Well this is a new one for me. My childrens' school is pushing a new concept this year. They are introducing what they call "robust vocabulary." The idea is to introduce these big words to these young children. Now do not get me wrong, I love this idea. They are trying to increase the student's level of understanding. My first grader's words consist of "capacity, underestimate, and ambled." I have to admit I had no idea what ambled meant. Apparently, it means to "walk at a slow pace." Hmm....I do not know when or if he will ever use that word, but he sure will know what it means. My daughter's words are "heed, opinionated, blockades, inappropriate, ect.." Each week the school adds new words. I think they are starting to sink in. The other day Abigail says "Mom, why do you think SpongeBob is inappropriate for us to watch?" I thought to myself.."wow, she used it correctly and everything."
Thanks to Gustav we had to evacuate for a week. Luckily, we had no major damage..just no power for almost 5 days. Needless to say, me and the kids stayed in Tennessee. On a brighter note, my sister Kaylee welcomed their second baby into the world on Thursday.
Welcome to the world Rylan Gabriel...a whopping 8lbs 11ounces. Isn't he just the cutest thing?
He is just so big....and has tons of hair:
I am sure Kaylee appreciates me putting her son on the blog in all his glory..but naked babies are so precious. Anyway, Congrats Kaylee...now go get some sleep!
I have never really thought about what I would say about myself. The only thing I can think of is that I am one tired mother of 3,and wife of one (who can take more than that?). However, I could not be more blessed!
