Baby update

We had our ultrasound today and the baby looks great! We didn't get a good look at the full spine because this kiddo was a little stubborn (imagine that!!) :-) It was a very exciting hour as the tech tried to get a good look and give us the one piece of info we really wanted. FINALLY, we found out that we are having .......a........

Yep, another boy for the herd. We aren't disappointed at all, we are only super excited!! Now, only to decide on a name. Any suggestions??

Brayden started 1st grade at the end of July! 1st grade people!! We moved him from the Charter school he went to last year to the public school by our house. It was such a hard decision but the school by us seemed to be a much better choice. The first couple of weeks were a little rough on Brayden - he got several time-outs and was even in a fist fight the second day! I didn't realize that changing schools would be so traumatic for him but he seems to have settled down and is now liking school and has even made several friends. He is doing amazing too! He loves spelling and mathm and is such a great reader - he can even read the same books Tarell reads. Good job kiddo!

Tarell turned 10 August 1st and is definitely growing up. The following week he also started school and is really happy to be back. He enjoys playing with his friends and learning new things. He also loves math and we are so proud of him! Tarell decided this year that he would skip out on orchestra and try something new - he chose the trumpet. He is super excited to learn this new instrument and we can't wait to hear him play.

Landon started preschool at his daycare and LOVES it! This kid is almost always happy. He is so outgoing at school and also enjoys playing with his friends, which he has a ton of! Landon can make friends wherever he goes. He is working on letters and numbers and recognizing colors. He loves it!

I LOVE when the kids go back to school. I love homework time each day after school and I love hearing about their daily adventures. It's also so nice to know that someone else is entertaining these darling kiddos each day, especially since I have not been feeling so well the past few weeks. YAY for school - it really is the most wonderful time of the year!!
