Silly Boy!

This is what Nick came out in after Dave asked him to go put his underwear back on. I guess I should move the underwear drawer from the top to the bottom. :> Hope everyone is having a great week. We met with Drew's reading teacher and found out that he is doing better than we thought, but he still has some areas that we need to continue working on. Dave has been working with him each night here at home to help him. It is a great feeling to see that all that effort is paying off. Please continue to keep our family in your prayers. Drew is really trying so hard and we want him to be successful and really love school. We are hoping that this is just an immaturity issue and that he will grow out of it. Thanks! Love, Heather

He's such a Big Boy!

Watching Drew play Mario Kart. We are in the beginning stages of potty training, hence the nakedness.
" I love wearing big boy underwear."

" I'm so cool now that I have big boy undies on."

Nick in his big boy undies. Not sure why he has his hands down there. Crazy boy!

I've waited to blog about this because I really wanted Nick to be completely potty-trained before. Nick has been using the big boy potty for 3 and 1/2 weeks now and I am happy to report that we are fully potty trained. Now hopefully I'm not jinxing myself, but he has been dry at night and nap time for 5 days now. Yeah! It is really exciting to have all the boys potty-trained, but sad, as this is my last one that I will potty-train. Oh, but the excitement of not having to change a diaper far out ways the sadness. :) Here are some pics of Nick. Enjoy! The other boys are doing well. Drew is going to be celebrating his 7th birthday this coming Friday. I can't believe I have a 7 year old. He is pretty excited about his birthday party. Stay tune for a blog about the party. Joel is doing great. He is active as ever. I still have to remind him that jumping is for the floor only and not the couch for bed. He has couch privileges taken away on some occasions because he constantly jumps. I think it is time for a trampoline. All the boys are so much fun and so loving. They got the WII for Christmas and so that has been the source of their entertainment a lot this winter. However, they are really ready for the warm weather so they can be outside.

We are excited to be traveling with Mary and Anna to Florida for Spring Break. Drew wore his Hawaiian shirt all day the other day because he was so excited about going to Florida. He was sad that daddy and Uncle Tony were not going, but was okay once I told him he could call them daily. :) He keeps telling everyone that we are going, but daddy and Uncle Tony have to stay home and work. Such a thoughtful little guy.

Well I hope everyone has a great week. Love, Heather
