New Kid on the Block

Our neighborhood is full of kids these days.  I'm talking kids everywhere. Kids on bikes.  Kids on scooters.  Kids running.  Kids dribbling basketballs.  Kids hitting tennis balls.  They. Are. Everywhere.  My kids love nothing as much as playing outside. 

I went outside today to watch the kids play because there were so many out there.  I was sitting with a couple of moms watching the madness.  There was one kid I didn't know.  One of the other mom's didn't know him either.  He was a mess.  If we said to get out of the road, he went in the road.  If we said run, he would walk.  He was fairly difficult and even disrespectful to me a couple of times when I was getting my kids to come inside.  

So, over dinner, I pointed out some of the things he did and told the kids I didn't want to ever  see them doing that.  And, apparently I flippantly said "I'm not a fan of that kid!"

Well, fast forward an hour and we went out for a walk after dinner.  Micah was on his bike.  Said kid started biking towards us and says "Hi, Micah!"  Without skipping a beat, Micah yells "MY MOM IS NOT A FAN OF YOU!"

I. Died.  

And, now I need to move.

Micah's Kindergarten Zoo Field Trip

Field trips aren't my jam.  Does that make me a bad mom to say that?  Oh, well.  It's true.  I don't enjoy field trips.  But, this zoo trip was a lot of fun this year.  The weather was perfect.  This class of friends is super sweet.  So many of the parents are our friends.  It was just an easy and really fun day.  

And, at what point do little boys quit holding hands with their friends?  It's the sweetest thing to see.  

You know you've got a good chaperone when he starts a game of Simon Says while waiting for a train ride.  

Aja skipped out on this field trip so Dave got to go.  Doesn't he look happy to hang out with us all day??

5th & Kinder "Holiday" Parties

Enjoy these TWO pictures of Jonah from his Christmas party because they are all I have.  Two photos.  That's what happens when you get to 5th grade.  There wasn't an official party for me to attend so I snapped these as I walked by his classroom heading to Micah's class party.  
Our school district went to uniforms this year but they all got to wear pajamas on this last day of school before the holiday.  
Micah has a matching grinch top to this Pottery Barn pajama set but it was hot that day.  So, we put him in a t-shirt instead.  

Aja was in Holder's class for his party that morning so Miller was little sad when he looked up and saw all of us there but his mommy wasn't there.  Poor guy!

She made it...
Actually, she came in right after he cried because she wasn't there. I told him she was helping in Holder's class and was on her way.  

And, this right here might be why their teacher was smiling as she hugged them goodbye that day! :-)
