First Day of FIRST GRADE....

Logan survived his first day of FIRST GRADE
better yet - so did I!

He ate in the cafeteria and liked it.
That may not sound like a big deal
if you know Logan it's a HUGE deal!!
He has a few staple favorites
getting him to venture out is rare!
So, that was a success.

We both really like his teacher
- Mrs. Cole -
seems like she is going to be wonderful.

I love the fact that they wear uniforms.
Everyone looks so nice each day.

All the children seem really happy to be there.

I guess Logan's only concern, so far, is that
they do not get much recess time.

I don't know where the time goes. . . .

yesterday he was born
this week he started 1st grade.

All Alone

I'm sitting here all alone - with nothing to do....
Logan left on a mini-vacation with my dad (Papaw)
first thing this morning.
I have to admit that I am a wee bit nervous about this trip.
Logan has tried spending the night with my dad before
has never made it past midnight:(
He is 7 hours away for TWO nights.....
he is going to have to "make it".
I don't know who I feel most sorry for
(if Logan gets homesick)
my dad or Logan.
I also don't know who was more excited -
my dad or Logan.
My dad invited me to go, as a last thought,
I know he was just trying to be nice.
He didn't want me to go - he wanted Logan all to himself.
Logan called me about 10:30 a.m. this morning to tell me that
he had just spotted an ANT EATER!!
He said, "Mommy, I just saw an ant eater.
Papaw said it was a deer but it had antlers
they were pointed to the ground
trying to eat ants so it must have been an ant eater."
What a weekend they are going to have!!
It's been a LONG time since I've gone a day
not been with Logan.
Even when he stays with my mom for the weekend I go and visit.
I'm just beside myself!
We went to Meet the Teacher last night.
Logan will be attending Hudson PEP
for the next 5 years and after last night
I think this was a good choice.
I have asked at least 100 people (w/o exaggerating)
what they think of Hudson PEP
I can't find anyone
has a negative thing to say about it.
That is a relief.
It is so BIG compared to PCC.
Alittle overwhelming.
We had to stand in line to get school supplies....
we had to stand in line to get t-shirts,
we had to stand in line to put money
in his cafeteria account,
we had to stand in line to meet the teacher
(our room was so WILD),
we had to stand in line for EVERYTHING
it seemed like.
Logan has a locker -
you would think someone gave him $1000.
He has 2 people from his Kindergarten class
in his First Grade Class (makes me feel better).
He was walking the halls like he knew what he was doing.
I just watched - amazed. He is growing so quickly.
It just feels like my heart is being ripped out at times.
He told me he didn't want me to walk him in -
not even the first day.
I thought I was going to die....
thank goodness he changed his mind!
He gave me permission to walk him in on
THE FIRST DAY ONLY....yeah, right!
(The teacher just "happened" to tell me that
I could walk him in the First WEEK...woohoo).
Okay, I promise pictures within a week.
I will add Darin's b'day party pics
Lo & Papaw vacation pics
(I sent my camera with them).
Logan and I both start back to school on Monday
so it will be a hectic week. But I will try to get the
pictures on ASAP.
Oh yeah, Logan gets to test for his next belt in
Taekwondo on Tuesday...
I'll have those pictures too!
Hold your children all you can - they won't want you to forever.
Many Blessings!

Time Flies

Wow! It has been over a month since
I've written anything.
I am sorry.
This will be just a quick little blurb
and I will elaborate over the weekend.
The month of July brought:
Logan getting even closer to
Summer School - Algebra - an A - WooHoo!!
Jackson's 7th Birthday!
Darin's SURPRISE 40th Birthday Party!
It was a great month!
One last thing - can't resist sharing.....
Wednesday night before bed,
Logan was saying his prayers
(the night before my final)
and this is how it went...
"Dear Jesus, please help my mommy
with her stinking test that I wish she didn't
have to take because I'm tired of her
doing homework all the time. AMEN."
Out of the mouth of a babe.
I had two immediate feelings about his prayer:
First, I felt so guilty -
I knew that I had neglected him
over the four weeks I was in the class
Second, I just wanted to laugh (I DIDN'T).
How much more honest can a person be!?
I bet Jesus was laughing!
I think He likes for us to be honest in our prayers.
I believe Logan was just that!
