I don't like turkey or ham

After a nice trip to the library I'd take the hasty kids to my favorite supermarket, Shoprite. We were on line for about 7 minutes waiting for lunch meat; 1 pound of ham and turkey each. I let everyone try both and all loved it except with Molly. She was hesitant to taste either but decided she preferred the ham over the turkey she had. What a great opportunity to obtain another option for lunches during the week.

Molly also informed me that she loves Peanut Butter & Jelly (PBJ) and would try salad. Both like carrot sticks and Gabriella doesn't prefer PBJ. My hands are full (as usual) but at least I am getting better at the likes and dislikes of my children. Oh, Quentin eats just about anything. Sorry BJs, you're just not fitting the bill anymore.

Can't wait until October when I start introducing nuts, seeds, and dry fruit for the many adventures of homemade trailmixes. Stay tuned for that post.

Parent Teacher Night

The second week of September Molly and Gabriella had their Parent Teacher night. This night at their new school displayed the classrooms, teachers, and goings on of their day. Both teachers were nice and seemed organized. They also both commented on how smart our children are.

Molly received descriptions like: smart, high reading level and shy. While Gabriella received descriptions like: happy, energetic and lovable. It was a pleasure to meet with their teachers and see their school. I am excited for this new adventure for my girls and look forward to their growth.

Quentin got sick and vomited for the first time last Friday. I felt horrible for my little boy to have gone through that. I wish I was there. I even wish I was the person to have picked him up from school but the next best person did, my wife.

It seems that he had a 24 hour stomach bug that slowly infected all of us toward the end of the weekend. My wife is suffering as I type. I wish I could have avoided that but we had to let it run its course. Molly and Gabriella felt it slightly but Gabriella got sicker.

The Hasty Kids pulled through and have thus earned the name SuperKids!

Missing the Hasty Kids

Oh how I do miss the Hasty Kids. I miss all of their warm hugs. I miss their quirky ways (most not worth mentioning). I miss praising them learning doing good things for others and themselves.

Molly, I'm so proud of you for being brave and playing right field in your first of many softball games. I'm mentioning you in this post because of the milestone of your first major sport game. The others will have their time but you are blazing the trail in so many ways that you make me proud to call you my daughter.

First Day of Daycare

I dropped my son off at daycare this morning and without hesitation he said bye. The maturity in my son (as this is his second daycare) is overwhelming me. I miss him! I'm proud to say that he is growing up to be a big boy. This is evident by his willingness to eat his pop tart and be the Pioneer at daycare, as he's the first to arrive this morning. I love you Quentin!

The end of Summer 2013

The summer has ended and now the Hasty kids are all off to their respective schools. Molly and Gabriella attended their new school last week so tomorrow won't be the first day for them. Quentin, however, will start his new daycare tomorrow and I'm super excited.

After being home with Dad all summer, and Mom for the last week, he's spoiled once again. He is good at having a routine so I'm sure he will be alright with the new one we have planned for him during the school year. As we finished off this summer strong at the pool (see the picture below) we are ready for a year of firsts and hard work to come...
