First Grade Program

Thursday was Spencer's program at school. This is a picture of him waving to Jake and I when he came in. He did a really good job on his part "a friend is like an owl, beautiful and wise". (I didn't get it either.) They sang lots of songs about friendship, "Let's Get Together", "With a Little Help From my Friends". After it was over he said to me, "Mom are you so proud of me?" I am proud of him.

Happy Birthday Spencer

(editors note: Spencer's birthday was on April 29, and I know I'm a little late in posting.) Spencer turned 7 years old, I can't even believe it. He got just what he wanted-a Nintendo DS and an animal game. Grandma and Grandpa Maynard gave him a gift card to get whatever he wanted and Grandma and Grandpa Coleman gave him tickets to see Walking with Dinosaurs when it was here in January. Spencer is a sweetheart in our family. He is usually willing to help with anything, especially if it's making a treat. He's a good big brother to Jake and a really good big cousin. Spencer loves to read, especially about dinosaurs and animals and really likes school. His favorites are: Blue and yellow, Phineas and Ferb, Steak and raviolli, Sea World and Yellowstone, Magic Treehouse books and Zoobooks, and playing video games and outside. When he grows up he wants to be a zookeeper. We are so happy to have him in our family.
