Donut Day

Zachary is doing a rotating preschool with some other kids from our church. This means that every 5th week I get to teach his preschool class in my house. We did this last year, but this year its a little bigger of a group and its twice a week and more structured. For my first week I was suppose to focus on the letter D, so of course the first the Z thought of was DONUTS!! I decided to try my hand at making donuts from scratch with 5 preschoolers. It was messy but a lot of fun. Next time though, I may not try to be so ambitious...but then again...who knows!!

I love how serious the boys look and how "ready to take a picture" the girls are!!

The things we do

I can't believe we are almost through with October. Time is flying and I'm doing a terrible job keeping up with the blog. Oh well. I'll keep trying! Here is just a glimpse of what is keeping us so busy right now.
I am the room mother for Max's kindergarten class this year. I have no idea what I'm doing but I'm figuring it all out as I go. Here is my school spirit stamp to go on the back of my mini van. I guess I am now officially all I ever hoped to be!!
Max is keeping very busy with kindergarten these days. He is doing very well and really enjoying himself. He says writing is his favorite part of school, followed by PE, lunch, and riding the bus. I can't believe how much he is growing up. What is happening to my little boy?

Zach is having a blast being almost 3. He and Daddy got to spend some time together the other night and Zach decided it was a playdough night. This is what the two of them came up with. I was quite impressed. It even says Winnie the Pooh in playdough across the front! Zach told me that he told Daddy what to do and then made sure he did it right. Very nice!

Don't these two look so much alike?? Except for the eyes! Joe has been busy trying to find out how to get around. He's very good at scooting backwards now and usually ends up under the couch. We'll work on it some more!

Jeff has decided to focus on food storage lately so he finally cleaned out and organized the pantry to make space for all the boxes of food he has ordered. He took a picture to prove that he did in fact know how to clean and organize. I may use this picture as evidence later!!
So there you have it. Proof in pictures that we are here, we are well, and things are going great!
