I am going to do a quick run down / outline / scrabbled thoughts of what we have been up to lately.
Last week I started my next eight week session of my boot camp fitness class. I go on Wednesday and Friday mornings at 6:00am. I am kicking myself in the butt for not signing up for the Monday morning 5:00am class, because while I don't mind going to the gym I really enjoy these classes. They are
T*Y*N*E ~ two words / KINDERGARTEN SCREENING!! We went last week for her screening. I can't believe that we are preparing for school. She is so excited - It just really has snuck up on me. I can vividly remember preparing for pre-school and taking her pacifier away now kindergarten is HERE! She did very well on her screening. The screening took about 30 minutes or so. While she did her screening, I filled out the paper work. Teacher request forms, bus information, summer school stuff. We put in our teacher request. This is so hard, because all students learn different and I got recommendations from other moms, but while no two students are alike I made a request based on gut feelings. We hope Tyne gets our pick. Her screening went well after she was thru the teacher came out and went thru her results. She scored at average or above average in all tests. (Yeah for super smart kiddos) However one of her above average scores was on her logic and reasoning abilities. I could have told them that. Tyners clearly thinks thru her decisions and why she is making those decisions. Which is a good thing, but don't let her fool you - she can reason you in the ground when it comes to cleaning and doing other things. T-Ball will be starting soon and this could prove to be a challenge for both her and her daddy. Todd is going to be the head coach with the assistance of a few other dads. Todd is just a
T-Bone (aka Truman) - our little fella turned 9 months on the 22nd of March. He is just so full of life and energy. He has not quite figured out how to crawl, like hands and knees crawl. He still gets where he needs to go (quick, fast and in a hurry)but we just have to make sure he has a shirt on or his belly gets carpet burn! He is super curious of his surroundings and is keeping my on my toes with keeping the floor cleaned. Anything found on the floor goes straight to his mouth. (Tyne was NOT like this) Please don't tell our pediatrician but with his two teeth he will pretty much eat anything you give him. He loves meat loaf and mashed potatoes. He can eat a whole pancake without blinking an eye and continues to amaze us how pureed baby food doesn't stick to his ribs very long. While at one point we were nervous that weaning him off his bottle would pose a much greater challenge than Tyne - with all the new tastes we have to work to make sure he is getting an adequate amount of formula on a daily basis. His progress with the sippy cup is coming along nicely ~ and his spitting of the water back out is just as lovely :-) Ha! He is mastering the skill of waving hi and bye and it really is super cute! He will try so hard to imitate saying bye bye. While I thought he would be my super cute chunky baby as he gets bigger and moves around more he just seems to be thinning out :-( Except for his feet. The kid has baked potato shaped feet with little nubs on the end. He still has a head full of hair and cute squeezable cheeks. It won't be long until the big first birthday and don't think that I am not already putting plans in place, because I am! That's my OCD coming out :-)
My better half is staying super busy mowing and working out at the farm. I so hope one day (SOON) we are able to live out there. He spends so much time that it will be so much more convenient and I am so ready for my kids to be able to enjoy the outdoors and have more space to explore ~
We are so excited for the summer and can't wait to take our "new to us" boat out that we bought back in January.
Wheewwwww what an update ~ if you are reading well thanks, I am sorry that it is so long...well no I am not. This is my only way to keep track of my kids since I am not a scrapbooker.
I am promising to myself to keep up a little better from this point forward!
