So Riley, Jesse and I were looking at old pictures on the computer the other day and I found this picture of Joel. He looks just like Jesse (or should I say, Jesse looks just like Joel). It is AMAZING to me!!
Then I started to look at some other pictures and I just had to share these. My little babies are growing!!! I'll have to add some more later, I have to go and pick them up from school.
Have a great day.

- A Harry Potter Bookmark
- A picture of the Wii
- And the cover of the Chronicles Of Narnia DVD
Of course I asked him what were some of the things the other kids brought in, but he seem to not be able to remember.
As for Riley. She has had a great 3 days too. I asked her what her favorite part of the day was and she said "lunch". The first day she ate ALL her lunch. I was very surprised, I have to say because she is a very slow eater. Then the second day half of her sandwich was eaten but her dessert was gone. We already had a talk about eating our lunch first and then the dessert but she said "but Mommy, my teacher said I could eat my dessert". So we had another little talk about, knowing the rules and following them. You knew that Mommy wanted you to eat your sandwich first and then your dessert. So I believe we got that down- today her sandwich and her dessert were eaten. BUT... while I was asking her about her day today. She was telling me she went to PE today and they played with the big parachute, it sounded like she had a lot of fun. So then I brought recess up-I asked if they played outside because it had been raining here all day. And she said "yes, we went outside to play, but I had to sit on the wall for 5 minutes because I was talking during art. I could not believe it, her 3rd day and she was already in a "time out". She did get a smiley face on her paper so I guess Mrs. Walsh didn't think too much of it. But we did have a talk about obeying your teacher. And when you don't obey your teachers you are not obeying Mommy & Daddy. I think she understands that now. We did tell her that we were very proud of her for telling us and we hope that if something like this happens again, she would tell us again. But we trust that it won't:)
That is about it. Now we are all ready for the weekend. My poor JoJo was really having a hard time with the waking up so early. I think he wakes up when Terry wakes Riley up at 6:15am. So today I put him back in bed around 8:30am and he slept until about 10am. I think that really helps.
As for Jesse, he is having a blast! He gets to play on the computer and the WII all by himself. He loves it. And I like it, because I got to clean Joel and Riley's room today and throw things away... without them saying, "NO don't throw that away"!!! And it looks clean now. Jesse actually got to sit on Joel's top bunk bed this morning too playing with his little car. He had so much fun.
One final announcement... I killed my first roach!! OH, I HATE roaches and while I was putting Josiah's clothes away I noticed a HUGE roach on the wall. I called Terry (he is not teaching right now) and was freaking out! My hands got all clammy and my hear started racing. I think I have a major "fear". Terry just kind of laughed and told me he was not going to come home and kill a roach. He said, go get the fly swatter and I'll talk you through it! I really thought I was not going to be able to do it. I even went to the front door to see if any of my neighbors were home, but no luck! So I had to find that courage...and I did. I killed my first roach! But then I had to clean him up!!! So luckily after a lot of pushing and shoving, I got him on the fly swatter and tossed him out the front door. I know, I know... all of you are probably saying: What a whimp. It is just a roach! Get a hold of yourself." But trust me, I have a major fear of roaches.

Terry woke the kids up at 6:15am and they both jumped right up and got dressed. Joel came walking into my bedroom all dressed and ready to go!He was looking so handsome!
After breakfast we got the other two up and put them all in the van.
Riley and her two teachers: Mrs. Walsh and Mrs. Joiner.

Now the next few pictures are just of Riley being silly before going to bed. She was so excited for her new PJ's (Thanks Lilli). She was just being a little girl playing in her bed and I just had to take some pictures of that. I also added a picture of Riley and her kindergarden teacher, Mrs. Walsh. She has been coming all summer long doing little things with her preparing for 5k. Today was her last day until school starts. I wanted to take a picture of them together. Well, Riley and Jesse started fighting over a toy and this is the picture I got. Oh well:)

Riley and Lilli have really gotten closed over the past year. It is just so fun to see. I am glad God has given her a "best friend" that lives right next door. They have a lot of fun together. I remember having my "best friends" next door to me when I was little. This past week we all had dinner together and after dinner they were being typical girls by giggling and squeeling. So I sent them outside to play in the puddles. They had so much fun. They also ended up having their first sleep over at our house. They did pretty good, although Terry and I had to both go in and tell them to stop talking and go to sleep but they had a blast. In the morning I e made them waffels with chocolate chips:)They thought that was AWSOME!
I wish we could have just stayed there for another week but we had to go back to reality. Here are some more pictures of our week. Enjoy:)
