K's First Report Card

Kian is doing very well in school! Jamie and I met with his teacher yesterday and he went through Kian's report card with us. He is meeting his grade level (they can't give marks higher than that unless they go above and beyond for an entire semester). He even got an S+ in music!

All of what Mr. Keepes reported to us was not shocking. Kian does need to work on fine motor skills and might needs to have some occupational therapy - which thankfully will be provided through the school and done there. And he has trouble paying attention - once again not shocking. We are hoping to help him at home as much as we can with these things and continue to be encouraging.

Jamie and I are both very pleased that he has Mr. Keepes for a teacher. He seems to have a passion for teaching these little ones. And even though he has a class of 24 students he really seems to know them all very well - at least I figure that since he really has Kian pegged. Kian is one lucky kiddo!

Pumpkins, Ponies and Apple Cider

Yesterday we went to a Curtis Orchard and Pumpkin Patch to pick out pumpkins and get some apples. The place also has a kid area which we went through first. We asked Kian if he wanted to ride the ponies - he said no so we moved on.

After we picked up apples, pumpkins, fresh apple cider and of course Curtis Orchard's famous donuts of course Kian wanted a pony ride. lol Jamie brought our loot to the car and K and I headed to the ponies. It was his first time riding any animal!

Here are some photo highlights from our trip.

Seeing how tall Kian is this fall!

We're on our way to the pumpkin patch!
Most of the pumpkins were rotten so we had to head back :P

And picked out a HUGE one from the pumpkins collected by the staff.

Let's get those pumpkins clean! (I wanted a small one for myself)

Kian's first pony ride!

Weekend of Fun with Tim and the Woodlee Clan

Last weekend we traveled to Kentucky for the annual Woodlee family reunion. Luckily the time we were heading down, Kian and I were able to meet one of Jamie's good friends for the first time.

When Jamie was in high school Tim was an exchange student from Germany. He was back in the states seeing some NFL games! i have heard a lot about Tim over the years and was so happy to finally meet him. It's too bad he lives so far away! Kian LOVED him - he quickly lived up to being his Uncle Tim.

Then we were on our way back down to Corbin for the reunion. Kian had a blast seeing family again. He played a lot of Uno with his Granna and made many trips down to the playground nearby. Thankfully Aunt Ty Ty, Aunt Dreama and Uncle Rusty (a.k.a. Smack Man - don't ask because I have no idea why he calls him that lol) went down with him.

The weekend was filled with cards, laughter, visiting with friends, walks, and getting reacquainted. Jamie and I had not been to a reunion since I was pregnant with Kian 6 years ago!
