1st Day of School

I know, I know, what about Judah's birthday? Well I haven't written it yet and I don't want to rush it. So you'll have to wait. Don't worry, I'll have it this week...maybe..

So on to the first day of school.

Judah, Josiah, and Avrah started school today at their new school 

This year they are going to Discovery School of Tulsa which is a charter school and if you want to learn more you can click here.

This year Judah is starting the 6th grade. 


I can't believe it.

Josiah is starting 3rd Grade

He asked his teacher at orientation if they would be working with negative numbers, she said they would some, and he was very excited. When asked why he was so excited he said 
"I just love negative numbers they are so random"

Avrah will be starting 1st grade.

poor baby girl was sick today, stupid stomach bug ruining her first day of school.
but I'll be sure to get her picture in her uniform on her first day.

These guys had a GREAT first day and from everything they said they are really going to have a wonderful year.

Oh and Hosea and Micah  start Pre-K Thursday

Avrah Grace

My baby girl is 6 today! 

This morning when she woke up this is what her room looked like

That is 75 balloons, blown up with love and smuggled into her room while she slept

As is our family ritual I took her to have birthday donuts

and talked to her about the past year and the year to come, 
her goals, her dreams.

She wants to be a dancer, a singer, an actress.
She wants to compete in the win a gold medal in the Olympics

for BOTH

running and swimming!

She also wants to be a mom, 
(but only after she has received her medals)
If she has girls she wants to name them Bella and Butterfly,
she has no idea what she would name a boy.
Also she does NOT want twins.

The thing she is most looking forward to about turning 6 is going to school.
She is going to a new school this year and will be in the 1st grade.

Because technology is awesome we were able to Skype with Aunt Anna and Baby Ayla

I think Ayla was showing Avrah where her new tooth is coming in.

and now for something I wrote last night, while thinking about my baby growing up.

How Many?

The countdown has started
She won’t need me forever
One day she will be able to do it
Sometimes you don’t know when the last one will be
Sometimes we let time rush on by,
The moment slips through our fingertips
If we are lucky, we get to see it coming
Bittersweet as it may be
We can enjoy those little moments
For we know we won’t have them forever

How many?

How many more times will I get:
To scrub her little body
To wash her hair for her
To comb out the tangles
To put it in a sloppy braid before bed?

How many more times:
Will she come and sit on my lap
Will she ask me to play a game with her
Will she want to help me cook?

When this chapter ends, another will begin
I will find new ways to bond with you Baby Girl
I will find ways to let you know:
I’ll always be here for you,
Loving you,
Cheering you on,
Encouraging you,
Being a safe haven for you in this storm that is life.

Ill not be sad when the countdown is over
I’ll not cheer it on in anticipation either.

Happy 6th Birthday Avrah. 
I love you!

Hosea and Micah

Soooo tomorrow is my Princess's birthday, and I just realized I hadn't blogged about Hosea and Micah's birthday yet...yeah such a bad blogger.. anyway. Here is their birthday blog. Enjoy


Already! Man that time just flies.

As is our birthday ritual I took the little guys 
(gee that isn't going to work for too much longer)
out to for birthday donuts for breakfast.

Micah chose Spider-man 
(they already started eating when I remembered to grab some pictures)

Hosea chose Hello Kitty

They both said they wanted to be power rangers when they grow up


Hosea wanted to be the green one 
Micah wanted to be the white one

Thank you Netflix for introducing shows that were on when I was a kid to my kids.

New things they have learned this year:

They started taking Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in February

they have now earned two stripes on their belt.

Another thing that has happened this year, as their language skills have started to develop they refer to themselves as "we", even if only one of them is talking.
"We want to watch Power Rangers" 
"We want to have a snack"
One of them talks for both of them, it doesn't matter if the other is even in the room it is still "we", 
and when the other one is in the room, he never argues and says "no I don't"

They love to crack each other up, and as much as they fight and don't get along they can flip a switch from screaming to laughing instantly. These guys are truly clowns, they love to make people laugh.

I can not wait to see what new things this year has in store for them!
