Big Things Happening

For us anyway...

Josh learned to tie his shoes! I know it seems like something he should have known how to do in Kindergarten but he just couldn't get it. He has also figured out how to multiply and is reading above his grade level.

Jacob has started giving kisses, waving goodbye, army crawling and is sitting up really well. Pretty soon he'll have his first tooth and be able to crawl. It's going by so quickly!

Seth loves to ride his bike and I don't think it will be long before we can remove the training wheels. He just loves being outside, rain or shine!

Um, yeah, I don't think Noah knows how to tie shoes yet either. The problem is that now days over half the shoes are velcro or zip or have stretchy laces. I supposed I should work on that with him huh?

Yea Josh!
Do you think he could come tutor my kids? :)
Why do they grow up so fast?
We have only been gone 3 weeks and already look at what Jacob is doing!

So exciting! My daughter (Kirstyn) learned to tie her shoes using a book I found called "Red Lace, Yellow Lace." Then we loaned it to a friend and haven't seen it since. Guess I need to ask about getting that book back so Hayden can learn now...thanks for the reminder.

What fun milestones. And to think in a mere 8 years one of these young men will be driving!

Josh was so cute when he called to announce he could tie shoes and then he wanted to come over and tie everyones shoes! I'm still amazed that he can multiply...he's ahead of schedule on that one!

I really enjoy this stage with Seth and all his pretend play! (Still not sure about his baby named "forklift"...ha ha ha!)

Oh and I have to mention that I love how Jacob reaches out for me now!!

I check your blog just about everyday. I am just so lazy about comments. I am so glad that I have found your blog, as well as Sherry's, and your mom's. I found some cute pics of Jeff the other day from when we were in junior high on a camping trip with your mom and dad. He looks so different! I would have never reconized him in a store. You I would for sure, you are a clone of your Mommy!

I am so proud of Josh that is so great. I love to tell people about my nephews.

And Seth wow he is to cute!! I love that I can ride my bike outside with him now.

And Jacob!! He is so fun. I love holding him and watching him grow. I love to see him doing the army crawl. He is so sweet with the kisses!!
