Disney World

We just got back from a week at Disney World with my parents and sister. We had such a great time!

Adelaide ended up getting the flu our first park day, so she lived on Motrin and Mucinex for the week. She was such a trooper and hung in for 4 straight 12+ hour park days! She ended up with a double ear infection from all the congestion and flying home, but she is doing much better now. 

We got to see all 4 Disney parks and though that the Avatar ride at Animal Kingdom was AMAZING! We got to eat breakfast in Cinderella's castle and thought the fireworks show at Magic Kingdom was great. More pictures to come!

New Blog Design

I thought it was about time for a new look. Love the simple look with some added color!

It’s a long weekend for the kids and we are ready for it! Getting back into the swing of things has been hard after the holidays.

I let Adelaide skip school today (perks of being in Pre-K) and Jon picked up Aedan after lunch so the weekend has officially begun!

Back to Blogging

I thought it was about time I dusted off the old blog and got back into posting on a regular basis. Since this is our family scrapbook, I want to be able to look back and remember the big and not so big things.

My goal is to post at least twice a month for 2018, so here is post number one!

I guess I should start with a little update on what everyone is up to these days!

Jon still works from home and we love the flexibility and time as a family his schedule allows us. Aedan is in 2nd grade and Adelaide is in Pre-K full-time at the same elementary school as Aedan. It is so nice to have them at the same school and she is learning so much this year!

Since both kids are in school full-time, I decided to go back to work, part-time, in October. So far the transition back to work has been very smooth. The company I work for is awesome and my schedule is flexible. I feel like the only thing suffering is my gym life, which I need to figure out! Especially after all the holiday food I enjoyed. Ha!

Oh, Hiro and Raylan are both doing great too! Bet you can’t guess which one thinks he is a lapdog. Ha!

7 Years Old

And just like that Aedan turned 7 years old in March!

2017-03-19 13.42.51

Aedan, here is what you have been up to lately…

  • You love playing Legos. You build some pretty incredible cities. I love how you set up all the people in action positions. Your imagination is amazing.

2017-03-20 15.26.52

  • You also love playing Minecraft and Lego World on the Xbox and computer. Really anything that involved building is right up your alley.
  • History really interests you. You love stories about mythology, knights, and pirates.
  • You are hilarious and have such a quick wit. The comments that you come up with keep us all laughing (and you love it!).
  • You are doing great in first grade! You work so hard and are such a good student. You are always getting complemented for your good behavior and willingness to help others. In January, we went up to Scottish Rite and you were evaluated for dyslexia. The diagnosis wasn’t a surprise to us, but it has allowed you to get the extra help you need at school. You have made some pretty amazing progress and we are so proud of you!
  • You are playing soccer this session and doing so well. You want to continue so we are going to sign you up for a more completive league next session.

2017-03-25 11.34.06

  • You are a great big brother. Adelaide thinks everything you do is perfect and she wants to do EVERYTHING you do. You are good about letting her tag along with you and you guys play really well together (most of the time).

Aedan, you are such a joy to be around. You are always looking out for others, and willing to lend a helping hand. We are so proud of the person your are growing up to be. We love you so much!! – love, Mommy
