This guy turns one today! I can't believe it's already been a year. He is already walking well and into everything. He's always ready with a smile and a snuggle. His favorite word to say is "Whoa", and we love hearing him say it. His favorite playmate is Jada and he loves when she holds him. Happy Birthday Jackson!

The weather has been nice lately so the kids have been spending more time outside. We have also been keeping up with school.
Josiah is halfway through second grade. He is doing very well and his reading has improved tremendously. He loves reading anything wildlife related, as long as it's non-fiction. He loves facts and learning all about certain animals. Sharks and snakes are among his favorites.
Jada is has started first grade and is doing excellent in math. It's by far her best subject. Sometimes she will even answer Josiah's math problems. She also LOVES holding Jackson, and Jackson loves it when she holds him. She is really good with him.
Jada turned Six in Dec.
Juliet has learned to write her name. She writes it on EVERYTHING! Floors, counter tops, toys, paper etc.
Jameson is doing well. I'm thinking of starting Juliet and him in the same grade. He is busy and almost always happy. I haven't started any formal schooling with him yet.
Jackson is such a delight. He is one of our earliest walkers. He rarely crawls now and is all over the place. We just moved him into his own crib and he has made the transition smoothly.

We have been super busy! It has been a while since I have updated this blog. I really wish Iwas better at it. It is so nice to have memories written down.
We have had a little getaway that was really nice. We needed to get to town for some over due appointments and family time. The kids had dental appointments and Justin and I had eye exams. None of the kids had cavities! We also went to the zoo and aquarium. In all it was a great trip.
We have been busy with school lately! Josiah is almost half way through second grade, and Jada is well into first grade. They are both doing very well. Some days are harder than others, but such is life.
Juliet is eager to start school with Josiah and Jada so she gets to work on preschool stuff while they work on their school work. She is such a sweet girl.
Jameson is all over the place! I know every mom thinks she has the smartest, cutest, best child, but I really do feel like Jameson has a higher IQ. I know others that know him feel the same. I would like to get him tested when he gets a bit older.
Jackson is growing so fast. It seems he is growing quicker than the others did. He should be walking with in the month. He is cruising all over and is able to stand on his own. He has two bottom teeth coming in which are proving to be rather painful for him. He is still a very happy pleasant baby!

I have moved everybody into one room while we do school work. Everybody sits at the dinning room table during school. It takes us all morning with breaks to get through the core subjects. It's going well so far.
The kids have been helping me with the garden this year. The like o help cut the ends off the beans. They all get scissors and cut away. It's actually very helpful.
We have been having a great summer!

Jada loves Jackson. She has learned that she is strong enough to carry him, which freaks me out every time I catch her carrying him around. She's the first one to volunteer to play with Jackson when I need someone to keep him entertained. She talks to him in a super high pitched voice that kills me. It really sweet.
I took this picture when he lost his top tooth. The next day he lost one of his lower teeth, which is good because it was getting crowded. This makes a total of four teeth.
