As of today, we are eliminating certain foods from Noah's diet one at a time to figure out what is causing his tummy to hurt and then have diarrhea every time he eats. Milk is the first one to go. He is missing his chocolate milk, but after explaining what we are doing, he is willing to cooperate. Tonight, he asked if hot dogs have milk in them. I hope we figure out what is bothering him soon.
On the way to school this morning, Kate wondered how she would get to the place to buy a car when she didn't have a car to drive (an interesting topic for a Kindergartener to be thinking about on the way to school!). I told her that I would drive her to the car place and she was happy that she wouldn't have to take a taxi. Noah in his sweet 4 year old voice said, "Kate, what is a taxi?" She told him in her 5 year old way, which was so cute!
Matt, Emily & I met with two of Emily's teachers (Mrs. Cooper & Ms. Merriam) this evening for Emily's goal setting conference. Emily is off to a great start, as usual. :-) Her teachers described her as an intelligent, quiet leader who is able to help her classmates in a nice, gentle way. She continues to devour books and it hasn't taken her teachers long to realize this. They will continue to challenge Emily in all areas and they will continue to enjoy her. :-)
