Okay, so we are not the most musical bunch….yet…..but at least they know the words (and they sure like to watch themselves on camera!) And, remember this one, Eva? Happy Birthday!

Here is a 4 minute video from Tyler and Aaron’s Spring Musical called, “Three of a Kind”. It is a combined performance by the Kindergarten and 1st and 2nd graders. Aaron is in the back wearing a green shirt and tie and Tyler comes in later and has a solo as one of the Three Musketeers (the one on the left). It was very cute and fun to watch. You may even hear Aiden talking and “growling” throughout because there were lots of bears in the show! Enjoy!
My baby is growing up so fast! He has an expanding vocabulary, appetite and skill set! He can open and close doors, help himself to a snack (or many snacks) from the pantry, push his brothers’ buttons, find anyone’s belly button and he is running! He loves to play in the sandbox with Jackson, build Thomas the Train tracks, make animal noises and run around outside. He has a loud, deep voice and can say variations of the following words, “Mommy!, snack, Jackson, Grandma, Daddy, downstairs, doggy, big boy, baby, drink, shoes, zebra, toys, car, panda bear, bear, blankie”…..and many more every day.
He has a very developed sense of humor (and sense of justice, as you can imagine having to defend himself from three older brothers), he almost seems like a little prankster sometimes. And, although he is very tough in a physical sense (he is always bumped or scraped, usually without a tear, just a little dusting off – you may have noticed the busted lip in the pictures, a re-injury), he is quite sensitive and seems to get his feelings hurt if his brothers won’t play with him. Yep, there is nobody like Aiden….except for, maybe Mark, his dad, who is ALSO the youngest of four kids! 😉
Over Spring Break we took the kids to the mountains. We stayed in Frisco and skied at Copper Mountain. Tyler, Aaron and Jackson took a ski lesson one day and the next day Mark, my Dad and I took Tyler and Aaron up the bigger lifts and we skied all day! Thankfully, my mom came with us, too and could watch Aiden and Jackson while we skied. Here is a little video I made so that Aaron could talk about his ski trip in his Kindergarten class for “show and share”.
Tyler has recently had some major dental and orthodontic work done on his mouth (including the removal of 8 baby teeth, just like his mom). I am amused and relieved to see that these difficult experiences of his have come out in his writing at school. Overall he has processed these past several months very well and he seems to handle it all with humor rather than defeat. He seems to really like his big “Sponge Bob” teeth, I guess most 7 year old’s would! He flaunts them in pictures and writes about them in his papers at school. Thank goodness he is not a teenager trying to deal with this crisis of appearance. Then again, he takes after a mom who PROUDLY wore her neck-gear to elementary school.
Here is what his papers say (including the backsides which I did not put up):
Yesterday while I was brushing my teeth I made a very silly face with my teeth in the mirror. My eye[s] were in two different ways. One facing up and one facing down. My front teeth were sticking out. I showed my brother.
I have blue gray eyes. I smile with my two front teeth sticking out. I am 60 pounds. I have blond hair. I am seven years old. My birthday is September 1st. I am 4 feet tall and 6 inches. I was born in 2002.
