Noah is our big boy and he will be in the 1st grade next week! He is so funny! He has informed me many times that he does not want it to be August. He wants it to stay July forever! Don't we all buddy, don't we all. Some stats on Noah: he is 60 lbs. and 50 in. tall. 73% in height and 83% in weight. Big Boy. Some of his fav things to do is play the wii (of course), and since daddy recently took his training wheels off, the boy loves to ride his bike! He is a very analytic thinker. Black and White with this boy, there is no in between. Because of the way he thinks, he is very very good at math and numbers. He loves counting up his money and lets me know how much more he needs to buy whatever it is he wants. Usually a wii or DS game. I think the next one he wants is something like Mario Cart 7 (how many of those things do they need really??). Jacob is next. He will be in KINDERGARTEN this year! I thought for sure he was not ready. He hasn't been in preschool for almost 2 years, and still struggles a little bit with his letters. Well, we signed him up and went in for our prekindergarten screening. I wasn't able to be in there while he was being tested, so after the test I went in to pick him up ready to get the "he's not quite there" talk from the teacher. Well, he scored above average on the test. What? I laughed and said, are you sure? no, really? She laughed and said he did quite well and that apart from getting a few letters confused he did great! Wow! So excited to hear that! Proud of our Jacob. Jacob's favorite thing to do has not changed since he was a baby. The kids LOVES dirt. We go to the park up the road to play and he kicks his shoes off and sits and plays in the dirt the whole time. His hands and feet are BLACK when we are done, so a bath everyday is a MUST with that kid! He is tall and skinny. Actually he is built just like my brother. His last appointment was back in March (before the move) and I cannot for the life of me find the paper where I wrote everything down. He loves to watch Noah play the wii and has actually in the past few month been playing himself. He's not quite as mastered as Noah is, so there is often some quarreling in the play room which usually involves Jacob not pushing A or B, but he's doing pretty good! Jacob has an amazing imagination! We went to the water park the other day and for an hour (I kid you not) he was bent over playing with a long blade on grass. Swirling it in the water and watching it "swim". So funny. Every time I looked up for a head count, he was in the same place in the same position watching that thing. Love that kid. He is a stinker sometimes, they all are, but I love them and am so thankful to be called their mommy!

Three of Four after the water park and ice cream.
What? It is.
The big boys.
Just another day at the park.
She is his second mommy.
She loves him so much! He is still undecided.
Just turned two! (Obviously.)
