4 yrs, Already!

It's amazing to me how fast these past 4 yrs have went by... I have watched Logan turn into this amazing, funny, smart, caring little boy. Don't get me wrong he has his moments but for the most part he is amazing :0) Wherever I go people comment on how good/polite he is and it always makes me smile.

Happy 4 years to our family and the Lang family, they traveled at the same time as us, what a GREAT journey we had to our two amazing little guys.

Kindergarten Already, WOW!

I am surely not ready for my baby to spend 35 hrs a week at school... I think it's way to long for a 5 yr old who has a SAHM. Logan is very excited about going. Last week he was a bit scared, after going for package pickup, meet the teacher and pictures the other day he can't wait. In fact, the count down is on :0) He found out his best buddy and his "girlfriend" from Preschool are in his class and he is beyond excited :0)

So we had a great summer and I cannot believe it's over. I guess the older ya get the faster the time goes, bummer because my baby is growing up way to fast :0( We had a great summer, waterparks, beaches, parks, pool parties and Cedar Point, Lots of fun!

This past Saturday my husband decided it would be fun to fall 20 feet. He fractured his back, herniated 2 disc, fractured a couple ribs and took a few staples to his melon. Poor guy I feel so bad for him, he's in terrible pain and is having a hard time getting comfortable. Thank God no head trauma or internal bleeding, he is VERY lucky. Not sure how long he is going to be off work AND he is a pretty difficult patient, LUCKY ME! I hope he makes a full recovery and his back is not messed up forever. I already have pretty bad neck problems, Logan doesn't need two parents with bad backs.

So I will leave with with a few pics of my handsome little man and I will post some more tomorrow of the first day of Kindergarten.

It's been a long time

Boy, what to even say??? Preschool came and went. It seemed like the year started and was over just as fast. Logan did great in school and learned so much. He did have some issues in the beginning, he was fine when I left him but when it came time to pick him up from school he melted down as soon as he seen me. It lasted only a few weeks and then he was fine. After Christmas break he started having issues with me leaving but that only lasted about 2 weeks and he was fine. His teachers loved him and he got a great review at parent teacher conferences. He is reading great and comes up with the funniest things. I have started making him do "homework" every other day so he doesn't forget what he learned in school. I am getting sad about sending him off to kindergarten but that is for a different post.

We have been so busy, we left for vacation the day after Logan got out of school. We have had party after party to go to and lots of other things going on. Logan took a "little Monkeys" class (intro to gymnastics) and now has started to take ice skating lessons. We have went to some community kids picnics in the park with clowns and magicians. Next week he has a week long cooking class to go to and then in 3 weeks he has a week long science class. Yesterday we had about 12 friends over for a pool party. Like I said, on the go, go, go.

I have posted some pics of preschool graduation and the last day of school at the park. There is one from a field trip to the nature center also.

Life is good and Logan is such a blessing. I CANNOT imagine life without him, he is the BEST thing EVER :0) Any ways here are the pics, next I will upload some from our vaca, it was great! If anyone is still reading my blog I hope your summer is as great as ours.

Happy Easter

Went out to my Dad's for and Easter egg hunt. Had a lot of fun but man the wind picked up and the rain started. It was just enough to make it cold and wet but we all managed to have fun. We had two different Easter things going on last weekend but little man woke up on Saturday with a fever and it continued into Sunday so needless to say no pics with the Easter Bunny this year :0(

Have a wonderful Easter!




Me, Logan and my Sister

Wow, Time Goes By So Fast

So, we have been so busy. We are trying to figure out what is best for Logan as far as Kindergarten goes, half day or full day. I REALLY want half day but I will not find out until the end of Feb if they will offer it at Logan's school. I do have the choice to put him in a different school if they don't offer it but I feel uneasy about that to. I don't want to bounce him around from school to school. He is in a free standing pre-school now so if he can't go 1/2 day at his school then he would be in 3 different places before 1st grade and I don't like that. So I guess if they don't have half day at his school we try full day and see how it goes. The half day program is the same as full day they just don't have a lunch and rest time. Gosh, please let there be half day:0)

Last weekend we went and watched Jeff's god-daughter in her dance competition... They rocked, placed 2nd in 2 dances and 1st in the Hip-Hop and then took grad-champs over all, way to go girls!

Logan is doing great. He LOVES school and has made a lot of new friends. He is reading new words everyday and blows me away at how smart he is:0) He started swim class w/one of his friends from school and he loves it even more w/Josh in class with him. We have a few invites to b-day parties for friends from school and then his is next month. I CAN"T BELIEVE MY BABY IS GOING TO BE 5, OMG!

Any ways, things are great on our end...I made a little slide show of our happenings over the last few months...

Something to HELP Haiti

I thought this would be a GREAT way to help a little when it comes to the devastation in Haiti. I copied this off of someones blog so help and do your part today. It will only take a few minutes of your time.

There are hundreds of Haitian orphans who are awaiting final approval for adoptions to families in the U.S. The building in Haiti where the adoptions are processed was destroyed in the earthquake. It may be years before the processing can resume.

However, the U.S. can grant temporary visas to all orphans whose adoptions were pending before the earthquake. With the grant of visas the oprhans could then come to the U.S. to live with their adoptive families, but be classified as "foster care" children until the final paperwork is completed. In granting the visas, the evacuation of the hundreds of orphans stuck in this limbo will free space in Haitian orphanages for the thousands of new orphans that have been created by this emergency. Please note that under U.S. rules, any family that applies to adopt a foreign child must first be certified as a foster care family, so there is a safe-guard system in place to insure that these oprhans who would come here under this plan will be safe.

PLEASE, PLEASE. Contact your U.S. Senators asking that they put pressure on the United States Citizenship and Immigrantion Service (USCIS) to grant "temporary visas" to all Haitian orphans now in orphanges awaiting the completion of their adoption process.

This is a real way to help and it will cost nothing. You can send Emails by going to the website for the United States Senate (http://www.senate.gov/) and finding the links to your two senators' websites.

If you have contacts or friends in any agency of the U.S. government who could push this idea with USCIS, please reach out to them to help, too.
