Happy Birthday to my kiddos!
Both kiddos celebrated birthdays this week. Riles on Sunday and Danny today. We somewhat celebrated by going to the car show on Sunday, and we will have their birthday bowling party on Saturday. They loved the car show, especially watching the BMX bike stunt team perform. I just know I will be seeing riles and dude making ramps this summer. :) I cannot wait for summer vacation, nice warm and lazy days listening to the kiddos fight, going places and experiencing new things. Angela and I are planning on taking our kiddos back to KC this summer. One definite stop will be the Trex cafe. I can't wait.
I scrap with the girls in April, and look forward to that. We haven't been anywhere or scrapped together in a while. So long, in fact I was worried if we were still friends! Here are some pictures of the kiddos this past weekend.

Updates on us...
not a lot to report on us. The kiddos will turn a year older (each) towards the end of the month. We are trying to plan a party that works for both of them. It is hard when there is such an age gap between them. Danny is doing well in school this year. The maturity and responsibility he has gained is amazing. Riles is still Riles. She loves school and enjoys learning. She is excited to change schools next year and be able to play with her friends in town after school. Danny...not so excited; however, once the school year gets started and he meets some new friends, I bet his outlook on it will change. I hope so. Chris and I have decided if he does not adjust well we can always change him back. He will be studying for his permit soon. I cannot believe he is old enough for this. The years have flown so fast.
I am looking forward to spring break and winding down of the school year. As I look back on the class from this year, I can see how much we have grown. Me as a teacher, and them as individuals. I will miss this class. Some of them, I have had for 2 years. Others I wish I had more time with, time to help them become more successful, and to cherish them a little longer. Sometimes, it breaks my heart to see them go on.
Happy Saturday.
