Back 2 School

One of these boys is not like the Other!

Can you guess which boy loves school? The other...well, not so much!

Not every kid loves school and not every kid has a smiley face on the first day. Not every Mom has the perfect shot of that first day of school. Some of us will deal with the reality of the kid that doesn't like the first day of school so much. But why does it have to be me? hahahaha!!

My friend Rene....says that her son will pose for pictures and turn his head so she can get the profile shot! What? I'm astounded when she tells me these things. Rene...has the perfect scrapbook Mom's dream kid! Every event, every occasion...becomes the perfect scrapbook page! *sigh* un-be-liev-able!!

So my kids....although not the perfect scrapbook kids, although not the cover layout kids that most Moms dream about.....they are mine and I love them just the same! They are just real...not perfect....not always in place....kinda wonky, kinda squirmy, kinda loud, kinda kiddish....and so not perfect! I wouldn't have it any other way...that's just life...real life around my house.

Happy First Days of School!!

The last days of Summer

It's no secret that Summer is my favorite time of year. I love the hot sunshine, swimming, short hair cuts, flip-flops, and watermelon. I was happy to have a long 3-day weekend to enjoy the last few days of Summer vacation w/ the boys. I was more relaxed than I have been in months, happier than I've felt in weeks....soaked up as much Summer as possible!!

Signs of a Busy Life.....

What can I say, I knew that going back to work would make my life busy....I knew that juggling a full-time job, family, hobby, cabin, house, guinea pig would leave little time for attending to details. The day before we left for vacation, I saw these two things that made me realize..."I need a break". It's August! My calendar still on the month of "May"? It's Summer.....stale peeps from Easter in my cupboard? Yep! It was time for a little vacation.....

Decided to take the boys to Disneyland and it was just what this busy life needed! We enjoyed our time as a family, enjoyed relaxing, fun at the park, fun just being together.

Here's to a great, busy, but fun Summer!
