Well three of my four boys are at school today... my step son Cody starts tomorrow. Travis is going into the 8th grade and his last year as a middle school kid. Next year he will officially be in high school!!! He also like to remind me that next year he will be able to get his permit to drive.......AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! Cody is going into the 7th grade and as far as I can tell he is ready for it. He is a social kid so he like being able to go see his friends. Dakota is going into the third grade and he is pretty excited even though he doesn't like to say it lol. He is ready to see his friends again to and make new ones. He is very worried about learning multiplication this year so he is stressing....he was thinking they were going to throw him into it on the first day and expect him to know it lol. He will do great though. Now for my baby Austin......."sniff"...."tear".....he is officially in Kindergarten!!!! He was soo excited to get ready today once he woke up. He ate his cereal and i went downstairs to start some laundry.. I came upstairs and he had hi sock, shoes and backpack on and was waiting at the top of the steps ready to go!!!!! I am so proud of all my boys and I can't wait for them to get home to tell me about their days.....I will keep you posted!!

Happy Birthday Travis!!!

Travis is my oldest son and he turned 14 today!!!! Can it be possible?????? He is one of the BEST boys you could as for as a son. He is kind and considerate and yes onry as all get out lol. I am so proud of him and who he is growing up to be. I know he will grow up to do AMAZING things in life. He makes me and his Dad sooooooo proud!!!! I am sure he makes his Grandma (punkin) and Grandpa a little proud to LOL. they are definatly a HUGE part of their lives. Travis grew up living with me and them at their home for four years until me and my husband married in 2001. He still recalls all that he loved about living there. He still goes out there every chance he gets and wants to spend as much time as possible with them. They help him through the good times and the bad and have some of the best advice anyone could ever give him. We are so lucky to have you all in our lives like we do and I know Travis will take any advice you all give him in any situation in life and save it in his heart to help him through any problems he might have weather they be present or future problems. He will always have you all to turn to and for that I thank you. Did I mention I AM ONE PROUD MOMMA!!!!!!!!

School Days

Ok this one is short but sweet.....We went to open house at our youngest boys Dakota and Austin's school. Dakota is going into the Third grade and is kind of excited kind of not to be going back to school. Austin is going into Kindergarten, he went to summer school for a few weeks and LOVED it!!!! We went in last night to drop off his school supplies and meet his teacher Ms. Miller. Austin went into the classroom like a pro. He was a little shy towards his teacher but overcame that pretty fast. He found his spot at the table and unloaded his supplies where he was suppose to and hung his backpack on a hook on the wall. He went over and sat in one of the bean bag chairs and looked around and said "why does everyone keep leaving?" We were busy filling out papers so we didn't answer him at that time so he just sat there watching everyone. We finished filling out papers and meeting his teacher and said "ok buddy get your bag we got to go " he stopped in his tracks and said "WHAT!!!! I thought we were staying!!!" He then looked like a deflated balloon lol. We said "we aren't staying tonight hun we are just here to meet you teacher and drop off your supplies." He hung his head and started to get upset and his teacher looked at him and said "AWWWW buddy we will see you next week though.....and then looked at me with her sad eyes like she felt so bad for him. He soooo has her already wrapped around his finger lol. Austin has BIG brown eyes and has a REALLY good pouty face! She is putty in his hands and school hasn't even begun.
