 last week nate decided my pantry was not organized and he took it upon himself to organize it for me. he did a great job, and totally reminds me of chris! haha

he even left notes and a chart to show me where things go. hahaha
 ellie is loving her school, she enjoys work books and learning.  im still not pushing it on her, i let her come to me and ask. which she does almost every day.  some days shes just not into it, and i let her go and play, other days she cant get enough! 
 she read this whole sentence, minus the word "share" all by herself!
 i wish i knew of these popcicle stick sight words when nate was little. ellie loves them
 i had to take pics of her because i think she's amazing. and soon those perfect teeth will be falling out!  stop time! i cant keep up
 on sat i surprised the kids by going to the movies, and preplanned friends to meet us there.  ellie found 3 gold coins and brought them to me. she said "mom! i found 3 shiny gold coins, now i can pay for you, me and nate to go to the movies"  the gold coins came to .7 cents.  exactly enough to buy us our movie tickets. she kept the coins in her hand until we got to the theater, then passed them to me to pay.  adorable. the guy at the counter totally went along with it

 ellie with her gold coins
 it was stupid cold on sat.  this is with out the wind chill!
 ellie had her first date! haha
 nate too!
i was able to have a quick chat with aralee, and she took nate home for the rest of the day/evening.  awesome!
