Porter has learned to whistle. I think he whistled the whole time he was home the first day he figured out how. He was chosen as Student of the Month in his class last month for showing the quality of respect. He is doing great in school and reads anything and everything. His favorite thing is dinosaurs and he dreams of "digging up dinosaurs" when he grows up. I guess Vernal will be the perfect place for him. His top front teeth are finally growing in - which I am glad, yet I miss his toothless grins.
This is a common scene on our house: Zach in a cape, gloves and sometimes more with a light saber. He takes on a new character everyday. One of his favorite things is to "build" with his Lego's and he makes some pretty cool stuff. He's become my inquisitive child - always asking questions every moment of the day. He's become very curious about what words mean and has always got something on his mind.
Andrew's new favorite thing is to color. He can constantly be found in our play room, marker in hand drawing various scribbles and lines. He has mastered his shapes, numbers, and colors, and is quickly learning his letters; his favorite being "A for Andrew". His most common response to my requests and comments is "huh?" It's become a game; he says, "You say Hmmm, I say Huh." Then we go back and forth for a while. He's become quite the character. His other favorite thing is to get all the games out of the closet and play - after scattering them all about.
Rhett's been feeling the pain of going back to tax accouting. The poor man is never home. He travels to Vernal every Monday with his boss and they return Tuesday evening. He usually doesn't get home from work until after 7:00 in the evening during the week and is working Saturdays as well. Needless to say, we are both can't wait for April 16th. But regardless, we are very thankful that he has a good job.
I'm trying to maintain sanity in our cave of an apartment. I thought I'd get lots of scrapbooking done, but to no avail. I even made a goal of finishing one layout every week, but that hasn't helped either. I'm much more content reading a book or watching a random movie on TV. Any suggestions on how to get motivated again??
