School Daze

Kylan had his first day of Kindergarten yesterday. I went to drop him off and did really well until we were walking to the car. At least I held it together and didn't totally fall apart! I just got teary eyed thinking of my baby growing up! I guess he will be alright though. I mean, I'm not the only mom ever to have to go through this, right? :) I'm a baby! At least he likes school and he seems to be doing fine.

My handsome boy, all excited for school

Showing off his new Star Wars shirt

This is the 2nd day of school, showing the Transformers shirt now.

He had to show off his new school shoes. He says they make him run faster!

Caleb was riding his bike the other day, after all the rain. He made a slight turn of the handle bars and the bike tipped over, with him still on it. He fell right into a huge yucky puddle. As you can see from the picture, he got pretty wet. Look closer and you can see all the mud and grass sticking to his clothes. I tried really hard not to laugh at him, but I couldn't help smiling all the way home. When I went inside to get the camera I was laughing while I told Nate what happened. What a mean mom! :)

Right after the dip in the puddle

See all the dirt down the side of him, all the way to his sock!

Caleb's big day

Caleb had a lot of fun on his birthday. He got some fun toys and a new bike.

He wasn't sure where to look when he got outside, silly boy :)

Tryin out the new ride

This is the cake he wanted, a snake cake.

Showing off the jackpot!

He got a cool new color changing light saber

Happy 3rd Birthday big boy!

Caleb is 3 now! Time has flown by so fast. It helps me realize I need to take more time enjoying the kids, they are growing up so fast!

We've been waiting patiently for Hannah to get the walking thing down. She took her first steps when we were in Utah, at the end of June. She's just been taking her sweet time figuring out how to walk. But now she walks all over. Pretty soon she'll be running, she has to keep up with those brothers somehow. The video is coming...the site is having some problems, or maybe it's just me :)

Argh Matey!

We had a Pirate Party last saturday for both the boys. They got to invite some of their friends and they had a lot of fun. Here are some pictures of what we did.

They got to have a real treasure hunt, with a map and clues to follow.

A pirate ship pinata...

with all the goodies

We played our own version of Duck, Duck, Goose...we said Shipmate, Shipmate, Captain :)

We also played a game called Treasure map and they had to answer some pirate trivia questions.
