Pink Milk

This summer we hung out with Brody and Jillian. Jillian "drinks pink milk" and so Payne thinks he needs to drink this "pink milk"! Really it is milk in a pink sippy cup! Payne seems to think that is the only way to go though. So we are trying for some other colors of milk. Yet he without fail will tell you something is pink or yellow! Oh, well! It is really funny though. We sent this video to Jillian a while back, but I thought I would share!

1st Day of School

      This year was a little different in the start to the school year. I was starting a new job, in a new grade as well. Of course my kids are awesome! And it was Payne's 2nd birthday! I have moved from teaching at a private school where there were 36 kids in 3rd grade and I had to collborate with one other teacher, to a public school where there are five 4th grade teachers and a 125 kids in the grade!
      I work on a team with in the 4th grade team of 3 teachers. I have my homeroom in the morning and then teach them Math, then we head to recess, then my class goes down the hall for Writing and Content and I teach another Math class, lunch and planning then the kids come back and my homeroom goes to Reading and I teach other class of Math. At the end of the day I teach my homeroom Word Study. If you could keep up with all of that, congrats most people are so confussed.  Really all I do is teach Math three times  to 75 kids and Word Study once. It is a lot different and I am learning so much, but I am absoultly loving it!
Payne and Ryan waved me off and wished me good luck on my first day!

    Also, like I said it was Payne's birthday on the 1st day of school which was hard for because I wanted to spend the day with him, but that didn't happen. We were able to have a some friends over for birthday cake that evening and it turned into a great night.

Happy 2nd Birthday Payne!

Payne's Birthday Party

 Payne turned 2 a few weeks ago. We had his party the weekend before his birthday! Which was also the weekend before I started school. We kept things real simple. We got some play sand from Lowe's and put it in the baby pool. We had lots of trucks from the beach that I had gotten at Target for a $1, that we put in there. We brought the tool bench outside, and then we also had the sand and water table. The kids also played on the big play set in our backyard. For food we had chips, pretzels, chocolate covered raisins, and cupcakes.

 He loved his "tuptake" and blowing out his candle!!
Happy 2nd Birthday Sweet Boy!!!

On his actual birthday, when I went to wake him up! He yelled "tuptake!!!" when I told him Happy Birthday!
