1st day of School

We have almost made it through the first week of school. Andrew is in the 2nd grade and Logan a big Kindergartner. I cannot even believe it. I have been looking forward to this,Logasn being in school and now I have 3 hours to my self and I find myself really truly missing him. For 2 years now we have been best buddies. They are both excited and like their teachers. Andrew has Miss Hicken and Logan has Mrs. Jones. I put Logan in afternoon Kindergarten because he is not a morning person at all! I am lucky to get him out of bed before 9:00 am. but oh no this whole week up at 7:00 and dressed mind you with the alarm. I may have him up at 9:00 but dressed now that is like 10-11 when he feels like it. So now from 7:00 am to 12:30 when I drop him off I hear is it time for school yet, when do I go to school mom. He's killing me. I love that he is in afternoons. We eat lunch together and hang out all morning just him and I. It is so nice. We have some good talks over breakfast. He is growing up so fast no more baby left in him he's all grown up. Andrew started scouts last week and absolutely loves it. He gets to perform his first flag ceremony this week at pack meeting. I don't know if it is my hormones kicking in finally from the hysterectomy or what but I have been a mess this week too much happening too fast. My little boys are growing up too young me and I am not ready for that. Can't they stay little forever? It has been a good week for us. Tim is off on another hunting expedition with his brother so I am flying solo this weekend I am sure they will come back with some pretty cool photos I will share when they return. I don't know if there are any of you that are avid sportsman but Todd (Tim's brother) wrote an article in the Sportsman's Voice about their Alaska trip. You should check it out.

Happy Birthday Andrew!

I can hardly believe it Andrew turned eight last Sunday the 3rd! Thursday was a hard day for me. Andrew got to go to his first cub scout meeting and I will admit i shed a tear after I dropped him off. That night was back to school night and Logan is starting Kindergarten my baby is all grown up going to school. I thought I would throw a party but I am actually kind of sad to see him go. No more baby things or little boy things they are growing up so fast. I t feels like yesterday when they layed Andrew on my belly and I was so overwhelmed and over joyed to finally be a mom and two year later Logan what a blessing they have been in my life and how proud I am of them. Andrew is growing up so fast. We did not have a Birthday Party because when he is baptized in a few weeks we are having a big party then so I took him and his best buddy Tanner Davis to Jump n Jax. They had fun but after an hour they were bored so we left and went to McDonald's for lunch. He got the whole Indiana Jones of the Crystal Skull with a little help from all Grandmas and of course Dad. I think Tim buys these so he can live vicariously through his boys he can have an excuse to play with them at 37. We came home and Andrew and Tanner played with Legos all afternoon. It was a great day. Sunday we had Grandma & Grandpa Abelhouzen over for cake and ice cream and I decorated my first birthday cake ever and I thought it turned it great. I wanted a "8" cake so I made one and it was so plain so I made it a race track. Will post tomorrow the first day of school photos!
