Finally Fishing Fun

About a month ago Connor got the "I want to go fishing fever". It was all he talked about, well almost all. On election day he and I drove to my dad's and then we headed to Dale Hollow Lake. Connor, my dad and my nephew headed out on the boat to do a little fishing. He had a wonderful time and caught 9 or 10 fish. Here he is with one of his big fish.

Fun in the Tub

This is Keaton. Here lately his most favorite thing in the world is to get in the tub. He loves the water. He loves to add bubbles.

Keaton added all the bath soap to make all these bubbles without us knowing it. (I think I was downstairs doing laundry when this happened.) He was a happy as a clam. Look at that smile!

We all had to take a look. Instead of getting made with his as happy as he was, we just snapped a few pictures. Connor had to get involved. He was laughing at Keaton. So Keaton got out and pushed Connor into the tub, clothes and all.

Now here is the kind of mess Keaton leaves behind when he plays in the tub. I had to share this picture. It just says it all.

We've had to start hiding the liquid soap because it just last long enough. Wonder why!! Keaton has discovered another way to entertain himself in the tub. He has been wearing his swim goggles and going under the water. I haven't been able to get a good enough picture of that to share. (You either only see the back of his head or you can see his behind.) In just a few more days, he can take his goggles to the pool and get his fill of water play. Hopefully then we will have less towels to wash. Until next time...

Connor was invited to attend a Leadership Luncheon last week. His teacher selected him to represent his class. Yeah Connor!! He had to write a paragraph to read to those in attendance. There were many leaders from our community.

In this picture you can see Connor enjoying his lunch and his friends' company along with the president of the local university.

We sure do hope Connor continues to develop his leadership skills. We weren't able to attend the luncheon and didn't hear Connor present his paragraph, but we hear that he did a wonderful job and wasn't the least bit nervous.

He sure makes us proud.

Until next time....

Another Good Book

Well, I just finished another good book. Seems like I'm catching up on some long over due reading. Too bad the laundry is getting further and further behind. Oh well, only five more days of school for students. The week after that I have three work days and then I can look forward to spending the days with the boys. Maybe I'll squeeze in some house work then.

This was the first book I have ready by Linda Francis Lee and I wasn't disappointed. You should check it out.

Until next time....

A Note from the Teacher

I have chosen Connor to represent our class as the student that "lives" the 7 healthy habits. Congratulations to him and to you for raising such a fine young man.

That was the part of the email I received from Connor's teacher this afternoon. Isn't that great!!!! He has had an awesome 4th grade year. He makes us proud!!
