I really haven’t done so hot at updating this blog. I truly don’t have a lot to update because we haven’t done much. We’ve had another round of sickness hit all of us (dreaded stomach bug), and are hopefully all well now.
The weekend before this past one was our big school carnival fundraiser. It rained and was cold and not a great weather day for it but the kids still had fun while we were there. They got their faces painted and loved it.
This was Reed’s last photo as a 1 year old!
Reed had a good birthday! We celebrated that morning with before he proceeded to have an epic meltdown on our way into school. I left him screaming in the corner, so that was a fun start to the day. =/
They celebrated in his class with cupcakes and he was SO cute when they sang to him. He held his head down like he was embarrassed but he had the BIGGEST grin on his face.
That night we planned to celebrate with his favorite food, pizza. We ended up doing it at my grandma’s house with an extra set of aunts/uncles/cousins and he enjoyed himself. :) It’s so hard to believe my baby is two!
He once again loved being sang to but was a little embarrassed by it!
Zach had a marching competition yesterday. After YEARS of him trying to rebuild the program at his school, he FINALLY earned superior ratings in ALL categories. I am SO SO SO proud of him and his tireless work and this group of kids. They were so excited, as they should be!
Today is a VERY exciting day. I’m actually taking the day off work and heading to NWA to be there when my brother and Leslie welcome sweet baby Caroline! Stephen has always been one of my closest friends, and when he and Leslie started dating, we became fast friends also. I’m so excited to be able to be there to meet my sweet niece after she arrives!
Maybe things will slow down for us and we can get back to regularly scheduled events and posts around here!
