) came over to visit today. Alan showed off his Tinker Toy propeller plane that he designed this weekend. And he also got to play his new Cars 3 matching game with Jill! Alan’s getting pretty good at it.
To Alan’s delight, fall weekends this year have been following a similar formula to last year.
Friday nights again involve parties with me. Saturday afternoons involve music lessons at the Musical Settlement and Chinese & Martial Arts class at the Cleveland Public Library. Best of all, Saturday nights involve visits to see Tyler and Carleigh and sleepovers at Grandma Debbie’s house!
Sundays can include trips to the Wildcat Fitness Center to practice basketball, visits to see Tata & Papa, or playing “Go Fish,” the Cars 3 Memory Game, or fidget spinner battles with Daddy.
On Monday mornings at school Alan has to write in his journal about what he did over the weekend. Alan said that he enjoys writing about playing with Tyler the most. 🙂
(Pictured is a Chinese lantern craft that Alan made for his Mom).
Alan now has a fidget spinner for each of his favorite teams. After picking up a Cavs spinner at Giant Eagle a couple weeks ago and an Indians spinner at the Tribe game last week, we got OSU and the Browns at Kohl’s this week.
Alan takes his fidget spinners to school and has “fidget battles” with his friends before the morning bell rings. During these battles, each participant spins their spinner and then bangs them into their opponents’ spinner. The person whose spinner stays spinning the longest is declared the winner!
In other news, Alan lost his right front tooth today! The new left one has not grown in all the way yet, so Alan says his mouth feels funny without any front teeth.
