Darrian started first grade! I can't believe he's almost 6 (tomorrow), times moves so quickly. He's ordering his own food in the cafeteria, "hanging out" with his friends, and having a great time learning. His teacher described him as a "angel" at back to school night, and he's doing so good in class. We love his school and school community.
Time goes so quickly. Quicker than I ever imagined it would. Everyone tells you when you have kids that time really takes off, you really can't wrap your head around how much it does till it happens.
Darrian "graduated" kindergarten, and this week started first grade. All day class, the whole campus for him to get used to. He's doing great so far though. Just 2 weeks till he turns 6 year old. More than 1/2 way to 10, that just boggles my mind.
Quincy and Miles are quickly rolling towards 3! My twins are almost 3!! How did this happen ?! They are a lot of fun, and seeing Darrian with them melts my heart. They have very different taste and likes. They also adore each other too. They know they are partners in crime last night Miles had a diaper rash and I decided to give him a warm bath. He was in some pain and Quincy was so concerned. Walking with him, rubbing his back. It's really sweet to see so much compassion between 2 year olds. After Miles got out of the bath he said so sweetly "thank you incee". I get to live these moments a million times a day and I am so thankful for that.
We have swam all summer long, all the boys love the water. Darrian still swims really good, actually this year he mastered diving an swimming in the 8 ft. side. The twins with their life vest are independent and all over the pool.
Our niece Chloe and Keith's sister have been visiting for the summer. They leave next week. It's been fun seeing the kids together.
I'll do some photo dumps of our adventure. Hope you all had a great summer :)
I haven't posted here in a long time. It makes me sad. I have the application on my phone because truth is I am never near a computer for personal use these days. I still don't post. I think I always think I have to catch up, and my brain shuts off.
Why do I care if I don't post?
This blog has been a diary of sorts for me. It recorded the last (gulp) seven years of our life. I have visited it countless times to check on facts, to see what we were doing a year or two ago. It's been our baby book, our life documentation. So I want to get back to it. One post at a time..
Quincy got some of the cold going around and we spent a couple days in the hospital with him. So hard to see your baby sick, and staying in the hospital. Luckily he was well quickly and for that I'm thankful.
My Niners made it to the Superbowl.Hard to see them loose. Since it was the day before my 33rd birthday I was hoping they would gift me a win. In the end they have come so far in two short seasons and hopefully these are building blocks.
My birthday was lowkey. I usually stretch the celebrations out a bit. Devyn took me out for dinner on the Saturday before, then some friends came over to watch the game on Sunday. Monday I worked and then Keith cooked us dinner. He got me a cake, and cards from the boys. It's so funny the kids are more excited than anyone else, and made us relight the candles and sing happy birthday 3 times. Miles calls cupcakes "Happy Happy" :)
So we are off to a running start in 2013. I'll do another update on Darrian's first report card, and we start
Little League next week. Hope your all having a great 2013 so far.
So I want to blog more this year. We will see how that goes. Here is a Christmas Recap a month late :)
We had a nice quiet Christmas. I had vacation, and we spent a lot of time just enjoying our little family. This was the first year we did a fake tree. So happy we did. So much easier, and did not have to worry about it drying out and becoming a fire hazard.
Darrian was VERY into Christmas this year. Kids make it so fun. The twins were also more aware of what was going on. They loved the Christmas tree lights.
On the present front :
Miles loved his cars
Quincy loved the Jake and the Pirates ship
Both loved this cube with beads
Darrian loved his ninjago Lloyd and scooter
We went to church, Quincy enjoyed the singing. My favorite tradition is loading up in the car, getting hot chocolate, and driving around looking at Christmas lights.
We enjoyed quiet relaxed meals at home, and family time. It was perfect.
Together since 1998, We-do's on a lovely June day in 2003. This blog was created to show what life has been like after we were married, and then after we were blessed with our son Darrian born on 9/14/07. We were shocked to hear we were expecting twin boys, and welcomed Quincy and Miles into our family on 12/10/10. It's been a lot of fun, thanks for joining us on the ride.
