Jack and Eli our neighbor
We had a great day for Jack's birthday! It was a beautiful day for a swimming party. He loved having his Mickey cake and all of his awesome Mickey presents!
I cannot believe that Jack is 4. Time has flow bye. He is an amazing kid. He's full of life and energy. I think about the day we got him and cannot believe how far he has come. He is my little dare devil and my drama king. He can almost swim and is very coordinated. They love him in tumbling class. He is speaking well and is a really likable kid. He is also the most dramatic child ever. I'm pretty sure he got all of Ethan's drama. Unlike Ethan he would ham it up on stage!
That's right Ethan has graduated from Kindergarten. The kids put on a little show and then received their diplomas. Ethan was so stage fright he just stood there the whole time. He did manage to say his lines in the poem, and go up for the diploma. Let's just say acting is NOT in his future :)
Ethan turned 6 May 14th, and we had his birthday at Entertrainment Junction. He had neighbor's, friends, and family at his party. Ethan had a great day.
I have to say I cannot believe my little boy is 6. He has grown into such a sweet little boy. He could not be a better big brother, and is the most Christian child I know. We love watching him grow up. His favorite foods are hot dogs and Chinese chicken with red sauce. He also loves cake and ice cream. He loves to fish, bowl, and play on the computer. He's really into Transformers and Power Rangers. We love watching Ethan practice his Power Ranger moves :)
At 6 Ethan can now read. It has been fun watching him learn! He is amazing at math and loved Kindergarten. He is very close to swimming. He can cast a fishing line and bowls pretty well too. He had a great time running track and he played T-ball. It's been a good year for Ethan.
So, what I've learned is having 4 kids under 6 will make you behind on well about everything! I've also learned that that's okay, cuz I'd rather spend the time having fun with them. In the next several blogs I'll attempt to catch up on my blogs. Why do I have time now you ask? Because my kids are at grandma's and Papa's this week!!! Yay!!! What are we doing? Everything we're behind on: Cleaning, laundry, car rust, pictures, fixing lawn mowers, yard work ect. ect. Of course dinners out for us :) It's been a great week so far, and the kids are having fun. The grand parents, well they might be exhausted. God bless the grandparents. This is better than vacation. It's a staycation with no kids.
