a little boy...

growing before my eyes....

This was taken in Sept of 2007, we were heading to preschool.

This was August 2008, we were on our way to Kindergarden.

And here is this year, August 2009, we are heading to First Grade!!!

This little boy of mine just made my heart thump this morning. His dad put Molly in the bed with him and she licked him and ran around until he was up! In fact within minutes he was awake shorts, socks and tennis shoes were on! Luckily he kept his shirt off until after breakfast. He isn't someone who eats right away, so naturally Molly recieved all his attention. He was being extremely sweet this morning and chattering away to his little puppy.

I couldn't help but watch him in the corner of my eyes all morning.... he's a little boy. He has changed. His body has changed, at his recent well appointment we realized that he is in the 75%(tile) for height.

I am feeling very blessed with the young person in front of you. He is really brave. Other kids like him because he is friendly. One of his favorite things about school today was math. The other was music. He said that it was a little bit scary today, but that he was okay. The lunchroom still overwhelms him with the noise. He took his lunch. Turkey and cheese lunchable and watermelon with water (his favorite drink).

little of this...

Have I forgotten about this place or what???

Work, though not as busy as last year, has been pretty steady. Add two kids and a new puppy to the mix and there you have it, no time to lay out thoughts of your own here on the poor neglected blog of mine. What am I saying, there has been no time for me to even have those thoughts...

Did you catch that? New puppy? Here she is, Molly!!!!

The kids just love her. Look at that little face and body, how can you not?

Tomorrow my little boy goes to first grade!! We met our teacher the other night and she has me very excited about this upcoming year. I watched her as she greeted the children coming in and the way she knelt down and spoke to them one on one and was very refreshing to witness.

On another note, Corbyn lost another tooth and has spent the night off for the first time!!
