Good Times

After spending some family time together blessing a single mom friend of ours we cooled off in a nearby creek. Our friend told us about this park with a playground, large open field, gazebos and paths along a shallow creek that’s perfect for little ones to explore and play in. We explored and the boys found a path leading up with free-flowing water and a pool of water at the top. It was quite a delightful day of skipping rocks, exploring, swimming. We are definitely going back with cook-out food, corn-hole and friends!DSC_0470DSC_0475DSC_0480DSC_0487DSC_0489DSC_0496DSC_0502DSC_0499DSC_0501DSC_0504DSC_0505DSC_0507DSC_0509DSC_0517DSC_0516DSC_0519DSC_0528

School Prepping

Jordan and I and Hanson along for the ride had a few more things to get before school started.
#1- First Day outfit
#2- Back pack
#3- Time Together
He was so excited about his new cloths he had to put them on as soon as I paid for them! We found his choice back pack after searching 7 stores!!!!!!! Had McDonald’s lunch in the mall then he used his frozen yogurt gift card to buy he and Hanson a sweet treat. Successful shopping trip!

Mini Molars

Hanson continues his amazing developmental leap by getting not only 1 new tooth but 2 molars to boot!  These mini molars were 1st noticed yesterday when he was in his car seat and began crying (screaming) when Elijah and Morgan exited the vehicle. Oh how he loves his big brothers and was very upset that they left him. So now he has his 1st mandibular molars!

Meet the Teacher

“Meet the Teacher” a.k.a  “Parent’s Pre-Party” while at the same time “The Account Drainer” from all the school “donations”, club fees, lunch accounts that are paid!  Joseph, Jordan and Mary are all at the Intermediate school temporarily until the new Forest Oaks Elementary School is complete. The target date is to move in after Thanksgiving break, fingers crossed.  This is the first year for Jordan and Mary to be in separate classes which was received with some tiny tears from Mary and protest from Jordan that he wouldn’t be there to keep the bullies from teasing Mary!  Joseph quickly reassured them that his school had a strict NO BULLYING LAW and besides who was dumb enough to pick on her with 2 brothers in the same school! Mary was happy once we told her who her teacher was, her long time love interest Evan’s Mom!  According to Joseph, Jordan has the best room ever. . . the secret room!!! It’s a lone room down the end of a hall where the door is tucked back so you don’t see a doorway when you look down the hall.  Jordan LOVES his teacher, kept smiling sweetly at her and holding back hugs although he did give her quite a few too!
