Degrees of Safety

Maybe I should give up and leave the step stool out since the rocking horse is a bit more dangerous...

Mother's Skillz

Thought i was totally on the ball this morning- up at 6 to do my workout, got the girls ready for school, started the laundry, even got to take a shower (gasp!) before the younger two got up- and then at 8:40 i remembered that Luca had an appointment at 9:00, 15 minutes away. Pretty proud that i was only 5 minutes late!

Forgive the Deluge

I am making up for neglecting my blog for so long by using Facebook to update it.  I know it's a lot of posts.  I'm sorry for all the emails for those of you who get updates.  Well, not sorry enough to stop.  Feels good to get 'er done.

Nothing Can Stop Him!

As you can tell, he's pretty proud of himself. I took away the step stool, so now he uses his train to get whatever and wherever he wants. Got a cupcake off the counter with the same method this morning.

Happy St.Patrick's Day!

All my kiddos in green!

Mother Nature listened!  She sent some sun and warmer weather which we decided to fully take advantage of. An added benefit was a certain little boy left his sick sisters alone for a little while. Yay!

Kindergarten Curriculum?

I have been very careful not to expect too much from my kids.  School came easy to me, but I knew that that didn't guarantee little child geniuses.  Grace and Liliana are both good students, both getting high marks in their classes. I'm very proud of both of them.

Then there is Moira.

I've always known that she was smart.  Too smart for her own good. But then she started adding numbers faster than Liliana, and listening to Grace practice multiplication.  It didn't take her long to understand the concept behind it ("it's just a faster way of adding, mommy").  She is constantly asking us math questions using infinity, googliplexion, and other various big numbers. 

And she's in kindergarten.

Today Kaylon printed off the multiplication tables to 12 and pi to the 50th decimal.  She's loving it. 

Good thing her mom and dad both graduated college...

Well Played Mother Nature

Well played- saving the biggest snow for March. But know that it is your last Hurrah. I insist that spring start next week! 

That said, my backyard is gorgeous.

  And the kids had a great time.
