Project 365 {week 40}

WEEK 40?!?!


This means there are only 12 more weeks left in 2012. Yeah. I know.


September 30: when did he turn 12? Seriously.

October 1: My first Students of the Month board is “live”. Not bad for my first time.

October 2: Sums up the day: sweet with a side of annoyance.

October 3: First time bathing together. They loved it.

October 4: Brothers playing together

October 5: My boys come to my school for the homecoming football game.

October 6: Baby shower for my sister-in-law Sarah and her baby girl, Maria

Somewhere in this week I also broke down.

And as usual, my boys put those pieces together with school glue and glitter and hugs and kisses.

And then this supposed kidney stone pain showed back up this weekend.

I have doubts about this “guess” of a diagnosis, so I will probably be calling my doc on Monday.

Just because I like some medical reassurance rather than guesses.

So we move on to the next week.

And hope for good things and good news.

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. The shower looked like fun!

    Boo for possible kidney stone. Hope you’re all better for next week.

  2. Your boys are just too adorable. I love that picture of Eddie looking all serious and introspective. Get such a kick out of seeing Charlie get bigger and bigger each and every day. Love following you on Instagram! 🙂 Have a great day.

  3. Hopefully they get this kidney business in order.
    Be thankful that you don’t live in Canada.
    Glitter is made from the devil’s farts. You can’t get that shit out of your house for years.
    Can I eat your children?

  4. Oh silly, silly girl… don’t you know that medicine is just one big guess. 😉

  5. Certainly hoping for good news that discounts Google guesses/diagnoses BUT also rolling my eyes at you that that car seat is so clean.

  6. Zoinks is right! The end of this year is FLYING by.

    Fun pics.
