Shakin' His Groove Thang to Pre-K!

Zade and his "Tot" aka Tatum at the museum celebrating their last "official" day of summer. They are 2 wild and crazy kids. Lord help their teachers! Haha!

Well, preschool finally started! We have been waiting for this day for several months now! Zade has asked me about his new school all summer long!

This is how Zade would like to dress for preschool.  Um, no! Actually, if it were completely up to him there would be a cape attached to each shirt!

This was at Meet The Teacher.

  I have no idea why he was acting like this but this was the best we could do to get him to take his picture with them.  I mean, I had to go pry him out from underneath the table.  It was a little embarrassing.  Not a great first impression.  But totally Zade!

Now he's all dressed in his skateboard shirt and ready for school! He was so excited!

He's such a goofy kid! He keeps life interesting.

  He told me I didn't have to come in and that he could take himself.  Um, I work here Zade! Haha! He acts like it's his first day of junior high or something! Oh you just wait buddy, I'll be in full-on moo-moo, with curlers in my hair and no make up that day! Ha! I can't wait!

It just made his day that he was in the KI Sports Class and that his name was on a soccerball and a baseball for his seat and basket!

Now this is what I'm talkin' about!

 He hasn't been this tired since school last year! We had a hard time wearing this kid out all summer and Mrs.Watkins and Mrs.Peterson did in 5 short hours!
 He had a great first day! He said his favorite thing was playing on the playground and playing with play-doh! He made lots of friends but he can't remember their names!
I know he misses his HCP friends but I know this is the best place for him and me! We're gonna make lots of new friends! We're so excited!

The Luckiest Gal in the Whole Wide World!

These 3 people right here are why I'm the luckiest gal in the whole wide world! They made my birthday so special! I can not tell you how much I love them!

This is the amazing weather I woke up to today! Thanks, for the bday weather, Lord!

Matt made me yummy eggs and bacon for breakfast and served them to me in bed! Ahh, that's the life! There was also a tall glass of Diet Coke. Not a bad way to start my day!

He also got me this YUMMMMYYY cake from Woolley's Frozen Custard!
It's a chocolate cake with chocolate frozen custard inside topped with chocolate butter cream icing. Soooo fattening but soooo good. As my sister says, "What a way to go!"

This is the inside of the birthday card the kids got me. You can see their little scribbles on it. I tell ya what, I have the greatest kids. I used my birthday to steal kisses from Zade all day today.  He's already too big and tough for kissin' his Mama - (tear). Gracie will always be willing to snuggle with me.  She's my sweet girl!

This is the front of the card Matt got me.  The inside says, " From someone who still wants it!".  Such a typical card from my Honey! But let me tell ya, that butt is definitely bigger after that yummy fattening cake! But "What a way to go!" Ha!

Matt asked me what I wanted to do today. Since the weather was so amazing I decided we should go fishing.  It was so nice out! The kids like to fish and Zade is really good at it.  Gracie likes to dig around in the dirt nearby.  I love the peacefulness of it all.  We didn't catch anything but it sure was nice to get some fresh air.  I think it made us all much happier people!

When we realized the fish just weren't bitin' we went to the playground.
Look at that smile! Those front 2 teeth are coming in.  It kinda makes me sad.  She's not a little girl anymore. :(

This one isn't very little anymore either. 
 But I tell you what, these 2 kids make me so happy! Yes, they are rotten to the core - but I wouldn't have them any other way. 
Thank you to Matt, Gracie and Zade for making my birthday so special! I love you 3 more than words can say! This was such a great day!
