Happy Gotcha Day Charlie

Hard to believe that six years ago on 10/6 we arrived home from Korea with Charlie. He's all over this Gotcha Day event. He started off by telling his classmates that it's a day where he gets presents ... huh! Who wouldn't want to have a gotcha day. He then ... with my coaching ... told his classmates that it was the day he met his mom and dad and left American. Huh! I'm sure the teachers really scratching her head by now. So this morning, I told him ... if they ask ... it's the day our family celebrates adoption. Can you hear it now .... What's Adoption? Well good news is his teachers going on +30 years ... she can deal with this.

Charlie does have a way of bending the stories. He told his class that after Christmas we were moving to some place colder ... huh! Translate, we are skiing in Steamboat for a week sometime after the Christmas Holiday.

Jet is totally into the Gotcha Day events too. I'm letting him skip soccer practice! He deserves it ... he played in 3 tournament games this last weekend, two practices last week and has two more games this weekend. I mean goodness ... do the professionals play this much!!!
So Jet being Jet and Charlie following suit tried to parlay this day into a day off of school. HA! Nice Try!
