Baby Update

As you can see from the picture, I still haven't had the baby.
I'm scheduled to be induced Sunday morning.
The kids can hardly wait.
The boys have been driving stuffed animals around in the new stroller for practice.
I wish they'd practice not being so loud.
This baby better get used to loud noises quick!
What's his name going to be? We don't have a name picked yet.
What names are on the list? What list?
We've been having a REALLY hard time pick any names.
Wish us luck.
We'll post pictures and his name as soon as we have some.

Patrick's Prestigious Award

Today was a big day for Patrick.
He got his first Citizenship award.
(The 1st of the year for his class.)
Colin was disappointed that he didn't get one too
but I think he understands that he'll get a turn soon enough.
Colin is excited that he'll get to have the baby in his picture when it's his turn.

What could make the day even better.....?
Finding a little toad on the way to class!!

Tadpole Update

All the kids have been loving our puddles full of tadpoles. At first it rained a lot and we had big puddles then it didn't rain for days, was really hot, and the puddles started to dry up. The kids were so worried so Dale or I would have to go out every day with the hose to fill up the puddles again. Our hard work is paying off. The tadpoles are growing their legs and loosing their tails. The boys were so excited to find one out of the water today. I'm just glad that we won't have to fill the puddles any more.

The 1st Day of School

Today was the 1st day of school.
The kids were lookin' good in their new clothes.
Samantha is in 3rd grade this year.
I couldn't believe it when we saw the shirt she's wearing,
the dog looks just like our dog Wendy!

Patrick start Kindergarten this year.
(Yes, I bought him the wrong size shirt. The sleeves are too short. Oops!)

Colin's in Kindergarten too.
The boys are so excited to be in different classes.
They told me, "Now everyone will know who we are".
The boys also loved riding the bus for the first time.
I can't believe how big they all are!
