Happy Birthday Caitlyn!

Caitlyn one year ago today:

My baby girl turned one today. I can hardly believe it. Such a precious baby. We love you Cailtyn Rae! I will post the messy cake face pictures tomorrow. I was mandated to work a couple of hours at work so I have to run.

Meet Scotch!

We are becoming horse people! It is so much fun. I have to admit that I know nothing about horses but it sure if fun learning. We are "sub-leasing" a horse. Which basically mean we take care of somebody elses horse on days they can't get down to Appleatchee to care for him. It works out great for us, Emilee has been begging for her own horse but we are not quite ready to take one on full time yet! This is suppose to be Em's thing but Cody is having fun learning right along with her.

Is it Wednesday already???

It has been a busy week. There has been lots of overtime at work. Emilee is out of school now so she hangs out with me most days while I sleep. Well, sorta sleep. One eye open keeping track of her and one eye closed trying to catch a little sleep. It seems like with the warmer weather the kids are going non-stop. Running, swimming, riding bikes... they crash by the end of the day. Emilee started swim lessons. It is fun to watch her. She has a lot to learn. I kinda feel a little bad. I threw her in summer swim league with all these kids who have been taking lessons for years, she has had nothing. She is having fun though. That is what matters most. I am off to work tonight for my last shift then I get my long weekend. I have one overtime shift but other than that I am off until Monday evening. We have high hopes of starting our kitchen remodel. So I will be sure to post pictures of that if it comes to be. That's it for now, Later.

Kindergarten Graduation

The proud graduate.
Emilee and Josie, best buddies.

Emilee and her teacher, Mrs. Vereb.

My baby girl has finished kindergarten. Can you believe it? She had a little party in her class complete with graduation caps, cookies and even her report card. She did great. I can't help but be so very proud of her. The kids sang songs and then her teacher interviewed each kid. Here is what Emilee had to say:

"My favorite thing about kindergarten is making the Indian hats, the ice cream party and recess."
"My favorite color is purple."
"My favorite shape is a heart."
"At home I like to do my homework."
"My favorite food is corn and mashed potatoes."
"In twenty years I will be twenty, and I will be able to walk to school."
Will I be married? "I don't know." Will I have children? "Yes, I will have girls."
Will I have a pet? " Yes, I will have a dog."
Where will I live? " In a house."

Congratulations Emilee on finishing your first year of school.

Silverwood, well almost.

photo found on

So our annual trip to Silverwood was rained out! Can you believe it? We drove over knowing the weather was going to be iffy, we woke up this morning and it was pouring. The kids were a bit disappointed but we tried to make the best of the situation. We went to the new Cabellas store in Post Falls. The kids were able to catch fish in a little pool turned fishing pond. They got there faces painted and shoot a virtual gun. It was pretty neat. Then we went to Chuck E Cheeses. The kids LOVED it. The games were just the right age for Cody and Emilee. They earned there tickets and happily turned them in for their junk, I mean prizes. Then we enjoyed a relaxing car ride home where we listened to the sound of Caitlyn screaming for two hours straight. All is quiet now, I am exhausted. Cody and Emilee did great at the motel last night, Caitlyn not so much. Good night y'all.

Life is Busy!

A quick check in as I dash out the door for work. Life has been busy here at the Wentworth household. Caitlyn is threatening to take off walking any day now. She thinks nothing is off limits and laughs at us when we tell her no. Cody spends his days learning to ride his bike, dig in the dirt and would spend every waking second of his day in the camper with Grandpa if I would let him. Emilee is loving her horse riding lessons. She is having a difficult time with the unfortunate death of one of the kindergarten teachers at her school. I have never had to explain the concept of death to her before this, its been hard. On a happier note, we are very excited to be going to Silverwood Theme park this weekend. The kids are counting the days. That's it about it for now. Later.
