after being repeatedly scolded for not blogging, i'm girding up my loins to do so. i just find that facebooking is so much easier! i don't have to find more than about 25 words to make my point known. but i'll update here for those who don't FB.
so school is almost out for big c. he gets out on the 11th but we are going to florida then so his last day is the 10th. he has done so well this year. it was hard in the beginning but i'm so glad we decided to put him in this school. not only has he had to work for his grades, but he has really enjoyed what he has learned. his teachers are amazing and the principal is a man who is willing to do whatever it takes to keep the kids and their parents happy. and to top it all off he has a girlfriend. they had their 6 month anniversary on tuesday. she is a sweetie and even tho she is very shy around me, i like her lots. and he has kissed her! and he told me!! i love that we have that kind of relationship. i'm hoping it will last thru the whole teenage years! he is still playing in the youth band at church and gets better all the time. and now he is teaching himself to play my guitar. (which i still can't play!) what a great kid. he is going to the beach with a friend for a week then going to panama beach with the youth group for 5 days. and he has a seasons pass for carowinds. i'm hardly gonna see him at all this summer!
just some ouchies from skateboarding
monkey is done with school as well. this year he learned to read and to do math. he likes reading but is lazy and would rather do something else. (unlike his mother!) but math. man he is a whiz at it! he asks to do subtraction! where in the world did that come from? (not from his mother!) but his imagination is what amazes me! he can play with anything and make a whole world out of it. and i'm not talking about toys. we have some sample bottle of hubby's meds and i gave them to him to play with. (b/c he asked. weird kid) and he has put stuff in them, built with them, invented stuff with them etc. he is awesome! i guess not having anyone but me to play with most of the time, he gets creative when he can! he did not get into the school we wanted him to for 1st grade so he will be homeschooled again. but i am going to put him in martial arts and hopefully a lego club and an art class. he loves to draw. and he's pretty good at it too. now i have to find a curriculium for him.
we have been super busy with church. we helped with a homemakeover which was AMAZING!! hubby of course was there the whole weekend but it was also when the Beans were here so it was not easy for me to be there. Rand went with hubby and then later that night we all went to see Dave Matthews Band.
that was awesome!! and angela and i went shopping and had lunch and left all the kids home together.
that was so great for us! but church. hubby is still playing in the band. but now only every other week and the opposite week he works in the parking lot. and i'm loving being with my 2 year olds every week. they are a huge blessing to me! and i love getting to know all the parents that way too. monkey of course can't wait for sunday's b/c he gets to play with kids. he informed me that he has a girlfriend but i haven't met her yet! wednesday's in june we will have nighttime life groups. can't wait for that! todd is going to talk about the words of Jesus. i should earn a lot.
oh and lucy. our kitty. she is so much fun! and she loves to give kisses and sleep on the bed. i love a snugly kitty. however she is the most ungraceful cat ever! she can hardly jump up on chairs. cracks us up. she and the dog get along great. zoe will chase her down the hall and then he comes zoe being chased by the cat. love it!
good grief. that's all i can do for now. my fingers hurt.
