Nathan started preschool, or as he would say
kindergarten," the day after the girls started kindergarten! He was so excited and such a big boy!! He did awesome the first day, but the next couple of days were pretty rough! I think he realized that he was by himself and not with the girls and he had a rough time dealing with being apart from his sisters. I felt horrible leaving him at preschool when he was crying, because as some of you know Nathan doesn't just cry he has a temper! But we got through it and thanks to a little bribery(great mom huh?)he is doing great. We made a chart and Nate gets to put a sticker on it when he gets home if he didn't cry. When he gets 10 stickers he gets the new Batman Lego game for the computer. Expensive bribery, but hey it is working! Now he is so proud of himself when I go pick him up. He is the teacher's helper and he always tells me how he is a good friend to all the littler kids. I love him so much and I am so proud of him for being brave!


I can't believe my little babies are now in kindergarten!! Brianna and Brooklyn started school last week and they were so cute. They are both so excited that they actually get to do homework like the big kids. We will see how long that feeling lasts!! The girls are in the same afternoon class and they love their teacher and classmates.
The first day of school was emotional for mom though! I thought I was going to cry because they acted so big, but they were excited so I had to be happy for them! Now every morning they wake up excited to go to school, and they have a hard time waiting for it to finally be the afternoon. My little girls are growing up so fast. It is hard to believe that 5 years ago we were praying that they would grow quickly in the NICU and now Dylan and I would like time to slow down. I am so proud of my two big kindergartners!! I love you Brianna and Brooklyn!


I am apologizing now to everyone who has been checking our blog page that has not been updated since April!! I am really going to do better! I now have three hours of free time while my cute kids are at school, so hopefully I can do this blog thing a little better. My cute sister in law, Amanda, made our blog page for us and I have not done well at keeping it updated, so we will give it a try!!
