Big day for a big boy

Today was a big day for our big boy.  He had his kindergarten evaluation at 'big school' with one of the kindergarten teachers and he was so excited for it.  She said he did a great job and is ready for school.  I picked him up early from preschool and he asked me if he needed his book bag for 'big school'.  I told him he didn't need it today.  While we are looking for a parking spot, he saw some big kids walking with their backpacks and gave me a talking to.  "I have to take my backpack in because you always have to take it when you are going to school and I'm here for school."  So, he carried it in with him.

He was quizzed on letters, numbers, shapes, patterns, completing a drawing, writing his name, colors, and following directions.  I think I got them all.

Next step is for Aaron and I to have our parent interview...fingers crossed...haha!

It's been quiet

January has been a wonderfully slow month.  I have a few things to catchup on, but for the most part, the blog has been quiet because we've had a nice low-key month.

Anderson had an impromptu birthday party for lion last night.  So sweet!

Kid talk

We heard some funny stuff over the Christmas break...

Anderson and I were putting together an alphabet puzzle.  I handed him a piece and...
Me:  Here is the letter 'u'
A:  Yep, the letter me
Me: No, the letter 'u'
A: (getting irritated),  no, the letter ME

One of Owen's teachers gave him a packet of hot chocolate, some marshmallows (or as Owen still calls them, harshmallows), and a cute little poem.  I prepared it for him on Christmas Eve morning.  After he finished it, he said 'Hey, I'm not supposed to have chocolate for breakfast.'

A couple of days after Christmas...
O:  Did Santa get my shed from the tool store?
Me:  I don't know buddy.
O:  I think he did.  He got it from the orange tool store.  The blue one doesn't have any sheds like mine.
For the record...he is correct.

Owen turned on the CD he got from VBS this summer.  The song, Jesus is the Rock came on.  We clearly have some work to do...Owen was all excited because the song 'Jesus is Rotten' was coming on.

After breakfast the other day...
O: That was a good breakfast hon

Anderson was saying grace the other night at dinner.  Owen distracted him as he was beginning to say 'Amen', which then came out 'A', pause 'B', 'C.'
