I was wearing a plain shirt, but it said Old Navy across the top. He pointed to each letter, repeating after me when I named it.
Nicholas: B (close enough)
Whenever you ask him the question Why, he always answers 'cuz. Obviously a 2 year old doesn't understand Y as a letter yet.

Favorite Read-Aloud Books: Anything Magic School Bus, Eloise, Capyboppy
Favorite Reading Books: BOB books, Dick and Jane, Sing, Spell, Read, and Write Readers.
Things to Remember: I try very hard at everything I do. From handstands and cartwheels that I have practiced for hours until finally getting it, to my math and reading work. Even though I am technically not old enough for Kindergarten, I have learned to read, count to 100, add, and many other things in our first year of homeschooling. I love to write stories and notes to people. I am creative, and I can be found dancing and singing much of the time. I also love books and reading. I can be a great big sister, when I want to, but sometimes I just have to pick on my baby brother. It comes with the territory.
Age: 2 years 6 months
Favorite Color: Green
Favorite Foods: French Fries, fruit snacks, strawberries, cheese, and pretty much anything that passes his way. The boy can EAT!!
Favorite Things To Do: run, jump off the fireplace hearth, play in the sand.
Favorite Sports: Soccer, basketball, baseball, football. Does it involve a ball? Then it's good!
Favorite Toys: Cars, trucks and balls
Favorite TV Show: Dora the Explorer
Favorite Movie: Dora and the Lost City
Favorite Books: Anything Dora, Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree, How Many Bugs in a Box, Easter Bugs
Things to Remember: I have a huge vocabulary, and love to talk about anything and everything as I fall asleep. I can be a sweet little cuddly boy one minute, and tackle my sister or parent in the next. I have managed to get into heaps of trouble, but nothing ever too serious. I like to test my limits, and bother my sister, but in the end I love her very much, and we can often be found running through the house racing cars together or just playing chase. I do NOT like to share!

Our Easter morning began with a loud 6:30 wake up of "The Easter bunny was here!! There are eggs in my room and on the floor!"
The kids both got lots of outdoor toys, so hopefully the weather will cooperate tomorrow and let us spend some time playing in the sand and blowing bubbles.
We finished decorating the Easter/ Spring cookies we had baked the night before. Katie makes an excellent assistant chef. Daddy and I frosted in lovely pastel shades of pink, lime green, lavender, and yellow. Then Katie and Nicholas helped sprinkle.
Hopped up on sugar...literally!

This year is different.
Not only did Mike change jobs, but we changed states, creating some strange situations. Such as one state that has an income tax and one that does not. As of last night, I had decided that I was finished with our Federal Income Tax and was going to mail it today, and so I did. This morning at 10:30 I sent it on its merry way. Now at 1:30 I have figured out the problem with our state return, which somehow changed the result in our federal return as well, so now I get to play amend the return.
Let's just say it wasn't my fault in the first place. I will place blame on the lovely people/ computers who send out the W-2's with the wrong information on them. Luckily smart people exist in this world, who know how to go online and find the correct version of the w-2 and then fix the return.

The weather has been gorgeous. Beautiful sunny days, a bit windy, but still great for going outside to play and watching all our bulbs that we planted in the fall coming up.
