Santa came to Jacob's Preschool!

Emrick wanted candy, she did not want sit on Santa's lap.

Jacob loved Santa and made it very clear that he wants a Terrible Terror puzzle for Christmas!

A post? But you just posted a video yesterday, Mandi. What's going on? Well, I really just want to tell you all about Jacob's schooling. Quick like. I am so amazed by the things they are teaching him in preschool. PRESCHOOL! I didn't learn the stuff they are teaching him until first grade. Since beginning school in August Jacob has learned:
-How to write his name
-Simple math problems like 4+3=
He learned how to write them, read them, and solve them!
-The other day he was in his room and he wrote me a note that said, "No mom I love you."
-He knows about the cover and the title page on books and knows what the author and illustrator do.
-He knows what a period in a sentence is and what it means. Also exclamation points!
-He is a pro at making patterns!

I'm sure there is a lot more, but those are the things that come to mind right now. He says/does something everyday that amazes me! He is getting really good at writing his letters and numbers but has to concentrate, which is hard for him sometimes. He wrote "Love Jacob' on the Christmas cards for his teachers and did marvelous! I am really loving that he is learning this stuff so quickly, and he really seems to like learning it! Makes my heart so happy!

Snow Day!

have some really fun pictures of the kids playing in the snow, but blogger won't let me load them. So, you're loss. Sorry, but I can look at them any time I want seeing as they're on my computer and all... Otherwise you could go to facebook and look at them there. Jacob LOVED the snow. Emrick tolerated it. She was definitely ready to go inside when it was time.

The 'i' button is still really hard to strike on my keyboard. I have no idea why. And I also never noticed how often you have to use that letter. Burger says he has no problems with it. So, he thinks I'm making the whole thing up. Now, why on Earth would I make that up?!?

We all have really nasty colds here at the Oldenburger house. Yuck. The kids seem to be feeling a little better but Burger is right in the middle of his and I just started to get my cold today. Hooray!

We made the kids beds into actual bunk beds a week or so ago. You know, the way the beds were meant to be from the package... I was nervous about Jacob falling out of the top bunk, but he hasn't yet. It's worked out really well so far, and now all the kids toys can fit into their room!

The last picture posted here cracks me up big time! They were playing Ants in Your Pants and having a great time. Burger's face just kills me.

Jacob has a Christmas concert on Tuesday the 14th at 6PM, in case anyone is interested. He has been practicing all his songs and loves it! He was Student of the Week this last week and had an awesome time sharing himself with his preschool class. He got an award from the principal and a little frog beanie baby that he loves, because it's green. And that's his favorite color! How did they know?!?
