{Ahhh! First Grade...



J looked so big as he walked up to the elementary school this morning. With the start of school comes routine (and I crave routine!) but it's also so sad to see summer go. I started thinking "seriously, what am I going to do with myself now that Jackson is in school every day, all day?"

And of course, I came up with a list a mile long...

1. Catch up the blog on all of our fun summer adventures.
2. Box up the kids old clothes (not to mention my closet!).
3. Give the office a major organizational over haul.
4. Paint the breakfast nook table and chairs.
5. Hang lots and lots of hooks in the laundry room.
6. Exercise everyday.
7. Finish Sammy's baby scrapbook (and continue on from there!).
8. Make curtains for the downstairs.
9. Take guitar lessons.
10. Launch an etsy store...
11. Tackle my craft area, serious organization needed there!

etc... etc... etc...

The only problem is now I am Sammy's entertainment! He is such a handful.... so much fun, but definately a handful! Here is a sample of what our typical summer day consisted of!

Who am I kidding? I may as well just throw that list in the garbage and savor the time that I have with just him!

This just made me crack up!! It my life with a 2 year old boy to the T! Kate starts kindergarden next week and I'm a little worried that I'll be more busy and less time for projects just trying to keep Isaac entertained by myself! hahahaaa

Sammy! That stinker! Well, at least it was your toiletries all strewn about and not his poop! There's something to be thankful for!

Loved the blog! Loved the first thing on your list! And LOVED your video! Made my day!

Oh my goodness, I cannot believe that video! What is unbelievable is the fact that you were able to calmly record this without yelling. Genna came over to the computer as I was watching and pointed at Sam. Let's hope she's not getting any ideas...
