Salutations and such...

Conversations with Jack from the last three days -

"Colten don't taunt me with that!" Jack
"WHAT?!? What does TAUNT mean?!?" Coley
"It's like tease....it means almost the same thing." Jack

"Mom what exactly does enthusiastic mean?" Jack
"It means really excited, why?" Me
"Oh, because I'm REALLY enthusiastic about this week!" Jack
"Where did you hear that word?" Me
"I'm not really sure, but I AM enthusiastic and I was enthusiastic about Trinity's birthday party too!" Jack

Cooking dinner....boys waiting (not so patiently at the table)
"Speed up your process!" Coley to me
"You need to speed up your process." Jared to Coley
"What process?" Coley to Jared
"Your intellectual process!" Jack

"Aluation" Coley
"What?" Me
"Aluation" Coley
"It's salutation Mom and it means hello" Jack

"Mom....Jack just called me a glockenspiel. I didn't know what it was...he says it's a musical instrument...is that right?!? Jared
"Yep" Me

The kid is cracking me up. Holy vocabulary batman....hoping it rubs off on me.

Last day of school...
complete with a rainbow last day mohawk. (Good idea Colten)
After today I officially have a 1st grader, a 3rd grader, and (gulp!) a 7th grader!
How can that be?!?!!?

AND...
a giant holy crap...
we got everything we wanted (and more) at our last IEP meeting on Monday for Colten.
So all is in place for next year.
Prayers answered.
I feel much more settled now....

Rock on....

Happy SUMMER!

Jake's big words come from Pinky Dinky Do but I'm guessing your boys being a little older aren't into that :p

'Mommy, famished means REALLY hungry' (Jake is often famished - just how much can one four-almost-five-year-old eat? It's astounding.)

Hi by the way :D
