The child formerly known as Lorenzo!

So Jason shared with me this conversation he had with Lorenzo the other day.

Lorenzo: "So Dad, I want you to call me Isaac from now on."
Dad: "Why, do you want me to do that?"
Lorenzo: "Because all the kids at school make fun of me, they call me Lorenzo Snow."
Dad: "That's a good thing, Lorenzo Snow is a good person, he was a prophet."

Lorenzo left not being too convinced! It seems like no matter how hard you try kids always find something they can tease people over. I guess I should just be impressed that at this age they know who Lorenzo Snow is!! :o)

First day of SCHOOL!!

In honor of the first day of school, I created this background, LOVE IT!! :o) So today is Lorenzo's first day of the 1st grade! He was so EXCITED to go, his buddie Oliver Grimes is in his class along with some friends from Kindergarten. His teacher's name is Mrs. Mason, she is new to the school, but I've been told that she is AWESOME!

Last night I was HORRIBLY sleep deprived!!! Delia woke up 3 times as opposed to her 1 time, and to top that off, Claire was up in the night with the FLU, AHHHHH!! I think in all I had 3 hours of sleep, not to mention that I am currently fighting a sinus infection. Oh well, life goes on!

Getting lost in a sea of people entering school.

Visiting Ms. Seiter (kindergarten teacher)

Lorenzo was more excited to show her his new shoes than to show her Delia!

Lorenzo at his desk, his friend Ollie sits right behind them...this could spell TROUBLE!! :o)

Sitting proudly at his new REAL desk, Mrs. Mason is in the black jacket.

Lorenzo showing Ollie the morning routine of writing the "popcorn" word of the day; today it is "the."

Making flossing EASY!!

(WARNING: Some photos are NOT for the faint of heart) :o)

So I realized that I never posted about Lorenzo losing his first tooth. Back in May Lorenzo single handedly pulled out his first loose tooth. He pulled it out right before he and Jason went to the father and son campout so he didn't loose it while camping. (pics to come later, I can't find them on the computer)

Today, Lorenzo pulled out his second tooth! It flew out of his hand and hid itself in the family room carpet. Luckily I was able to put in my eagle eyes and find it, only to have to later repeat the search as he managed to drop it again in his room! Needless to say that if he is wanting a visit from the Tooth Fairy, his tooth is OFF LIMITS!!

This background brought to you by the letter J!

So, pardon me while I toot my own horn. This cute picnic background has been brought to you by your's truly! Who knew I could cut my own hair and now create my own background, what will I discover next...oh the possibilities! :o)

Oh, and I have to share that I am now the Primary Choirister! I'm so excited, I've seriously ALWAYS wanted this calling! There is something just so special and exciting about the children's songs. If we were playing Go Fish I would yell "Got what I asked for!"

Playing catch up!

Not that I have the best of excuses for not posting more often, but alas I have finally taken the time to update you on our summer's adventures! Go pop yourself some popcorn, get comfy and enjoy the many posts.

Almost 7 weeks old!

It's amazing how fast time has flown since Delia was born. She is such a fun, cute, cuddly baby. We LOVE her so much!!! She is such a smiler, and very happy...as long as she is being held! Poor little thing had impetigo last Saturday which is a topical staph infection, it looked like really bad eczema but we couldn't clear it up. I finally took her into her doctor and got some anitbiotics for her and it cleared up in two days. When we took her in she weighed in a 11lbs 6oz which means she has gained almost 4 lbs in 6 weeks, apparently she is doing quite well! ;o)
We sure do LOVE this GIRL!

4th of July!

We had a fun 4th of July! We had a bbq and my mom’s and dad’s house. Aunt Bea brought a slip and slide that the kids had a BLAST on! Stacey’s dad and his wife Angie came from Louisiana to visit and joined us. The kids had fun with the annual firework display. Delia and I stayed in the house to keep her out of the smoke!

My crazy brother Dave thought it would be fun to let the kids throw those Pop-its at his bald head to make them pop. It sure did work, but it actually left burn marks on him! That didn’t seem to stop him from doing it again and again.

On the way home, my sister, Kathryn, and her family got in an accident. The traffic lights were out, leaving the back roads pitch black and they found themselves in the middle of the intersection and got hit by another driver that did not treat the area as a four way stop. It was quite the ordeal, but all in all everyone is fine and only Kathryn is left with some whiplash. Thankfully nothing more serious occurred.

Roasting marshmallows

Jason decided to build a make shift fire pit in our backyard. Now I'm sure you are thinking that we are nuts digging a hole in our lush green grass, well we tricked you! That is not lush green grass, but lush green WEEDS! The kids had fun roasting marshmallows, but boy was it too hot outside to stand around a fire. We will definitely be using this more as the weather cools off in the evenings!

The many owies of Claire:

I know that I mentioned that Claire got whacked in the eye with a 2x4 by my sister's neighbor boy while I was in the hospital with Delia, but I never posted pictures. How sad! :o(
Then on July 23rd, she and Lorenzo were playing in his room, when she started howling and balling and came in saying she hurt her head. She was not kidding!! There was a stream of blood pouring from her head and she ended up needing 2 stitches. We went to her doctor for the stitches and it ended up costing us $80+, the doctor's office billed the insurance $539 for 5 minutes worth of work, REDICULOUS!! It actually would have been cheaper for us to go to the ER!! Dumb insurance!

Major League Renzo

Watch our Major Leagues, here comes Lorenzo!! Lorenzo and a great time in T-ball this past summer, Jason had fun as the assistant coach too. Their team was the Kansas City Royals, coincidently enough Jason was sent to Kansas City for work and was able to get Lorenzo and pendant and some KC baseball magazines. Thanks to all the grandparents for coming to watch and support him, he loved performing for his fans! :o)
