First Day of School...really?

Today my princess started 3rd grade. She is growing up to be such a sweet, responsible, respectful young lady. I can't believe that she is 8 and in 3rd grade. It seems like just yesterday she was a baby and needed me for everything. I am so proud of who she is becoming but I really miss my baby!

She picked out her own clothes this year with very little direction from me. She even decided what she was going to wear for her first day of school all by herself.

Luckily she did allow us to take pictures before school began. It has became quite the tradition around here so I am thankful for another year.

This is the first year she just said "Bye" without getting upset. I am so glad that she loves school and was ready to go back. She will also start S.A.G.E. this year, which is our districts gifted program. She is smart, just like her mom! Mommy loves you big girl! I hope you have the best year ever.

Not Me Monday

My first "not me" Monday. To read all about the details head on over to My Charming Kids blog and if you do your own not me Monday you could win a sweet prize!

I did not quit paying attention to my 11 month old son for just a few seconds to find him with a fly in his mouth.

Not me!

I did not get really lazy yesterday and decide to just give said baby a shower with me even though he loves his baths.
Nope, not me!

I did not evaluate my daughters suitcase when she returned by smelling clothes to decide if
they were clean or dirty. I wouldn't ever do that.

Not me!

Now really we had a pretty good week so not many Not Me's this week. Just the disgusting fly incident that I already tweeted about.

Luckily he's cute, really cute, or not sure what I would do with him. :)

Oh and if you are into papercrafting go here for a chance at some FABULOUS blog candy!

Take care,

New developments...

We are back from our weekend at the lake. It was mostly enjoyable although I did end up on baby duty more than I would have liked.
The great mom that I am remembered the camera...too bad I forgot to load the SD card so no pictures were had.
In the last week or so baby Gavin had started waiving, got two new teeth and stood for a few seconds hands free (JUST TODAY!!!). He is re
ally getting big and won't be a baby for long, it is truly amazing how fast they learn and grow. Poor little guy was down for about 5 hours with a fever today but seems to be recovered and in to everything again.

Here is a couple pics from our last lake trip since I failed this weekend:

On the deals front, make sure you go here and get your $10 in free food from Schwan's delivered to your door. I just ordered 16 corn dogs and my total was $.06!

Take care,
