March's Bits

 Noah had a great time celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday.  Each one of these kids is so sweet, and I love that our paths cross at church and at school.
 Luke and Elyse didn't want to be left out of the picture taking.  They have become buddies as they wait for their kindergarten siblings at pick up time.
 Luke found a grasshopper when we were out shopping.  He thought it was incredibly cool, insisted on taking a picture to show dad, and then freaked out as it started to crawl up his arm.

Noah got his second trimester report card.  I just loved and appreciated Mrs. Chan's comments.  He is such a good boy.
 Leah loves being on the move.  One day as we were playing outside she went in the house, found her coat, and brought it out to me.  This smart girl knows in cold weather, you've got to have a coat.  Love it!
 Chasing her around during baseball games keeps us busy and distracted, but Leah is a girl whose exploring cannot be contained!

 Just maintaining her 'Rascal Baby' status right here.

 And see that box?  We're getting our house ready to sell.  So I've been trying to pack up the things we don't use much to clear out the clutter.  I love this girl, but she makes getting a project done almost impossible sometimes.

Nate declared it was Pizza Night one Saturday and got to work making dinner with the boys.

We celebrated Kate's birthday and Leah was so excited when Kate shared one of her birthday crowns.

I thought you didn't play baseball in the rain, but Noah's game just kept going until all of the innings were over.  We were soaked.  I was annoyed and Luke was happy as could be.
 I've probably asked a hundred times to not sit in this basket.  After asking Luke to please, once again, remove himself he responded with, "No, Mom I can't! We're playing Jesus. I'm James being a fisher of men like Jesus (Noah) told me to be."  Carry on then.

Family Math Night at Noah's school was a success and the boys loved their first try at Connect Four.

Leah had her first visit to the dentist.

Luke had his first cavity.  It's actually the first cavity for any of the kids in this family.  He is a cooperative, interested kid, but the unfamiliarity of the sounds and poking around in his mouth made for one scared, anxious kid.  Tears just streamed down his face as he tried to hold still despite being afraid.  So naturally, all of that warranted a sprinkle donut when we were done.  I love that brave little boy and his numb cheek so much!

Noah had a mole removed from his face.  This was while we were waiting for the topical and injectable numbing medications to take effect.  Life is good and waiting is never a problem for this boy when he's got an iPad in hand.
This is the after with skin glue on top of stitches. The doctor just kept saying he couldn't believe how cooperative and still this amazing six year old was during the whole procedure.  That's just Noah.

It's going to take months for the scarring to fade and even out with his skin color, but hopefully the whole thing will be hardly noticeable by this time next year.  Choosing to scar your kid's face is a stressful decision!
