The Princess........Looking back....

The Princess on her first day of her final year of preschool.
August 2009

She was so excited to be one of the "Big" kids at her preschool.

Her first day of Kindergarten

This day was sad for me, but exciting for her.
I was sad to be sending my baby off to "Big Kid" school and she couldn't wait to start!

They grow up so darn fast!  Can't she stay little forever!!??

My Boy......Through the years

This is the first in a series of post I'll be doing reflecting on the
changes my kiddos have made over the past few years.
A little of Mommy reminising if you will.

My Boy and The Countessa on their first day of Kindergarten.
August 2007.

They were both so excited for this day and a little nervous. 
Unfortunatly later that night he fell and ended up needing 3 stitches in his forhead!
What a way to start of his school experience!

My Boy on his first day of 1st Grade.
August 2008

He was so eager for school that year.
Seeing friends he hadn't seen all summer and making new ones.

His first day of 2nd Grade
August 2009

His cockyness is starting to show..........is that good or bad?????

First day of 3rd Grade
August 2010

He's toocool for school now! 
Getting this one shot of him took nearly 10 minutes and he REFUSED to remove the hat!
I couldn't even get him to give me a real smile!

Kids Binders

Binders are wonderful storage tools and I use them ALOT!! Here are a few of my Kid Binders.

I have a binder for each child to hold all the certificates and awards they earn. These include attendance awards, spelling awards, sports ribbons ect.

Then I have my Kids Craft Binder. This is for all those little activities I come across to try with the kids.

The Boys of Fall

The last four weekends we have been devoted to football.  My Boy, who was a Corner Back last fall and for the past three weeks is now a Middle LInebacker.  This causes a bit more anxiety on my part.

My Boy weighs 60lbs, this makes him one of the three lightest kids on his team of 36 players.
He was in the Corner Back position becxause he is fast, however his head coach felt he was being wasted in that position because he is such a strong agressive player.

This translate into he see's ALOT more action as a Middle Linebacker, which in turn causes me to wring my hands on the sidelines when he goes down on a tackle waiting to see if he gets up injured or unijured.

I was VERY proud of him on this Sundays game.  He DID get hurt, got the wind knocked out of him and twisted his elbow, but he got right up, shock it off and said he was good to go.

His team is 4 and 0.  So far two of the teams they have played this year were teams they lost to last year, so I'm sure you could imagine how happy the players are about that.

Here's to another great game played by
The Pintos!!!!!!
Go Green and Gold!!!!!!!!!!
