First Day of School 2014

Life is going by so fast these days!  I'm sorry for not filling you in on all the wonderful things we have been doing.  Today was a big day in the Jordan house so I wanted to make sure and share it with you.

Cali started Kindergarten and the Henry and Hannah started Pre-K 2 yr old class.

All 3 kids are at a private Christian school 4 miles from our house.  It wasn't our first plan for the kids, but has turned out wonderfully and will be a huge blessing for our family.

We had to wake them up an hour earlier than usual to get up, dressed, feed and out the door.  Let were not too excited about it this morning, but will get used to it. 

Cali has been beyond excited about Kindergarten.  She has been telling everyone that she was going.  School supply shopping almost sent her over the edge.  She is so bright and so excited to learn!

Cali all ready for school!

Henry and Hannah are in the same class together.  This is their first time going to a full day program.  They will eat snack at school, eat lunch and take naps at school.  My fingers are crossed for their teachers.  My vote is Hannah doesn't sleep!

Sweet Hannah ready for school.  New Minnie Mouse shoes and outfit. 

Henry was still waking up at this point.  He is getting to be such a big boy.

I haven't cried yet, but I didn't want to leave Cali's room.  Nick had to help me out the door.

Today was a half day and tomorrow will be their first full day from 7:30am-3pm.  

How did we get here so fast?

Cali is 5!

Cali turned 5 in late February!  Wow, we have a 5 year old!

Cali wanted to have a Cinderella party with her friends.  We had 15 kids plus adults attend her party at church.  There were craft stations set up for the kids to play at, we had lunch, cupcakes, balloon fun and presents.  Everyone had a blast and was worn out afterwards!

Happy Birthday Cali!  You are so loved!

February 2014

February included a trip to the beach for a family vacation, celebrating Cali's 5th birthday and fun in the snow.

Since it was the off season we were able to stay for a week at a condo right on the beach.  Nick's mom was able to come and play with us too!  It was chilly but we still had fun at the beach and the aquarium.
Our sweet family playing in the sand.

I love how the aquarium just blows their minds!  We had the whole aquarium to ourselves to discover and play in.  We went twice in one day to explore and play.

See Cali running?  See Henry staring up at the fish?  See Hannah pointing up at the fish!  Success! 

Winter has been crazy!  We will have 65 degrees and spend the afternoon playing outside and literally 3 days later there is snow on the ground.  We have had at least 3 large winter ice/snow events.  One even brought inches of snow for us to play in.

I nailed Cali with a snow ball :)

Hannah loved playing in it, for a while, then she went inside to play iPad

January 2014

Sorry for the lack of pictures the last few months!  Life is crazy to say the least.  Here are pictures from January to give you an update.

The Jordan men love each other!  Henry will copy Nick and follow him all over the house.

For New Year's we went to Maw Maw's house for greens, hog jaws, and black eyed peas.  The twins wanted to eat with Maw Maw.

The kids love to play and laugh together.  Every day is filled with laughing, giggles, screams and fits.  We are blessed!
