Thoughtful Thursday

Gee, this week is just escaping me.  Already Thursday.  Truly, been busy beyond belief. Trying to tie up loose lawyer ends and paperwork.  Things of that nature eat up some time.  And lots of therapy going on.  Kids had last Spanish class, tae kwon do class, and Civil War class.  So, little time to do Thoughtful Thursday but putting down what I can remember off the cuff.  More later. 

Irina-- went to help Nik sort ALL his legos.  

Max-- went to help a friend of mine move a bed to an attic.  Was thoughtful of him to do this for me. 

Bojan-- he has seen some of the homeschoolers struggling with reading comprehension and such.  He's gone to a few of them asking if they needed help on their book reports.  

Houseguest-- went to help Nik sort ALL his legos.  Trust me, a big job with all those little pieces. 

Nik-- made his friend a present.  He also saw Summer struggling with the laundry basket and went over to help her carry it.

Summer-- wanted to share her gum with me

Sofie-- Came over to give Little Guy kisses. Very thoughtful of her.  He was crying and she just wanted to make him better.  


Little Guy-- definitely giving affection.  Hugs and trying to sign I love  you.  (lots of imitating going on lately).  Also, fed me a goldfish cracker

An Angry Kind of Birthday

Okay, so going through some very old unfinished posts as well this week.  As you know, Nik is now 12yo.  This was from last year. 

I know, I'm so very far behind, I'll probably never catch up.  But, giving it a shot to be sure.  Was going to start w/ Yana since I started her post but figured I'd do a quick one on Nik instead.  His is easier to write.  And right now, I need uncomplicated.  Nik's 11th birthday is tomorrow.  Truly unreal for me to believe b/c I will forever and always see him as my baby boy.  He always was.  Always knew he'd be the last boy.  Nik counts down his b-day every year.  Loves it when Yana's comes around b/c he knows his is next.  This year, his only requests were Angry Bird requests.  He is beyond obsessed with Angry Birds.  Loves, loves, loves them!  His main requests were a lunchbox, pajamas, a backpack and water bottle.  All angry birds of course.  To give you an idea of what he wanted, you can look here.  I let them make a wish list.  Just easier then to share with others.  I need to make one for Little One next as her birthday is next week.  Yikes!  Too much growing up around this house lately.  Anyhow, here are a few pics to give you an idea of how Nik likes Angry Birds.


The anticipation is killing him.


Summer is just as intent as Nik is.


Reading cards of who it is from.  A special lady.


Nik was so dog gone happy to get an Angry Bird lunchbox.


Just admiring what he got.  Do you know he used it from that day forward.  All day long.


The Birthday Boy.  Happy to be sure!
