My baby, er, um, my big boy turns 5!


I just absolutely love that picture!!

I can't believe it. My baby, my youngest little bean is now a big kid of 5 years old! I'm so happy for him, but so sad for me at the same time.

His thing lately is to raise his fist in the air and yell, YES!! if he's excited or happy about something. He is such a joy to be around, always happy, smiley and good natured (except when he gets sent back to home when we play "bubble" Trouble!)

When I asked what kind of cake and ice cream he wanted he informed me very quickly, I might add, that he wanted CHOCOLATE everything. No problem, son, I can accommodate that request!

A perfect shot of him blowing out the candles! (snff, sniff. I'm gonna go cry now...)

We had a great day with great people, food and gifts! Grandma Jan & Grandpa Dave came over, as well as Aunt Ruth and Uncle Chris. Aunt Chantel and Bracken came down from Delta and spent a few days, so that was really fun! Thanks to those of you who made it, we are so glad you could come!

Thankful Thursday

I have been meaning to join in on Thankful Thursday for a while now and finally remembered on Thursday! I should start getting posts ready before hand and schedule them to post on Thursdays!

This week I am thankful for this cutie who is 5 YEARS OLD!! (but still my baby)

Gonna go do a post about his birthday party tonight!

SEP's aka Parent-Teacher Conferences

It really annoys Rob that they call Parent/Teacher Conferences Sep's now. I think it's funny how annoyed he is about it. Anyway. this week Jordyn and Max both get out of school at 1 :15 everyday and yesterday we went to their meetings. They are both doing well. Jordyn got x's or +'s in all of her area's. Basically that means A's and B's. She is reading above level and gets along well with her classmates.

Max is also doing well. I was really worried about his reading at the beginning of the year, but he went into Reading Recovery (which he LOVED) and it helped him so much. He is now reading on grade level, when before he was below grade level. The only issue his teacher (and I) seem to have is he needs to sloooow down and think about what he is doing. Sometimes he doesn't comprehend what he's reading, because he is reading to fast. Also, his handwriting could be better, but that also goes along with slowing down! But, that kid has always been on the move. He does really well in math, he gets almost 100% on all of his tests. I'd like to say he gets that from his mom, but I don't think so, that's his dad's genes.

It's been nice having the kids home early this week. Next month we have spring break, I'm really looking forward to that. Yay, I'll get to sleep in!

Blasts from the past

I am using Rob's laptop because mine decided it needed a new hard drive. All the pictures that are on this computer are pretty old and I've been having fun looking at them, so I thought I'd share a few....
So Sweet!

Great Grandpa Max and our Max!

Jordyn and Si

Si at Sand Hollow Lake. Look how clear the water is!

She used to put all the washcloths on her head and wear them around the house like hats!
Silly girl :P
