From Howlin' to Growlin'

He did it!!

Dylan has completed 2nd grade and has been promoted to the 3rd grade.  We are so proud of his accomplishment.  It didn't come easy though.  He had a tremendous amount of change to deal with during this second grade year.  Dylan began as a Timberwolf at Abby Reinke Elementary School in Temecula, CA and finished up a Wampus Cat at Itasca Elementary School in Itasca, TX.  The transition was a difficult one, but he managed to work through it and completed his task.

Dylan - Way to go, buddy!!  You dad and I are very proud of you and we can't believe you are a 3rd grader now.  You are growing up so fast on us.  You are a sweet, good kid.  You will be friends with anyone who will give you the time.  You work hard at school and desire to understand and do well. You are well behaved for you teachers and a good example for you peers.  Keep up the good work!!  Now go enjoy your summer and have some FUN!!  We love you,  Mom and Dad

Here is a quick re-cap of Dylan's 2nd grade year through pictures:

Dylan's 2nd Grade Field Trip

Dylan is now an Itasca Wampus Cat!!  I transferred into Itasca during the 2nd grade and now Dylan has followed suit.  The only difference is that I came in mid-October and he made the big move in April - all that is left to do is field trips, field day, and fun.

This year the 2nd graders headed to Dinosaur World in Glen Rose, TX.  If I never go back it will be too soon, but the kids sure seemed to enjoy it.

Missing Daddy

With almost two months "under our belts" the following conversation just about sums up how we all feel:

Jaydon:  I miss daddy.

Me:  I do too.

Jaydon:  He loves me??

Me:  Of course, Daddy loves you very much.

Despite missing Daddy we are keeping ourselves busy.  The boys enjoy their WHEELS.
