Feels like a long time since I've blogged about us. Nothing earth shattering happening in my world lately. I'm pushing my way through this semester. Actually, it feels like I'm being dragged behind a horse drawn carriage, nailing every bump in the road. That's grad school for ya.
Caleb is doing great! He gets smarter every day. As you can see from the pic above, he's mastered the art of body painting. I've created this generations Picasso!
When we read books together at night, it is great to see him start to understand more and more. He can read basic words now and spell his own name. He's doing really well in his jujitsu! His focus and attention is soooo much better these past few weeks. On Monday he is going for his orange stripe! I think he's fine to get it.
He's doing very well in school. He is still going two days a week, but I think by September, I'm going to bump him up to three days. In September, I'll have started my internship as well as taking on a full course load, so I will most likely need that extra day! (To recuperate? How about a nap and a nice cup of tea..? That would be nice!)
He is still quite the daredevil. He loves anything physical. Here he is jumping off the platform for the trapeze at Jordans Furniture. Yes, folks, for 10 bucks a pop you can train your own little monkey to want to run off and join the circus. Worth the 10 bucks? I think so!
Taken today- he's getting so big and just SO handsome. Am I right?!
I've been in a black and white mood lately. Some pics...
My favorite pug of them all, Sam Sam.
Cheesin for the camera (and this is a rare, actually looked at the camera moment!)
It is not all fun and games being four! Oh, life is very very hard at times.
