It's Monday, and I'm joining back up with the Monday Coffee Morning with Molly at The Move to America for her weekly link-up. It's a good way to evaluate the last week and look forward to the new week, stop on by her blog and see what she and the other bloggers are up to this week!
Last week, we took Little Man to the doctor to get his consistent cough and wheeze checked out. It went well, and he's on a temporary steroid inhaler through the rest of this week to see what that does for his cough. We've already scheduled a follow up appointment for two weeks from now, so then we'll find out if that's it for now or if we take the next step and go to a pediatrician for an asthma test. But for now, it seems like it's working, so I'll take it.
I've also finally completed Little Man's school forms for personality and physical/cognitive development, which is a relief. As long as they can look past my terrible Dutch spelling and grammar in the "comments sections," I think we'll be fine.
This week, I'd like to do a few projects with the Little Man before he starts school. We've been working on a "color" scrap book - it's a good combination of learning about colors and making a keepsake together. We have the name of each color in English and Dutch, pictures of Little Man wearing a shirt of each color, pictures of his toys that are that color, a description from him about each color. We're about a third of the way through (we've covered red, orange, and yellow), but I need to get some more photos printed up so that we can finish it. I want to finish it before he starts kleuterschool, so I'm getting down to crunch time.
We're also going to start baking. I bought the "value" bag of apples a week and a half ago, and before they start going squishy, we're going to make some apple cinnamon bread. I also need to clear out the apples before we do zelf-pluk (self-pick), which may happen this coming weekend providing all my schemes work out.
And for my own project, I need to get the legs on my first "official" dino and start the second. Little Man has been playing with the "practice" dino, and it's holding up well to little-boy-play-time, which is exactly what I need these guys to do. So far, I'm pretty pleased with myself, and I'm excited to get started on the second one.
Here's to the week and any projects you have!
