It's January 31st and I'm just now posting to say "Happy New Year". The month has been busy. It's been alternately frigid and seasonably warm at home which makes for planning to do anything difficult. We joined the Rec Center and have been taking the kids swimming. One evening of swimming ended in stitches for me. Skyler jumped to me and her chin tried to bore a hole through my skull.
I ended up with three stitches (never had those before). It was an interesting evening to say the least.
I let Mike take the stitches out as I wasn't about to wait hours to have someone go snip snip snip.
Skyler has been quite the peach lately. She LOVES housework and will BEG me to let her help me. I love giving her little jobs to do and she really is a huge help. Sometimes it makes things harder (such as vacumming) but I figure if I take the time to show her how to do it and let her help then she'll do it for years to come (wishful thinking).
My Kirby weighs A LOT more than she does.
Zack is doing great in school. He doesn't like "writing sentences" but seems to really love math and reading. He's a man of few words unless it's 10:30 on a school night and he's not supposed to be up. Then I get all the good info. He was recently thrilled when I showed him that a little blurb I wrote about him made it into a magazine called "Wondertime". It's also on their website if you click the link.
Matt loves his work and is a fantastic teacher. He's planning on coaching Volleyball again in the fall. We keep running into his athletes and they beg him to return. He's also recently started a part time job of bouncing in a bar. He's having fun with it and making some vacation money.
That's all I've got for January. I'll try for more pictures in February!
