You Don't Skip the Middle Child!

SO I was helping Noah find some pictures for his Kindergarten timeline and, to help me sort out chronology, I used the blog as a reference. AND THEN it hit me: I never posted about his birthday! I completely skipped January through...May. Wow, that's bad. And I was so proud about only being 2-3 months behind!

How did I miss this guy?!
Now I'm going back in time (what else is new?) to make up for it. At least a little.
In January we went to see the Texas coast for the first time. We stayed at the navy base near Corpus Christi and toured the USS Lexington:

These three monkeys had a great time and we all learned a lot.

We went to the beach to say that we did it. Even though it was pretty frigid and windy.

Somehow, even after sampling the weather in regular clothes, Ellie still thought it would be a good idea to climb back in the car and get her suit on while we weren't looking.
It was a fun and memorable trip.

Noah's 5th Birthday

While waiting for his bus, Noah got a  birthday hug from his favorite sister.
As soon as the door opened when school let out, Noah's class sang Happy Birthday to him. It was hilarious to see his funny, embarrassed walk as he came outside!

Noah had a great birthday.
Isaac had some excitement in January, too: his first Cub Scout Pinewood Derby! He even won the Cub Choice Award for having an awesome tank that appeals to elementary school-aged boys. 

So that was January! If I stay up any longer, this blog will make even less sense. Good night. :)
