5 year appointments & Lawn Sales

Caleb and Meghan had their 5 year appointment on Monday. They did unfortunately get one shot, which went over better than it did last year. Caleb didn't cry, but Meg did. They asked if they could go to school now that they have a shot. They are so excited to go to school!
Caleb weighs 50lbs and is 46 inches, 95% for both.
Meghan weighs 41lbs and is 45 inches. 95% for height, 60% for weight.
The doctor says they look great!

We have been really busy getting ready for our lawn sale. I am hoping to get rid of some stuff! I don't care about making money so much, I just want to get rid of some major junk. After we get through this we are FINALLY going to be painting the downstairs. We WILL get the basement room finished before kindergarten starts!!!

Hayley loves babies. At first I thought it was just a phase of taking her "babies" to bed with her. It started with one baby but now she has 3 in her crib with her at night. Meghan was never like this as a baby and still isn't that interested in babies. I thought that it was just a comfort item for Hayley. Well the other day I went to the neighbors to get Caleb and Meghan who were playing on the swingset. There was a baby on the ground and I let Hayley play with it while we were watching. Then when it was time to go and give the baby back to the neighbor kid, Hayley would not let go for the life of her. I had to pry it out of her hands and she is strong! After I got it back I gave it to the neighbor girl and Hayley proceeded to cry and have a huge fit like I have never heard. It continued for about 10 minutes after coming in the house too.

When we went to the mall this past weekend, Bart brought the kids in to the toy store and I went to look and try on some clothes. When I met up with him later, he said that when he got to a certain part of the store Hayley would cry and have a fit. He finally figured out that it was because she saw the baby dolls. She sure shows her temper when she wants something!

Weekend Recap

We had a good weekend. This weekend unlike all the others didn't seem to fly by. Bart mowed the lawn on Thursday so we didn't have to spend 2 hours doing that. I had every intention on going to WW but it was so nice and it was actually a weekend we didn't have anything planned. So we got some small projects done while Hayley was napping. After Hayley woke up, we decided to go and get Caleb's haircut. It was desperately needed! We then went to the mall, which wasn't that fun with 3 kids. So we left not soon after and headed to the in-laws and had dinner.
On Sunday we went to church, where Hayley proceeded to crack up people with her scowl look and waving to gram in the choir. She is getting harder and harder to entertain there. I bring a variety of snacks but those only work for so long. After church my sister took Caleb and Meghan with her to my nephews t-ball game. We drove down later for and met them, and then ate dinner at my sisters. It was a nice relaxing weekend!

The kids are done school for the summer but have been approved for summer speech classes, which I am so happy about. I am still waiting for details on when it will be. I know that Caleb and Meghan will not be happy about it.

I can't believe it's June already! Time seems to be flying by!
