The Prize Box...

In the play area at school

Madison is progressing nicely in school.  She LOVES going!  In fact, she's sort of sad when it's not a school day.  She has a hard time figuring out what to do with herself.  She still wants to rise and shine at a ridiculous hour!

We're pleased that she is apparently on her best behavior at school.  Every day she has been receiving a piece of candy as a reward for good behavior.  On Fridays, the students who have been on their best behavior for the entire week, get to choose something from "The Prize Box".

I don't know exactly what all is in the prize box, but one week Madison came home with an Easter prize, then the following week she had a Christmas prize.  Last Friday she brought home the most unusual prize so far!  It was a Snack Pack pudding cup!

Madison was at her Nana's house for lunch after school on Friday. After lunch, she announced that she had a dessert in her bookbag!  Sure enough, there tucked among the school papers was the cup of pudding that she had chosen as her weekly prize.  She enjoyed every delicious spoonful, I'm sure! 

How can you top that?  I can hardly wait to see...By the way, in case you haven't guessed,  Madison loves pudding!

Our Little Boy Enjoys Big Boy Toys...

Cade's mom snapped this photo on a recent trip to Lowes.  I laughed out loud when I saw it!  Christina commented that Cade loves Lowes as much as he loves Toys R Us.  From the look on his face, I'm inclined to agree with her!

I wonder if Cade will be this excited over a lawnmower in a dozen more years....If he follows in his daddy's footsteps, the answer will be a definite NO!  We can always hope!
