Sunday May 18

The kids are so tired they can't sleep. I hate when that happens. They have been cranky little suckers for the last week but yesterday and today have put me over the top. I'm really hoping they go to bed early tonight.

On a brighter note the kids are really going to town with the birds. They can identify several different birds and let me know when the feeders are empty. They also know which birds like which food and can get the food for them if needed.

Nathan is plugging along at reading. He finished one book and we are starting on the next book of sounds. He can count to 100 but needs help with 13, and all the 10's (like twenty, thirty, etc.), and he recites the ABC's.

Noah and Zachary like to copy Nathan so they've picked up how to count to about twenty. The can do the abc's although they get confused. Noah can also read the same book Nathan can. Both are close to potty training. I'm one to wait until they are ready so I don't have to deal with accidents. It worked great with Nathan as he woke up one morning and decided to wear underwear and we've never had an accident. Zachary for the last 4 days has insisted on underwear. He's had a few accidents mainly when I'm not hounding him about going to the bathroom.

What's with the picture of the window? It doesn't even look like your window.

The blue jay that the kids love and that bothers the cats is on the fence.
