The kids and I were at the dollar store a week or so ago. Riley saw some HULK hands. You put your hands inside and they are like boxing gloves. They make some cool noises and he has wanted a pair for a while now. We were there to buy gifts for someone else, so he knew he couldn't have them. This is what he said as he has the hands on his. "Oh mom, look at these. I have wanted a pair of these for years." I just laughed.
Well his morning he saw his remote controlled car that has been sitting on the counter charging. He sees it and says, "There's my car. I haven't played with it in years." How funny huh? What does he think "years" means. Like a really long time? LOL

Riley LOVES to take my camera and start snapping pictures. He will take like 50 pictures of totally random stuff. I didn't realize he had taken my camera until I downloaded my pictures. I think all of these pictures say alot about who Riley is. I thought I would share. He is such a funny boy. This is such a sweet picture. It's a little washed out though.
Train pictures. He loves trains-like his daddy.
All of is hero's.
His sister Raegan. Most of the time these two are fighting like cats and dogs, but sometimes I will hear them playing and being so nice and sweet to each other. He loves his imagination. This is a picture I took of him this morning. I asked him who he was today and he said, "A Power Ranger." How creative huh? My hunny boy is one of a kind. He has attitude and is very stubborn-but as you can see he is a very special, wonderful boy. I LOVE YOU RILEY.

Another "ballet" move.
Ready to go to ballet.
My Raegan is such a "natural" when it comes to dance. She LOVES it. She walks around the house singing and doing her ballet. So, when dance classes started I put her in a ballet, tap, jazz class. She absolutely loves it. She got to get her very own ballet shoes and tap shoes. She wears them around the house always. What a sweet, fun girl to have as the oldest girl. I always wanted to be a dancer when I was little, and I hope she always loves it and does well at it.

Russ and I have started something with the kids. It started with Randal. Randal is a very good student. He has gotten pretty much straight "A's" since we got him. Which was a huge change from before we got him. We wanted to reward him in some way for his good work. We decided to take him out on a "date." Now that Riley is in school we have started this with him. On his first progress report he didn't get ALL good marks. Now, he is only in Kindergarten and he does REALLY GOOD. On his second progress report he got perfect marks. We told him mommy and daddy would take him on a date. He was really excited. I think this really encourages them to do their best. I don't want them to feel like we expect too much from them, but that we support their efforts.
