Monthly Newsletter #70

Dear Landon,

This month has been full of adventures for you.  You started off the month with Grandma and Grandpa Logan.  You spent the week with them while Mike and I went on a cruise.  Then we got you back and took you back to New Braunfels.  We stopped at a train diner, which was…well, it’s where a horror movie could have started – purely based on the patrons. 

We took you for your first trip to Gruene Hall. 

And we went to the San Antonio Zoo.

Your daddy took you to get a Mohawk you’d been asking for, and to be honest, I am not fond of it.  We have a countdown in the kitchen to when it goes.  I will not have you meeting your teacher with a Mohawk.  Whether she thinks you’re a punk or I am, it’s not the first impression I want to make on a woman who will have you most of your waking hours during the week.

We had Zoey’s birthday party.

You then spent a week with Grandma and Grandpa Wood.  Actually I’m pretty sure this month I was without you more than I was with you.  That’ll change here when school starts though.

You’ve been having some trepidation about Kindergarten.  I don’t know what they’re telling you at your Day Care, but I think they’re trying to sell you on their private Kindergarten.  I hate to be the one to break it to you, but it’s not happening!  For one thing $800/month for Kindergarten, when I can send you to public school where it’s free (er, I already pay the taxes that pay for it), just doesn’t make logical sense.  Second, eventually you’re going to go to that school, you might as well start now and get to know the kids who will be in your class for the rest of your time there.  And third, it was a pain in the butt to get you registered, I’m not letting all that energy go to waste.  So, suck it up, change is hard, but you can do it and you will be fine.
