We planted a tree today in honor of Matt's brother Keith. He is missed very much!

Grace's First Day of Kindergarten 2011

This is one year ago on the Grace's first day of Kindergarten. Looking at these pictures I can't believe how young the kids look and how I look at the house and the street and if feels like ages ago that we lived there. It seems like a different life.

Evan's Preschool Graduation - June 2012

Evan graduated from Pre-K in June and we are all so proud of him! He was so proud of himself, and just loved having his Grammie and PopPop there!

One Liners

Hi! Oh how I have been neglecting my blog!!!! And since I have very little time right now, as usual, I am going to give a few updates in one liners (or maybe two)!

  • I just sat through Kindergarten registration yesterday and I cried when I got into my car. 
  • I had a conference with Grace's teacher yesterday and Grace is doing excellent! I'm so proud of that kid!
  • Madeline is very intense and into her letters and letter sounds, she wants so much to read like her big sister can. 
  • Leah is starting to show her artistic side more and more, I adore the pictures that she draws and paints. She's just so proud of herself and I'm so proud of her!
  • We are making progress with the house, not as fast as I would like but with everything we have going on we're doing the best we can. 
  • I cannot wait to repaint (or replace) the front door and garage door. I really really can't wait until we replace the deck! 
  • I'm loving that the weather is warm enough for us to take walks and we have met a lot of great people in the neighborhood. I can't wait to relax on the back deck with friends while we watch our kids play in the yard!!
  • I'm looking forward to the end of the school year ~ the freedom to pack up and take trips whenever Matt has a few days off will be great!
  • My baby boy turns 5 in one week from today. It breaks my heart to see the kids grow up so fast. They're only young once....  :-(

March? March!!

I cannot believe that it's March already. My baby boy will turn FIVE in less than a month. I got his Kindergarten registration packet in the mail and cried, just like I did with Grace. I'm going to lose my mind when Madeline and Leah start Kindergarten. Evan just seems so young. Evan doesn't want to go to Kindergarten he says. I'm scared of the first day of school!

Grace is reading like a pro. I'm constantly amazed by her. She just loves school, she's upset that she doesn't have school on Friday for a teacher in-service day!
