Well things have been super busy around here in 2013!  Hunter lost his first tooth on January 8th.  
Ms. Roxie in the school office pulled his first tooth, and she is the same lady who pulled several of my teeth when I was in elementary school.  She is one of the sweetest ladies on earth and I love that she is still there and Hunter and I can share some of the same memories.

Hunter had bootcamp during P.E. in the fall and so we now use some of those same exercises as punishment these days.  And believe me, we have to use them a lot!!!  Here they are doing wall sits. {**I highly recommend this type of punishment for boys.  Most of the time they get into trouble because they have so much energy they need to expend that is gets used in the wrong way.  So with this, they get a consequence AND burn energy:} These boys are a HANDFULL, and that might be putting it mildly.

We got one little snow this winter.  Not enough to stick all day, but enough to coat the ground for the morning.  Bella never knows what to do with it.  She tries to play with it, eat it, sniff it...she is trying to figure out what in the world to do with it! 

The boys love playing in our woods behind our house.  And I think it is great for the two of them when they go back there.  But what never dawned on me was to make sure they didnt open our neighbors gate and let their DOGS OUT!!!!!   Why on earth would Drake do that?  It is things like that, that you dont think you have to tell them NOT to do.    He casually mentioned it while we were eating dinner that night.  Needless to say we called our neighbors to make sure they had their dogs and to let them know it wasn't a robber...just our 5 year old.  Luckily our neighbors are very nice.

SO Drakey wrote them this note.  

**Another good consequence for my boys.  Writing it out means taking time out to apologize and really think about what they did was wrong (and hopefully never do it again). 
 Plus they can work on handwriting:!**  Believe me, we have tried every punishment in the book so if you are ever in need of any ideas, we have plenty as we have to use them very FREQUENTLY with these two.
