Happy Ground Hog's Day

I love reading to see whether or not Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow! I remember in school always doing an art project on this day! It was always such fun!

I doubt Xavier even hears about it at school today. Speaking of things he'll never hear at school....how many of you parents with older children have realized that they are no longer teaching cursive writing in public school? How are these kids ever going to be able to sign their names? You can't sign loan documents, a marriage license, a driver's license, or any legal paper without a signature. Not just printing your name. It's a sad sad world in the public education system in America.

So I'm sitting here watching Sesame Street with Naia and all of a sudden I hear, dink, dink. You know the sound from any Law & Order show. And out comes Det. Elliot Stabler to talk about the mail! Too funny! Like those kids even know that he plays a detective on t.v.! I'm sure that was a little treat for the mothers out there......

Paxton is taking about 7 steps unasssisted now! I was working on his baby book last night and it's crazy how all of the pages are already quickly getting filled up! He also has 6 teeth right now. Four on the bottom and two on the top.

Naia is getting obsessed with writing us letters. It's nothing by curvy lines but, she will read them to us and it's always so funny to hear what she's wanting to tell us. I just got a letter from her that says, "I love mommy, daddy, and Xavier, and even Paxton. And I saw a rainbow." Too cute! She's also walking around in her snow white high heels today! She's such a girly girl!

Happy Groundhog Day! I've got a little "groundhog day" post coming later. You know, I think Sesame Street pretty much rocks... but now, this pretty much ensures that they rock! I'm going to have to see if I can find that clip online...

I cannot believe what they have cut out of public schools - it makes me so sad.

Really? No cursive? Our kids learn it in third grade... all year long. (My son was just in third grade last year, so it's still happening here.) Maybe it's a district thing and you can protest?

BTW, just following your blog as we await our referral. Thanks for sharing!
