Alex went to Grandpa's for a week. The house was just too quite. We were glad to have him home on the 5th.
Jessi has become a fish this year. She swims daily in our pop up pool. Our backyard looks like a kiddy park with a petting zoo.
We are counting down the time till graduation and I can get my life back and maybe take a picture or two. You never know I might scrapbook again.
Even though they only had a week of school left the 4th graders had this huge project to do.
Alex had to research someone important in American history. He picked the former president Polk, (he thought he was picking POKE, because it was a funny name).
and like all good 4th graders he waited till the night before it was do, to tell us he needed to do an art project to go with his presentation
Of course Mike loves it when Alex homework becomes his. Well after much debated Alex picked sculpture as the art. He ask for Dad's help and this is what Mike whipped out in about 10 minutes from a picture of the web. I was amazed at the ability Mike had and of course Alex helped by telling his Dad what he wanted on the sculpture.
I think I want Mike to do a bust of each of the kids next
Everyone had such a good time, even though it was supposed to be a girl only party, we ended up with more guys than gals (that is a very long story).
Jessi is still very tiny only 34 lbs and barely 42 inches, but she is so full of personality. She is very thoughtful. She is very quick to tell you how pretty you are (regardless to how you really look). She is very good for the soul.
Jessi is very hard to buy for because she only wants what she already has. So after some pressure from Mike the new big trampoline was the gift of choice, she spends so much time on it, it is well worth the money. She can now do a forward flip and is learning a back flip.
Oh, if you let the sprinkler run under the trampoline they think they invented a new water ride.
