Good thing I knew exactly where the camera was and I caught Ethan when I did 'cause as soon as he saw me he quickly three the shoes off and sat down on the coffee table. Lucky for him...and me...I am quicker than he thinks I am with a camera. He was so embarssed but I just had to take this one for future blackmale purposes! We love you Ethan...no really we do!
Ethan had an awards assembly at his school last week and was presented with an award for Academic Achievement. We are so proud of him as we did not know how he would take the change from the Arizona school system to the highly achieving Colorado school system. He is doing great and we could not ask for anything more from him. He is loving every minute of being a 1st grader so let's hope this continues on through the rest of his school years. We are so proud of you Ethan...Great Job!
Denver had their free day at the zoo a couple of weeks ago so we figured it was the best time if any to take the kids. Megan was obsessed with seeing zebras, which we saw, and pigs which we did not see since it was not at a farm. Silly girl! Ethan wanted to see anything with four legs or even two as he was quite fascinated by the ducks...I have no idea! :0) It was definiltey a very crowded and stressful day but we all had fun and loved the fact that all the animals were out on display...all except the Lion...which was missing in action. We will definitely do it again 'cause you can't ever beat a free day at the zoo!
We made a trip to Home Depot to get locks on Saturday and found out there was an event going on in the parking lot that included fire trucks, cop cars, bomb squad units with bomb robot and the SWAT truck. We went over to check it out since Ethan love fire trucks and cops and it turned out to be really fun. They had a race track set up with John Deere tricycles and then pumpkin painting and you could also build a fire truck from wood. That we ended up taking home and doing because there was such a long line for that craft. Anyhow we ended up making a 30 minute trip to Home Depot into a two hour excursion through the parking lot. We had fun and so did the kids and when we got home they were so worn out they all took really long naps...yeah for peaceful moment for mom!
