These pictures might be a little late, but seriously- he wears a uniform to school. It's always the same thing. So here's my 2nd grader on his 4th day of school!
He is such a good student and is anxious to learn more this year. I am proud of him for his decision to always study hard and make school a priority. We have been so blessed to be able to keep him at Grace. It is a school that not only holds you to the highest standards academically but also spiritually. I am thankful for his teachers who do not just teach him the basic ABC's, but teach him how to be a better person. How to love God with all your heart and really strive to be Christlike.
This weekend was spent together as a family. We had hoped to go to the beach or something fun like that- but Lennix woke up with a fever, (darn teeth!) so we ditched any plans and stayed home. What we thought was going to be just another boring weekend- was actually really fun. I got to go for my usual Saturday morning run a little later than usual thanks to Jared being home, and then Jared and Kody went to Oakridge to get some laps in at the pool. After that, Jared and Steve L. took the kids to see the movie Fly me to The Moon in 3-d while Lennix and I stayed home and took a nap. After they got home, we jumped on our skateboards and headed to the park for some more family time. Who knew you could work up such a sweat on a skateboard!?!?
After the park we met up with the Lukes for some dinner at Campos. Great food shared with even better company. The kids all did really well at dinner (except for Kody trying to choke out Zoe and Lennix taking her tank top off and wearing it as a shrug) but we were looking forward to a quiet night after such a crazy day.
This last picture was taken this morning. As I was pulling my camera out to download them onto the computer, Lennix insisted on me taking her photo. I love her messy hair and the "Jared like" expression she has on her face. If you look closely, you can see the red mark on her forehead she got from bumping into our kitchen table at 2:00 in the morning. Or maybe it was when she woke up at 2:30 am. Or 3:05 am. Yes, she started getting up in the middle of the night for no apparent reason. HELP! I'm just hoping you're all right and this is just a phase! Because I don't know how much more I can take!!
