Report Card Time

My little man got A-B honor roll! Although I not sure if it is good thing or not. For the past two years, his teachers REALLY challenged him. He always did well in his subjects, but got C's in handwriting all last year. His teacher said she wanted to push him to be more creative. This year the day Wyatt came home and said "mom, I REALLY like my teacher this year!" I said that's great, what makes you REALLY like her? Wyatt says with a great big grin "cause she don't give homework!" I am kinda happy, but it concerns me....I asked the teacher to make sure. Sure homework. They decided that the children do enough in school and the afternoon is family time. I am all about family time:) She just asks that they read "something (road signs, recipes, or whatever they want to)" He must be learning something at school because he just corrected me while typing this:) Stay tuned.....Brittney and ian get report cards Monday. (Those teachers must have been bribed to wait until AFTER Halloween)

Head's Annual Halloween Party

This year it was decided to do a Fall Festival instead of the traditional Halloween Party. In the past we have always done a Haunted House...I hope next year we go back to the Haunted House. The kids had ALOT of fun with the dunking booth and bounce house. There was chili and hot dogs with lots of treats for everyone. I loved seeing all the kids "work" their costumes in the parade. It is always so much fun and I love being with all our family. I am thankful to my mom that she continues to build these memories for my children and they were with me.

Sweetest Little Witch I know

Today is my Lovies 12th Birthday! I am so proud to be her mommy. She came into this world at 11:33 a.m. weighing 10 lbs. 10 oz. 22 inches long. She had lots of dark hair and it was really long on top. Britty has turned out to be an amazing young woman and I cherish everyday I spend with her. She is very loving and thoughful. I am excited to see her off into her new journey in Young Women. The presidency welcomed her in yesterday with her favorite...cheesecake. As Primary sang to her, I couldn't help but cry. I love her so much and she is such a special girl. I am thankful to my Heavenly Father that he has allowed me to care for her.

Spalsh into Science

We had an educationally fun time at Wyatt's Splash into Science night at school. The St. John's Water Management gave out all kinds of stuff about saving water and keeping the Earth clean. Wyatt get to "go fishing in the river" (a small plastic pool) to get out all the bad things that pollute the water and harm the water animals. He also got to make an awesome fish t-shirt! The Jax Zoo brought out some animals and taught the kids about them too. Wyatt (and me) had a great time and learned a little something too:)
