The kids

I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything and there are no good excuses.
Stir Fry has started 1st grade and loving it. He does really well at school. He gets 100% on all of his spelling words, and usually gets all of his bonus words right, which they aren't required to know. Most of the time he doesn't need help on his math homework, he might just have questions on the directions. He is reading really well, and almost to where they want first graders to be by the end of the year. We couldn't be prouder of him and how well he's doing and how much he loves school.
Baluga is in preschool 3 days a week and is loves going. She is always so excited to show me what she has done that day. She is learning all the things she will need to know for kindergarten, which I can't believe she is old enough for that. She is such a great helper, and helps me to remember things that i forget to do.
Speedy is becoming more independent and talking more, which is always nice when you can understand them, but sometimes there are things that even I can't translate. He is still full of life. He likes to do what the big kids do, and wants to ride a scooter to school like Stir Fry. He is very good at saying please and thank you even when you least expect it. He definitely not my baby any more. He is a happy kid most of the time, as long as everything is going his way.
We took the kids out a little bit ago to take some pictures and this is some of what we ended up with. These are some fun we took of them throwing leaves, which turned out way fun. It's always nice that the hubby can go out and take their pictures and Baluga loves to pose for the camera, and Speedy likes to "cheese" and see his picture afterwards. They are definitely getting big and growing too fast.
