If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Sunday Snapshot- Week 1

It was a good first week of school.  I figure 2 greats and 1 lonely probably equals a good all around week.

Jack got the 1 teacher he was scared of because he had seen her in the hall the year before getting her class in order.  I assured him that a teacher who has firm control of her class is our kind of teacher.  After one week, he completely agrees.  His 2 comments from the week-
1. "I really like math.  I think that is my favorite subject."
2. "I like 3rd grade because we don't have a long recess.  It is too hot out there for recess."

When I found out Sam's teachers name, I texted a friend who used to teach at the school and she replied that Sam's teacher is the same teacher she chose for her daughter. SCORE!

She has been teaching for a long time which is a good thing because I have a feeling Sam will be a bit of a challenge for her.  He made a new friend this week that he says he likes to joke around with.  This same friend got in trouble this week for climbing under the bathroom stall to see if the other boy had Transformers on his underwear too.  Sounds like Sam has met his match.

His favorite part of the day has been P.E.

With the boys gone, Ruthie and I have had extra girl time.  I have tried to entertain her with outings and play dates but every time I stop for a minute to get something done, she looks up at me and so sadly says, "I miss my bubbas."   I think this sweet child is so used to being entertained that she has forgotten how to play by herself.  

Looking forward to seeing what week 2 holds.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! OMG Luke told me the story about the kid crawling under the stall and I thought he was making it up! That is HILARIOUS!!!! Even more funny is that I think that is the son of the teacher that Sophie and Luke has (tee hee) Those kids are so stinkin' cute and funny! Luke said he talked to Sam the other day and he was "funny" I always get the behavior report every day and it cracks me up. It really going to be a great year! Tell Jack not to worry because he has the sweetest teacher ever---promise!
