May Musings

After my last post, I realized that I may have sounded a bit harsh. Don't get me wrong, it's challenging with a very vocal 3 year old, but I'm so grateful to be the one he snuggles and calls Mommy.

Today was Ian's last day of Pre-K. He will be in Kindergarten in the fall. WHAT? When did that happen? I can't believe that he's 5 already. He's so excited about Kindergarten. He will go to Southpark Christian School for one more year. By then, we will have sold our house and be in a school district that is better for the kids. Hoping and praying it works out that way. Today Ian received his first official school certificate. Guess what it was for? Gentleness and caring about others. Charlie and I are so proud of him. He's a little charmer.

Drew has one more day of the K2 program at Southpark Christian School. He'll be out until the fall, when he starts K3. That is if he's fully potty trained. We're struggling with that. Charlie and Drew will be home during the day together this summer and that's their mission.

Drew is talking more and more each day. Here are some my recent favorite Drewisms:

"cover my up"
"oh my"
"it's gonna be awesome"
"no way jose"
"I sorry...I didn't mean to"

Ian is still talking up a storm and asking more questions than I have answers for. Now for some Ianisms:

"adoptanation" - graduation
"mommy, I love you with my whole heart"

They both bring us tons of joy each day. I wonder what we ever did with our time before we had kids. We are going to take our first real road trip in a couple of weeks to Kansas City for a wedding. We're going to stay at the Great Wolf Lodge and have lots of fun.

I promise when I can figure out what program is going to work on our new computer that will download the pictures from my camera, I'll post some. I have filled up one memory card in my big camera and I'm almost full in my other one. I have a LOT to download.

Hey Nadra!

Can't believe Ian is 5! Jadyn is 4 and starting Pre-K this fall. We look forward to seeing you at India Camp in June! The boys are really going to enjoy Great Wolf Lodge. We've been to the one in Kansas City and really liked it. If you can, visit the spa for some Mommy time. It was wonderful! See ya soon!
