Missing Teeth

Jared's been losing teeth these days. First, his teeth on the bottom got booted out of place by his adult teeth coming in. Then, his baseball coach pulled one of Jared's very loose top teeth - Ha! And now he lost his 2nd top tooth just yesterday (Sunday). It was hanging on by a thread and I knew was about to come out. Jared looks like a cute little boy with his teeth all missing :)Guess the Tooth Fairy has been busy at our home these last few weeks ;)

P.S. Jared has a funny story about how he lost this 2nd top tooth. You'll have to ask him about it the next time you see him ;)

Catcher Jared

Jared's baseball league is in tournament time. Jared had his first single-elimination game this AM...and his team won! Go boys! It was a fun game. Jared played catcher. What a cute little catcher here! ;) He also scored 1 for his team - yay!Now his team moves on to the next game elimination. They have a pretty good chance of winning the tournament, as they are 11W-1L for the season. Go boys go! :)

1st grade is coming to an end!

Jared is almost done with 1st grade. Wow! Yes, I know. Some of you are thinking "huh? you guys are getting out of school now?" Yup. That's how our school district goes. It's called "modified year round." We get 8 weeks off in the summer (our kids will go back in late July), then 2 weeks off in the fall, 2 weeks at Christmastime and then 2 again for spring break (along with onesie and twosie days off throughout the year here and there). It works and we love it.

In any case ;) , Jared is almost a 2nd grader! I can't believe that! He's had a great year in 1st grade...lots of friends made, LOTS of learning (anyone multiply numbers in 1st grade? like 2x7, 7x5, 2x3? I really don't think I did that in 1st grade!) and lots of fun with his teacher. We love her!

She gave out class awards this past week. Jared got the "always being polite" award! That's our Jared! :) Oh, and us parents could tell that the kids were ready for summer...lots of fidgeting and silliness going on - Ha! ;)

Jared receiving his award from his teacher (Mrs. P).The kids giving Mrs. P a "gift card tree," her favorite plant (hibiscus) and lots of gift cards to her favorites places! Notice a pic of Jared on the screen in the slideshow - Ha! ;)Jared with Mrs. P. She is such a sweet, caring and gifted teacher! I can only pray that all of Jared’s future teachers are as awesome as she is! And that some of our girls can have her as their teacher in the future too ;)The girlies get out of school the same time as Jared. I'll have to take a picture of them with their teachers :) They've really enjoyed their pre-school. Praise God we are SO fortunate to have such a great school system here in town!

Summer is just around the corner! Well, I guess weather-wise it's already here for us, what with our 100* temps - Ha! :P

Swimming for the first time!

Tonight, we went swimming! Yes! Even though it was 82* in our pool it felt cold to me ;) But not for our 5 kids. They jumped right in. Okay, maybe Jared was the only one jumping but the girls did get their feet in it. Then, Suzan (of course her! ;) ) started splashing...first with her wild arms/hands and then laying on her belly kicking. Ha! Some of the other girls were splashing a bit too but then I think it got a bit chilly for them so they got out, got towels and then we all watched Jared cannonball into the pool, swim from one end to the other and do some back and front glides.

Jared, Suzan, Anna, Bethany and Brielle enjoying a swim! The girlies look so much older to me, wearing big girl swim suits now!I got the 5 kids signed up for swim lessons this summer through our parks & rec program. It's reasonably priced, good teaching (Jared's taken them every summer since he was ~2yo!) and close by to us. It will be fun to see the girlies (2 in 1 class and 2 in another) in the lessons! They will be taking the same class Jared took when he was 3! How funny! The girls are excited for swimming and getting to wear their new swim suits - Ha!

Looking forward to summer break! Yay! :)
