Funny Boy!

I have to write about Jace and the funny things he has been doing since he started school. First, I have to tell you that I have been a little scared about him going to school because he likes to mouth off alot and he always has to have the last word. If he has something to tell you he will not shut up until he has said whatever it is he needs to say. It is quite annoying but sometimes funny:) He also hasn't had any pre-school and most of the kids here have, but he is a quick learner and I think he will be fine. If Larry and I feel the need, we will just have him do Kindergarten again.

So on with the funny things! On the first day of school they had a little orientation to show the kids the classroom and meet thier class mates and all of that fun stuff. The teacher gave each kid a star with thier name on it and she had a little basket for each child that had scissors, crayons, pencils and other fun learning stuff. I guess Jace thought it would be cool to get his scissors out and sword fight with one of the other kids. Yes that would be a Chlarson boy to be the first one in trouble! Larry and I weren't there when it happened, but one of our friends told us about it. Her son and Jace are really good friends. Then when it was time to leave, the teacher told all the kids to leave there little baskets at thier desk (because they stay at school) and so she can write thier name where they sit. Jace walks over to his spot and starts to take his star and the teacher told him that it stays at school. The little fart starts to argue with her about it cause it is his and it has his name so he gets to take it home. "No sweetie this stays here so it will be here when you come tomorrow." Jace says, "Then I a want my scissors." "No the scissors stay here too." Jace-"but you said they were mine and I want to take them home." The whole time I was wishing he would just shut up and go get his suff out of his cubby like the rest of the kids. Finally he let it go and listened. When we got home we had a little talk about listening to the teacher and not arguing. Hopefully he will get better at that quick!

He is on his second week and he is loving it. He comes home singing songs about the rules of the school and tells me about stories that they read. It is really fun to listen to him. I asked him if he was learning any letters or numbers at school and he looked at me and scrunched up his face and said, "Na my teacher doesn't like that kind of stuff!" Then a couple of days later he said, "Mom, do you know that if you are retarded at school that means you are late." I about peed my pants. He makes me laugh so hard sometimes. Just yesterday he asked me if I would comb his hair like his friend J.T. (combed to the side and not spikey) "I want my hair like that so the kids at school will think I am cool!" It was too cute. He looked a little nerdy, but he thought he was cool stuff! A funny picture of his huge mouth! He was laughing so hard at something Kendall was doing in the kitchen and I got a shot of it. Just looking at this one makes me laugh! He is such a goof.

My baby is ONE and 1st day of school

My kids are growing up way too fast! Jace has started school and Kendall turned one on the 6th. I feel a little old! I cannot believe how time flies. It is crazy!
It is fun to see Kendall and her personality. She is a little fire cracker! She is walking now and she says quite a few words. She has passed Connor in speech and physical abilities. It seems so new, because it has been 4 years since we experienced all of this with Jace. We still get to experience it with Connor too, it is just a little bitter sweet that my 1yr. old is talking and walking better than my almost 3yr. old. He will get there with time and maybe seeing her do and say things will help him.
Here are some pics of Kendall during her first year! Only a few minutes old and she already knows how to give the stink eye!One of my favorites of her blessing day!

The boys loved to hold her. Jace is always saying, "take a picture with me holding sissy."

Connor has always loved holding her, she has never liked it so much. He usually hurts her, but not meaning to, so now whenever he even gets near her she starts to whine. She is a bit of a drama queen!
She had such crazy hair before we cut it. I thought she looked like a little rooster:)
I think this one is so flippin cute! My little punk rocker! ... See how wierd her hair looks! That is why we cut it! I am so glad we did too! Thanks Tiff.
Here she is with her best friend, Evanna Richardson. And yes I know the bow is a little crazy! She looks more like a present! I thought it was cute though.
Here we are at Reilly's wedding. I love having a little girl!
Our little Easter bunny! Sooo cute!

Found her playing in the linen closet. She had so much fun!

Loves to wear my sunglasses! She looks like a fly:) I love it!

It was hard having her turn 1! I wish she could stay little forever! Normally we would start trying for another baby about now, but since things are a little crazy with Connor we are holding off for a while.

Here are the joys of my life! Aunt Ruthie bought them these cute clothes, and I love them! This picture was taken on Jace's first day of school, and everyone got to put on a new outfit. Thanks Ruth, we love you!

Here are more pictures of Jace's first day.

He was a little mad that I made him take picures in front of our house. He just wanted to get to school, so he said, "Mom, you can wait and take them when we are at my school, you need to take me now!"

A fun but scary day for me! I know he will do great though. Larry and I are so proud of him. We love you Jace!

I know there are a lot of pictures, but I don't know how to do a slide show. Sorry!

I also don't know how you get it to where you can click on the picture and make it go big, so if anyone can help me out, it would be nice!
