Many times this summer I would find Joel in his bed like this.Then on Tuesday Jesse brought some papers home and I noticed he had written some numbers backwards so since he asks every day if he has home work, I decided to go ahead and make him some homework. I wrote the numbers he had messed up on our white board and made him write them. He loved it (as you can tell from his face). We had to keep it on the board until daddy got home that night. Now Riley had her first 1st grade project due today. We pretty much had all week to work on it. She had to make a time line of something important in her life. So we made a time line of our family. We started with mommy & daddy getting married then Joel born, Riley born, Jesse born, Josiah born and finally Nellie born. Can I tell you, she had so much fun.And I have to say, I did too. Terry and I both herlped her. He did the outline of the timeline and I got to help her with the fun part-the crafty part:) We pulled out my Cricut and she made all the people in our family with it. She did so good! I could tell she loved every minute of it. And the thing she was most excited about, she got to stay up late one night to work on it. She picked out the people's outfits and glued them on. Lilli let her borrow her glitter glue so she got to "fancy up" my wedding dress and her dress. She also wrote all the names and dates on the time line herself. She did an awsome job. We both had a lot of fun:)

So last week, Jesse found the kite that he had gotten from his friend Burton for his 5th birthday. We had put it away for a "windy day". But in the middle of a South Carolina Summer it is hard to find a windy day. SO...we decided to try to fly it anyway. Jesse and Daddy "build" the kite and then we drove to Y and tried to fly the kite. I really didn't think it was going to work. But I was wrong. I guess if you just keep running it will stay up in the air. The kids had a lot fun running in front of the kite. Hopefully we will be able to fly it again soon on a windy day.
Thanks Burton for the kite. Jesse had a lot of fun with it and we look forward to flying it again very soon!
