Like his biggest sister, Nicholas doesn’t like to settle down at night when it’s time for bed. Also like his biggest sister, he is utterly adorable while refusing to settle down.
Every year the city of San Antonio shuts down for Fiesta. It’s to honor the memories of the heroes of the Battles of the Alamo and San Jacinto, but mostly is just a big city-wide party.
The kindergartners had to make floats to pull in the school parade. They got two weeks off homework to make their floats. This of course meant we made Mayci’s the night before it was due.
I read a lot. The kids, especially the three little boys, see me on my Kindle or with the occasional paper book every day.
They love to read, too (even if sometimes they hold the book upside down). This makes me so incredibly happy.
A few months ago we decided to have a cookout on a Saturday.
We made kielbasa, hot dogs, and burgers.
We added pickles and olives and baked beans and cole slaw and potato salad and chips.
The kids (well, all of us) loved it so now we have a cookout one Saturday a month.
After watching the adults carefully for months, Joel has started trying to serve up dinner. We had chicken and waffles the other day and he stood in my mother’s chair and ripped the waffles into pieces and filled up the kids plates.
We decided to get the kids a Nugget.
We waited about six weeks for it to arrive.
It was worth the wait.
It’s so much fun as a couch or as whatever else the kids can come up with.
I think we’ll get a couple more of these.
