We love birthdays! James always takes the kids' birthdays off and we spend the day doing fun things as a family. This year we got to eat breakfast and open presents with Grandpa, play Legos in our pj's all morning, and go to Chucky Cheese. (Chucky Cheese was Koby's one request for his birthday). It's funny to think $10.00 of tokens could make a kid so happy! Koby and Linc had a blast.
Later after dinner we had our family and the Craig's over for some monster cupcakes and ice cream. It was an exhausting, fun day.
Yesterday we registered our little five year old for Kindergarten. This has been a moment I have been counting down the days for. However, now that it is finally here James and I both find ourselves a little sad. Our baby is growing up!
Today I had my first parent/teacher conference. Immediately after sitting down, I could feel my face get red and I started to sweat... I must need to get out and interact with adults more! It's hard to believe James and I are mature enough for this stuff :)
K: "Dad, don't say that. That is rude! Do you want me to repeat that to my friends? You always teach me the bad stuff!"
J: "What?! What does mom teach you?"
K:"Mom just teaches me the good stuff."
Haha. Poor James!

Linc and Koby have sure become buddies. I have started having Koby's friends come to our house most of the time because when he is gone poor Lincoln falls apart. Linc will run around the whole house yelling, "Koby! Koby where are you?!" Then he will come to me and in a whimper say, "Where Koby go?!" Poor Linc. Although life is pretty great now that they are such good buddies, it also means they fight like crazy too. Usually it is tough Lincoln that always brings his brother to tears, haha.
