Fondue Night

The kids love to read the Geronimo Stilton books. They are chapter books about a mouse who is a newspaper reporter. The books are funny and a bit educational. Some of the books even have recipes in them. A recent one we read had a recipe for cheese fondue. While I didn't follow the recipe from the book, we did have fondue night! The kids loved it!

Kaitlyn turns 4!

I can't believe my littlest turned 4 already. It makes me a little sad that she is growing up, but NO, I do not want another baby. She loves puzzles, books, board games and of course - stuffed animals.

The kids are both loving school.

Jacob is in first grade and so far (I know we are only 12 days into school) he is doing great and loving it. He thinks one lunch lady doesn't like him since she keeps moving him. He seems to be ignoring the fact that he is not behaving each time he is moved :)

He is all boy and loves his tools and gadgets. He has fallen in love with the big pencil sharpener at school. I have had to send more pencils to school already - he has sharpened them down to nothing!

He just joined Cub Scouts - his first meeting was last night. He is so excited and lots of his friends are in it too.

Kaitlyn is in 4 year old preschool. 3 mornings a week (8-10:30 - what do I do with all my time) She has a few new kids in her class this year and is enjoying them all. She is so social! She loves to paint and comes home covered with it (even on her back). She misses Jacob when he is in school all day - her little play buddy.

She learned to ride her bike with no training wheels this summer. She wants to start tackling wheelies next.

Roller Skating

We took the kids roller skating for the first time. I couldn't believe how expensive it was!! $6 a person to get in, then another $3.50 a person for skates. It just seemed a bit much to me. We all had a great time. Jacob was starting to get the hang of it. Kaitlyn preferred skating on the carpet where she fell less often!
