UH -OH "SUMMER O"




Well the time has come that the kids are out of school for the summer. It has been a whirl wind of activity for the last few weeks. Last week was there last few days of school. They had raised money throughout the school year and were able to take a school wide field trip this year and go to Bernheim Forest. I was honored(HA) to go and be on the the helpers for Nathan's class. The rest of the week consisted of them having Tuesday off for election day in KY and then Wed-Fri were award ceremonies for the kids. On Friday last week I ended up coming down with a terrible sinus infection and spent all weekend in bed. So talk about starting the summer off right! The kids did great and I was very pleased with the awards that they received. Jericka shocked us and pulled off an Awesome Author Award. Nathan was able to make Honor Roll again for the whole year and Kyle was given Best Attitude award. Not to mention all of the other ones for their improvement in the other subjects. We are pleased with the way all three kids are doing. It makes a mom proud to see that her children enjoy going to school and striving to do their best. The pictures were taken after each one of them got their awards and Nathan started to cry because he became very close to his teacher. I am so thankful that we have not had any teacher so far that the kids or us do not like. So thanks to all the great teachers out there that pour their heart out to teach our children.

All I Want For Christmas Is....


Well it finally happened. Jericka's top two teeth had been loose for quite a while and then a couple of weeks ago she and Kyle collided and bumped her mouth on his head. We thought that she would surely loose the teeth then but to no avail. Last night when she came home from school the one was barely hanging on. She didn't want me to touch it but then when Daddy couldn't get it out she came begging me to help her. It came out pretty easily but there was no way that she was going to let me get the other tooth. So she was excited to get to put the tooth and wait for the Tooth Fairy. At 3:00 this morning she got up and came and woke me up and said that the Tooth Fairy had already come and she wanted the other tooth to come out. So finally she went back to sleep only to get up again in about four hours. As she was eating breakfast she decided to start working on the other tooth and wouldn't you know that she got it out before school. She even wanted to take it and show the teacher but I was able to convince her that the teacher could see because all she had to do was smile. I am afraid that she may try to loose a lot more so that the Tooth Fairy will keep coming. When Nathan saw that she had lost both teeth he started singing the song "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth"

Spring


I thought I would let you all know that we are still here and keeping very busy with this spring season. Baseball is in full swing and school is coming down to the end. It seems as if there is never enough time to get everything accomplished in one day but I am trying to make the best of it. Trust you all enjoy the picture of the kids. The tree is in front of our house and is absolutely beautiful this year. I think spring is becoming my favorite season.
