Getting excited for Addowyn.


 Talvyn's message to his unborn sister. She has a lot to live up to and he needs to keep working on his spelling skills.
Here is Talvyn working those abs on the WiiFit U. Playing the Wii U as a family is a fun activity. Unfortunately, Dana cannot participate in these types of ab toning games. See below:
Here is Dana at 31 or so weeks. Imagine the photo above reversed: one evening Daxtyn said, "Mom, do you know what you look like? You look like the capital letter 'B.'" Now those are some spelling skills!

Daxtyn: Student of the month


Daxtyn was student of the month for October.  He has been pretty pleased with himself.  He even stated, "of course I got it, I always do what is right."  Pretty confident little boy who according to his teacher NEVER speaks out of turn but will answer her questions.  He loves learning and sings tons of alphabet songs, continuously counts (by two, odds, evens, fives, tens), he has begun to add and subtract.  He is learning lots of sight words and really "can't wait to read big boys books."

Here's a quick Daxtynism. One day last week Daxtyn was helping his mother make dinner. They were making chicken enchiladas, but Daxtyn didn't know it. He only saw the chicken, cheese, and tortillas and told his mom that these were his favorite foods. He was very excited for dinner. But then, when dinner began, a finished enchilada was placed on his plate. He looked at it in anger and said, "What is this toxic waste made out of all my favorite foods!"

Talvyn: student of the month

 This was my awesome Mother's Day card from Talvyn.  It read: To My Mother (I love you xoxox; thank you for making food with a picture of his favorite Shepherd's pie.).  Pritty, Nice, Awsum, Cool (other type), Amasing.  On the Pritty page he wrote: My mother taught me to ride a bike.  My Mother always says clean your room.  On the Nice page:  My mom makes me happy!  My mom looks good in black.  My mother's favorite food is ______.  My mom thinks I am hansum.  On the Awsum page:  My mom is betiful.  My mom goes crazy wene I don't clean the room.  Thank you for making food for me.  I hope we'll be together forever.  On the cool page:  My mother is crazy for turtle (candy).  I'm so glad my mother loves me.  My mother helps cooks.  My mother always _________.  On the amasing page:  I LOVE you!  You are amasing!  (He made a LOVE stamp out of an eraser at school and stamped the word LOVE a few times.)
 Talvyn earned the student of the month award last March for Carberry School as a 2nd grader.  I found the award on my dresser and thought that I better blog about it before I throw it away.
Talvyn earned the Marvelous Musician award for Carberry in April of last school year.  He actually hated music this year, so the award was a little ironic.
