KID UPDATE

A little about our kiddos




Savanah is at the top of her class. She is very responsible little girl. She does her homework when she gets home. She is also very observant. For instance, if her class is learning about bats, she runs homes and finds her bat book, then reads all about bats, and takes the book to school to share. This week they were learning about spiders and she really wanted to find one and put in a jar to share with her class. We were able to find one and she was so excited.

She is taking Piano lessons and loves it. We asked her what she wanted to do this year. I thought for sure she would continue with dance but she checked out an instrument book from the library and decided she wanted to play the piano. Thanks to my mom we have a piano for her to practice on. She sent it down for Savanah when Hanna and Chris came here. THANKS MOM!!!! She is so good at it already. I thought it would be hard, but so far she has done great.

Savanah is our kind hearted child. At parent teacher conferences her teacher kept saying how kind she was to everyone in the class and how everyone loved her. We are so proud of her. She is such a sweet girl and always concerned for others. She never forgets to pray at night to "Please help mommy to not be sick. I hate to see her sad and sick. Help our baby to grow healthy and mommy too." It chokes me up every time.




Caleb is also loving school. He can recite tons of rhymes and poems and has already moved on to "sight word recognition. " He has made lots of friends too. He enjoys learning and loves both of his teachers. He loves the day that mommy helps in his class, he walks in so proud. It is cute.

He is such a boy. Anything that Beau is doing he wants to do. He wants to go paint balling with dad, dirt bike ride with dad, four wheel with dad, work in the yard with dad, do anything that his daddy is doing. He loves animals books. Each night before bed each child picks one book to read and he always chooses something about reptiles, dinosaurs, or insects. He is fascinated by bugs and is such a animal lover.

Caleb is very sweet to his sisters. He is a lot like mommy and has to eat a lot. As long as there is food in his belly, he is happy! He is also the most flexible boy I have ever seen! Sometime I will post pictures...it is scary!:) We love him so much and couldn't imagine our lives without him.



Kennedy is our cute little monster. She has been the baby for so long that she still gets spoiled. She has such a lively personality. She loves her daddy too. She stands guard at the door so he can't leave in the mornings. She loves to jump on the trampoline, play dress up, get into my makeup non-stop, have her hair done, change her clothes several thousands times a day. She is definitely a girlie girl, but also as rough as a tom boy.

She loves Thursdays when we get to volunteer in Caleb's class. She packs her backpack and sits and colors the whole time. She loves school and thinks she is big when she gets to go. She also loves the DI as much as I do. She asks all the time to go there. HA!

Kennedy loves her brother and sister and will do anything to please them. She loves the endless piggy backs they give her. She is such a Cutie Pie. She has the best vocabulary for a child her age and can carry on conversations like you wouldn't believe! She is also very sweet and loving. I don't know what we would do without her! We love her so much!


Also, I forgot to show you this video of the Savanah telling Caleb we were having a baby. Listen carefully to his response. It is hilarious! Also his face when he stands up is classic. Sorry it is kind of dark!

That's cute, but you should inform him that even pregnant you could never be fat! Oh, he must have meant phat! Okay, stupid, I know. It's been a really long week.

The scrapbook pages need to be in a JPEG format to share them on your blog. Email me at hummer72@gmail.com and I can explain it. What program are you using for scrapbooking?
