~Krash is currently 38.5 months old~

Oh how I MISS THIS SWEET BOY!!!! He is down south staying with my parents and my husband’s parents. My mom was sweet and has been sending me photos. Here’s K’s Tot School-Life School recap for his week away from us!!!

Tons of Tot School to be had at Chuck E Cheese’s!!!!He learned to drive a monster truck!!!! VERY important Tot School skill…
Scooter riding with big brother…Tree climbing too…He even painted a monster truck! My mom took the boys to one of those ceramics places and he chose a monster truck to paint!!!I know he has had a great week, but I am ready for his craziness to be back home!!!!

If you have a tot (approximately ages 1-3) at home, join in the fun and share what you’re doing with your tot! Here’s how to get started if you’re new…

If you’ve never read this: Go HERE 1st for more details- please do!!! Then if you have any ideas you’d like to share, link up your exact post to MckLinky (if you have questions about how to do that, let me know in a comment or email-links to homepages will automatically be deleted).

When you add your name(blog name) to MckLinky will you put your tot’s age (in months) after it, like this: 1+1+1=1 (36 mos)? I think this will help new readers a lot as they look for ideas for their specific aged tot!

 

 

Tot School ~ On Vacation!

~Krash is currently 38.5 months old~

Krash is having the BEST week!!! Filled with many firsts for him and loads of family fun!!! Here’s a recap of his Life-School filled week on vacation…

We celebrated Daddy’s birthday last Sunday and Daddy kindly let K take a bite—right out of his cakeIt was well worth getting this shot…Nana and Pop Pop took K and Pac Man to the fire station!!! Something they had been wanting to do…The boys spent most of their nights away from me, with Daddy at Nana and Pop Pop’s house (my husband’s parents). I stayed with my parents and Ladybug. While at N & P’s house, K got to sleep in a tent!!!
They spent 2 nights sleeping on their boat and got to have FUN at the lake! Driving Pop’s boat…
Stopping to play a game of putt-putt…
Swimming in the lake…
Feeding the ducks…
Examining the worms…
Fishing with Daddy…
Nana and Pop have a little dog Duke…I’m sure he just loves it when K comes to visit ;)…
He even got to go to Great Wolf Lodge for a night!!!!
He had his first dentist experience (Nana is our hygienist so it’s pretty easy for us!)…He displayed his strength for us with Nanee’s (my mom) BIG ball…He and Nanee played volleyball with it. Only a grandparent would allow that in the house.My parents have a pool, and he got to spend lots of time here swimming too. We are really proud of his bravery. This is the first time he wanted to *swim* by himself to Daddy…I just LOVE these faces!!!!!He was a big jumper this time too…My cousin and her kids (and my aunt) stopped in for a night (they were traveling down to the beach and made a pit stop). My kids got to see her kids for the first time in 6 years, it was wonderful!!!!! K got to meet them all for the first time obviously, and he just LOVED *the guys*–the oldest 2 boys. They were so funny together!
This sums up how Krash is feeling right now, and he still has a whole nother week!!!! The boys are staying down here and we leave with Ladybug on Tuesday morning! The boys won’t return until the following Monday!!!

Tot School ~ Life School

~Krash is currently 38 months old~
There was no official Tot School for us, however K had a wonderful week filled with Life School!! He got to go to his first VBS at our church, We had a mission team made up of some of our best friends from down south and their kids!!! They led an awesome 4 day VBS and Krash loved it!!!

He also got to ride on a “train” which is really the El/Subway, but he calls it a train and LOVES it!!!
We traveled down south on Friday and he got to go swimming at my parent’s house right away…He has loved spending time with both sets of grandparents and his cousins and aunt and uncle!!! Here he is with my mom, “Nanee”…
We will be here for another week and then the boys might get to stay an additional week by themselves!!! They are in heaven!!!!

Blown Away

I am often left speechless by comments, emails and general support from people I have never met in real life. Blogging will do that to you. I never knew that when I began, but have since learned what a blessing it is and that so many of you are truly friends and an incredible part of my life. I sit in awe of an amazing God who just knows how to bring the right people together online at the perfect time (some of you know exactly what I mean, don’t you?).

One of those speechless moments happened this morning when I read this on my blogging friend Tara’s blog. You may know Tara as the creator of the amazing Itty Bitty Bookworm Curriulum, I know her as an online buddy, who I have gotten to know via email, and might even get to meet in real life soon!

I am actually reviewing her wonderful curriculum right now for our upcoming 1000 Subscriber Celebration and I am VERY impressed with it. Stay tuned for more thoughts on that! In a nutshell, I think it’s great!

Tara is generously donating 10% of all sales between now and August 3, 2009 to go towards the purchase of the Redemption House!!!!

Thank You Tara!!!!!!

 

Distracted

I guess it’s next to impossible to stay focused when you have this looking up and cooing at you…
