Well…I haven’t written in a while because I haven’t really had much that I had to write about. But I miss writing so I guess I will just catch you up so that you know what’s going on with the Durhams.
Jonas got his report card last week. He got 7 As and 2 Bs. We’re very proud of him. We had a conference with his teacher on Thursday. Jonas’ mother was there as well, and it went very smoothly. Basically, Jonas just needs to pay attention more and goof around less. At the end of every day, Jonas’ teacher gives each student a “rating” in his or her planner. They either get a star for a great job, a straight face guy for a not great, but not awful job, or a frowny face guy. For the first time since school started, Jonas got a full week of stars! He got to put a star on the chart and get a prize for his hard work.
We had a MOPS meeting at the church on Saturday morning that went well. Then I had a Brownie trip to Audubon Park for a hike. That was fun, but loud. If you want to appreciate nature, I don’t recommend that you take a hike with 16 little girls. But I think that they learned a thing or two on our hike, anyway.
Jason and I spent Saturday night eating fajitas and watching TV at home. Things were going well until Jason got a call from working, telling him that they were moving him from first to second shift. We’re not sure what to do about that yet. Jason went this morning and applied for a couple of jobs around town. 2nd shift is 1:00-9:00 p.m. If he works that shift, he’ll never see Jonas. We’re hoping something will work out. With the business he started back in April going so well, we’re blessed that all we really need his “day job” for is the benefits. Pray with us that all will work out!
Yesterday, we had a chili lunch fundraiser at church to raise money for Hurricane relief. We raised almost $1000, which is awesome. We served chili, hotdogs, chips and cookies. We als invited a neighboring church to join us. It was a lot of work for the people who put it together but they did a great job 🙂
Last night, Jason and I played Yahtzee. I beat him three games in a row.
And now it’s Monday and I have some work to do!
