Check up to tears!!

This morning Cole and I took off to a doctors appointment.  It was suppose to be a well-child exam for preschool.  It turned into "let's go ahead and do his kindergarten shots." Since he did turn 5 an all this month.  That one little words brought HUGE tears!!  Cole is not the best patient, but he has improved!!  He actually lets the doctors examine him without me having to hold him!!  The nice nurse even offered Cole 3 suckers since he had to have 3 shots. He was not interested!! Which is a big deal because Cole loves his suckers!!  No suckers, stickers or ice cream made these tears go away!!  When we finally got home a little baseball on the Wii has seemed to help!!

Happy 7th!!

Happy 7th Birthday
My Baby Big Girl!!

She wanted a  BIG bike that didn't come
with training wheels that had to be taken off.

She rides it like a champ!!

Cole waiting all day asking every hour
if it was time for Lauren to
come home from school!!

A bike ride to the park was too much
to wait for!!!!!!
Both the kids had their birthday this month!!!

1st Grade !!

We had Lauren's 1st Grade orientation on Sunday. She was very excited to see her very own desk. She was able to put all her school supplies away in her desk!! Her teacher seems very nice.  I hope she has a wonderful year!!

Her first day of school was today. 
She was up and ready with no fuss today and we actually made it on time!!

I have to admit I've been watching the
clock and I'm ready to go pick her up!!

9 more minutes :)

Can't Sleep

It's 0350 and I'm wide awake!! Yes, I took Benadryl to help but that didn't seem to work or maybe I need a knew drug since I been using that one for the last 10 years.  I've slept my six hours........so now I'm wide awake at this wonderful hour.  Sitting here I am checking blogs and catching up on facebook, while enjoying a wonderful watermelon Mike brought home for me!!!

So much has happen since my last update which was long long ago.......

1. Finally finished all the remodeling on my house. Exterior painted, new shutters, and kitchen completed.

2. We are all now under one roof.  Short story.....Mike has a house and I have a house.

3. My house has been on the market now for 1 whole week. ( keep your fingers crossed ) I going to get one of the St. Joseph statues and burying it in the yard!!!

4. Lauren is all enrolled in her new school. All her 14,758 school supplies are bought and new schools clothes are all washed and hanging neatly!!

5. Our Baby Boy turned 5!!! We had a little party. Just Me, Mike and Lauren!!

6. We are planning to have a big birthday party for him and Lauren (she's getting ready to turn 7).  It's kind of nice that they had no problem sharing their parties.  We haven't done that for the last couple of years. They choose to go back to The Flip Shop again this year!!

7. Lauren had her dance enrollment last Friday. That starts next month!! Miss Sherry did a little remodeling also.....It looks fabUlous!!!

and I think that may be it in a nutshell!!

Later today brings....dentist appts, lawn mowing, picking up our pictures from Calotype (YAY!!!) and lots of time at the pool!!
