School is out for Summer (Well almost)

I am so ready to spend all day with my baby girl! I can't believe that she is going into grade 3, she is almost in intermediate, if they even do that anymore! Kris and I finally made the decision to move her to Miracle Beach Elementary and I really think that its the best decision we have made. When we originally cross boundary transferred her to Huband for Kindergarten it was perfect for us because I was working in town and so I just dropped her off on my way to work and then one of us picked her up on the way home. It was perfect for all of us. Kristina made lots of friends and really enjoyed her time there but its time to move on.

I called today to talk to the secretary and she was so nice! There was no worry that it was to late because there was lots of room and they were happy to set up a time for me to come in and fill out the paperwork and they would take Kristina on a tour. She is definitely sad to be leaving her friends but is excited to meet new ones. As long as we keep a positive spin on it she will stay excited!

I am excited that there are smaller classes, its a smaller school overall and that she will meet more kids that live closer to us as that's the school in our catchment. Biggest perk....the bus picks up right across the highway from our road and drops off at our road! I am not going to need to drive everyday and waste all of that gas. I won't have to wake Brandon up from his nap to go and get her, she can just come right home! Yaaaa!

Here's hoping we made the right choice!

Leaps and Bounds

Well Brandon is learning new things in what feels like leaps and bounds! It feels like it wasn't that long ago that we were laying cuddling on the couch all day and all he did was sleep. That really was a long time ago though with how he is now. He is a ball of energy and doesn't stop. It really seems true with my two the differences between boys and girls. Kristina used to just sit and read and color and Brandon just wants to jump, run and be crazy.

He is down to only one nap a day and has been for a while. If I wait until 12:30 he goes down great but its hard because with Kristina in school he needs to be up by 2:30 so he usually goes down around 12-12:30 and wakes up just in time. Sometimes I have to wake him up and he usually goes back to sleep in the van untill we get her and then he is good.

He is an early riser too. He gets up around 6 and goes to bed at 7:30 so he doesn't need as much sleep as Kristina did. To bad too because I love my sleep ;)

He is talking more and more. Kris was cooking dinner the other night and asked him if we should have rice or potatoes and Brandon said potato lol, it was so cute. He can call Martha by her name but only if he thinks we aren't paying attention because when we ask him to he won't do it. Hes learning his animals, what they are called and what sounds they make. Its so cute. He is also getting into wooden puzzles, especially the dinosaur one. He is obsessed with dinosaurs now.

Its so fun to watch them go through different phases because his are all so different than Kristinas. She loved dolls and he loves dinosaurs. Dora and now Handy Manny. Its fun.

I don't have any new photos because I am on my laptop but will try to post some new ones soon!

Kristina is getting excited for school to be done for Summer. I can't wait to be able to spend all day with both of my babies. We have plans of crafts and swimming in the pool and jumping on the trampoline!

I want the weather to turn around and then we can sit outside all day and just soak up the heat and the sun. Brandon loves to be outside playing. He got a bike from my blog, a run bike, and he loves it! He can be on that bike all day and never complain once. He will fall down and get right back up. Come on sun, we are ready for you!!!!
