Quick photo updates

I though this was so funny.  Joseph is not particularly into writing.  However, Bob brought him to school one day a couple of weeks ago and apparently Joseph was very worried about his lego person he forgot to get from Bob.  So he wrote this note.  Best piece of writing yet.  That’s what motivation will do for you.

This past week was packed with outings.  So much was happening around here I had to pick and choose so we would have some nights at home.  Anyways, here is a blurry picture from the Middlebury Union Middle School production of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory at Town Hall Theater.  It was Joseph’s first show and he loved it.  Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was one of the first (maybe the first?) chapter book Joseph and I read and it was really neat to get to see it performed.  And the students did an amazing job!

Two night later we headed to a big annual Bingo and Baskets fundraisers.  I had never played bingo before and was a little skeptical.  Until . . .

I won the very first round!  I was so surprised I wouldn’t even yell Bingo and my table-mates had to yell for me.

My loot.  Gift certificates to local businesses and puzzles and games.

And then the grand opening of the new addition to the Shoreham Library.  SOOOO EXCITING!  YAY!!!

Joseph and my second batch of loot this weekend.  (He didn’t want to pose).  A beautiful cabinet, a kindle touch (which I think I am going to trade for a framed map), and a gift certificate for hard cider (won in Joseph’s name).  I have almost never won drawings before, sooo crazy!  Maybe Shoreham is lucky for me?

Brad built us a beautiful new bathroom vanity!!  With some help from his assistant.

We had our first t-ball practice!  It was fun, but also surprising.  Apparently, just like kindergarten and academics, sports have become a lot more pressured earlier for little kids.  Many of the kids at t-ball came with all sorts of fancy gear and they were amazing.  They were hitting into the outfield consistently and the actual t only came out twice.  Crazy.  Brad and Joseph have been very serious about practicing since and Brad got him a real bat, since he had never used one before. I kind of wish kids had more time to just be kids . . . but such is life.

This week I finally got back to my 3 work days a week schedule and I am so happy about this.  I only have a little more time until Joseph heads to kindergarten so I want to savor these days.  Today we joined some friends hiked to the Falls of Lana.  It was gorgeous and so fun!

Beautiful hike!
I just love the writing sample... his handwriting is so good! I have to say I got a little laugh out of his S's... Sophia has the HARDEST time writing S's. Sometimes I just wish I had named her something easy, like AVA or LOLA. "Remember" looks beautiful, though... his penmanship rivals mine already!
