Memorable Moments Spring 2011

Often I write down sayings in random places that the boys have said, or things they've done. I am posting this on here so I dont lose them!

Logan: (Puts a twizzler half dangling into the side of his mouth)
Me: Logan, what are you doing that for?
Logan: to be like Ray (from Ghostbusters)
Me: Why is it just hanging there instead of you eating it, I don't understand.
Logan: Because that's what Ray on GB does. He has a stick in the side of his mouth (aka a cigarette).

SO innocent and I love it!!!
RYAN: Mom, there are ants in the bathroom and we don't even eat in the bathroom!
Me: (LAUGHING) There can be ants other places than where you eat and drop the crumbs.
age 6 ____________________________________________________________________
LOGAN: (while sitting in the back yard on a chair next to me) Ah, if only I were a REAL king, I'd be happy to live in a REAL castle.
I am not sure where that came from!
LOGAN: (while playing the video game Little Big Planet and creating costumes)
"OH, I'm a fairy, I'm a REAL fairy!"

Current Events:

Ryan played his first tball game 5-7-11, hit the ball 3 times from the tee, and made it all the way around the bases. I am so proud.

Logan had his first bloody nose also on 5-7-11. Ryan was being rough with him (but only playing) and hit him in the nose. Ryan ran off not thinking anything of them being rough, and when he saw that Logan was bleeding he started to cry. He really does love his little brother.

Oink! Oink!

Well, it's official... Ryan has read his first full book all by himself! He started to tell me how he was going to read to the baby when it was born and I informed him he didn't have to wait... he could do it now and the baby could hear him! He was quite excited and asked if I would help him. Once he got a little confidence, there was no stopping him! He read "How to be a Pig" by Price Stern Sloan. We are all quite excited about his accomplishment and the new reading adventures ahead!

Tick Tock

It has been almost 8 months since I've posted on here... and I did not forget you were here! So here's what been happening in our house while I was MIA....

1. Ryan started kindergarten and did not like his first day. He has loved it since then!
(He said "mom, all they did was talk and talk and talk about RUULES!") lol

2. Logan has progressed in potty training and is only using pullups at night! (YEAH!!)

3. Logan started Speech therapy and can now say Kiss instead of Tiss.... amongst a long list of other new words. He LOVES his teacher, Mrs. Laura.

4. On New Year's Eve we got one tiny, well BIG surprise... we found out that I am having another BABY!!!! The boys are SOOO excited. I am due Sept. 5th!

5. We made a trip out to Texas to see the fam... and the boys LOVED playing with their cousins Jesse, Jonathan, Justice, Robert, Isaac, Tristan and Elaina... amongst others!

6. Yeah, Ryan turned 6!!! He is also well on his way to reading:) He is reading small words and doing well... although he REALLY dislikes reading. He prefers math and science over reading right now.

7. Has finally registered both boys for school next year... they will start around the same time that I have the baby! Later this week, we will be finding out the sex of the baby... fun times ahead!

Soooooooo... the clock is ticking and I have cakes to make, legos to build, and mouths to feed! These are a few of the moments that have taken my time over the last 8 months, and hopefully I will be back before the next 8 months roll around!
