Dirk had his Kindergarten checkup this morning. We pushed it off so long so that he could spend 10 days at Gran and Grandpa's house. I still hear stories from him of how fun it was! He had such a good time. And came back with way too many toys! :o)
Dirk is 49 1/2 inches tall, and 61 1/2 pounds. He said he wants to be big like Dad. I think he's on his way! I can't believe he's over 4 feet tall! He's going to be looking me in the eye in just a few short years! He was a real trooper. He had to have 4 shots and have his finger pricked. He was not so happy about any of it, but received lots of little goodies for being so brave and not crying. I asked him if he wanted a strawberry shake or a new coloring book for being so good, he obviously wanted a new coloring book. That boy can color like there is no tomorrow! I should scan a few of his drawings and show them off. He's pretty good for 5!
This afternoon we head up to Loyola for a conference with his teacher. That should be interesting with 3 kids. I was not able to find a sitter as of yet, but I figured there is plenty of toys in a Kindergarten room to keep them all occupied!
