First Grade.

First few days of School went well; Kaden seems to like his new class. They write in daily journals which is great b/c I learned that he loves Minecraft (obviously) and kittens. ��

There's issues with the school bus �� b/c they are doing 2 buses and it was a disaster, but I knew it would be a mess so I've been driving �� him, which has been nice b/c kids have stayed to play on playground ⛪️������  and I've been chatting with moms. ��

We went out to eat on the last day of summer and enjoyed the dinner at Otani. I was so proud of the kiddos because they ate sushi!  I didn't think they would want any b/c we were eating hibachi, so I  got one yellowtail roll, (negi hamachi maki), so I'd have just a little sushi and they each ate 2 pieces!!

March 2015.

We are ready to escape from winter hibernation! Kaden has had 8, yes 8, snow days. And coupled with the extended weekends so gracefully planned by his catholic school and holidays, we have not had a 5-day school week for all of 2015. So, it has been COLD! But it;s finally warming up and we are ready!

Kaden is enjoying kindergarten, he is excelling academically and recently was placed in an Accelerated Reader program that lets him check higher level books out at library time and take tests on the content to earn rewards. He's continually surprising me with his smarts and I am sure he will be smarter than me soon. eek! But he's still a sweet little kid and likes when we have special mom/Kaden dates and are "best buds".

He likes reading; we recently finished The Magic Tee House series and have been reading Pokemon books and others. He enjoys playing video games including all things Mario and iPhone apps- especially Hill Climb Racing. His fav shows to watch are Mario/Luigi episodes, Lego Movie, Despicable Me movies

 Carson, sweet Carson, is 2.5 and loves sports and is lots of fun. He has ear-length long blondish hair. He loves the color orange, cars and balls. He enjoys golf, Paw Patrol and movies- oh how he loves movies! His favorites lately have been:
  • Monsters, Inc. 
  • Polar Express
  • Monsters, Inc. 
  • Pixar Short Stories
  • The Lego Movie
  • Mr. Peabody & Sherman
  • Frozen
  • Cars 1 & Cars 2
  • Despicable Me 1 & 2
When Carson runs, he closes the fist on his right arm, bends his arm and pumps it back and forth as he runs. We call it his "running arm"- super cute. We count stair/steps as we go up/down, then *hop* off of the last one!  Our living room is a step-down from our open-concept kitchen, and we always hop down, even when running!

(More to come, figured I will publish in the meantime!)

Snow days.

It is so cold that school was canceled, again. 

Little Carson just picked up a play telephone, puts it to his ear and says, "he-wo!" Then he laughs like the person is telling him something amusing. ��

Last night, K was putting together a puzzle with a large clock with movable arms and told me (accurately) what time it was. I asked how he knew that, or if he learned at school- he said, "no, I just figured it out inside my head." 

Stay warm!
