It’s been forever since I’ve gotten a chance to post anything about our finds. We haven’t really been thrifting on Wednesday’s as I originally wanted. But our schedule has been WAY crazy that even I don’t want to leave my house on Wednesdays.
Since soccer season officially started a couple of weeks ago for Ethan, and Enzo in speech therapy, there’s not too much time left in between driving. Check out our schedule…could be worse, so I’m not complaining.
11:30 – Ethan’s PE
2:30 – Enzo’s speech therapy
3:30 – Ethan’s drum lessons
6:00 – Ethan’s soccer practice
Ethan goes to piano lessons but I don’t have to take him.
11:00 – Enzo’s speech therapy
6:00 – Ethan’s soccer practice
8:00 – Ethan’s soccer games (what were they thinking scheduling at 8am!??!!?)
Schedule isn’t too bad compared to other ppl, but this is our fixed schedule. So anything life throws in between is added to this…for some reason tho, October is a crazy month. Seems like every week in October we have some kind of additional appt for Enzo. Hearing test, ESE evaluation meeting, WIC (not really required, but part of his adoption subsidy. When God blesses, he pours right? eheh).
So Wednesday hunting for me and Enzo has been pretty much put on hold. HOWEVER, hehehe the past several weeks we’ve been out hunting in between appts and errands. I’ve even got a new antiquing buddy! Ethan! He loves this one antique store because its soo huge but you don’t realize it until you find the little ‘secret’ passage ways. Not really secret, but took me 2 visits before I realized it was even there.
Ethan’s always been…hmm…not your typical kid. He loves looking at the old stuff and has even started his own mini collection. He likes the little stuff…and he’s good at finding a good bargain. Like this week, we’ve been out 2 days. I gave him $3 (yes I know it’s not much, but he’s spoiled everywhere else) and he bought himself several items! He got this antique cargo train, a cigar box (not sure why, but that’s his second…he likes to put little stuff in it), a couple of old locks, super old horn (trumpet i think?) and this little book with a slot for a picture on the front. All under $4 coz of tax and stuff (so he went over just a tiny bit his $3 budget, but like I said, he’s spoiled everywhere else).
Oh and he loves estate sales! He thinks its the coolest thing to walk around someone’s house and everything in it be up for grabs. He loves old houses and wants us to buy an old house in this little historic district in Jacksonville. He was so disappointed when we didn’t make it to this one retirement home that was holding a garage sale. He figured old ppl meant old things. Good logic, but he was so disappointed we couldn’t make it. But then a trip to his new favorite antique store fixed it. And NO my son is not turning gay. He just hangs with mommy too much So what if he wants to learn how to sew and insists on taking a sewing class with his cousin….heheh don’t ask, that’s another blog for another day…God has definitely blessed me with 2 of the cutest and funniest boys….
And in the middle of this crazy schedule and antiquing Ethan and I have been doing, Enzo is right there with us! He’s perfectly content in the sling. So I just stick him in my sling, and off we go…I think he’s starting to get too heavy for my sling tho…
Oh yeah, last week God shut some doors. But we’re definitely ok with it. PEACE. With shut doors, come open windows….so with that said. Pray once again. Can’t wait to see what God has in store for us…
So much more to tell but I’m so so tired. I need sleep, we have a soccer game in the morning. So till next time…
