Quote of the Day

Every year since we moved here, I have helped out with VBS. All of the local churches get together and put it on at one time. It is a pretty neat set up, and I figure that I am the perfect volunteer since I am available and I have no kids of my own. I always sign up to help with the little kids, the 4 year olds to 1st graders. It is a nice change of pace from high school students. They love you as a teacher and that is nice.

This year I am with the kindergardeners. They are the biggest class with 35 kids and probably the class with the most energy. Today for snack we had Tonka Truck Fruit Snacks. I just had to laugh when I heard one of the kids say to another, "This is the best food I have ever had in my life!"

Amazing what will change your life when you are six.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
