Birthday extravaganza!

Well, I think we survived the Grant's 5th birthday! 3 parties and 1 head injury later we are happy to back at Monday and eagerly awaiting Grandma and Papa King's arrival! I couldn't help but reflect this weekend on the ever so familiar phrase used by many Mom's, " I can't believe my baby is getting so big". The tug at your heart seeing your little people grow is unbelievable and indescribable. While most days I am blessed to spend so much time with Grant and Maggie, I find it particularly satisfying to experience these landmark days with them. They are truly two amazing people and I learn more from them every day!

Maggie had her first head injury on Sunday! The doctor was able to glue it back together instead of using stiches...thank god! She was super brave and Grant was a great big brother! He was riding his new bike and Maggie ran in front of him. They collided and Maggie tumbled on the road! Lots of blood but luckily a treatable injury!

All in all a successful birthday weekend!

First Day of Kindergarten

Grant will be five in less than a week and yesterday was his first day of Kindergarten! I cannot believe how big my little guy is getting! He's riding a bike without training wheels, chewing gum and now he's a kindergarten-er! He had a great first day! He loves his teacher and had a lot of fun! Maggie had a rough time seeing big brother go to school! But, we start co-op next week so I think she'll get used to the new schedule! Here's a picture of the two of them being silly while I was trying to take pictures!
