First Day of School

Dillon was excited to start Kindergarten at Booker this morning.

 The new school year means new shoes, new backpack and a new lunch box.  He picked Spiderman for all three.

 He wanted to make sure his super heroes were in the picture.  In his hands he is holding Sinestro and Batman.  They made the trip in the car.

Dillon held Mama's hand on the way to the classroom.

 Ms. Jeffries - his new teacher - had everyone's names on the front of the door.  Dillon found his quickly!

After putting his backpack and lunchbox on his hanger, Dillon sat down and waited for a new day to begin.  He was very excited, and we can't wait to hear how the day went!

Kindergarten Orientation

Tomorrow is the first day of school! Friday morning, Nana took Dillon to Booker for Kindergarten Orientation. He met his new teacher, Ms. Jeffries, got his new folder & (his favorite part) saw a lot of dinosaurs, with mommies and daddies. We are looking forward to a great year!

P.S. - this week has also been birthday week! The 12th is my mom's & the 19th is my dad & sister's! Happy birthday to everyone!!

Wagon Ride

Cooler nights + Fun + Mama and Daddy needing exercise = Wagon Rides around the neighborhood!

Red Lobster

Most of the summer, Dillon has been asking to go to Red Lobster. He'd never been there, but he kept telling us that he just knew he would love it. So, earlier this week, Nana and Babba made a little boy's dreams come true.

He loved watching the lobsters before lunch, and the staff were even sweet enough to hold a lobster out of the tank so he could see it up close and personal after lunch. During lunch he colored and tried to convince Nana he could order lobster for lunch. Nana thought otherwise and convinced him to order fish. Dillon had a great time at lunch and has already told me he wants to go back!

Sprinkler day

Today, Daddy had the day off work, do we played in the sprinkler. In Dillon's words, it was "the most awesome sprinkler day, ever!"

Michelle and I have always had a great relationship. Sure, when we were growing up, there were times we screamed and pulled hair and scratched each other, but we also truly loved each other and have grown into friends as we are older.

My hope and prayer is that our boys will do the same thing. They have already begun to play together. Dillon asks for "sweet hugs" or "sweet kisses" all the time. (Whether Michael will do it is another story, ha!). They both love to rough & rumble but they also have their sweet moments, which make me hopeful they'll be good friends in the future...
