Comments for A Long Day for Sean

Sean on the CouchA Long Day for Sean: 10/03/06

Sean started at his new school (same teachers, new location) and was so excited by events that he forgot to take a nap a school. While he can sometimes get away without napping, yesterday was not one of those days. Shortly after getting home, he ended up taking an impromptu nap in his bed for three hours. We normally would have just tucked him in and let him sleep but his bed had needed changing and we hadn't put new sheets on it after stripping it in the morning. Sean had just done a quick tuck in under one of his comforters as if he were a cowboy wrapped up in his horse blanket.

Sean finally woke around ten but wasn't up for a real dinner. He's never much of a dinner eater and a heavy meal of brisket just didn't sound good. He opted for some yogurt and a glass of milk instead. He watched half an episode of Remington Steele before heading back to bed.

The new school has a pair of goats and they were part of the excitement. They are both females but I don't know their names yet. I have photographs of them but my camera ran out of batteries and I have to wait until the batteries recharge before I can post the photographs. I hope to do the posting later today or tomorrow depending on the batteries and my available time.
