This Week: Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

#1 working hard on typing his first report. He thought it was fun. At least the title and first sentences were fun!

Checking out the decorated tree.

By the light of the tree and the iPad.

We got to see #1 in his theatre production! He's Luke in The Homecoming.

Happy kiddo!

This Week: Dad's Birthday

Our school district gets the day off for the start of hunting season. Unfortunately for my school-loving boys, it comes after Thanksgiving break, so they feel like they've been out of school forever. #2's therapist came to the house and helped him stay busy and happy by working on the letter J.

Getting my good night kisses.

#1 finished the Harry Potter books and movies, so we played the Scene It? game as our "test." He loved it!

It's opening week for #1's latest play and he was exhausted from the late rehearsals. He's doing great though and Lee and I can't wait to see him!

Out to lunch to celebrate his birthday! 

He had both grills going to get ready for a few friends to come over.

I had to teach him how to put his hands in his pockets. It's cold waiting for the bus!

This Week: Thanksgiving

The weather has been wild this week! One day it's sunny and warm and a couple days later we're getting snow. #3 is ready for whatever comes though. 

We thought this shirt was appropriate for him. 

 #1 got to watch the final two Harry Potter movies this week. He loved them!

 On one warm day, we got some work done outside.

We celebrated Thanksgiving and Christmas with my parents and sister this week. It was so much fun! Happy to have #3 with us this year.

This Week: In the Leaves

#1 has moved on to a new math curriculum and it excited to start multiplication. 
The boys had fun playing in the leaves in the back yard!

#1 is enjoying learning about all the states.

#1 helping #3 with his homework. Such a good big brother!

This Week: #3 Starts School

#2 was out of school the first two days of the week, so we thought we'd head to Hershey and Chocolate World! We all had a good time. 

#2 took advantage of the days out of school to dress like Buzz Lightyear all day! 

 #3 started school this week! His class isn't a very good fit for his needs, but his teacher is wonderful and is taking good care of him. We're very thankful she's advocating for him to get what he needs!

My two first graders! 

The van is getting a new transmission, so we're all squeezing in the little black car for a while. It's cozy in the back seat!
