Hayden update...

My little man is starting Kindergarten and T-ball on Monday! He is growing up way too fast. He met his teacher and had his assesment and did really well. He is very smart with numbers, letter sounds are kind of hard for him. We went to Back to School night and turned in all his paperwork and he gave the teacher some Clorox wipes for her room. I really like his teacher, Miss Eldredge. I am a little overwhelmed with all the stuff I need to help him with at home, but I really want him to learn to read faster so I am going to try and help him every night. He really wants to read and it is something that is hard for him. I am excited to help out in his classroom, his VIP day is on his birthday so I am going to go in and play a game and bring treats for his class. I also signed up to do a presentation on Norwegian Holiday Traditions in December..... I guess I can Google it. :) We do have some Norwegian heritage, but we don't follow any traditions. Maybe we will start this year! I will post some pictures next week when he goes to school on the bus for the first time!

My dream house

I really want to remodel my house.... if only it didn't cost so much and take so much time. Here are some of my ideas.

I want to redo the outside of my house and add a front porch. I want it to be a green color scheme.
I want to do a more traditional cape cod style siding with different kinds of siding in different colors and also add some brick or stone. I want to have the decorative trimmed corners as well.
I really want to finish my kitchen. I would have to do the whole main floor though because I want wood throughout.... I don't know when I will do it but I like these ideas.
Someday I will have my dream house. I hope it is at least within the next 10 years. ;)
