Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Today is Jeremy's 29th birthday. Your last year in your 20's, babe! (I'm 7-months older than Jeremy, and I don't let him forget it.)

He took the day off and took Jaydon to school this morning. Then we (I also took the day off) went to Wal-Mart for our weekly shopping spree. After that, I stayed home and cleaned house, and he went to play golf at Fossil Creek. He got 12-holes in before it was time to come back home. He said it was nice to play alone for once, and he enjoyed the time alone. I'm SO glad he was able to do that for himself on his birthday!!

We had a conference with Jaydon's teacher today at 2:45. VERY long story short, Jaydon has been having trouble focusing at school. He won't sit down for very long, and he isn't doing things immediately after he is asked. We know that our boy is VERY smart, so the goal for the past 2 years has been getting him to follow rules, and S-O-C-I-A-L-I-Z-E. We made that very clear to the teacher today - that Jaydon was not going to learn ANYTHING in Kindergarten...but getting him to learn how to socialize was #1 on our list. We let her know that Jaydon could teach her class. She said that he is ALWAYS the first one to answer a question; however, he answers without raising his hand - another thing he gets into "trouble" for. She said that she hasn't "had time" to see how smart he is. This is after I asked if he had read to her yet. I will give more details to those of you who want them about the conference through email. We did not leave there with the "warm fuzzies", but it takes SO much stress off of me to have been able to tell her what I have been feeling for the past 2 weeks.

Anyway, we "surprised" Daddy (Jeremy) with a cake, gift, and balloon today. Jaydon and I made him a spice cake - his favorite. Jaydon had everything planned out. The video below is not about what you see, (because you can't see much due to the lighting) but more about what you hear. Tell me who is more excited about the birthday - Jeremy or Jaydon? Jaydon was the one who said that we needed a balloon, party hat, cake, gift, and pizza. (We did without the pizza.)

Happy Birthday, Jeremy! I hope that we can enjoy 60 more years of these birthdays...and still be able to remember them then! hehehe


We love you SO much, and our family would not be complete without you, "BEST DADDY"!
We hope that you enjoyed your day.
