Triple Birthday Bash... part 3

Finally, here are the pictures of Josh's birthday. Am I old enough to have an 8 year old?

I forgot I don't have pics of him with his cake because my battery died. I will have to ask my Mom to send those over.

Triple Birthday Bash

Summers at our house are always crazy, not only do we have all the usual summer fun and activities planned, we have three boys with birthdays to celebrate! I thought maybe I could catch you up on what those looked like and how we celebrated this year. I'm going to have to do it in three posts though so I can fit all the pictures in. First we'll start with Jacob, his birthday was tough because we were dealing with the fact that my Grandpa was so sick. In fact, we found out just before the party that he would be going into hospice care the following day. So it was as if we were celebrating a little life and dealing with the possible loss of an older one all at once! God is good and pulled us all through...

Been so long...

It's been so long since I blogged, I almost forgot how to log in. I really want to be here but I just can't find myself saying much.

I guess I can share a little bit about Seth's first week in Kindergarten though. The very first day he had some good stuff...

Monday, first thing out of his mouth "I didn't even go to the Principal's office today!"
Later on ~ "Lunch is the best part of school!"

Tuesday he fell asleep in music at some point and lost his lunch box somehow. Then the cafeteria was closed by the time I picked him up so we couldn't find it. He ended the day by being on yellow!

On Wednesday he had a tough time because the assistant tossed his lunch before he was completely done. That set him off and he began to cry his eyes out. The principal had to call me and have me talk with him to calm him down. He begged to come home but I wouldn't give in. He's got to learn I can't come get him any time he's upset! He came home on green though.

Thursday went great and he got a green star!

We'll see what happens today. He seemed hesitant to go...

Doesn't he seem so tiny in that uniform?

I think his back pack weighs more than he does!
