March Happenings

#1 did lots of reading this month! We have found some fun book series on his reading level and he's flying through them. He also enjoys audio books and is listening to The Lord of the Rings right now.

He's continuing to work hard during school time. In PA we have lots more requirements than most states, so in April we'll be getting him ready for a standardized test and getting his portfolio ready for the evaluator. 

#2 is doing new things, like being more independent when we're out and about and putting on and zipping his coat all by himself! So proud of him.

Sweet brother time!

He loves playing with blocks! In fact, in my pre-spring cleaning, I got rid of all the toys in the house except for his blocks, #1's Legos, and a few trains and cars. They haven't missed anything and tidying up is a lot faster and easier! 

#2 had an appointment with a new doc in Hershey, so of course we had to go to Chocolate World!

Warm enough for some tennis! Looking forward to more warm days this spring!

This Week: It's Still Winter

It's still winter at our house! Lots of days out of school and delays. We're having fun though!
#1 made a video of himself playing the x-box. You can check it out on his website

My car ride buddy to Starbucks.

Reading his Bible.

Being cute and funny at school.

Wiggling that loose tooth non-stop. 

I have to sit in front of the dishwasher to keep #2 from opening it. 

Playing in the snow!

February (So Far!)

I'm a little behind on sharing all that's going on at our house! All these snow days have me off my routine. Speaking of snow days ...

#2 does not like them at all. One day he wore his backpack for an hour because he wanted to be ready for his van driver.

#1 and I are still plugging through his school, snow days or not!

#2 had some oral surgery a couple weeks ago. He did great!

#3 is in a new class now, and his old class made him a book with notes and pictures to say they missed him!

#1 and I got to see Moses at Sight and Sound. So cool!

Mommy & #1 Head to Hogwarts

For Christmas, Lee got #1 and me a trip to Universal Studios in Orlando, FL! We got to go earlier this week and had so much fun!
Leaving the snow and ice behind!

Here's #1 at the airport and in our room. Since most of our vacations are to visit family, this is the first time he stayed in a hotel since he was two years old. He loved it. 

We got early admission to the park an hour before it opened for everyone else. 

We headed straight for the Harry Potter attractions! 

#1's favorite part was visiting Ollivander and getting his own wand!

His favorite ride was the Despicable Me ride, where we got turned into minions (and then turned back, thankfully).

Watching the parade

Visiting Jurassic Park was fun too!

#1 decided he wanted to be team Slytherin. They have a reputation for being the bad guys, so I wondered why, but he reminded me two Slytherins save Harry's life. I love when bad guys turn out to be good, and I guess #1 does too.

This Week: Christmas

#3 got his holiday haircut!

#1 enjoyed singing with the kids' choir at church on Christmas Eve.

The boys enjoyed opening their gifts Christmas morning. 

Playing with Harry Potter Legos and watching a Harry Potter movie. 

Getting kisses in front of the Kisses.

Enjoying an unseasonably warm day.
