So picture day was the day after we came back from our Costa Rica vacation...I'd forgotten about picture day so I didn't dress them up for the even. Anyway, still decent pics...though I only bought the digital copy.

Nicolas tripped while jumping on his sister's bed. His tooth pierced a hole right by the corner of his mouth. I had to take him to the emergency room for stitches...there was so much blood! The kid fell asleep in the ER before the doctor even looked at him. He slept through the exam and the glueing (thank God no stitches) of the cut. This kid's a total badass!

So there's a tooth that's been torturing us...well, Nick first, me second. Last night, Nicolas woke up crying, drooling, pulling on his gums...obviously bothered by the one remaining canine tooth (bottom right) cutting it's way through his gums.
After an hour and half of sitting in his bedroom rocking him back to sleep as he twisted, turned, fussed, cried, screamed, and repeated throwing his pacifier only to immediately retrieve it and pop it back into his mouth, I gave up and took him down to the living room. I've had this rule ever since Aiden was born that in the middle of the night, we do not engage in any other activities ...the lights must stay off, we must talk in a whisper voice (if at all), we don't play with toys, we simply read and rock until the child is back to sleep. So last night, I broke my own rule (I guess I gave up) and took Nick downstairs, we played with his airplane, we played at the train table, we read books, and we built structures with blocks. When his pain got really bad, we even watched TV to get his mind off his gums. After about two hours of this nonsensical activity he was finally sleepy enough to go back upstairs and get into bed. The next morning Master Nicolas slept in until 8:30 but I had to be up at 6:30 to get Aiden and Sky off to school.

Another thing I love about where we live - wooded trails in every direction....all just steps away from our house.
We just discovered this trail this morning...the kids loved the creeks, fallen-tree bridges, dear tracks, fox tracks, owl siting, woodpeckers pecking, and a hawk carrying off a FAT frog in it's talons.
Aiden kept stopping for pictures...I've taught him well.
Nicolas is just like Aiden and Sky...he prefers to hike unassisted...he likes the challenge of climbing, crawling, jumping, scaling any obstacle that comes his way.
Always nice to hike and sing.
training in session
Aiden showing us his balance...another TKD skill.
My little mountain lion..
My girl got cold on the way back home so I gave her my sweater...she looks good in ANYTHING.
