My baby was off to Kindergarten today!

Today was Jason's first day of Kindergarten! He was so excited to get on the bus this morning. He seemed to have a lot of fun at school! He wrote his name, drew a picture and colored another picture.

Jason before school. I made the sign so I can
remember the date when he goes to college!
Grayson wanted to be like his big brother
and wait for the bus with his bookbag.

The bus was running late, so they decided to sit
and relax while waiting.

the bus to bring Jason home.
I missed the picture of him getting off the bus. My camera was on the wrong setting. Chris got one on his phone though. He is excited about going back tomorrow!

Soccer Time!

So, I woke up at 7am on Wed, went to bed at 8am on Thursday. Then was back up at 10am, went to the Dr., then to get X-rays, then for lunch, and then to the dentist to have a tooth filled. I always have trouble with the Novocaine, so they have to give me extra. Part of my cheek is still numb (I was done at the dentist at by 1:30pm and its now 9:30pm.) I got home a little after 2pm. Meanwhile in the morning Chris took Jason to his new school to visit his new classroom because today was an open house.

After I got home we played a little Wii Fit. The kids like to watch me try to go skiing and Jason likes the running games.

Then at about 3:15, Grayson decides that he wants to go in the pool. So, I trek outside and put him in the pool. While I am hooking the filter up to the pool, Jason's new soccer coach calls and says that they are having their first practice today at 6pm (it was 4pm when he called.) He tells me that Jason should have cleats, shin guards, socks and a soccer ball for practice. So, Chris calls his friend Mark, who owns a sports shop and then puts Jason in the car and goes to Mark's store. He got a great pair of cleats, socks, and shin guards but no ball. Off to Wal-Mart tomorrow! Then at 7pm there was Kindergarten orientation for the parents, so I trekked off the the elementary school to meet his teacher.

Soccer practice apparently went very well. Here are a few pics of Jason's fun.

Summer Fun!

Here are some pics of the boys' summer fun this summer so far! We are hoping to get in some more fun before school starts this year. We will see what our funds allow us to do!

Jason loves his Wii. This is actually a picture of
him holding a Wii tin. It had gum in it.
Grayson playing at Grandpop's house.

Grayson in a "cage" at Chuck E. Cheese. Those of you
who know Grayson, know how funny this pic is!

Jason was so excited to see Chuck E Cheese.

Grayson relaxing on the pool. Unfortunately this pool broke.
I am going to try to fix it. The ring around the top has a big hole in it.

Jason likes to go under the water.

The boys love their pool!
