Student of the Month: April

I received a note home from school in Jordan's backpack.  It was from his PE teacher saying that Jordan was chosen as Student of the Month for April by him.  I was so excited for him, but couldn't say anything because his PE teacher wanted it to be a surprise at the assembly today.

At 2:00 Diana, Melody and I arrived at the school and went into the multipurpose room.  The kids filed in for the assembly, and the 2nd graders sang some songs from Sussical Jr. the musical.  Cute stuff.

Then it was on to announcing the Students of the Month.  Jordan was the last name called.  He jumped up from off the floor, and nearly skipped over to the principal.  Once there he stopped and raised his hands in the air triumphantly!  He was beaming with happiness.

I took some pictures but for some reason my photography skills were non-exsistant, and Jordan wouldn't hold still so this was the best picture I could get of him.

I let him have McDonalds for dinner as celebration for getting Student of the Month.  Here's a closeup of the medal the school gives out:

I'm so happy for him, and his doing so well in school.  Crazy to think that 1st grade is just around the corner.  Melody starting Kindergarten is just around the corner as well.  YIKES!  Guess it's time for another baby....NOT!!!

Everyone Knows it's Windy

Holy Wind Batman is all I can say.  It's blowing so hard, I'm afraid some trees might fall.  Hopefully it dies down soon, so I can enjoy spring for a few days longer before the summer heat hits hard.

Nothing of real importance going on around here.  I started working out on the 19th, and started eating healthier as well.  I'm doing fairly well, though I'm craving sweets like mad.  Maybe I'll need to save up some calories so I can indulge with a sonic blast or blizzard from Dairy Queen this weekend .  We'll see though.

I can't believe school is almost over for Jordan.  Only 5 weeks left, CRAZY!  Guess I should get busy and figure out what  activities I can do with the kiddos so they aren't at each other's throats or drive me crazy.  Any ideas would be most helpful.

Nothing Much

Really nothing much has been happening around here, hence the no postings for a few weeks.  

Jordan had spring break last week, and though it was good to have him home and I was able to sleep in, he and Melody fought a good portion of the week.  I think Melody is spoiled having mom and dad to herself for most of the day.  

It's hard to believe that summer break is just around the corner.  I'm not looking forward to the seemingly endless days of HOT, but that's why I have a sister with a pool!!  

I'm just patiently waiting for school to be over so we can go family camping, and then plan what to do this summer with the kids.
