This morning

I was picking Gabe up to put him in my truck and when I did I said "SUPER DUDE!!!" to which he said "no mommy I'm not super dude". I said "well then who are you today?" and he said "I'm just a little boy who likes to play".

I just never know!

Long Summer!

Well, Jake went to school full time this summer. He took 18 hours of online/self paced classes. For the summer that is a lot! All that was done in three months. It was a lot of work and for the last month he did not much more then sit at the computer but he did it. He got his grades in last night and he got three A's, two B's and a C. Only fall and spring is left and then

He has waited so long for this. I am so excited for him!

First Day of School

Gabe and Maggie started school today. They were so cute. Gabe was more worried about what he had for lunch then about a new teacher. When we got there he wanted to take Maggie to his class to show his teacher and let her know that his baby sister was going there this year. It was so sweet.

Back in May I thought me and Gabe wouldn't make it through this summer. He gets so tired of being here at the office all day and with school being out I now had three days with him here. We were all going to go crazy! So I put him in a different school for a few weeks and he didn't really like it. I think we are just spoiled by New Salem. Anyways, July came and I didn't know what I was going to do with him but thanks to the help of my mom, Grandby, and Aunt Wendy he was only here a day a week. He had a blast with everybody!
Well, back to school today. I have been really worried about Maggie starting because she is a little more shy then Gabe and the only person she has ever really stayed with other then me is my mom. So I was worried to say the least. But when we walked in the room she saw all the toys she got right down and walked over and started playing. She didn't see me leave so there were no tears this morning. I have a feeling Thursday she will know what is going on and start crying when we walk in.

Gabe walked in like he owned the place! He walked to his old class first and I had to explain to him that he got a new classroom and a new teacher. He knew about the teacher just not the class room. He made the adjustment quick. As soon as he saw all the new toys he left me without even a goodbye. Sniff Sniff! He new teacher Ms. Melody was so happy to see him. She even told me that she had been waiting to get him in class. LOL

This and that

Gabe the Cowboy! I am sad to say this but this reminds me of Brokeback Mountain. LOL
He is going to kill me one day for some of the pictures I take.

Maggie's hair has grown so much in just a month. It is going to be just like Gabe's thick and curly. I can already see it now, everyone is always going to tell her how pretty her hair is and she is just going to cringe because she is going to wish for thinner straighter hair like I always have.

This picture she reminds me so much of Gabe around this age.

It is just so much fun to watch them both grow up. I really just wish they would stay this age forever. It is so hard at times but man, I just can't get enough of them.
