week in review

another week has passed. how does it go so fast? i feel a lot like jills does in the picture. just tired. the secon d week of school went off without a hitch, mostly. thoms was sick on monday, had to go to the doctor because of his asthma. he was worried about coughung at school. he thought that his teacher would get mad. his teacher is super nice, not that any teacher would getr mad at a kid for coughing. his soccer is down to one practice a week!!! he had a game friday against our friend's team. he played well, but they still lost. next time the spiders will be victorious. ems team ruled on saturday. she is being more aggressive and even trying to shoot some goals. one day she will score! back to school night was thursday. met their teachers. loved both of them. excited for the year. allie likes "teeny tots" now. she got in trouble because she was "too tired" to help clean up. actually the teacher said that none of the kids were helping and the parents needed to talk to them about it. jills is taking more and more steps. she will take about four steps and then just throw herself towards the intended target. doesn't matter if you are within arms reach or not. she has lots of bumps and bruises to show for it. kids are excited because grandma koral is coming for jills birthday on sunday. allie wasn't too excited at first, mostly because it was the day she got in trouble at school. i asked her why she didn't want grandma to visit. she said because she smells. awesome. what does she smell like? well not just her but her house and it smells like candy and snow. true, it does smell like candy and snow, whats not to like about that? thomas lost another tooth. it came out at church last sunday. he was mad because the tooth fairy didn't come, well he did he just put the money under the top bunk pillow. good recovery tooth fairy. works everytime.

week in review

what a busy week. first off we celebrated labor day at aunt dori's house. as always a wonderful time was had by all. the best beans ever!!! (not to mention, sorry mother kendig, probably the best hamburger too). too bad we had to cut the party short because, boo hoo, school was starting in the morning. it was also ems bday.(see earlier post for photo montage through the ten years of ems life.)
em and thomas started on tuesday. em is in the 5th grade and has mrs. woinarowicz. (i call her mrs. w.) thomas has mrs. leard. both kiddos seemed very happy with their teachers.


allie started school on wednesday. she was not very happy to be going to teeny tots. she really liked her year at methodist. we did also, but love tiny tots and wanted her to have a go with mrs. shelly and the other lovely ladies there. em and thomas both had mrs. shelly and loved her. she went and really liked it. she has a little friend keely and wants to go back next week.
thomas finally lost a tooth!!! he was really nervous about starting 1st grade with all of his teeth. I guess this really didn't happen this week. we were at disneyland for a final summer hurrah, standing in line at splash mountain. i asked him to let me wiggle the tooth. it was barely hanging on, i gave it a little twist and it was out. he was so happy. wasn't too happy about the gold coin the tooth fairy left. most kids get like five dollars he tells me. i told him that gold was $800 an ounce so really it was worth more than a dollar. he bought it.

jills has been standing and taking steps. she just might be walking before she turns one. she climbs up everything. oh, right now she is stuck on the table. she loves the twenty pound bag of dog kibble (yes, i call it kibble, it sounds better saying she loves eating dog kibble rather than dog food) that daddy brought home for rex. she thinks it is her own personal bag of snacks and helps herself to it several times a day.

finishing off the week with chris' visit to the "wart dr." and him getting very angry with her because she doesn't know how to get rid of his warts and she kept calling him mr. kendig. me going to the doctor because my feet don't work so well and my doctor had no idea what is wrong with them. i can only wear flips flops.

soccer offically starts tomorrow and so no more weekend trips to p.s. too bad because we had a glorious weekend there over labor day. it even rained one day.

here's to a sucessful new school year!!!

happy birthday emily jayne

ten short years ago today our sweet, sweet girl was born. you always hear about enjoying it because it goes so fast. i can remember her being born just as if it happened today. she is the sweetest girl on earth. she is so kind and good to everyone. everyone always says they wish that they could have an emily. no way no how are we going to give her away. she is such a helper, a good big sister and friend. she can't stand to see any hurt or sad. emily is so smart, excells at the piano and soccer. she does what ever we ask her to do with hardly any complaining. she can remember the lyrics to just about any song you have ever heard and can remember the tune, who sings it , name, what commercials it is on...

happy birthday our sweet, sweet tito, we love you and are so lucky to have you in our family.
