Josiah's First Day of School & 7th Birthday!

Where most kids started school this week, Josiah has been in school for 3 weeks at Poplar Grove. He has an awesome teacher, but we'll say 2nd grade is proving to be much more challenging in the "responsibility" area than first grade. He's so smart, but not quite ready for this. We're working hard . . . he lives for the afternoon when homework is complete and he can play outside! Here he is in the traditional 1st day of school photo - "dad's dress shirt".

I CAN'T BELIEVE MY BOY IS SEVEN! Josiah turned 7 on July 30th. He had another pool party. You just can't go wrong with a pool party on a hot July summer day! For the past 2 years, he's had a military themed party. This year he went for a Scooby Doo party. Fun was had by all! We gave into a Nintendo DS. He was totally surprised! Now that it's been a few weeks, the newness is wearing off and he's still gravitating to his army guys and tanks and played a mighty drum concert today. He loves playing lego star wars, but we're glad he's not glued to the DS.

Hi Kris, I absolutely love the picture of Josiah in Ed's shirt. What a cutie. Tell Josiah that James is a scooby doo fan as well. We just got back from Tahoe and we had a blast. James and I got to parasail for the first time and we loved it. Well, I will send you some pictures via email. I will talk to you soon. Love you all.

So glad you're staying connected with us through the blog. I'll have to send you Josiah's photos for 3 years in Ed's shirt. It's amazing how much he's growing. Our plan is to take his picture every year the first day of school all the way through the 12th grade! Glad ya'll had fun on vacation! love ya, Aunt Kris
