Ivan's Education

Well we did it. We had our first year of "official" school. I loved every minute of it. There is just something about the school setting that I really enjoy. It was so fun to see Ivan in it. I loved his teacher and loved helping out in class and loved taking him and picking him up and just loved anything I could do over there. 

We also loved watching Ivan grow. We weren't really sure how he was going to do this year, since he's a pretty reserved/home body kid. He did great. We are so proud of all the ways you have grown this year Ivan. 

 There are 15 little boys in our neighborhood Ivan's age. Not all of them go to the same school, but 9 of them graduated with Ivan in the AM session.  (missing Eli and Corbin)

 Just a few randoms….
 Threw this one in there so I can remember the one time I was crafty. I could't believe myself as I actually homemade something for his teacher and student teacher. They turned out cute.

We got to go over and change out their reading books every thursday. Emery was a pain in my rear. She wouldn't let me carry her down the hall and so it took forever just to reach his class to pick up the books. Then when we got to the room to exchange them she was bratty to all the other kids in there. Kinda embarrassing at times.

Mothers day 2014

Sunday, May 4, 2014

I kinda get sad when I get on our blog for some reason. I like blogging and I plan to continue, but I feel sad cuz no one else does. I feel sad that things move and change so quickly and so blogs are like a thing of the past. Everyone has moved on to bigger and better things. I feel bad that I'm one of those old people who have a hard time embracing change. It's kinda like I want to still use an old slate board and chalk or something. I'm sitting in my bed right now just wasting time before I fall asleep and so I went down the list of friends blogs and there are like 3 who still update. I miss the olden days (2 yrs ago) when it was fun to read my morning news paper (blogs). Now I quickly scan through FB and feel sad for blogs.
