Not to brag... (but it is my blog)

I don't really mean to brag about my son, but here goes... (ha!) 

He is doing excellent this year in 1st grade.  We decided to hold him back this school year to help with his leadership skills and maturity level. I am proud to say - so far, so good. He was used in the Open House video to show the entire grade level parents about how the school tests the students.  He is also being used as a teacher buddy to his peers for those students who need more help with sight words or math.  He loved the idea of being a 'teacher' to his friends. (I'm hoping it also helps with his patience level.) He also wrote a wonderful journal and picture about stingrays that was displayed at the door to his classroom.

His teacher rewarded him with some fun treats for being the 'star' of the Open House video.

I love seeing this smile. 
I love hearing positive comments about school when I ask him how his day went.
I love hearing funny stories of things he is learning on 'the bus.'
I love that he loves school. 
(and so very thankful!)

Pumpkin patch time

It has become a tradition to visit the local pumpkin patch every Fall.  The kids usually take a field trip this time of year also, but they were both going to different places so we headed out one Sunday afternoon to our local spot.

Paint, paint and more paint

This weekend I managed to paint the nursery (at 30 weeks pregnant)!! I really do like projects like this so it didn't seem that big a deal to me.  I love the outcome! Now I'm feeling even more motivated to get the rest of the room together. I even ordered the monogram inital for the wall over the crib yesterday! I painted one wall a pale pink just like the picture below with the rest of the walls a light grey. I've just got a little touch up work that needs to be done.

Here are a few pictures of my inspiration for the nursery...

All photos from Pinterest board - Baby #3

I'll post pictures of the finished product in a few weeks. Time to get this room ready for arrival of a new little one!
