We left 2014 behind and welcomed 2015 by dressing as Hippies and attending the Wagester’s New Years Eve Party. As always Issac & Josie enjoyed the time with their friends while Tyler & I enjoyed time with our friends. Always a win-win situation.
The kids got new bikes for Christmas from Grandma Laura & Grandpa Mark. Josie wants to ride her new princess bike every day! Issac is still growing in to his new bike so he still uses his smaller bike for the most part. We’ve been making regular trips to the Green River Trail & West Feniwick Park so the kids can ride freely.
In January Josie started taking Ballet classes. She goes once a week for an hour to attend class with four other girls. She enjoys it and does fairly well for a bull in a china shop. Josie tends to be rushed and heavy on her feet, both things we are working on improving but if there is a large thump on stage during the June recital, I will knowingly assume it came from Josie.
Issac continues to thrive in all day Kindergarten. In January, he & I worked together to create a poster so that he could participate in his school’s Reading Fair. It was fun to see some of the older kids creations because I know they had less parental assistance. It was also interesting to walk around to see what kind of children’s books are currently popular. Sadly, I didn’t see any posters on my favorite series; The Boxcar Children or The babysitters Club.
We wrapped up January with a trip to the Woodland Park Zoo. We have had a membership to the zoo for the past four years & have accustomed to our own route skipping over the boring birds and spending the majority of our time in the African Savannah & Trail of Vines. This trip Issac lead the way, reading the map, and taking turns in picking exhibits with Josie by asking her what she wanted to see next. Issac located the picnic tables for us to take a lunch break and even pointed out good spots for pictures.
