I haven't been very good at taking pictures lately, and thus I feel like I have not had anything to journal about on my blog. I've resolved to do better since I love being able to turn this into a family book at the end of the year.
Here's a picture I snapped in January of all the boys napping together--a very rare occurrence!
We've been taking afternoon walks together most days since Carter LOVES to ride his scooter. He's pretty darn fast too!
This past week I did a preschool field trip to The Downtown Aquarium which Caleb joined us for.
Bryson had a great time on the carousel!
Family Goal for 2015: We are working month by month to memorize The Living Christ. It is quite lengthy, and I'm so impressed with how well the boys are doing!
Updates on the family
Caleb: He's still excelling in school and piano. He's been on the all A honor roll each 9 weeks at school, and the subject where he scores near perfect each time is math. We just discovered the other day that Caleb has the same talent I do on the piano! I haven't met any other person who can do this (except my older brother I think?). If you play any white note on the piano, Caleb can tell you what it is immediately--no thinking involved. The sharps and flats, as for me, take a little more thought. Soccer starts up in March!
Carter: His reading skills are improving a lot in preschool. He is the comic relief in the family, constantly making us laugh. Instead of riding in the double stroller to drop Caleb off at school every morning, he now rides his scooter. Even though I run with the stroller, I can't keep up with him. He's so fast! He asks every day how many more days till his birthday (March 30). We're gearing up for trying a season of soccer and getting ready to start piano.
Bryson: He's made significant progress with his speech, which has been a concern that he might need speech therapy. He is obsessed with the song, "Let it Go," not because we watch that movie frequently, but because the girls in preschool will break out in that song regularly. He does fairly well in preschool and wants to be included as part of the class. He copies what the other kids do for each of our activities.
The company Matt works for is directly affected by the drop in oil price, and there have been many lay-offs. We're grateful that he still has a job. I'm staying very busy with church service and teaching preschool. When I do have free time, you'll find me curled up with a good book!
