My last Favorite Moments post was all the way back in September 2017. The holidays crept up on us, as usual, and I was getting a little more involved in Kole’s school and class that the blogging took a little backseat. It’s now summer time for the kids so I’ll try to take advantage of any free time to get back to typing away.
Kole | Kole finished off second grade this month and I am extremely proud of his school year. His teachers and his classmates had nothing but good things to say about him. He learned so much academically this year. I loved his explanation of common core and friendly tens he learned in math, I loved the little bits of knowledge he’d tell me about ants and spiders (ew!!), and I loved all the little projects he brought home that took planning, testing, and follow through. He’s always been into books and getting lost in the stories he’d read but this year he really fell in love with writing. He took every advantage of the times he had in school to write and illustrate stories/books with his classmates during Writers Workshop and he also took time at home to create little books. His imagination and creativity is boundless.
School was so great for him this year that he has shed some tears because school is over. Not only because he’d miss his friends and recess but also because he genuinely enjoyed every part of the school day as well. He even went as far as to say “Two months of summer is soooo looonnnggg!” What kid says that? LOL. Even though I have never felt that way in my whole life, I am really happy that he feels this way. This feeling may not last forever but I will do my best to keep him just as interested in school as I can. And I also am hella grateful for the educators that keep that school spirit alive!

Monroe | My little baby boy turned three this month!! He. Is. A. Terror. But the most lovable kind. He most definitely is a sour patch kid. Sweet one minute and sour the next. But lately, his sweet has leveled up! He is giving me more hugs and kisses and I get a lot more random “Mimi, I love you”s. And if you know us well, you know his sacrifice of the green M&Ms for me is quite the gesture coming from that little M&M monster. Conversations with him are getting easier and we are understanding each other more. As much as I love all the growing, it is making me a little sad. It’s already hard enough for me to accept that Kole isn’t teeny tiny anymore and now my littlest baby is growing up at the same super speed as his brother. Time goes impossibly fast when you measure it by your growing minis.
Young, Wild, and THREE!
What started off your sweet summertime?
