William's riding a two wheeler!

Our little man, William is riding a two wheeler! He wanted his training wheels fixed since one was bent up pretty badly but I told him we would just teach him to ride without them! He was pretty excited and couldn't sit still enough to eat his lunch because of it. I took him outside, removed the wheels and that was the end of him riding with training wheels. He just took off! William told me later that he had already tried it on Hailey's bike and figured it out! The little sneak! Next we'll teach him how to tie his own shoes but he may already have figured that out too. Who knows with this little man!?!

Our little nursery guy!

This little man is now 18 months and being such is ready for nursery! There is a little problem though, he's scared too death! He clings on mommy and daddy every time we go to the door of the nursery. He cries without even being put on the floor to play in the nursery. The two sisters in the nursery are very nice. He's been babysat more than any of my other children by this age but still refuses going to nursery! We did bring him back in for snack time and let him eat a couple crackers but he was still hanging on me. I hope he gets use to the idea soon but we'll see. It took Taylor a couple months when he was a baby but the others were all for it. Any advice?

Swimming at Grandma's house

My mom went in for surgery on her tailbone on Friday afternoon. It was a in and out kind of surgery but her recovery is around 6 months. When the doctor got in there he was surprised to see she was missing part and the tail bone was split in two going opposite directions! This should make her much more able as she has been dealing with it for a few years now. We went over to their house Saturday afternoon to see how she's coming along and then swim. She's on her way to a slow recovery but it should make her much more able later on. The kids loved swimming! Matthew is a little fishy, he loves the water!

Going to the Fair!

We took the kids over to the county fair on Friday night to see what it was about. They had a family farm exhibit with all kinds of farm animals plus pony rides, cow milking and a little petting zoo area. The kids had a blast playing with all the animals. Taylor struggled a little after riding the pony as his allergies got the best of him but he was still a good sport!

We saw all the carnival rides and thought the kids were old enough to enjoy a few. They loved it! It sure is expensive to ride those rides but they were loving it!

First Day of School 2010

I cannot believe we have started another year of school! Miss Katelyn is starting 4th grade, Taylor is in 2nd and William is thrilled to be starting kindergarten. We took a little tour of the school yesterday to meet teachers and find out where their classes are. They were so excited this morning! No need for alarm clocks on the first day, they complained that we weren't leaving at 7:30 this morning! William hasn't truly began school, it was just meeting his teacher and filling out forms today and tomorrow he'll go in for an assessment. It should be fun! He will officially start on the 18th, I don't think his nerves can handle the anticipation!

This should be a fun year!

Cousin Sleepover

We invited our little cousins to spend the night before school starts. The kids had a blast and really made it a fun night! As you can see they played games, ran around outside, played dress up and watched a movie. I hope we are creating some lasting memories for them!

Our Kitchen is Complete

Well, it's a long time in the making but we finally finished our kitchen up. I really like it! Maybe we could stay in this house for a long time after all. Zack and I have worked our butts off for the past two years making this home ours. There is still plenty of things on the honey do list but it is definitely improving!
