We love our new house..
If you do not believe me I invite you to sit in my car and listen to a typical conversation as we pull in the driveway..
"I love YELLOW HOUSE. Our house is YELLOW. We don''t live in the WHITE HOUSE, that is our old house. HI YELLOW HOUSE.. We missed you. We love YELLOW HOUSE.."
We do love this house. August went by really fast. Here''s a quick recap..
Nicole.. First day of 7th grade. New kid in school. Christopher had REALLY bad case of Mono and couldn''t be there for the first day, but he''s almost all better and has returned to school. They are in the same school & same grade but different classes. Cole likes school and has made a few friends.
Emily... We signed her up for Soccer, she loves the first 25 minutes. After that it''s a bit of a fight to complete the hour long game. New Pre-school started today, 3 days a week with speech 2x''s a week. Marybeth is her new speech teacher, and if I wasn''t already taken, I might propose to her. She''s open to tracking Emily''s progress, she doesn''t think I''m crazy, and she will admit that sometimes she can''t understand Emily either..
Skippy.. Ever see the show Man vs.Wild?
This is how Aiden views EVERY day. He starts talking, moving, jumping and running the moment he wakes up.
"Hi Mama.. Where''s Dada? At work. Up. Apple Juice. I''m a BOY. Jump! Frog.. Ribbit.. Ribbit. EMWEEE(Emily)WHERE ARE YOU?" all this is BEFORE he gets out of bed.
He is constantly in motion. His new speech teacher is Jessica. The poor girl. She''s a tiny little thing and I''m afraid he''s going to hurt her with his ENTHUSIASM.
He has almost broken my nose twice and has brought Dan to his knees by throwing the ball at his "man parts".. He is a force of nature.
The Black and Whites on the home page are the most recent pictures. A few weeks ago I forced them all to amuse me and just smile. My computer and my camera are having a lover''s quarrel, and are refusing to communicate. I have about 50 pictures I can''t get off the camera. Time for the Geek Squad to help.
I''m off to the NASCAR races this weekend..
See you all soon!
Ps.. I was able to upload a video of storytime with Emily. At the top of the page click VIDEO and it''s the one labled.. Once upon a time..
