Student of the Month

Kitrina came home yesterday with the biggest news so far this year. She was so excited, her grin was from ear to ear. She received Student of the Month for April. I received this picture via text message from a PTA member, who is also in my ward, so excuse the fussyness.

She brought home this certificate and the purple pencil.

The letter she brought home says that each grade gets to nominate two students, based on the following attributes...

  • Academic effort--does her personal best
  • Respect--demonstrates respect for school, teachers, fellow students, and the community
  • Courtesy--is considerate, congenial and friendly
  • Responsibility--assumes and initiates tasks for the betterment of our school
  • Leadership--demonstrates positive leadership by example.

We are so proud of our little Girl and the example she sets for her fellow class mates and her younger brother

Congrats Kitrina keep up the good work.

New Toy (For Mom)

I have wanted a deep freezer for a while now and found one on Lewisyardsales.com for really cheep so we went and got it last night. Jared and I carried in the house and I filled it this morning. Well it's not really full yet but one of these day it might be. I have my pureed Strawberries and some homemade jam, frozen banana's for bread and popcicles. That was all I had in my freezer that is not used every often. maybe now I can make dinners ahead of time and freeze them and not fill like I have no room left for the everyday things I need like Chicken nuggets, for Collin, and hot dogs, for Dad.



First homemade Mothers Day gift



Kit brought home her first homemade gift for Mother's Day. She couldn't remember what type of plant she planted. If you have any idea what it might be let me know. (HINT HINT DAD)

The New

A lady at Jared's work gave him a twin size bed frame. He brought it home and sanded in down and then repainted it. The top railing of the head and foot board are purple and the legs down are a blue color. It turned out great. Kitrina just loves her new bed. Her bedroom is starting to look like a big girls bedroom instead of a little girls room with the new Sleigh Bed.

May 5th

Wednesday May 5th started out early for us. Two kids joined us shortly after 6 am. Their mommy had gone to Flordia for a family wedding and thier day to work, and PT starts at 630am. The kids were great we watched TV until my own kids woke up, which was just before 630. Kit was eager to get ready for school so she could play with the two girls before she headed out for the day. We had an appointment at the school for Ethan. I got the kids dressed and made it to school on time. We had fun running on the grass in the middle of the school. About half way threw Natile needed a drink so we headed to the office were they had a drinking fountain. Natalie helped her self and then I help Collin and Charlotte. While I was helping Charlotte Collin snuck out the front door without me knowing and was missing for about 5 minutes. I am sure I was more terrified then he was. We came home after Ethan was done and just stayind inside since it was cold and damp outside. The kids had a lot of fun. While Collin and Charlotte took their nap Ethan and Natalie painted at the table. Over all the day was nice and they were excelent guests.

Here is Ethan Helping Charlotte make a tower she could then knock over.


Here Charlotte is riding Very big Thomas the Train.

Here is Natalie and Ethan Coloring at the table before Kit had to go to school. You can see her arms in the side of the picture.
