Today was Colton's first day of school...he was so ready to go...he was ready way before his brothers were and couldn't seem to wait to be a "big boy" and go to school like his big brothers do. He did so well pretty much telling me and his daddy "see ya later" and have a good day, but I'm ready to move on with my life now...kind of thing. And no I didn't cry or blubber like a baby. ( I did get a little teary eyed when I pulled up to the light leaving the school, but that's all.) Honestly I was just so proud of him and how well he did and how well I know he's going to do. Just very very proud. Here are some pics from his first day:
He started with this outfit....but then wanted something like Austin was wearing today so he had to switch to his new Power Rangers outfit...which I initially was going to put him in in the first place...guess he knows best. Colton showing his attitude with his spikey hair!
Miss Cores asked Colton to find his seat and start kneading the clay into a ball for her. He had a nice brick of blue clay...of course in true Colton fashion..."I want the yellow one." To which Miss Cores replies "I need you to use the blue today please." To which he of course replied..."I like the yellow one better." Of course Miss Cores told him maybe another day he could have the yellow, but today he was to have the blue. Oh my little determined independent one. I hope Miss Cores knows what she's in for. Here is a pic of him leaving school today...he said he enjoyed kindergarten and liked school a lot.
Though (to no surprise to me) I guess I need to work on him not talking when someone else is talking because I guess he did get in a little trouble for speaking while Miss Cores was speaking. After school he of course in true Colton fashion tells me..."No, she was talking while I was talking." Oh my...I guess I need to go over a few of the "good manners" rules again.
Overall it was a good day. My neighbor took me out to lunch with her daughter Alaina who was home from school to our favorite restaurant The Yucatan. Very tasty! Chips and salsa!
Then hubby brought his mom's Endeavor over for me to clean and detail this afternoon...guess he didn't want me to be bored or depressed...as he said "I didn't want you being all depressed today so I thought I'd keep your mind busy." I thought the honey do list was supposed to work the other way around ;-) It really wasn't all that bad and yes it did keep my mind busy.
Well needless to say I'm tired...these getting up early in the mornings mean I can't seem to stay up as long, which I guess is a good thing.
Oh, BTW...looks like I'm going camping with my little sister and nephew this weekend....can't wait. My boys have never been "camping" before. Should be a cool trip!

Lots of rain here...It has rained...no...downpoured off and on for the last two days. Hoping that the first day of school (Wednesday) is nice...I hope!
Speaking of school, getting ready. Backpacks are packed...clothes are washed and ready...two oldest boys are partaking in a last sleepover with Papa and Gamma tonight...I think we are officially ready. Austin (though he says he's not) is ready, Colton is more than ready and can't wait to get started...Brennan...well Brennan I worry about. He as some of you know and may remember had such a hard year last year...mainly due to his teacher...I'm just worried about how this year is going to go for him of course. This year he switches classes so he'll have 4 teachers instead of one. He'll be responsible for keeping track of his own homework and making sure he writes down all his assignments and all. Just worried about all the changes and since he had such a hard year last year I know just from talking to him that he's worried and not looking forward to this year. Been doing lots of praying.
Oh speaking of Brennan, he gave his heart to the Lord yesterday at church...so proud of him!
So not much else to top that so going to call it a night. Happy Monday all!

Well got things to go do...have a great day.

Hard to believe it's been a week since the concert, but this is the last vid I'll share for a little while anyway ;-) This was one of my favs from the concert and one of the last songs he sang...very intimate and beautiful...listen to the lyrics...they're beautiful!
More later...lots going on.

Another awesome Jeremy Camp song...one of my favorites in fact. No matter what happens in life or what I may face I should walk by faith cause God is always there.
Last night of VBS...it's been fun to work with the kids...they are so cool. I am tired though...a good tired. It's been a long week. I'm hoping to go and start some school shopping after VBS tonight if I feel energetic enough. Wish me luck!
Happy Friday to ya!

Going to keep this short...another awesome Jeremy Camp song...just had to share it. VBS was CRAZY tonight...the crafts tonight didn't go as smoothly as the previous night...I misplaced my glue stick, had to improvise stuff...and thank God hubby is helping or I would have been in BIG trouble. Anyway, I have to go cut out stuff for tomorrow's craft, so enjoy the music...more hopefully tomorrow.

Well I'm back from the Ohio State Fair and the Jeremy Camp concert. First of all it was so HOT!! But worth it just to see Jeremy Camp!! The show was so amazing!! I can't put it into words...He played for about an hour and a half, no break and just rocked for Jesus! It was incredible! The Afters who opened for Jeremy were great too. Even Kevin enjoyed the concert and he's not a huge fan of concerts...that's how good it was. So if you get a chance see Jeremy in concert...you won't be disappointed! Above is one of the songs he sang....I'm going totry to post one video a day this week of Jeremy's just because he ROCKS and he loves Jesus...what more can I say. Thanks to Jess Gress for getting us the awesome tickets! Hope you are having a good week!
