I can't believe I haven't blogged about this yet! In Sept we found out we were expecting baby number 4! We were thrilled, and after waiting an eternity, we told our families and scheduled my first ultrasound.
Mark just happened to be able to come with me, and I've never been so happy to have his support. As I got prepped for the ultrasound the tech put the wand to my abdomen and said "baby, baby."
I didn't get enough pictures because my phone was full, but Oliver chose his favorite breakfast, lunch and dinner, followed by his cake with homemade buttercream frosting.
His gift was the electronic "Twenty Questions" game. We frequently play twenty questions while driving in the car so the idea that a machine can guess what you're thinking is like magic.
Oliver is a very sweet, thoughtful, and mature five-and-a-half year old:)

Mark always finds fun things for our family to do. We heard about this free fan appreciation day for the Milwaukee Bucks so we went downtown to watch the scrimmage, and enjoy some stadium food.

Mark helped me to transform our office area into a little school-room.
We picked up this little number at a rummage for $15
This year, we're using free curriculum online, so we created our own binders to add a little flare to our mornings:)
One of my favorite parts of starting the school year, as a child, was always getting a box of school supplies from mom and dad. We followed in the same tradition with Oliver and Finley. Grandma Kelly even got them some goodies to add to it.
There he is! Picture perfect! He is such a good boy, all the time and school is no exception. He has made "teaching" a breeze, and is even still excited about school at this point.
We're so proud of him. He's like a little sponge, absorbing everything he's taught. I even heard him explaining phonetic rules to a child on the playground.
Way to go Oliver!
