Colin's First Day of "School"

Well, it was really Mommy's Day Out, but we called it school at our house! Colin was so excited he was running around the house all morning repeating, "It's my first day of school! It's my first day of school!" Of course, I had to serve him his breakfast on the red "You are special today" plate that his brother ate off of last week on his first day of kindergarten.
He wore his backpack all morning, even while eating his breakfast! He was soooo excited

The obligatory "first day of school" pictures on the front porch!
Look at my big boy!

Outside the front door of the church where Mommy's Day Out is held!
Posing in front of the class bulletin board in beside his new classroom! He was so engrossed in playing "race cars," he didn't care that I was leaving. Mr. Independent!!
When I picked him up 3 hours later, he was playing outside and proudly sporting the new crown that he made that morning!
Looks like he had a great day! So did Mommy, but I must say, the three hours just flew by!

We have a K!!!!

A kindergardner that is! For his first day of school I decorated his chair and breakfast area with balloons and served him his breakfast on the "You are Special Today" plate! Such a fun tradition that my parents started with my brother and I! I tried to make his pancake in the shape of a didn't turn out that great! Oh well, Gehrig seemed to love it!
I packed a little note in his lunch box. On the car ride home he told me that he got his note and read it himselfand loved it. And then asked me if I could put a note in his lunch everyday! Awwwww!

The obligatory first day of school pictures on the front porch! Another tradition started by my mom!

Seriously, how grown up does he look here???

Soooo excited!
Gehrig and Evan before school in front of their new lockers!

Just like last year, Colin thinks that he fits right in. He is always so surprised that he has to leave with momma!
I could have just walked out without saying good-bye and he wouldn't have noticed...I didn't, of course!
After the pledges (to the American flag, the Christian flag and to the Bible) Mrs. Curry had the parents and student hold hands in a circle around the classroom and said a prayer over the kids, the parents and the school year...what a wonderful little school Clovis Christian school is and what a wonderful teacher Gehrig has. I just know that it is going to be another fantastic year at CCS!

Evan, Jadis and Gehrig after their first day of can tell they were pretty tired.

We asked Gehrig what his favorite part of the day was to which he replied, "EVERYTHING!!!" I guess that you could say that it was a successful day!

I've been missing!

Wow!! I have been a terrible blogger lately. It has been well over a month since my last update, and truly, I have so much to share with you, like our trip to Houston, our trip to Arizona, visits from grandparents, Colin's surgery, and Gehrig's golf camp and tournament. So, why the slacking? Well, I must admit, we have been super busy, just enjoying summer and all of our little trips, but something else has had me occupied.
I have started up a new blog. Why? Well, go check it out and see! I am really excited to share it with you!
