Right now...


He is a little sad as the end of preschool approaches. He can't wait to play soccer this fall and asks all the time which team he will be on. He's registered for kindergarten but is a little leary about leaving his beloved Miss Leanne. He has several BFFs in preschool and is always asking for playdates. He lost his first tooth and is reading all the time!


He loves playing baseball (coach pitch this year.) He is very into volcanoes and oceans and reading non-fiction books about animals. He is pretty happy-go-lucky most of the time. He has been almost toothless in the front (top AND bottom) for several months but his teeth are finally starting to grow in.


He went on his first backpacking campout this past weekend. He received high praise from his Scout Master for being kind to another Scout who has had a hard time fitting in. He is getting tested today to take 8th grade math next year (he'll be a 7th grader.) He is doing MUCH better at staying on top of his homework.




He is setting up his schedule for next year in HIGH SCHOOL!!! He is playing lots of Warhammer 40K with good buddies from school & church. He stayed up way too late on Friday night playing (4am!) and missed the family Easter egg hunt while napping. He got 3rd place in the 1500 at the track meet on Thursday. He is hoping to get a job at the strawberry fields this summer.


She survived her first two weeks of Driver's Ed. She has three AP tests coming up in the next 2 weeks and is studying like crazy. She is still managing for the track team as her legs heal and is starting to run again slowly. She just did her schedule for her SENIOR year and we are scheduling senior pictures!


He is counting down the days til graduation. He just completed his paperwork and deposit for his dorm this fall. He's going to his last high school dance (Prom) this weekend with Julia. He's hoping to find work this summer as a lifeguard. He is just about to leave me...

This is probably the craziest/busiest year of your life right? Holy cow, so much going on. I just can't believe you have one graduating, high school, and one graduating preschool. Such great KIDS, I'm especially fond of the female in the group :-)
