6th, Pre-K, MDO

Kayson (11) & Kouper (4)  have been in school for a couple of weeks now, and Kylar (2) started Mother's Day Out today!  We had a wonderful summer, but it's nice to have a routine back in place.  So far so good for all! Kayson has begun a new adventure at his new school. All the 6th graders in our hometown attend the same school, so he's had fun seeing some buddies from other schools. He is in the band this year and will be playing the trombone. He still loves playing his guitar and is continually amazing me with all of his talents.  Both Kayson & Kouper are riding the bus in the morning, together! Kouper really gets a kick out of going to school "in the night" as he says. The bus gets here super early at about 6:35 so it's still very dark.  I am proud of all of my boys and excited to see what adventures the school year will bring!

Throwback Thursday...

My parents were going through some old photos and gifted several to me. I am a sucker for photos, especially older ones of my younger days! How beautiful is my mom? She really is stunning. I wish that all of those yellow spots were gone from this photo, but I love this photo just the same. From my brothers' homemade vests (my mom isn't only beautiful, she is talented too!) to my Dad's cool Buddy Holly-esque glasses. What a sweet, sweet photo I will cherish for ever! Sidenote: I sure look like that little girl from Poltergeist, don't I?

Oh and I almost forgot... on the back of the frame remained the price tag from the frame.... 59 cents from Perry's. If any of you from where I'm from you'll remember Perry's!

Are my teeth shiny?

Kouper had a good check up yesterday! He was very curious about everything in the dentist office. He asked a million questions and was an excellent patient. When we got home he kept saying are my teeth shiny? Yes Kouper, they sure are. Koup is a good brusher and loves to brush his teeth. He's especially excited about his new Lightning McQueen tooth brush. Hopefully he'll continue to love to brush those pearly whites!
