Catching Up

No time to post when tax season rolls around. So in order to catch you up with our lives here is what we've been up to:

Daniel learns how to put brakes on my car. He officially knows more than I do about cars at this point!

Daniel learns how to check and change my car's oil. He now officially knows twice as much as I do about cars.

Daniel grows like a stink weed in March and April. He ate two PB&Js for lunch and rounded his day out with a whole can of Chicken and Stars soup. Is it wrong to wish you had your child's genes?!
We went and saw Monster Jam complete with taking a friend of Daniels' from Kindergarten who was excellently behaved. I think we proved to ourselves that we can handle more than one child at a time, which is a good thing since our foster care social worker called and wanted to know EXACTLY when we were returning from our upcoming vacation.

Troy found this completely awesome stuff for the bath called Squishy Baff. You add powder to the tub and it turns it to beads of goo and then you add a second powder to turn it back to liquid. Daniel loved it. I took a few photos and stayed out of the bathroom, claiming that Squishy Baff was a dad thing only, complete with a dad cleanup time!
Daniel is rocking out Kindergarten. He's aced all his Friday spelling tests and he's reading short books to us. Of course he's also reading everything else and we can't spell anything to each other anymore because Daniel sounds it all out. No more hiding the fact that we might go to the "p-o-o-l later". Daniel quickly yells "Pool".We've had a great couple of months and are looking forward to the end of tax season and a trip to Florida! When we return, it sounds like we'll have a foster placement right away. We'll keep everyone updated!!

Way to go Daniel! The squishy bath stuff looks fun but messy. How hard was that to clean up?

You all have so much fun! Love the bath goo mainly because it was dad's job to clean up!!

Glad tax season is over and you can rest and prepare for the next chapter. Looking forward to hearing about your call when it comes.
