Ok I know I am still a bad blogger, and I'm probably still on Santa's naughty list, but in my own defense we don't have internet at home yet and it's hard to find time at work to blog, and even harder to find time when I am on vacation. Ya ya ya I know that's not an excuse but what are you going to do delete me from your friends list............I'm waiting.......
No.... I thought not, lets get on with the new adventures and tales of the Innes Gang in St George Ok
Well we made it through another semester without too much damage.
Everyone is adjusting to life in St George rather nice.
Corben enjoys the new high school and has found himself a nice comfortable niche. He has been taking stagecraft and has really enjoyed it. He can't wait until next year when the school offers it as a full year class. He survived his first 'lock down' at school. This involved a drama class prop gun, (no I was not involved with this) and is looking forward to other involvement with the drama class.
Morgan says she has the bestist kindergarten teacher ever. Mrs Jones has quickly made it to the top of the favorites list of this picky 5 yr. old. She loves going to school and asks everyday "is today a school day" She was a little bummed out that she doesn't have school during the Christmas break. The fact that she has been able to stay home with dad quickly eased any sadness that she did have. In school she has been learning her numbers, letters, and how to write. She loves to learn new words and read new books. Her favorite part about school she says is recess, but she also likes to learn new songs in music class.
Cooper (Bubba) has become the man of the house in the afternoons while the princess has gone off to school. If he makes it home awake from taking Morgan to school he is more than happy to have most of mom's undivided attention while Bauer takes his afternoon nap. However most days he doesn't make it home with his eyes open so Kim will quite often take advantage of that to sneak in a quick nap herself.
He thought about using the big boy potty and he got quite excited about it, sadly his enthusiasm lasted for only 1 short day before he decided that he wasn't quite ready yet.
Bauer has recently discovered mobility. He has started worming across the floor now and moves surprisingly quick. Just his week he has started using his knees more. He discovered he could cover more ground faster by getting up to his knees. It's only a matter of days before he takes off on a full crawl, then walking won't be too far behind that. Then Kim will really have her hands full during the day.
- she will have 2 mini-me's to chase after....what a scary thought!!!!!
Kim, like the kids has become quite fond of St. George. Over Thanksgiving while we were in SLC with her family, several times she commented that she was ready to go "HOME" because it was too cold there.
Speaking of cold, we survived the major winter storm that crippled California, shut down Las Vegas and buried St. George. Ok it wasn't that bad but it sounds good when you give it that little dramatic flair. The week before Christmas we got about 6" of snow in St. George overnight. Now for most of us that's not enough to even grumble about let alone worry about. Well the Washington County school district decided to close the schools for a snow day. Now this was the day before the last day of school before the Christmas break.
We spent 5 years in Logan and finally have a snow day when we move to St. George.
The kids had a snow day and I still had to go into work and give a final to my sound design class.
Morgan and I were able to make a pretty good snow man before the end of the day. Everything melted within 2 days except for Jack the snowman he hung in there for almost a week. He kept shrinking each day and finally a rain storm the day before Christmas did him in.
we used golf balls we picked up in the yard for the eyes and the buttons
