Into The Wild Blue Yonder
That’s right. Today’s the day, we’re off to fly the hopefully friendly skies from lovely Texas to Kentucky.Since our flight is at the crack of dawn 8:15AM and we’ll be getting to the airport around 7:15AM, I’m not sure when I’ll be back online.So I thought I would leave y’all with a reminder about the…
Between The Lions
or interpretation is everything.. Thanks to Chick-Fil-A, the kids got two Between The Lions CD’s the other day. They begged me to put them on in the car, so I did. As soon as the theme song started, Princess started singing and Monkey, not knowing the words, but no less enthusiastic started bopping along in…

Just Like Daddy
” I’ve Been Watching You Dad…. I Wanna Do Everything You Do” One of my favorite songs is “Watching You” by Rodney Atkins, it’s a fun, sweet song and it rings so so true. Our children see everything we do and they want to do everything we do. Our children, especially when they’re young are…
We all have to fake it sometimes
*AHEM* Kindly remove your mind from the gutter where it is currently residing and we’ll get on with today’s faking it post. Yes, even I ‘fake it’ in the kitchen occasionally. Sometimes I don’t have the time or the energy to cook from scratch. You can pick your jaws up off the floor now y’all….
Monkey’s Up to No Good
Such a cute little face, right? That cute face, is his biggest weapon of mass deception. He, is a devious toddler genius. Our latest escapade: Monkey: “Mom, I be right back. You stay here” This is said to me as he’s pushing a chair across the house into the foyer. Me: “Monkey, what are you…
LOVE the look on his face! Out of curiosity ~ is he going to preschool @ 3 or 4? I’ve been struggling with trying to figure out if my newly 3 year old should start this year, or if we can get away w/another year at home.
He actually started last year, 2 days a week. He was 2, nearly 3 (his birthday is Sept 20th). He’s about to be 4 and this year they start more curriculum.
Last year it was play, socialization, field trips, shapes, colors etc… things that sadly, a lot of kids don’t get at home. He LOVED it and it was a nice 2 days a week for me to get work done or errands!!
He LOVES it. Last year was more of a struggle on some days, this year… he could NOT wait!
OMG! I love the expression on his face! Priceless…
That is a frequent expression 😉
He was actually saying :FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL>> LET:S GO!
What a cutie! He definitely looks ready 🙂
My youngest starts kindergarten in a couple of weeks. She is excited. I am dreading it.
awe <3 y'all are both going to love it! I had one start kinder last year and she starts 1st on Monday and it's such an amazing time.
My favorite part of the day.. asking her what her favorite part of the day was and what her least favorite.. who she met.. what she learned.. and watching her change and grow and experience...
Thank you, Maria! I’ll keep the little monster 😉
Aw what a cutie!!!
Thanks, Courtney! 🙂 I tend to think so. (also.. looks are very deceiving)
Ooooh what a cutie! I will have to remember to take a photo amid the chaos on Monday 🙂
I know you’ll take a bunch! Enjoy the chaos, it’s what I love about it, it goes so (too) quickly!
So handsome. Love his expression. He looks so excited.
🙂 He was BEYOND excited and he had such an awesome day! His teacher told me he was such a great helper that she let him pick the book at story time. This is HUGE for him!
Presh. Ous. He looks so thrilled!
Thanks, Dawn! You’ve seen him, you know he never sits still 😉 He was practically vibrating on the fireplace.. out of about 20 pics.. 3 aren’t blurred from movement 😉
🙂 Thank you! I tend to think he’s pretty cute, sometimes 😉
Such a CUTE picture!!! Love it!
OMgosh – he looks like a handful! I hope the teacher is rested up!
oh i am SO excited for him 🙂
I am so glad that he was such a great helper for the teacher today! I’m so grateful that he is so excited about school. His teacher will fall in love with him. He is so funny and so kind that she won’t be able to resist him.
How cute is he and he looks as pleased as punch to be going off to school. He’s got a great looking book-bag there too.
he looks SO ready to take on the world! precious!
His excitement is very evident in this picture.
That is one excited little boy. Love it!
Ahhh, he’s all, like, “Heeeeeey!” What a BIG guy. So cute!
So yes… too cute little Monkey there. 🙂
BUT… one of the biggest reasons I love you? That box on the bottom by your hearth…. 🙂
*sigh* I truly do love me some ’80’s.
Ooooooh Nooooo! Don’t let him goooooo! 😉
Seriously, tomorrow? College!
Awww…he’s getting so big! I hope it was a great day.
Oh, he is the MOST adorable guy!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope it was a FANTASTIC day – for both of you!!!!!
