Are we going about this all wrong...

Chad had built a small dog pen for Shelby, our lab/hound. This would allow the kids to play in the yard without her jumping all over them. Logan had other ideas. He wanted to play in the pen while Shelby played in the yard.

A Happy Note

Logan has been having trouble at school with his behavior. He loves to talk and has trouble keeping his mouth closed during class and lunch. I received the infamous call from his teacher stating she did not know what to do with him. He was disrupting class. Chad and I both met with her at conference and heard the same thing. We have had a come to Jesus meeting with Logan explaining he has to follow the rules at school. We no longer watch tv during the week and eat dinner together at the table every night. I hope we find the answer somewhere. After a stressful week, I was happy to see the note above in his backpack.

Logan's Birthday Party

Logan had a great time at his birthday party. He was thrilled that several of his school and church friends were able to come celebrate with him. We had pizza and a bounce around with a Toy Story theme. Thanks to everyone who made his day special.

Laney's 4 Year Old Check Up

Laney had her 4 year old check up last week. We were a little late since she has been sick and we had to reschedule. She is still at the top of the growth charts for her age. She is 40.5 inches tall and 44 lbs. She had to get 4 shots and barely cried. She is a tough little girl. I thought I would take this time to update on her latest skills.

Motor Skills: Hopping, Skipping, and dribbling the basketball. She wants to take gymnastics or dance so that will be our next adventure.

Academics: She just learned to write her name and is learning to recognize simple sight words. She can't wait to read like her brother.

Favorite Foods: Lucky Charms, Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches, Chick-n-minis, and mints

Favorite Drink: Sweet Tea or Milk

Not so crazy about: turtlenecks, Shelby (the new dog), or having the tangles combed out of her hair

A new Driver in the Family..

Yes he already drives better than his mother. I am still terrified to drive go carts. I am glad he did not inherit my phobia.
