And he's off!

D started his "official" year of kindergarten today! He is repeating it this year to get a lot stronger in reading readiness. He was bouncing off the WALLS at home, due to excitement, plus a good dose of anxiety in there, even though he knows the teachers, the school, etc. It's overwhelming for a little guy. Mommy was a bundle of His classroom last year was the only class in the kinder wing with a door. The others are open! D is prone to try to escape if he gets frustrated with what he's doing, so thank goodness he has an aide a LOT during the day! Here's to a great start to a new year!

Teacher Survival Kit

It's the start of another school year, and at our house, there is lots of excitement! I started a tradition last year of making a Teacher Survival Kit for D's new teacher, and we had a lot of fun picking out items. Here's what we ended up with! It's very similar to last years, but D is repeating kindergarten so since the teachers are next door to each other, I wanted to keep it close. Pics to come tomorrow of D's big day!

Happy Coming Home Day!

Four years ago today, I went to the CPS office, signed my heart over to one special little boy, and brought him home to stay! It's been one hell of a ride, but I wouldn't change it for the world!! He's grown so much!

Four years ago, at age 2

This past Christmas, at age 5.5

Another tooth...gone!

So D has had a VERY loose tooth for awhile now. He's worked so hard to get it out, and mommy even took a few tries at it, but just couldn't work up the guts to yank it. Well, this morning, D woke me up to yell that "it came out, mommy!!! I got it out myself!" Apparently, he'd REALLY been working on it all morning. So YAY!

So proud!

After the tooth excitement, we went to a luncheon at church, for single parents and back to school. D got his school supplies!

They even had face painting there!

And after the luncheon, we celebrated the missing tooth with some yogurtville yumminess!

We hit up Harry Myers Park with some friends who brought their fishing poles. D had actually never been fishing before so this was a new experience for him! He LOVED it!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!! We had a VERY busy but a very awesome day! First, we headed to my coworkers house for a cookout with her and another coworker/plus her DH. Then after that, we headed to a cookout at my friend's house. It was mostly her family there, plus another friend, and omg were there a LOT of little boys!!! lol The kids had a BLAST though, and we went swimming afterward. D and I headed out before the home fireworks were set off, but that meant we got to see a lot of fireworks from the highway all the way home which was really neat!

At Tamra's house, chillin in the pool...

And now off to Providence Village.

Sea World!

For D's birthday this year, we took a trip to Austin and San Antonio. We spent one day at Barton Springs in Austin, but D HATED it, as it was so cold! So, no great pics of that. Then the next day we went to...Sea World! D was crazy excited, and did GREAT!

Ready to see Shamu!

And there's a baby!!

About to ride the kiddie roller coaster ALL BY HIMSELF

"Hi, Momma!!!"

D said "That's the fake Shamu, but I still like him"

Thanks to the trainer who held the dolphin's snout so D could pet him!!!

Feeding frenzy!
