    HAHA Julie! They probably will. Miles eats, sleeps, and breathes trains! For real! ((I have to cut toast/bread with a train cookie cutter ))
    BTW, you need to share a picture post, don't you?

    Jackie, was wondering about that! That's cool DH will be able to come along!

    Cali, K does seem crazy. Will he ride the bus?

    Melanie, that's great that things are going better for I! Sorry about the potty training! We used to give Miles change to put in his piggy bank. Maybe worth a shot? ((We are STILL dealing with poop issues with him)). I'm hoping Vivi can poop-train him someday.
    M hasn't shown too much interest in super heros yet. Is your dh into them at all? Mine isn't, maybe that's why? He recently wanted me to make him a cape out of his blanket, but he has never watched any so I'm not real sure what that was about. Super Why maybe? LOL

    My husband is not really into that kind of stuff. He will watch movies and such, but he doesn't own any superhero stuff or anything. Isaiah started the superhero stuff a tad before K, but it became big once he hit 1st grade or so. And Legos started in 1st grade and took off in a big way last year during 2nd grade. You just never know where their interests will be, but Isaiah loved all kinds of trains until around 1st grade and then he seemed to outgrow them. He still likes them, but not with the same intensity and joy as when he was 4. Harry Potter is starting to be a big thing with the kids in his grade. I am the mean mom who says he needs to wait to read it because there are so many good book series out there for kids his age. I do not want him to read Harry Potter and refuse to read for some time. That has happened to a few friends who let their children read the series in third grade. I told him that if he reads a set amount of books that we both agree upon, he can read Harry Potter.

    No, our district doesn't have buses because of budget cuts! I was just reading up on your little one's interests.... I find it funny how they stick to something. T loves "choo choo trains" and most other types of cars/trucks. J is now into Lego's, Imaginext toys, superheroes, star wars and transformers... Aside from a few books, he really hasn't been exposed to superheroes, star wars or transformers at home...a lot of this comes from his peer group at school.

    HI all, sorry I haven't checked in in a while, its been super crazy. Life is good. Alicia is very into princesses and is becoming a real little lady. DJ is my 14 year old 3 year old, lol. He LOVES trains, trucks and really anything with a remote control or that he can take apart. We are looking at registering him for JK - WOW! Considering going the catholic school route, as they have full day JK and K, while the school they are at now only has 1/2 day. I think they both are ready for the full day and our school is not transitioning to full day next year. Have to make that decision soon! DH is looking for more part time work, so that is keeping us on our toes too...although his current employer's hours have really picked up since Xmas. I am still dealing with some pretty major health stuff, so its been hard to keep up with everything.

    Really? 1st grade?! I can see this being Miles. I have quite a few years left of our house being overtaken by tracks. *sigh*

    Really? No buses? Is that common there? What do people do? I would love that! I'm dreading the bus rides. Miles will be on the bus for 2 hours a day. I can't even think about it without wanting to cry.

    Hey ladies! It's been forever and life has been busy! We applied for 2 magnet and 2 charter schools for kindergarten. Grace's current private school is closing at the end of this school year. DH has his 3rd interview with Google on the 25th. The benefits, job atmosphere and perks are incredible. I'm so exciting for him but we'd have to move to either Boston, southern California, Pittsburgh, NYC or Seattle. It's going to be so hard for my parents. I hope to see them somehow every month, may be take turns flying. I don't mind leaving FL but I'd love to take my parents with me. We've decided that if DH gets the job the kids and I won't move until June and stay with my parents until then. I don't think it's fair for Grace miss out on her dance recital or Pre-K graduation. Ben will be 2 in just over a month. Planning his party for April 6th. Lots of things up in the air right now. I'll keep you posted! Best wishes to you all and your little ones!

    Yes. He's passed all the interviews and has his final one on the 19th. Google is paying for his flight, hotel, rental car and food for 3 days. We are in the process of trying to get a plane ticket for me to ride along so I can check out the area at the same time. Very exciting and scary stuff! Salary and cost of living with determine it all. I'll keep ya posted!

    Ugh. I'm soooo bad now about coming onto pg.org.
    Zoe turned 3 months last week! She's rolling, laughing, grabbing toys, and just generally a very easy, happy baby.
