Russell turns 7

Notice the cake, the icing melted during the 5 minutes it took to get from the store to my van to home. Oh well it tasted great.
Our latest update on Russell, is that he is trying very hard to improve his reading. I had a chat with his teacher last month, he struggles to stay on task. After doing more research on ADD, I discovered a natural remedy called focus, for this specific problem.
We have this daily communication sheet between the teacher and I , it either has an F - for not focusing or a T - for talking. OR a smily face for a good day. Since being on the product, (it comes in a liquid we mix it with juice, twice a day) he has only had 1 F. This is huge since for the first week and a half he got F's and T's. It's helped his self confidence big time. We are so proud of him!

Slip 'N Slide

The kids needed something to do, so we got this Slip N' Slide water toy. It was actually a lot of fun. I had to show them what to do, but once they figured it out, it was non-stop fun. It came with a surf board but it didn't work as well as just running and getting a big splash.
