Time flies when........

Hello World.

It's Friday, May 20th & I have not posted anything about anyone in a long time. So here are some updates.

Nathaniel: 9, 4th Grade, getting way to big, excited to start playing the trumpet.
Zachary: 6 (almost 7), K, playing t-ball and ready for 1st grade.
Mackenzie: almost 20 months, running, jumping, fearful of nothing

So it's almost time to start Mommy Camp 2011. I am so excited that school is out in 3 weeks. I love having the kids home with me and I can't wait to see what adventures we go on this summer.

I hope to pick up blogging again. We are very excited for a trip this winter to Disney World and I think it would be fun to document the preparations. :) We will be going around Christmas Time.

Last Day of School!!

Today was the last day of school. Yesterday was Zach's last day. I am happy to report that both Nate and Zach will be moving on next year!! Nate will be in 4th grade and Zach will be a Kindergarten. Thy both had a very successful school year. I am proud of them both.

And now comes the fun part....... Mommy Camp!

During the last few summers, I have helped run the Summer Camp Program at Creative Learning Center. CLC runs a fabulous program, however, I am VERY EXCITED to be home with my children!

Oh the places we will go.....

Per Nate's request, I am working on a Summer Mommy Camp Calendar. They really want to know some of the places we will be visiting this summer. I hope to take them to: the farmers market, bowling, pools, parks, splash pads, visit family, the library and so forth. I'll post our day trips as they happen. :)

I asked Nathaniel was he was most looking forward to this summer. His answer, enjoying activities and time with his sister. Mackenzie is 8 months old now and starting to respond to her brothers. :)

When I asked Zachary what he was most looking forward to this summer, he answered "I'm not quite sure. I'll let you know when it's over." Gotta love a newly 6 year old. :)

I hope to be able to update my blog more often now that we will be home more often. Mackenzie is also starting to "crawl" out of the needs mommy every minute stage. She enjoys playing with her brothers and I think it will only be a matter of time before she is FULLY into EVERYTHING!!
