I have a second grader....my mind is having a hard time making that real. My heart is too! He did so well today, I knew he would. He is no longer my crying 5 year old who didn't want to go to kindergarten, he is a big 7 year old, who thinks school is great!
I am so glad. We have a great teacher, Mrs. Hoggard. She is new to our school and I fell in love with her when I met her. Will has been so blessed with great teachers since he started school. He said he had a good day and is enjoying making new friends. I think this is going to be a great year.

Well, today was Alex's first day of Pre-K. He is such a big boy and loves going to school so much. I dropped him off at 7:50a and picked him up at 2:30p. They said he did great, I had no doubt that he would.
Funny thing though, when I picked him up he only had one sock on. His teacher met me at the door and told that there was story there! Apparently my kid found the ant pile! The crawled onto his sock, "lots of 'em" (says Alex), so he sat down and took his sock off and left it for the ants to continue playing on! Mrs Brady didn't know it was Alex's sock, so when she was called over to see it, she threw it away! I laughed so hard! Alex said he didn't need a sock covered in ants! I can't blame him. So he had one sock on and one off when I picked him up! He told me all about his day and even got "treasure"! What a first day! I am so proud of him, he says that in a couple of weeks he wants me to drop him off, NOT walk him in! He is so big, I feel so blessed to be his mom! Will starts next week, so we will recap his day then. Be Blessed....

Okay, so this week has been a rough one. We discovered last Sunday that our a/c was leaking water...into the living room floor! Not fun! So, we look to find the source, locate and commence sucking up water. After 3 estimates on Monday and Tuesday, we have someone come and fix it on Wednesday, Thursday, and some Friday. (it took longer than he thought) Our air IS working again, there was one night and most of a day when it was pretty warm in the house, between 81-88 degrees. Remember it was 100 outside.... So, here we are. Saturday is here, the house is cool and life is back to normal, whatever that is.
Alex had open house on Tuesday, which was also Mike's birthday. He had to work, so the boys and I grilled steaks for dinner and had cake when he got home. We went and met Alex's teachers, who we think we are going to LOVE. School starts on Wednesday for him, Will starts the 19th. We are getting in school mode. Earlier bedtimes, back packs are ready, lunch box food purchased. I can't believe the summer is gone. It seems to have gone quickly this time. I really enjoyed getting to be home with the boys, I feel so blessed to have that opportunity. Here is a picture from the week, cause I think blogs are more fun if you get to see a picture! Be Blessed...
