Report Cards

Madison and Ally both came home with report cards last week.  They are both doing really well.  I feel like this is the first year that Madison is having to try a little harder to do well.  Madison and Ally both had almost all E's. M's mean "meeting expectations" or "at grade level".  E's mean that they are excelling.  Pretty much if they have a  hundred percent they are excelling.  They are both smart little cookies and are doing very well.

Matthew may not live to see his next birthday

Matthew has turned into a little tornado lately.  I got out of the shower the other day and found that he had pushed the computer chair over to my dresser.  He covered himself in bag balm and then proceded to cover a statue of Christ also with bag balm.  He was so happy with himself and that the statue had sheep on it.  

He also can't sit on my lap at the computer any more because he won't stop pushing buttons and trying to do taxes with him yesterday was fun. Not only does he want to push buttons, but to throw papers around and then write on some.  I put him down and told him to go find Emily while I finished.  It took me another 20 minutes and I came down and found that he had dumped the entire sugar bucket on the floor.  Emily was standing on her head on the couch and I asked her if she knew what he was doing.  She simply said, "Yes."

Some days I think I need a vacation ...

ETA:  I left Matthew and Emily home while I took Madison and Ally to a baptism last night.  When I got home Charlie just looked at me and said Matthew really is as crazy as I said.  He just wants to see and touch EVERYTHING and know how everything works.  Last week he put the dust pan in the microwave and started it.  Thankfully I was close and caught that one!
