Nothing really to update on. My older brother flies in next week and Aidan is super excited! Yesterday Aidan finally got a new, bigger bike! We got it used from a local bike shop. It is a GREAT bike, one I could never afford as new and it's in great shape and all tuned up by the shop. Needless to say we got lucky we went that day because it had just been dropped off the day before and the lady said a bike like that doesn't sit for long.

Aidan ended the school year with straight A's so when we went to gamestop I agreed to get him a game guide to go with his new game as a reward! Here is something I put together to better compare the first and last day of school pictures. Just click the image to make it bigger if you need to.
Wow it's the last day of school already. It seems like only yesterday he started school. Aidan is very excited about summer. We were hoping to go to a carnival tonight with fireworks but the weather is not exactly cooperating. Fingers crossed! Aidan also asked to go to Gamestop after school to look at video games, ugh, boys. This summer are plans include visiting the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, at least one professional baseball game, possible a concert, and an amusement park (he wants to go back to Hershey Park). I am trying my hardest to be able to go on our annual trip to Virginia Beach also. Aidan's gymnastics is bumped from 9 hours a week to 12 hours a week (three, four hour days).
And now for the pictures. I told Aidan he could do whatever he wanted for the pictures that I only required two.
First up is the nice normal picture:
He informed me this was part of his happy dance...
so is this.
No idea what this was all about haha
WORD! (he told me he learned this on TV haha)
No idea what this is
If you look closely he is sticking his tush out. Every day when he got on the bus he would stop and shake his tush at me.
Leaving as a fourth grader, returning as a fifth grader, or at least that is what he told me.

Oops, it's now 3pm and I see that I didn't send this yet, sorry. He ended up having an early dismissal today because of the heat.

For the next 2-3 days the highs are going to be in the mid 90's but then go back to 70's for the weekend. Last evening the school sent out phone calls and emails reminding people to dress their children appropriately for the weather. Seriously? And here I figured I would send Aidan to school in sweat pants...

Wow, I cannot believe it's June already! Today there is a 60% change of "scattered strong thunderstorms," which means that it will probably only rain right at the start of the lacrosse game and get it cancelled the way this entire season has gone. Aidan has a ton of energy this morning and was out in the driveway jumping rope before the bus came...oh to be young again.
