Beck passed his 1st grade reading level test as is now reading Chapter books so I said I would buy him something. We got to Walmart and the things he wanted was more than I said I would spend, me being a cheapskate and all, so he said he would earn the rest of the money. He worked really hard doing lots and lots of jobs and learned a lot in the process. Like not crying over spilled garbage! He is so happy to have earned his Batman legos!

Beck had his 7 year check up today. He is 3'9" and 43 lbs. He really wanted to fail his eye exam and get glasses, but he had 20/20 vision, hopefully it lasts for a little bit at least, considering Stephen and I both have terrible eyesight!

Paisley wore my dress to church lady Sunday. My dress from when I was a little 4 year old. She looked so cute! It's reasons like this why I understand why I keep things and am a somewhat mini hoarder!

Beck has had 3 years of Valentine Tea Parties at AIM School. This is his last year and it makes me sad! He invited his friend, Ryker, as his special guest and ate lots of sugar and even though Ryker doesn't smile, they had lots of fun! Even Paisley and Penelope tag along. The last picture is of Penelope giving her "boyfriend," Mateo, who is younger and smaller than her a Valentine. She loves to kiss on him!

We just got back from a 12 day trip to Florida! We had so much fun together as a family and visiting Uncle Feliz and Aunt Stacy. Feliz was graduating from school. We spent 4 days at fun filled exhausting Disney World where we met many characters and got their autographs, rode lots of rides, learned that the Bug's Life movie/experience is NOT my kids idea of fun, visited the beach, and Penelope was sick most of the time with a very high temp, so she was content to just ride around in the stroller and nap. Of course she would feel better to eat and eat and eat! Some of her favorites were ribs and the giant turkey leg at DisneyWorld. We visited the Everglades and held baby gators and large snakes and met Winter the Dolphin from the movie Dolphin Tale. Beck got to celebrate his 7th birthday with many chocolate desserts every time we ate out and he got sung to! I am making a photo book with many more pictures and details considering I took almost 800 pictures....

Walking out of Hollywood theme park in Disneyworld, I was asking Beck if he was going to spend some of his money tomorrow at our past day at the Magic Kingdom. His reply, "I am just going to save it because I don't want to spend all my money on me, I want to do jobs and keep earning money and then help you to buy the things that you want." Bless his heart, he just made me the proudest mama... Talk about selflessness! Love him!
