This is my random update post! Mackenzie is cutting her 6 year molars. She is almost 6 1/2 years old and now weighs 50 lbs and is 47 3/4 inches tall. Josiah is almost 4 3/4 years old and weighs 41 lbs and is 43 3/4 inches tall. They are growing like crazy! Josiah is learning to read real sentences and brings books home from school. He is doing great with his reading and will do well in Kindergarten, just like Mackenzie did. I am so thankful for their ability to read! They both still have some cute words or expressions that are priceless and I'm sure they will correct or outgrow soon, but one Mackenzie said recently was in reference to Josiah in Aunt Mallory's upcoming wedding, "ring barrier," instead of ring bearer. Too cute. She is looking forward to being a flower girl in Aunt Mallory's wedding in June. I have a list...somewhere...of a few other things the kids have said lately that are certainly worth recording; however, I can't seem to locate the list tonight, so I guess this completes my random post! :)
I will say that both kids were out of school today. We. had. a. blast. They have always wanted to tour a Dinosaur Museum that is not too far away. So, we loaded up for a spontaneous trip to the Dinosaur Museum today! On arrival, we discovered that it was closed and is relocating. No worries, they picked Wonder Works as another place they have always wanted to go inside. After touring Wonder Works, we headed to the Nascar Go Karts next! I think that was my favorite part of the day. Both kids are tall enough to ride the smallest cars on the smallest track. They loved it! This was their very first time to do that, too. Then we went into the Stride Rite outlet. Lo and behold, they had a half off their lowest price sale going on today! We bought 3 pairs of Stride Rite tennis shoes (regularly about $45 each) for a grand total of $32. One pair was $12, one pair $10, and one pair $7. Josiah has shoes for starting Kindergarten in the fall! Couldn't pass up a deal like that, and he will eventually grow into the ones we bought for him. ;) After a little shopping, we headed home for supper, baths, and bed. I loved our spontaneous day. The one thing that would have made the day just perfect would have been David. We missed him as he was at work. We do, however, appreciate the work he does for us! I am so thankful for my precious family. I pray that we may glorify the Lord each day.
