Big Changes!

Big changes at our house, and I haven't had time to blog about them!

On Monday, November 8th, Logan started public school!!! It was a hard decision. Things were going ok with homeschooling, however Logan and I kept butting heads. So after our trip to Texas for Joanna's wedding and a visit with our friend Tricia, we decided to go tour the school and let Logan make the decision. He decided that he wanted to go. So we got him signed up, and he started school the next Monday.

Logan really LOVES going to school. He has a wonderful teacher. He likes riding the bus because he does not have to wear a seatbelt! I'm not liking walking him to the bus stop because it is SOOO cold!! Today, he walked by himself to the bus stop, but I was outside and watched him. He did a good job. The only problem with him going to kindergarten is I have to pick him up at 11:35! Sometimes it is hard packing everyone up and going and getting him, but we are getting into a routine! He is doing an excellent job at reading. I am so proud of him!

Ivy has been crawling for almost 3 months!! She is pulling up on everything. She is actually eating solids (YEA!!) and gaining some weight. She will walk if she holds your hands. Can't believe she is 8 months old TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! She brings such joy to our lives! She is a pretty happy baby. She loves watching the boys play, and they love playing with her.

Tucker wants to go to school like Logan. He likes trying to read things too. Haven't been working with him too much because we have been so busy. Trying to get into a better routine with the little 3 while Logan is at school, but I tend to try to get lots done because I only have 3 instead of 4 kids!

Miles is onery as ever!!! He throws temper tantrums worse than I can ever remember the other 2 doing. But he can turn them off, just as fast! He has no desire to be potty trained!!! Hopefully he will get better with that soon!

Been wanting to update more often, but just don't make the time!!

Lots of fun stuff!

It has been a while since I have written.

Ivy is 5 months old and crawling!
Miles is 2, and is talking a ton more!
Tucker is 4, and is a ham!
Logan got glasses!! Yes, you read that right, Logan has glasses. We have been doing kindergarten. He has been doing pretty good. He is reading some 3 letter words, and doing a great job!

Logan lost his 2nd tooth today! It has been really loose the last couple days. I asked him if I could pull it out he said "it's too slippery". But I asked him if I could try...and he let me. And it just pulled right out. I put it in a baggie to show Greg when he gets home. He keeps on feeling the hole with his finger. So cute!!

Lost Tooth

Greg, Logan, and Tucker went and helped at at church for a work day. (Miles and I stayed home. I am on light duty due to pregnancy, and Miles wouldn't have been much help). When they got home, Logan had a loose tooth. He didn't complain too much.

Yesterday (Monday), while we were eating lunch, Logan said my tooth is gone. And he swallowed his 1st loose tooth! I can't believe he is old enough to loose teeth!!!
