New Project: Operation Screened Porch

We have been in our home four years now. We have never done anything to the screened porch. It seems to be more of our storage in limbo spot. Until now. I bought an ugly but with great potential small dining set at an estate tag sale today. I am excited to begin this project.

I also bought this piece because I thought it was super cool. I am thinking of using it has a planter for the centerpiece.

Komodo Dragon

Dallin has been working the army crawl for awhile. He seems to be very content with his speed and prefers it over his knees. I think it looks more like the way a Komodo Dragon walks.

Funny Conversation with Brooklyn

There is a 5th grader on Brooklyn's bus stop who we have befriended. Her family is from India. She started to walk away and said bye.
Me: Audios Hirell!
Hirell: (Walks back towards me.) Um, I am not Mexican, I am Indian.
Me: I know I was just saying bye in Spanish.
Hirell: I don't speak Spanish.
Me: Well you speak a little because you knew I was speaking Spanish.
Brooklyn: (Brooklyn interrupts abruptly.) Your Indian? Do Indians kill people?
Hirell: No.
Me: Brooklyn I think you are confused with people who are from India and Native Americans. Native Americans only killed people because their land was being taken away. Where did you learn this?
Brooklyn: Pocahontas.

Looks like we will need to teach Brooklyn more about the different places people come from.

Back To School

We are back in school. Brooklyn has been so excited to start 1st grade. I hope she can keep that love for school for many years. We are excited about her teacher and have heard nothing but good things about her.

This is a first for us. Camden is attending Preschool through the special education Pre-K program through our district. I am so thankful for the early intervention programs that are in our district. Camden has been so excited about going to school. More than likely she had no idea what to expect but it is what Brooklyn does. Her teachers are great and she has a friend from church in her class. She also is excited to ride in a large bus.
