A Calendar By Ian

Ian's CalendarWith only a few days left of February, I realized that I needed to go ahead and post this great calendar that Ian made.

He wrote the letters and numbers all by himself.  I told him what a great job he did.

He is 5 years old and still learning to read and write.  So, the backwards numbers are to be expected.

It is amazing all of the things he is learning every day.  He certainly is my little sponge.  I love to watch his mind working and his discovery of his life around him.

What a privilege I am to be on this journey with him and my husband!!

A few quotes about children:

  • “Children make your life important.” ~Erma Bombeck
  • “Kids: they dance before they learn there is anything that isn’t music.”  ~William Stafford
  • “Boy, n.:  a noise with dirt on it.”  ~Not Your Average Dictionary
  • “Children seldom misquote.  In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn’t have said.”  ~Author Unknown
  • “While we try to teach our children all about life, Our children teach us what life is all about.” ~Angela Schwindt

What is your child doing that you are proud of and think is really cool?  I’d love to hear from you!!

Happy February!

love noteHappy February and Happy Friday!

Can you believe that we are already starting the 2nd month of the year?  I sure can’t!   January went by so fast.  I wonder if the rest of this year will fly by too?!

I am very glad that it is Friday and nearly the weekend!  Should be a fun one too since the  Super Bowl is on Sunday.  Looking forward to the game and the commercials.  It is always a fun evening.

Also in February are the Grammy Awards and the Oscar Awards.  I enjoy those shows as well!  I must admit I don’t know a lot of the current artists but hope to find out more about them.  I also usually don’t see very many of the nominated movies but did see Lincoln and hope to see a few of the others as well.

And, don’t forget Valentine’s Day!  I will have to see what Kirk and I want to do.  The great thing about my husband is that we celebrate each other throughout the year and he has surprised me with flowers on random days.

For this Valentine’s Day, Ian can give out cards to the kids in his class at school.  I will need to get the list of all of the names so we can hand those out.  The beginning of a new era for us!

Whatever you are doing this weekend, I hope it’s a good one and lots of fun.
