It’s homecoming week at school which has been so fun dressing Carver up! Thursday was Glitz and Glam vs. Grunge day and Carver opted for glitz and glam! He’s wearing a birthday ribbon because they didn’t have preschool on his birthday.

Back when I was in school, we would bring treats and usually my mom would make cinnamon rolls. Now, there are plenty of rules and regulations and kids are encouraged to bring a toy or a knick knack to share with the class. Carver opted to bring his classmates slinkies that we got at the dollar tree and he had so much fun handing them out to his classmates.

So while Carver was at school, mom and Gannon and I went north to go garage saleing. We didn’t have much luck but then we decided to stop at a bakery we haven’t tried yet – Dough and Joe’s (get it, dough and joe, doughnuts and coffee). I have had their doughnuts before when people have brought them to work and they are SO GOOD!

That powdered sugar one in the middles was all for me! The ladies who were working there were SO friendly and patient and made me the most delicious iced vanilla decaf latte! It was such a fun environment and I could tell they enjoyed their jobs.

Gannon did find this pink tractor at a garage sale and we couldn’t leave without it or go into any sale after that without it.

By the time we got home from garage saleing it was naptime for me and my Gan-man. I nap with him on the nights before I go to work and wake up in time to help Carver off of the bus.

Gannon is hitting his terrible twos a little ahead of schedule. This past week he has been moody and throwing a lot of tantrums and fits – making his desires known that’s for sure. That and ANOTHER ear infection was found at his well child check so he’s on his way to getting his second set of tubes.

That was our Thursday! I’m on a bit of a work stretch right now – the exact kind of work stretch that I’m looking forward to not having once I reduce my hours in December 🙂 In the meantime, making that money to keep paying on the bathroom remodel!

    Poor Gannon! I hate ear infections for him! My son had three sets of tubes and then finally had a permanent set put in.
    Those donuts look superb!
