around here is feels like the beginning of growing up
changing teachers for subjects in school
starting to play an instrument
first choral concerts
arranging his own play dates
more self initiated
i think that makes him seem older
it’s hard to imagine that his ‘time at home’ is half over
i’m sure that the remaining time will be nothing if not adventerous
i’m looking forward to watching it unfold
pouting while feeling left out.
(while mommy planted in the garden)
3rd grade zoo trip.
6th grade science rocket launch.
preschool zoo trip.
power point presentations.
end of school fun days.
(representative picture – 2 other boys playing as well)
last days with awesome teachers.
independent wardrobe choices.
trip to ripken baseball academy in aberdeen, md.
(more in another post)
playing with friends
visitors from afar
going to the park
and trying to find some time to just relax.
i know this is a bit late
but i still wanted to share
for those far away
timmy’s whole school christmas sing-a-long
(the turn out was a.m.a.z.i.n.g. i have never seen sooo many people at the school at one time – we couldn’t even get inside the gym – but it was still fun!)
(this is the final song of the concert – a combined effort with all 3 orchestras – 6th , 7th and 8th – again and again i am blown away by the music programs that my children are blessed with – i am brought to tears – literally – at every performance – and almost now just thinking about it – i’m such a sap!!)
hope you enjoyed!
last nite timothy was reading this book
he would read the riddles out loud
and chris and cj were guessing the answers
he got to this page
and he got picky
the answer had to be exactly like it was printed
we came up with many close approximations
to which he replied
oh you’re so close!!
you’re right on the tip!!!
you’re right on the tip of the needle
you just can’t fall off!!!!!
just had to laugh at that one
he was soooo earnest
this was again demonstrated to me
when it was the day before valentine’s parties at school
and he was sick sick sick
(like puking, more than once)
but insisted on making homemade valentines
and not only homemade
but ones that he individually colored
for every kid and every teacher he has in his class
plus one for his principal
i got the templates off the internet
there was a version that was in color
but he didn’t want those
he wanted to do it himself
and he did
too bad the next day
school was cancelled
