HP Placard

At JD's 5 year check up I mentioned something about a Handicap Placard. Our pedi said it was a great idea for JD to learn to walk rather than always to expect a carriage (more cuz JD is "lazy") if someone will do something for him, like carry him, offer a carriage, he will gladly accept. This way, I can say "we are close enough to walk so you can walk!"

The Doctor's office called today and they signed the paperwork and sent to Boston for approval. I have mixed emotions, I certainly won't use it everytime, but hey if it helps JD out, why not? What do other POLPs think?

To infinity and beyond!!!! Well to being 5 and beyond...

JD's birthday was at Boston Bowl this year. He wanted a "house" party, but I selfishly said "JD, Mommy watches 10 kids a day, 5 days a week and doesn't want to do it on a weekend..." So, he picked the bowling alley. We invited 14 kids and it was a blast. One hour of bowling, 30 minutes of eating (cake, pizza) and then 30 minutes in the arcade!!! He loved it so much...His buddy Brendon's Mom said "I have never seen JD so excited"

Auntie Debi and Uncle Paul get the prize for best gift. It was Buzz Lightyear wings. He wore them for almost 2 full days. He LOVES them. Toy Story 3 was the gift theme of the party.

Great time had by all...JD had his 5 year check up today..he grew an 1 1/2 inches and is 34 inches tall and gained 2lbs. I have to check the achon chart to see where we sit. Does any POLP have the chart handy? Let me know if you do! Everything else is doing great and we are officially ready for Kindergarten with that lovely MMR shot...OMG! did JD scream, I think you could hear him in New York...but it is over and he got some monster truck stickers. Brave, sort of, boy.

Happy July to everyone!

Anne's last day of school...I am little behind...

Anne was so happy yet so sad for her last day of kindergarten. She got to bring home all her things, journal, box of art supplies, calendar, etc. She is still writing in her journal throughout the summer, she writes about what she does during the day or our vacation days!

The Kindergarten holds a field day just for the kids in K. I volunteered to help with the hippity hops! So funny to watch 6 year olds hop on them, especially since most of them had never been on one. It was a fun day. The kids got a sports bottle, ribbon and a Graduation certificate. Fun day, cannot wait for JD's field day next year!

Yeah Anne! I cannot believe she is going to First grade.

Planting a garden.

Anne has been dying for me to post pictures of her garden. The kids and Doug started this garden on Memorial Day Weekend. They planted tomatoes, peppers, basil, oregano, strawberries, cucumbers and beans. We have a little of everything starting to grow!!! Thanks to Nanny Carol for watering it while we were gone camping!
