one year later

I vividly remember my last post last winter. I was so sick of posting pictures of the winter and the snow. I felt like there was nothing new to say because we were either stuck in the house or outside in the snow. I told myself once it became warmer I would post again, but once it did we were outside and busy all of the time. The summer, fall and the holidays are all a blur. I can't believe how fast this year has gone by. So many people have said to me that the time when the are home with you goes fast and they were so right. The last couple of months I've been helping out at Oliver' school and seeing the little kids makes it all the more real. Oliver is getting so big. He turned 4 in December. He is still the same sweet, silly, stubborn, easy going, chatterbox that he has always been. He is so funny. Constantly saying the craziest things. Somehow he has picked up the phrase "oh my Jesus" and he uses it appropriately. He still has another year before kindergerten and I'm so glad. I don't think either one of us are ready for him to be gone all day.

He still loves all things cars, but recently he is very into knights. There is a new show called Mike the knight. It has changed his life. He has been telling us he wants to be a knight when he grows up. I was subbing for on the teachers at school on Monday. We were there all day. He was tried and was whining to watch tv. His teacher, Jane heard him. While he was with her Oliver told her he wanted to be a knight when he grows up. Jane told him that knights don't watch tv. Without missing a beat Oliver told her he was still little so he was a knight in training and it was ok to watch tv.

Tomorrow we are going on vacation. We are going to the beach. The end of last winter we said this winter we were going away somewhere warm. Of course, this winter has been as far as I'm concerned amazing. Anthony and Oliver are very disappointed at the lack of snow. Anthony said it is like if we had a summer without sun. I don't agree, but I'm excited to go away.
