b is for button.

home preschool is going really well so far. we're on to the letter c tomorrow and corbin is doing great. sometimes he fusses a little at the beginning but he always gets into whatever activity is planned for the day. he's not so much into practicing writing but he loves changing our weather chart and anything that involves glue! corbin explored his b basket many times a day and he's even been pointing out the letters we've learned when we're out and about. 
this week we went to the beach and had story time on a tugboat too!!
really proud of my little boy!

i love this picture with my whole heart.

bed time can sometimes be the most frustrating time of the day. i'm ready to go unwind downstairs to spend time with ryan or to just go to sleep and these two won't settle down. i've been trying to just go with it because moments like this picture usually come out of it. my two kids acting like the best of friends. making each other laugh, hugging, and kissing. things that don't happen too often during the day when layla wants to act like king kong all over the line of trucks corbin has spent time lining up so perfectly.

a is for apple.

favorite color: green
favorite food: strawberries
what do you want to be when you grow up: work at the husky store. 
(his dad has a second job there.)

we're starting easy. he's not much into doing anything other than playing trucks/cars/planes but did really well in our set "school" time today while sister napped with promises of play-doh after. a letter a week is what we're starting with and we'll see where that leads us.

day trip to mount st. helens!

beedee and corbin had been planning a trip to mount st. helens all summer. with lots of busy schedules we didn't make it until a few days before school started but it was the most perfect, clear day to go! we stopped at the visitors center and walked through the museum and watched a movie about the volcano in their theater before heading to the johnston ridge observatory to get a closer look! corbin loves learning about volcanoes but is also a little weary of them since he knows the damage they can do. with some reassurance the mountain won't be exploding he was ready to go explore it! the drive up to the observatory was absolutely beautiful! i wish i wasn't driving so i could have taken a zillion pictures of the scenery.

corbin's fourth birthday celebration!

we had the funnest time celebrating corbin's fourth birthday. he started the day with his special requested birthday breakfast of lucky charms, a cereal i never usually let him have. i let him fill his bowl as much as he wanted, he ate all the marshmallows, and then told me his tummy hurt. haha then we were off to beedee and papa's house for some present opening before we headed to fox hollow farm. except corbin was so into playing with all his new toys we never made it that far. he was more than okay with that though.
 his other request was to have a root beer float at xxx root beer drive in so at dinner time we headed there for some greasy food and root beer floats! i'd heard they do a fun celebration for people's birthdays so i was even more excited about his choice but when the time came and our waiter came and scooped corbin up and took him to the front of the restaurant and started decorating him he kinda lost it. afterwards he told us he thought the waiter was taking him. so sad. poor kid is learning about strangers and even though we were all RIGHT THERE the thought was in his mind. made for some funny (after the fact) pictures.

happy fourth birthday corbin!

layla's first birthday celebration!

we celebrated layla's first birthday at the zoo just like we did for corbin's first birthday! this year has gone by so fast it's hard to believe my baby is toddling around with her own sweet little personality. i'll have to catch up on her monthly posts and fill in all the fun stuff she's been up to.
afterwards we stopped by our favorite local cupcake joint to sing her happy birthday and let her dig into the sugary goodness!
