May 3rd

So, as mentioned in the previous post, we had something to do today. First we (B, A, and I) went to Sam's for a few things. Brice was awesome and loaded everything except the diapers into my cart and then did his famous "push the cart, Mom, and I'll run and jump on like a garbage man" thing throughout the store. Anna was oblivious and just sat there eating her yogurt raisins and making sure beloved Carly got lots of kisses.

Then, we returned home to quickly throw the frozen foods into the freezer, eat a quick lunch and then be off to Brice's Parent/Teacher Conference. As most of you who know Brice well can imagine, he received lots of great comments. He wasn't present for the conference (they had child care there for us) but might as well have been because Ms. Lori had nothing negative to say!!! She said things like "model student", "teacher's dream", "exceptional student", "has never broken a school rule", "plays with ALL of the children very well", "listens", "was the only one in his class to recognize by sight all of his number 1-20", "recognized 8 out of 10 colors by looking at the word" and "VERY ready for kindergarten"!!! This makes Justin and I so proud. Children, after all, are a reflection of their parents and how they are being raised and this really makes me feel like Justin and I know what we are doing even though Brice is our first. If he continues on this path, little Anna will have a tough act to follow. Although something tells me that things like that are NOT going to bother her and her spunky little self in the least!

We received our invitation for "Graduation" from preschool today and I loved the Bible verse they included on it. I will share it with you and must now address my pile of paperwork sitting next to me.

"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it."~Proverbs 22:6
