It's the LAST week of school!!

It's the LAST week of school!! YAY!! It's the LAST week of school!! YAY!!

Only 2 more days for my big boy and 3 for the other 2! No more homework (and fighting to get them to do it)! No more getting up early (and fighting to get them to do it - we're night people)! No more hurrying to get stuff done in the evening (and fighting to get them into bed)! (Are you seeing a trend here?)

We get to sleep 'till we want to get up! We get to go to the pool! We get to PLAY!

Oh yeah, I'm supposed to write something about Jack! Well, here's an update. We finally got him to stack blocks, roll a ball to Daddy and big brother, and took a tiny step (more like a shuffle)! He's becoming more toddler-like every day. He has definite opinions about being held and loved on :(, and wants to do more himself. He likes to drink out of his sippy cup but has this annoying habit of throwing it down after a sip. We've tried taking it away after the throwing but then he wants another drink and mom is a sap so I give it back. He has a roomful of toys that I put away every night and we dump out again every morning. He has an amazingly soft blue blanket that I got as a shower gift. The friend that gave it, embroidered his name on it. It was with him in the NICU and he's slept with it since he came home. He loves to hold it and cuddle it. Right now he's "combing" his hair with a comb that M threw at her brother 'cause she was mad. Sometimes, he actually does it right!

I just found your blog from Braska Bear's. I'll check back often and see how Jack is doing. I also have four kids like you. Take care!
