Kayla Painting

Kayla had a good first day of TYLER'S kindergarten.  haha  She asked mommy if we could paint.  I said, "Sure!"  She had a blast painting...herself.  :)  Check her out

Ain't she a cutie!  The next day she played with playdough.  Today, we went on a walk, painted AND played with playdough.  Notice how I didn't mention NAPS!  Yeah...because Tyler's school gets out at 3:30 her normal nap time wasn't gonna cut it.  So we have TRIED to switch to an hour earlier.  So far....not happening.  I am crossing my fingers she naps tomorrow.  We'll see.

First Day of School

Today our lives have changed forever! Like I mean FOREVER!   Tyler started school this morning.  He has been SO excited to start.  He has been counting down the days and keeps telling me, "Mom, I can't wait to start school.  I can't and I WON'T!"  haha  Um okay Tyler.  He's very dramatic.

Any ways.  Today was the day.  Yesterday there was some lightning and a power line got hit and started a fire.  Our power went out and didn't come back on until almost midnight!  It was REALLY hot in the house and I was so worried that the power wouldn't come back on and school would be canceled.  He would have been DEVASTATED!   So glad he came back on.  He was awake before 6!  He must have been so excited he couldn't stand it.

We took some pictures before we left.  Mommy took a couple of him getting ready to go.

He was just sitting watching TV waiting for mommy to tell him it was time to go.

Here we were getting ready to leave.

What a big boy!  He loves his new shirt and picked it out special for the first day.  He is also super proud of his new shoes.  AND his lunch box!  

We got to school and I handed my friend Kevin the camera ( he is here visiting ) so that I could help Tyler.  He took some pictures of Tyler's desk, his cubby and Tyler drawing a picture for the teacher!

Can you tell in the picture that Tyler is at least a foot Tyler then everyone!?  haha  My friend kept saying, "Oh my gosh, Tyler is huge!"  I kept saying, "I know."  He told me, "I didn't realize how big he was until I see him around kids his age."

He was supposed to draw a pretty picture for his teacher to hang up on the wall!  He decided to draw a picture of himself and write, "I am excited!"  Man I love this kid.

We left him and Kayla yelled "Bye Tyler!"  We drove home and when I went to get her out of the car I said, "Are you ready to go inside now?"  To which she replied, "No I go get my Tyler."  I said, "Nope we can't go get him until later."  And then she started balling.

We walked into the house and she moped around for about an hour wondering what to do with HER Tyler.  Finally mommy got out the paints and she had a blast!  I took pictures but they aren't on the computer yet.  Maybe later on today I'll get them up.  Then she had a bath and now she is about to have lunch.

The first day is almost over!  It's a minimum day so we pick him up a little after one.  I can't believe how fast the first day was.  I am sure I will get LOTS of talking the rest of the day and hopefully tomorrow morning he can sleep passed 6!  Here's hoping anyways.

I suck!  How horrible have I been at blogging lately.  I can tell you the reason...once I got my mac it seemed so much harder for me to shrink pictures.  I don't know if y'all know this about me or not BUT I like pictures.  I hate blogging without pictures and so for me it has been a constant struggle to get pictures shrunk so I can blog about them.

I am going to try EXTRA hard in the next couple of months to blog at LEAST once a week.  YOu heard me....don't hold your breath or anything but that is what I am planning.

I have missed lots of things I still wish to blog about and WILL still blog about.  So at thew beginning of the post if it is from a past event I will be sure to let you know.

Just so this post is not void of pictures here you go

We made it up to Alton in July for the 4th of July weekend.  We had lots of fun and I got to take some great pictures.  This is one of the many things I need to blog about.  So for now, just know it's coming.  Also, I FINALLY updated all of our outdated stuff on here.  Our profile, our pictures on the side.  Man it took me long enough.  And now I must go back to cleaning my house.  We are having the missionaries over for dinner and I need to get more of my house picked up and then start working on making the dinner.

See y'all next week....I swear!
