I had a quick conference with Tim's teacher this week. Tim LOVES his teacher (I had to talk him out of inviting her to his birthday party) and loves his school and it has been such a good year for him. His teacher went over his recent assessments and said that he is top of the class. He is off their charts for reading and aced all the other exams too. I take no credit for this, he is a serious sponge. What makes me even more proud is that he got an excellent report for behavior and declared to be very polite. Two more weeks of school, a five week break and then he starts 1st grade. Wow!

Joe has an awesome sense of humor. He comes up with stuff to make me laugh every day. He and Carolina were telling me knock-knock jokes in the car the other day. Here's his (he doesn't quite have the form right):
J: Knock, Knock. Who's there?
Me: Who's there?
J: Monkey who.
Me: Monkey who?
J: Monkey who, who, aaah, aaah (his monkey sounds)
He also makes great baby elephant sounds (just picture quieter, higher-pitched). The kid was hardly talking when we left Maryland and now is in full-sentence, constant conversation mode. I love it! This is the oldest-youngest child I've had so far (make sense?). I'm really enjoying an older, more capable group of kids. Of course, that will all change in about 12 weeks when our newborn is here.
