My How time flies

It has been so long since I have updated this. It was not until I was at family Christmas here in Portland that my sister politely informed me that I have been slacking on the blogging. I have thought so many times to get on and do it then I am off doing something else. I have tons of pictures to update you on but for now this is the best I can do.

He is doing great. He is going to be 6 in a week and I can hardly believe it. He is loving school and is doing well.He loves library day so he can get a new book on dinosaurs. That is totally what he is into these days. He also loves anything about rockets and spaceships. It is so fun to watch him grow and learn and absorb so much from school. I love to go in and help in the classroom I think it is a great way for parents to show their kids they truly care about them and their education.

He is our mouthy one.He can come back at you with a one liner just as you get it off your tongue. He talks with his eyes and has the greatest expressions. He is loving school and always has to know who is bring snack for the day. Just yesterday I was sitting with him and my mom at the table and she asked him to write his name and he did. This was the first time I had seen him do this.Note to self never underestimate your children. He loves his books at night and three snuggles before bed.

He is our one who prefers to play by himself at times and is very sensitive. He gets his feeling hurt very easily and has the saddest cry. He likes to snuggle when he is ready and loves have alone time with mom and dad especially at night before bed. He likes to have his book and then cuddle for a few minutes. If he does not get his cuddles then he does not go to bed very well. His teacher at school tells me that he is always keeping tabs on Nate at school making sure he is in the right spot at the right time.

We are doing well. We have been very busy getting our hose on the market to sell. We have bought a lot and as soon as our house sells we will build. The lot is close to where we are now. We are excited about this adventure. I have taken on a new job as of Nov. 15th. I am now working in and OBGYN office which has been great no weekends or holidays and I am home at night to get the kids to bed and read and snuggle. I am still staying on with the hospital as needed because I do enjoy it. So yes we have been busy but that keeps us out of trouble.
